Yesterday’s Humpday Giveaway contest was kind of special: it requires a time and partial financial commitment, which is why we weren’t surprised to have fewer players than usual. We appreciate that you guys who did decide to play took this opportunity seriously: the prize—$559 toward Barista Camp registration, for camp October 13–16 in Southern California—requires that the winner pay the remaining $300 of camp registration (the cost, which includes meals and lodging, is $859 total for BGA members) and figure out their own transportation to the event, which is being held at Rancho Las Palmas in Rancho Mirage, California.
This amazing gift of $559 towards camp registration is being offered by a longtime specialty coffee industry person that I’m retty sure most of you know, or at least know of. She’s awesome, and she’s dedicated to your success. She’s simply making this contribution out of the kindness of her own heart, and wants to remain anonymous.
OK, so onward—let’s find a winner for this out-of-this-world prize!
Forty-four of you entered this week’s Humpday Giveaway, which is super awesome—that’s means 44 of you really want to go to camp (and hey, if you don’t win this $559, you can always try to raise money in your community in other ways!). But there can be only one winner…
So the trivia question for the current (August+September 2013) issue of Barista Magazine was…
QUESTION: WHAT KIND OF BREWING DEVICE DID ERIN MCCARTHY USE TO WIN THE WORLD BREWERS CUP CHAMPIONSHIP IN MELBOURNE?
Answer: Kalita Wave!
We went random.org, generated a random sequence of all the entries with the correct answer (which was pretty much everyone!), and found our winner.
Congratulations, Renee Gabel!! You have won this outstanding gift of $559 toward your registration at the Barista Guild of America’s Camp October 13–16 in Southern California!
We will be contacting you shortly with information about getting the ball rolling on securing your spot at camp.
Thanks to everyone who played this week! And be sure to come back and play Barista Magazine’s Humpday Giveaway again next Wednesday for more totally awesome prizes!
