My contest was the Global Citizen thing they posted a few weeks back. You had to use their website and "share" stuff through social media to earn points. Once you had enough points you could enter to win tickets to a whole bunch of concerts all over the country, including sasquatch. I don't think very many people went through the time to gather those points, so I must've had a good chance of winning since I had the maximum of 3 entries!
FUCK YEAH I'M SO EXCITED! SASQUATCH BEGINS IN 3 DAYS! YEEEEEEAHHHHHHHHHH

Sweet. Sounds like you were a bit more diligent about it than I have been. My friend is a huge stoner, so it's hard to get him moving too quickly on these kinds of things. We've been going to the Gorge together since '94 and if the guys at Blu eCigs don't come through, this might be the first I've ever gone without him. It'll be kinda weird.
I've been trying my ass off to win a free ticket for my friend. He went with us to Sasquatch in 2011 and we had an absolute blast. It was a random coincidence that he was going to be in town right before the festival starts but he just graduated from grad school with his Master's degree so he is too poor to afford to go. He would have the free time and motive to go if I could get him a free ticket, which I just did. I'm the best friend ever! He also just seriously got his fucking MASTERS degree so he needs a festival to celebrate to the fullest potential.
I think in all I've entered over 20 contests to win a pair, and some of them had daily entries so if you count that then I've probably entered almost 40 times to win a ticket for this guy. I work from home so I've got all the free time on the computer in the world to do this type of thing though.
Also, I know he hasn't posted again yet, but since I won tickets then I will no longer be using the ticket that joshatemycookie offered me when he won his pair. I'm not sure what his plans are, but if he still plans on giving one/both away to a boardie then someone else might be in luck!
Thanks! Happy fucking Sasquatch indeed. I haven't even seen this friend who I'm giving a ticket in almost a year. It's absolutely perfect timing that this is working out. I knew Sasquatch was going to be possibly my favorite ever this year, but this puts it on a whole new level I did not think could be achieved.
As soon as I got the email this morning I called him and he didn't even know how to react he was so excited. He is driving up to Portland from Sacramento today, so I'll be seeing him tonight.
