3000 Beers "uchoose" Competition - Call to Arms

Discussion in 'The NAAFI Bar' started by Good CO, Aug 20, 2009.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

    Newsletter subscribers will have seen this, a great chance for a ready-paid event and a 'no-brainer':

    "Our sponsor, Towergate Wilsons, has launched a summer competition for units in the Armed Forces. The idea is simple: service personnel, and their spouses, vote for their unit before the 31 Oct 09 and the unit with the most votes wins 3000 beers.

    They are running two categories of prizes; 3000 beers for the winning major unit (established strength over 200) and 1000 beers for the minor unit (established strength 200 or less) and will deliver to any UK address (or UK military base in Germany) on a day of your choosing.

    Click here to register your vote!"

    The problem: RAF Coningsby is currently in a close second place and climbing and there are still plenty of units without any votes. Dry? Alcohol free? I think not, so please spread the word! I would be an unhappy Good CO if ARRSE's sponsor had to give 3000 pints to the RAF!

    Could we vote for the beer to go towards an Arrse crawl?

    Nice idea! Not in this case but I've asked them to watch this thread though so you never know for the future. The marketing director is recently retired Army and very supportive of the site (I hope you're reading this :) ).

    Voted, also suggested Holidays4Heroes as one of their charities.

    Trouble is that it's not a charity so I doubt they would be able to go for it. Worth a try though!
