Win a free ball python contest is over!

We’d like to thank all the people who signed up for the free ball python contest that we were running. As of 5pm EST today (8/15/09) the contest has ended. The winner will be chosen tomorrow at 5pm tomorrow with specific instructions for verification purposes. Once verified we will be in touch with BHB Reptiles to complete the transaction.

There were over 200 sign ups for the contest, but over 50 people were disqualified. All of them for not verifying their email address. Sorry, but we weren’t willing to risk entering email addresses into a contest that the owner hadn’t taken the time to verify. We also manually removed a few entries because they seemed a little fishy to me. I’m sorry, but freebpcontest1@email_address1, freebpcontest@email_address2, freebpcontest@email3 etc, etc, etc stinks of multiple entries from the same source. Rather than taking a risk I made an administrative decision and removed all entries of that kind.

We’re going to be hold another contest at the beginning of September but the only way you will know about it is by being subscribed to our RSS Feed. Please note this is different than being subscribed to the email feed, but more contests will be held through that method as well in the future.

  • Rob

  • Jones

    All I can say is thank you for holding the contest and promoting this wonderful hobby. Best of luck to everyone.

  • Benjamin

    I think you guys made a good decision as to delete the cheating people!
    I’m excited about Daytona!

  • Benjamin

    Also i attempted to subscribe to your RSS Feed through google. I am unsure if it has or not. could you let me know?

  • PetSnakes

    No problem, Krysta

  • PetSnakes

    Yeah it does suck Rob, but it was expected. We got the ones we could, but I’m sure there were some people who got away with it.

  • PetSnakes

    It was our pleasure Jones. Plan to hold more contests in the future.

  • PetSnakes

    Thanks, deleting them was the least we could do, lol!

    Wish I could make it to Daytona, but work isn’t letting me do anything like that right now.
