Yay! We’ve got some freebies to give away to one lucky Ranger’s Blog reader. It’s nearly time for the Isle of Wight Walking Festival – now officially the UK’s largest walking festival. From May 9th to the 24th there are over 300 walks to choose from – and much of the festival is absolutely free. There’s even one walk with The Virtual Ranger himself, in person, and not surprisingly it’s got a hi-tech theme. So yes, I’m absolutely going to say it’s great because I’m in it.
The nice people at the Isle of Wight Council have given us this goodie bag to give to the lucky winner of our Twitter competition. You get a T-shirt, some badges, some leaflets, a nice yellow lightweight rucksack (not in the picture) and the highlight, a special edition Walking Festival 1:25000 OS map of the Isle of Wight. Find out how to enter – for free – after the jump. Here’s how to get your hands on the goods. If you’ve already got a Twitter account – and I know quite a lot of readers have – you’re already half way there.
Answer this simple question using your wit, charm and cunning: What sort of walk would you like to go on right now?
Submit your answer by sending a Twitter direct message to @virtualranger on Twitter. You’ll need to have a Twitter account and be following virtualranger (that’s me) to do this. The best answers will be repeated here on The Ranger’s Blog. The best answers will be the ones we like the most, predictably enough. The winner will be picked at random from all entries. That’s right, you can win even if your entry is rubbish. So what’s keeping you? Rules
- Entries will only be accepted by Twitter so can only be 140 characters in length.
- Entries must be sent as a direct message to the virtualranger account and include the text iwwf so we know it’s an entry.
- No multi-part entries!
- You can enter as many times as you like.
- All ages are welcome.
- Non-UK readers sadly are not eligible to get the prize as we can’t afford the postage, but you are welcome to enter anyway if you like.
- The competition runs throughout the festival and closes at midnight on 25 May 2009.
