On June 9th we announced the first ever gCaptain reader contest! To recap:
The first 10 people to sign up for the three main sections of our site will receive a free $10 Starbucks card and thank you letter. All qualified users who fully register in the month of June will receive a small prize.
Trivia – A $50 card will be given to the person who answers the question:
Why did we choose Starbucks for this promotion?
The winner of our $50 gift card was Richard Rodriguez of Friday Harbor, WA. Richard is a blogger, maritime training professional and the person responsible for keeping the waterways clear of boats near Anacortes, a job I greatly appreciated during my time on the Valdez-Bellingham run.
His winning Answer? Starbuck was the Chief Mate in Herman Melville’s book Moby Dick. Being the Chief Mate of a modern day ship exploring the world for oil, and having had some interesting captains myself, Starbuck is a character I can relate to.
For all others who participated I expect to get your gift cards in the mail the beginning of this week. As promised all who registered for our newsletter but missed the $10 drawing will receive a small prize of gCaptain stickers.
Thanks to everyone for participating and check back soon for our big News Discoverer contest which will be announced shortly.
