Who wants 30 years of FREE RAFTING?
Let’s cut right to the quick: We’re so happy about making it to the ripe age of 30, we’re going to share the glee with 10 creative fans of ACE Adventure Resort. We’re going to give away more than $30,000 in rafting.Yep, that’s right. We’re going to give 10 people FREE RAFTING trips on the New River for the next 30 years, and all they have to do to get it is come up with a clever video wishing us a happy birthday.
Here’s how it works: You (and your friends, if you like) make a video up to 30 seconds long. In the video, you come up with a creative way to say, “Happy Birthday, ACE.” You post the birthday video to the ACE page on Facebook (become a fan of ACE Adventure Resort, if you aren’t already) or on ACE’s channel on YouTube – you can post it as a video response to our “example” video, which is also on this blog page.
But here’s the catch: DO NOT just sing “Happy Birthday to You.” First of all, that’s not very creative. Second, there’s this whole copyright issue with that song (ever wonder why those cheesy theme restaurants sing their own cheesy, hand-clapping version of a birthday song?). If you don’t believe us, check out the Wikipedia article on it.
So, get your videos in by May 1. A panel of ACE judges will select 10 winners (if you get friends to help you out in your video, make sure it’s clear to us how many are competing for the prize – not to mention, how to get a hold of you if we pick you as a winner). We’ll announce the winners shortly thereafter, and we plan on showing those winning videos at our 30th birthday bash on May 16 and 17 (more details on the party in our next blog post).
Hopefully, we don’t have to explain to you that profanity, nudity, etc. will not score you any points; in fact, it’ll get your video removed. You should also check out the complete Official Contest Rules, while you’re at it.
Get to it movie-makers, and win yourself some free ACE rafting!
