Winner, winner …

OK, so a little behind the 8-ball with this one.

But we need to announce the winner of the last giveaway.

Who won this glorious package?

Who won this glorious package?

Before we get to that, however, this will be a quickie post to give away the last items. We don’t, at this point, have a giveaway — but I’m working with a few other people right now in hopes of getting a few things together so we can make sure the monthly giveaways continue.

That being said …

The last one we did was quite a package of items.

It included:

  • 2 Rattling Chains minis (1 Zing Snipe, 1 Zine Aerofoil)
  • Rattling Chains bag tag (only 20 were made)
  • Avery Jenkins signed Topps Allen and Ginter card
  • HyzerFlip t-shirt (Large)
  • Discraft bag (given at the 2011 Ace Race)
  • Vibram Sole (174g)
  • Innova X-Out Champion Sidewinder (170)
  • Innova X-Out Star Mako (180)

Not too shabby, right?

Anyway, time to give it away.

The winner of the glow prize pack was Jordan Potvin, whose “Like” of Rattling Chains on Facebook earned him the pack! Congrats, Jordan! An e-mail will be sent. Please get us the needed info within a week, or we’ll have to re-draw for another winner!

Thanks everyone for entering and keep an eye out for more giveaways coming soon!

If you have any comments, questions, thoughts, ideas or anything else, feel free to e-mail me and the crew at: pj@rattlingchains.com. Don’t forget to follow us on Twitter and like us on Facebook!

Win some glow plastic!

By P.J. Harmer — Rattling Chains staff

It’s that time of the month again — our giveaway time!

As daylight gets harder and harder to see, we wanted to give something a little different. So how about some glow plastic?

The discs, glowing.

The discs, glowing.

First, though, allow us to announce the last winner — of the MVP plastic.

The winner of the MVP prize pack was Tricia Lafferty, whose Facebook entry earned her the pack! Congrats, Tricia! An e-mail has been sent. Please get us the needed info within a week, or we’ll have to re-draw for another winner!

And now, back to the task at hand.

This month, we’re handing out some glow plastic. That includes an Innova Aviar (big-bead), with some custom art by Rattling Chains crew member Darren Dolezel. We also have two glow minis — a Rattling Chains one and one from the 2011 New Jersey Jam, donated by professional Bob Graham.

I don’t have the weight on the Aviar, but if I remember right, it’s about 172.

The winner will be chosen at random by RaffleCopter at the end of the giveaway.

The discs, not glowing.

Win a Rattling Chains disc golf pack!

By P.J. Harmer — Rattling Chains staff

It’s that time again.

We have some cool things we have lined up to give away on the site, so this will be the first of many more. We hope to do this on a somewhat semi-regular basis.

Have a chance to win this packet of goods!

Have a chance to win this packet of goods!

We’re switching how we do things a little with giveaways, though, as we’re going with the RaffleCopter widget below. It helps us verify that entries are being done correctly, which is what we needed.

It also helps us with a random winner based on the entries.

Here’s the best, too — it allows many ways to get extra entries to this giveaway. I’ll get into how the widget works in a moment, but let me tell you what we’re giving away, first.

This is a RattlingChains.com gift pack. It includes:

  • A DGA Breaker from the tournament we co-sponsored this past March.
  • Two (2) Rattling Chains minis, made by Zing Minis. One is an Aerofoil, the other is a minifoil.
  • A Rattling Chains bag tag. Only 20 were made (numbered 1-20) and only a few remain.
  • A Rattling Chains weatherproof/reusable scorecard.

The winner will be chosen at random by RaffleCopter at the end of the giveaway.

How it works: To gain entries, you have to do the items below. The first is mandatory — a comment on the blog — and you have to answer a question, which you can see when you click on that option.

Celebrate the holidays with a Rattling Chains giveaway

I hope everyone had a great day yesterday and that the holidays are treating everybody well.

And despite the Rattling Chains staff being on vacation this week and giving the site a break, something needed to be done…

giveaway… such as a major giveaway!

Since before we officially launched this blog, we’ve had many people donate stuff to be used for giveaways. Therefore, the pile is growing. With that in mind, I thought it would be good to make some packages up and have a giveaway where we’d give more than one thing away.

There are three groups of items we are going to be giving away. For each, there are specific things you need to do. If you don’t do exactly what is required, your entry will not count without notification. Any entries that require you to post comments below need to be separate. In other words, if you are entering two of the contests and they each require a comment, you need to comment twice and do it as required.

So make sure you read this fully before just entering or your entry might not count!

Also, though you can (and I would encourage you to do so) enter each contest, you can win only one. It would be smart to enter each, though, giving yourself better odds to win something!

Read on to see what you have to do to enter each contest.

Product review (and contest): Vibram Lace

By P.J. Harmer and Jack Trageser — Rattling Chains staff

Vibram has taken its next step in the disc golf market.

After months of anticipation, the Lace — Vibram’s first long-distance driver — was released to the public Nov. 23, or Black Friday as many refer to the day after Thanksgiving in the United States.

Reviews from around the Internet seem to be extremely positive for the new disc, which Vibram says is a stable driver.

When you get to Jack Trageser’s part of this review, you’ll get a more in-depth feel about the disc and what it can do for somebody with a stronger arm and with more ability to do what he wants with the disc.

My part is going to talk about the disc from the vantage point of a light-armed thrower and one who doesn’t have a lot of control over a disc.

Allow me to note I’m a Vibram user. The Ibex is one of my best discs as I can actually  get it to (usually) do what I want. I also putt with a Summit and, in the past, I’ve carried and used a Trak, V.P. and Ascent. So it’s safe to say I like Vibram’s products.
