SPPS 4th Year Anniversary Contest Week #4
Please read all of the following guidelines before posting in this contest thread to prevent you from making any inadvertent errors that could possibly disqualify you from winning the grand prize package. The rules and conditions could change from week to week.

Thank You

Hello all and welcome to our fourth and final week Sundragon Paintball Products & Supplies 4th anniversary contest thread. There was one contest per week here throughout the whole month of September. As the weeks have progressed, so have the bulk worth of prizes per contest. So have the difficulty of means to acquire the prizes. No special skills should be needed to participate in these SPPS sponsored giveaways. Rather than just one contest with a few prize winners, we have offered one grand prize winner per week here. Each contest week has signified 1 year that Sundragon Paintball has been in business. This is the last so hold on to your hats!

Just to keep everyone on the edge of their seats, unlike most all contests you've seen, the prizes to be distributed here will not be announced till the winner of the contest is announced. If you are reluctant to participate, you just may eat that hat mentioned earlier when you see the prizes given for participation, especially this one. Though for the most part they will, not all items will be Spyder related parts and products. Most assured they will all be paintball related.


There will be one primary winner each week. There will be two secondary winners chosen as well in case the primary either forfeits acceptance of the winnings, does not supply us with the information we require to safely ship the prizes to them or does not contact us within the alloted time frame listed below.

The primary winner has 2 days after the posted announcement of winning to claim his/her prize package so be sure to frequent these forums for results. If we are not contacted within that time frame, the grand prize goes to the next in line secondary winner. If there are no secondary winners, the prizes are forfeited by all. This primary winner must provide SundragonPPS with their full name, mailing address, city, state, zip code, full phone number and e-mail address through PM's(private messages) on these boards. If you don't know how to use the private message system here, you might acquaint yourself with them before the deadline just in case. If the prize package is returned to us for any reason at all(unless it is directly in our error), the primary winner unconditionally forfeits the package to the next in line secondary winner who must then provide us with the same aforementioned information in the same manner and conditions.

Any current contributing member of these forums may enter to win this contest without condition of race, creed, gender, position on this website or location of residence.

Any of these terms or conditions may be changed at any time at our discretion during the endurance of this contest or after the announcement of the winner has been posted. There will be no debate concerning our answers as opposed to yours by contestants of this contest. We will not be responsible for any late submitted answers because we were not conveniently available for you. We would like everyone to have a chance at these prizes so we ask that previous winners humbly refrain from entering the contests following their win. By submitting your entry, you are confirming that you fully agree to all the above conditions without objection or debate. If you do not agree to these conditions, we ask that you kindly refrain from entering this SPPS contest.

Thank you

Re: SPPS 4th Year Anniversary Contest Week #4

This weeks contest are for those geeky research nuts that seek free stuff, lots of free stuff. You may even consider it a website scavenger hunt so to speak. Similar to last week, you're just going to have to do a little thinking to earn this one. Listed just below this paragraph are the websites you will find the answers on:





All of the above websites are pledged sponsors of these SPPS contests.

1) Below are outlined 35 specific questions pertaining to these 4 specific websites.
2) Answering all 35 questions are not required if you don't know all of them. I'm not too sure that anyone will actually find all 35 so everyone has a chance at this. Even if you don't know the answers of some, by at least submitting a guess you still have a 50/50 chance of getting it right.
3) You may use any means possible finding out the answers to these questions.
4) You may even discuss the questions in this thread if you feel inclined. Only thing we ask is that you keep your posts on topic.
5) The greater portion of these questions can be found on these websites. There are very few that may possibly not be found on the websites listed.
6) Please do not contact me by private messages with questions or comments concerning the contest as I will not answer them. If you have any further questions or comments specifically pertaining to this SPPS contests, please post them in this contest thread. I will try to keep up on them best as I can. Please don't expect any clues. That would be unfair to others that may already have that answer.
7) The winner of this contest will be chosen by the number of correct answers submitted. You will gain 1 point per correct answer. If there is for any reason a tie, a tie breaker will be held for a final winner decision.
8) Once you have all the answers ready, please submit them through e-mail to, SPPSKontest@yahoo.com This will keep your answers confidential, out of public view. BE SURE TO SEND YOUR FORUMS NICKNAME AND WHICH FORUMS YOU ARE FROM SOMEWHERE IN THE E-MAIL!

We will not be responsible for lost or misdirected e-mails so be sure to get the address above correct with the correct title. Nor will we be responsible for the correct answer corresponding with the correct number. We suggest that you look them over very carefully before sending them, then save your answers somewhere just in case you need to resend them. Any e-mails with attachments, large content or improperly titled will automatically be discarded. A short note and answers only please. Unless there is a problem with transit of the e-mail, only 1 answer form will be accepted per member. May even be a good idea to post that you sent the e-mail in this thread so we know to look for it at Yahoo.
9) You have more than a week to submit your answers for this one so take your time. They must be received before the deadline listed below so don't wait till the very last minute either. The time posted on the e-mail must be before 11:59PM EST. That's eastern standard time.
10) Answer e-mail entry deadline is by September 30th at 11:59PM EST
11) The winner and prize package of week 4 will be announced some time during course of October 1st at our discretion.
