Hello Cats fans,
A Beautiful Night For Football.com (courtesy of a generous season ticket holder in section 23), has two free tickets (one pair), to give away for this Saturday nights game vs the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. Game time is 6pm and it's retro night, so it proves to be a fun evening.
There are a couple of catches. There is always a catch isn't there? There isn't much of one in this case, but there are two.
First, I am looking for a specific pair for these tickets. Father and son/daughter, Mother son/daughter, grandparent and grandchild, uncle/aunt and niece/nephew. Even a big brother/sister, and their little. Bottom line, and adult and a child.
The second catch, is that I need one or both of you, to write a story about the game. Minimum 150 words. I will be posting the story/stories on http://www.abnff.com/blog, so all that I ask is that I can at least post both your first names.
Also, I would like a picture of the two of you at the game, and if you would like to take more pictures to add to the A Beautiful Night for Football photo gallery, I would love those as well; but not required as part of this contest. The picture can be taken with your camera phone even. Just something to add to the story.
I unfortunately can not make this Saturday's game as I have a family event to attend, but I'll be watching what I can on television. I will make arrangements however, before noon Saturday to get these tickets to the winners.
So that's it. You don't have to be a writer. It's not about content, it's about what Canadian Football, community, or even the time spent with a loved one, means to you. Write whatever comes to mind. My only stipulation, is that the story has to be positive; "POSSITIVEly Canadian". Even if it rains the entire game, we lose by 50 points, and someone spills beer all over you, the object of this is to find creative ways to express the positives.
Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, and tell me why ABNFF should send you to the game. I'll announce the winners noon Friday.
