Mandingueira Holiday Giveaway Winners: Congratulations!

3 01 2009

Blue Snake Books

First off, thank you to everyone who participated in this contest!  It was genuinely nice to hear from all of you, and whether or not you participated this time, I hope all of you are further encouraged to comment for whatever reasons in the future. Now, without further ado…

The winner of the Mandingueira on Facebook exclusive draw is Isabella Chan.  Congratulations, Isabella! Please send me your mailing address ASAP so I may send you your copy of Capoeira Beyond Brazil.

As for the general draw…okay, well, so here’s the deal.  I thought I’d do something REALLY COOL, and actually filmed the draw (I used my cabaça as the receptacle) so you guys could watch and all be in on the process.  Unfortunately, everything but my camera refused to cooperate (i.e. WordPress, QuickTime, Youtube, and this other file management site I used to rely on), so I wasn’t able to upload the video. And believe me, I tried!  There was background capoeira music and a little “Congratulations!” sign at the end and everything!  So in (sad) lieu, please imagine the berimbau equivalent of a drum roll as you read the following:

UPDATE: IF ALL ELSE FAILS, TURN TO FACEBOOK!

The winners are…

  • skymandr

  • ebcpirulito[at]gmail[dot]com

  • Inglijh

Congratulations to all the winners!  Please send me your mailing address BEFORE MONDAY so I can post your copies of Capoeira Beyond Brazil out to you before I leave for Montreal (again, my flight is on Wednesday and I would seriously appreciate not having to include 5 copies of the same book within my 23kg baggage limit!). If for whatever reason you don’t want or can’t have the book, also let me know ASAP, please, so I can draw a new winner. Otherwise, I hope you enjoy Capoeira Beyond Brazil, and to reiterate, I will be writing a review of it within the upcoming weeks.

Thank you so much again to everyone for participating. If you didn’t win this time, look on the bright side: the universe now owes you some other form of good karma. :)  Finally, thank you to Blue Snake Books for sponsoring this contest.

I look forward to hearing more from and meeting more of you in 2009!
