Win a Trip to the Official Launch

Postby Tonyblack » Thu Sep 17, 2009 11:31 am

Waterstones are running a competition to win a trip to the launch of Unseen Academicals in Wincanton and a football shirt signed by Terry.

Enter here.

Transport and accomodation are NOT included. :D

I think, to be perfectly honest, that what they are offering is a shirt that's signed that you have to go all the way to Wincanton to pick up. As far as I know, there's no actual charge to watch the matches. :wink:

Thanks Tony, I'm going anyway but I have entered but not ordered the book as I will get a copy from the Stout ones shop and get it signed. :D

I'm trying to find out more information about this as the Waterstones competition seems to suggest that you have to pay to watch the tournament - the prize is a signed shirt and two tickets to watch the tournament.

I'd assumed it was free to watch. :?

Ok - I've found out that it's going to cost about £1 - £2 to watch the tournament. :D

It also seems to require you to be a Waterstones card holder. :( :roll:

I got all excited there for a minute. Ah well, back to DIY planning. :)
If all is not lost, then where is it?

I thought the card was only if you were preordering the book. Have you tried entering without using a card number? :?

It costs you nothing to register for a membership card, and you get points for any book you buy and they can be redeemed against any book purchase for a price reduction. :)

Did anyone win this?

I paid my hard-earned pound, played for UU so got a shirt anyway and asked Terry to sign it (which he did)...then the team and Terry raided the cheeseboard. (yes, we really had one...and wine, and pickles and crackers etc...)
