The KSR/GOTC Tickets HUGE SEC Tournament Ticket Giveaway

winner

Last year’s winner in Central City

Ok it is time for a KSR Contest you will remember. It is the KSR SEC TOURNAMENT TICKET GIVEAWAY. We have two lower arena SEC Tournament books for the winner of the contest. Great seats and all you have to do is win the contest sponsored by GUY ON THE CORNER TICKETS.COM.

Now here is what you have to do. It is quite simple and will help you get to know this state of yours. Three simple rules:

1. Take Pictures of you and a friend at 8 Kentucky/KSR Landmarks:

We are giving away tickets and this a dual game. Below we have listed 30 towns across the state, with landmarks associated with KSR or its writers. All you have to do is go to eight (one for each title) of them and take your picture next to a sign proving that you are there. It is that simple. You, a friend and a picture at the sign. If you don’t have a friend to go with you, grab a person there and act like they are your friend…but you must have at least one other person with you in the picture. You don’t have to go to all 30…as a matter of fact, you get no bonus points for going to more than eight. But you HAVE to go to eight. They are spread all over the state so no one is punished for being in the West or the East. Go to Eight and you have a chance at winning.

2. E-MAIL THE PICTURES into KSR by MIDNIGHT TOMORROW NIGHT:

You must send the emailed pictures (eight of them) to all three of our email addresses, [email protected], [email protected] and [email protected] by midnight. We will then judge the pictures and announce the winner by noon on Wednesday. It is that simple

3. YOU CAN GET BONUS POINTS:

Simply by entering the contest with eight pictures, you have a shot to win. But if we have multiple people complete the process (which may happen…Drew thinks no, I think yes), then there are three ways to get bonus points, to help differentiate between the entries. Bonus points can be received via three methods:

(A) Creativity:

This is most important…if there are multiple entries, we will be giving bonus points for the most creative, funny, interesting, pictures. Whatever you think Drew, I and Tyler would like, try and make it happen. Creativity is HUGE and could be the deciding factor. So dont just take the picture, make it good.

(B) Length travelled:

This is created so that you can do multiple spots close to your area…but if you choose to travel long distances and do a great deal of mileage, we will consider that as a bonus factor.

(C) Celebrity Bonus Pictures:

If during your travels, you can get Kentucky celebrities, that could be the Governor, The Turtleman, Ryan Lemond, Dancing Guy or anyone you can fathom, to take a picture with you, those are bonus points. You just need some proof in the picture (maybe a newspaper or calendar) that the picture is ON MONDAY NIGHT OR TUESDAY. If you get someone interesting (Kenny Walker, Calipari, Heavy Hitter, Papa John, Bryan the Intern), that could be a bonus point.

So that is the game…now it is up to you to win it. IF YOU TWEET US PICTURES ALONG YOUR JOURNEY, we will use them on KSR…and maybe even give a slight bonus. We want to follow you as you make your trips. Send them to @kysportsradio, @drewfranklinksr or @mrstylerksr and we will put them up. This should be fun and I hope you guys will make it fun.

IF YOU DONT WIN , we will have consolation prizes, the niceness of which will depend on how many people enter. At a minimum, we will get you two tickets to a Rupp Arena home game next year, but if only a few people make the journey, we will do better. This should be fun and I hope you guys (and gals) will make it so.

    You need to know that Mid Continent doesn’t have its own gym. They play ball in the Mansfield high school gym. If you are looking for a gym to take a picture of then the Mansfield domed gym will have to do it for Mid Continent University

    The Corvette Museum is nice. At least when they are having a collection on display. The theatre in the rotunda is pretty nice too. Honestly, taking a picture of the JC Penney sign in the greenwood mall is better since that is where Delk, McCarty, and Pope came and signed autographs… I still have that shirt.

    The Quilt Museum in Paducah is a treasure. Make sure you go to Patti’s 1880s Settlement at Grand Rivers for a meal on the way (mile high meringue pie). We went to both on a sailing trip to KY and Barkley Lakes and enjoyed them tremendously.
