Just in time for Ireland’s World Cup warmups, our “unriggable raffle” competitions are back!
First up in this series we are pleased to team up once more with the good folks at RugbyWarfare.com, who have offered us one of their smart hoodies to the competition winner!
NOTE - there will be a bonus prize on offer in this competition…details will be announced here on this post later in the week.
Rugbywarfare.com was launched in 2012 with the aim of bringing expertly written content on training, nutrition and supplementation to the masses, for free. The company has grown since then and has now launched a successful and unique rugby clothing range. Unlike most other brands, RugbyWarfare focuses on design, fit and comfort.
As always, to qualify for the competition you will have to stay tuned to the HarpinOnRugby Facebook page throughout the coming week and follow the instructions when the posts are published. Below you will see a grid showing the days, times and number of qualifiers for each post.
NO. OF QUALIFIERS
The rugby match which will provide the winning square for this competition is Ireland’s World Cup warm-up v Wales on Saturday, August 8, 2015
The following extra rules are unfortunate but necessary.
the winner must provide an address on the island of Ireland
the competition winner will only be contacted via the social media account they used to qualify
only one entry per separate Facebook account is allowed each day, but it’s ok to enter once on each of the four days
each window closes 3 hours after posting – if all of the spots are not all taken, the extra ones will be allocated in a manner to be determined by the competition organisers.
when you are asked to leave an “exact phrase” this means you can use the phrase with OR without the quotes; also, since speed is a factor in the competition we will make allowances for typos once it is clear a decent attempt has been made to repeat the phrase
for some windows “edited” Facebook comments will not be permitted as entries…this will be outlined as part of the post where it applies
for transparency purposes your qualifying comment must remain on the social media post until at least two hours of completion of the rugby match that is to determine the competition winner.
be aware that Facebook have been known to display comments in a random order on the web; as competition organisers we will do all we can to ensure the timeline is properly followed in each window.
entrants’ positions on the grid are set and not open for discussion, nor are any other final decisions made by the competition organisers.
If you have any questions about the competition and/or its format or would like to sponsor one down the line, feel free to email we'd be happy to help.
BE SURE AND HAVE A GO AND BEST OF LUCK!!! JLP
UPDATE - FRIDAY, MARCH 20
This evening at 9pm on our Facebook page we have the final chance to qualify for the RugbyWarfare competition. There are 10 spaces left on the "unriggable raffle" grid and the first to leave the correct comment on the post will fill them.
HOWEVER....the good folks at Rugby Warfare have kindly offered a “snapback” cap as a bonus prize, so here is how we have chosen to award it...
Instead of repeating a phrase as your comment tonight, you will be asked to give your prediction for the final score of tomorrow's big Wales v Ireland clash at the Millennium Stadium. While only the first 10 will qualify for the grid, EVERYONE who leaves a prediction (following the guidelines laid out below) will have a chance to win the bonus prize.
Here are the rules for the bonus prize...
- Closing time for entries is midnight.
- You must make it clear which team you think will get which score. For example "14-34" will not be enough. You must say something like "Wales-14 Ireland-34" or even "W-14 I-34" will do.
- Your comment MUST remain unedited for it to qualify.
- Only actual comments will be accepted; in other words, do not click “reply”
- Only one comment per separate Facebook account is allowed. Where we see more than one entry from the same account, we will delete all but the first one posted.
- Entries which don't follow these guidelines will be deleted and thus cannot qualify for the "unriggable raffle" either.
- The first correct score on the timeline will be deemed the winner. In the event nobody is correct, then the first one the timeline to be 1 point out will win, then the first to be 2 points out, and so on until a winner is found.
Best of luck!
