February’s contest ended this week and I for one had fun organizing it. I’m sure at least one of you guys also liked it!
In March we’re doing things differently. It’s going to be more complex, with a few more rules, but overall I think we’re gonna have more fun this month. Introducing…
The March Race
This March we’re kicking it into high gear. I know you love spinners and I know many of you have one at home, and I’ve seen many of you brag about your spin times. So let’s race!
To win this month’s contest and the $50 prize that comes with it by having the longest spin time on your spinner. You must be able to prove this with video – the standard photo showing your time won’t be enough, or else I’m sure someone will win with a time of ten hours.
And that’s it! Enter the contest by leaving a comment below, and remember to link to the video of your spinner actually spinning for the time you say it does. I’ll be posting updates when the number one spot has been overtaken, so subscribing to the newsletter won’t hurt if you want to be up to date with the race.
Bonus round: the fastest ten spinners will enter a draw to win another $50 prize! So you can win a $50 fidget toy (or cash equivalent) by:
- having the best time on your spinner
- having a top 10 time and being lucky.
Based on the feedback I received so far I want to level the playing field so that everyone has a fair chance. I’m open to suggestions on how to make the rules fair for everyone, but so far the number one rule is:
The only “spin” that’s accepted is the natural one. No using compressed air cans, magnets or other contraptions that would aritficially drive up your spin time.
And… we’re off! Good luck and have fun!
Edit: many of you pointed out that the contest in its current form will give some spinner owners an unfair advantage. After thinking it over, you’re right. I’m open to all suggestions to level the playing field, but without outright banning any spinner. I’m thinking of adding an extra prize and having one prize for low cost spinners, one for more expensive ones and the draw where the top times from each category would enter. What are your thoughts?
