UPDATE: The contests have ended, and thus far I don’t see any further information regarding winners or anything. It also doesn’t say how/when the winners will be notified, so I guess if it gets to be mid-June and you haven’t heard anything, you can safely assume that that’s a no.
As for me, I still have my fingers crossed that he’ll make it to a convention up here in the Midwest at some point. I’m not holding my breath, mind you, but I am crossing my fingers.
About a week ago (or last month, depending on your point of view), I spread the word that Steve Whitmire would be appearing at a Comic-Con in Knoxville, Tennessee (it turns out that there IS more than one Knoxville in the country, so it’s worth specifying).
Later in the week (or earlier in the month, depending on your point of view), it was announced that he is also appearing at conventions in Fort Lauderdale, Florida and Raleigh, North Carolina. These “Supercons” are run by the same organization (which is why their websites look nearly identical), and each is hosting a contest which you can enter to win a meet-and-greet with Steve!
The contests end on February 6th, though, so you have to hurry. All you have to do is visit the following contest webpages:
You can enter through Facebook or you can enter with an e-mail address. Follow the instructions they provide; there’s a chance to make more than one entry for each contest.
Remember, the deadline is February 6th at 11:59 p.m. (I assume that’s Eastern Time since that’s the time zone both of those cities are in). Here’s a time zone converter for your convenience, but you’re better off getting your entry in early so you don’t have to worry about it. 😉
Good luck to all of those entering! May the odds be ever in our favor.
