The Great Plakias Forum Christmas Giveaway
« on: December 03, 2013, 03:14:12 PM »
Yes we have had Black Friday and Cyber Monday but they have just been the warm-up to the spectacular event that is the first Plakias Forum Christmas Giveaway... Hurrah!

I have not one, not two but three of these beauties to give away:



With one of these beautiful (if slightly not level) key-rings you will; always have something on hand to remind you of happy Plakias days, never lose your keys again, be the envy of your friends, wonder how you survived all these years without one and become infinitely more attractive *

All you need to do to in order to stand a chance of achieving greatness is to post a response to this topic.

In the event of there being more than 3 responses I will randomly pick the select few.

When I hear you ask? Oooh I don't know, in a couple of weeks time so you can have it in time for Christmas.

Good Luck!
* These statements may not actually be based on fact

Wow! What a mega give-away. How do you do it without Wonga sponsorship?

It is true Mike, with these fererro rocher magnificent trinkets I am spoiling you.
But (he says, tossing his golden locks alluringly) you're worth it.

It is also indeed true that these items were procured at great personal expense (read Photobox special offer*)

With interest now flooding in I have decided that the winners will be announced on Tuesday 17th of December at 21:15 (if I remember and if Eastenders and Holby City don't over-run for some bizarre reason)

* Special Offer was for 'Credits', said 'Credits' don't included postage. In the case of these fine items, postage was way more than the items themselves! Calendars turned out excellent though.

They will, obviously become very collectable when Plakias, as predicted on this forum, goes down the pan!

I think that in the interest if fairness there ought to be a high level skill question that only Plakias visitors can answer. I suggest - was that photo sunrise or sunset :) I have no idea myself as I'm still in bed at sunrise and indoors drinking at sunset :))

Wow!! and double Wow!! - I thought everyone (except perhaps the moaners) had gone into hibernation for the winter months. Loads of people visiting the site I see, but not much to say. It's amazing what a little "giveaway" can do. Everyone is suddenly inspired to get typing again - Well done Ploppy - I'm not asleep yet - and neither is the Dragon at sunset. Keep on exercising those digits everyone. :)

Maybe do it in the order of number of posts made (although I've just realised I still wouldn't get one).

Anyway the season's greetings to all regulars on this forum- surely one of the friendliest (generally!) on the www.

Now I don't know if it is early festive cheer or maybe I am giddy from the feverish excitement of the Christmas Giveaway but I have exciting news....

We have a new top prize for our Chrimbo extravaganza....



This measures 45" by 30" I think and i'm sure you'll agree would look fab adorning the wall of ones Lounge/Dining Room/Kitchen/Bedroom/Toilet/Shed etc.

It does of course mean that the exquisite key-rings are relegated to runner-up prizes.

Apologies to our non-UK friends but the postage will be prohibitive as the cardboard tube is somewhat bulky.

Note to self, the carpet is pretty grim and the ironing table is missing a plastic foot-end jobby.

I'll send you my address in anticipation!

Indeed Barny, I will point out that my size 10 slippers and the ironing board will not be dispatched to the lucky winner (in two minds about the carpet though)
