Last year, MyHeritage.com had a fabulous after RootsTech party. This year for RootsTech 2017, MyHeritageDNA.com is sponsoring a similar party. Attendance at the party, to be held on Friday night, February 10, beginning at 8 pm is by invitation only. Last year, my wife won a brand new Apple iPad Mini at the party. Pretty fabulous.
MyHeritageDNA.com has planned another event this year at the Grand Ballroom at the Marriott Downtown at City Creek across from the Salt Palace in downtown Salt Lake City, Utah. Here is a description of the event from the announcement.
This year's theme is "Amaze Yourself". In keeping with last year's legendary evening, karaoke will be back, plus light refreshments. We've also taken the entertainment up a notch and added new games and fantastic prizes. You could also be the lucky winner of a DNA test.I have been given the opportunity to give away 5 invitations to the event that include the opportunity for each winner to bring 1 guest.
Although I am not a fan of contests as such, I am holding a contest to select the five winners. Of course, you must be planning on attending RootsTech 2017 to win. Responses need to be by email to my address at firstname.lastname@example.org. Winners will be randomly selected from all those who submit correct answers between midnight January 12, 2017, Mountain Daylight Time (MDT) and Midnight January 13, MDT. All winners will be notified by return email on Saturday, January 14, 2017. Please only send one entry. Please do not enter if you either are not attending RootsTech 2017 or are not planning on attending the party, it is not fair to the other contestants. Also, attendance at the party is reserved to those 21 years of age and older.
In my last contest, I was still receiving entries weeks after a winner had been selected, so I suggest that you re-read the contest rules and stop sending in entries after midnight MDT on Friday, January 13 since I will simply trash all the entries time-marked after that cutoff time.
OK so here is the contest. It is ridiculously simple.
Go to the MyHeritageDNA.com website. Open the "About us" tab link and copy the first full paragraph and include it in your email. That's it. Send the email during the 24 hour period indicated above and then I will randomly select five winners and they will be notified on Saturday as soon as I get around to it. I will not respond to any of the other emails unless I choose to. It does not matter if you send in an early email, so don't worry about entering right after midnight; it won't make any difference when you send the email during the 24 hour period.
Oh, remember you must include a valid email address. If my reply email bounces, I will simply choose another "random" winner. If I get any spam-like ads from your company or business along with the entry, you will probably not be randomly chosen. I reserve the right to disqualify any objectionable responses.
