We are just about thirty days from the Dukes of Hazzard Fan Fair in Nashville, TN (and I haven't bought my airline tickets yet...whoa, gotta get on that.) In order to help get the word out about the event, Cooter's Place is running a contest on Twitter, and I think whoever came up with it is a genius, a Dukes of Hazzard Genius!
What better way to get people to do something you want than to give them a chance to win something for doing it. In this case the item to be given away is a signed 1/64 General Lee. But not just any signed 1/64. Ben Cooter Jones also wrote "Twitter Lee" on the car. This is the world's only Twitter Lee! It has taken Twitter by storm. #TwitterLee has been trending since Saturday. Maybe. The point of the contest it to spread the word about Dukes Fan Fair, so to enter, the entrant must retweet a message that mentions the Dukes Fan Fair. (Tell me that is not genius.) The aforementioned tweet is as follows:
follow @CootersPlace and RT to Enter #DukesFanFair June 8 Nashville win a TwitterLee signed by Cooter #DukesofHazzard http://www.cootersplace.com/contest
Now you have to have a Twitter account to enter. I made one a while ago just for contests, and if you aren't signed up, this is what everyone should do. The original tweet from @CootersPlace was sent out Saturday, May 4 around noon eastern. Sam, Dave, Shadley, Reis........you should all enter this thing. You can't just go out and pick up a Twitter Lee. They are very rare and highly sought after. Anyone would want one in their collection. Wait, I don't have one in my collection. It's that rare!! So fire up the Twitter account, enter to win this one of a kind collectible, help spread the word about the upcoming event, and tell everyone you know that the person responsible for this contest should be publicly adorned as a Dukes of Hazzard virtuoso.
The contest runs until Friday, May 10 at noon eastern. Check out the official rules at http://www.cootersplace.com/contest. Go enter!
