Well? I registered and it says there is a drawing.

So is this available to the first 75 folks or are only 75 folks going to get the tickets?

Confusing as usual.

I agree that it's confusing. The link takes you to the main county fair page, where I can find zero information about this giveaway. If you go to the ShopPleasanton site, it does suggest there's a drawing. I went ahead and registered, but I think the instructions need to be more clear - is this a drawing or not?

@ Gina- This is the text you receive once you enter:

Entry Received

Thanks for entering into our contest!

We will be drawing random entries from the list on 06/24/2011. We'll notify you if you're a prize winner.

Good luck!

That conflicts with what you posted in your message.

Ah, I didn't realize it was in the confirmation email. I'll make sure that gets corrected. Sorry about that and thanks for letting me know.

I love these people who complain even when they're getting a chance to win something for free.

Thanks for my tickets!

How did you get the tickets after registering?

Sorry, it might be free but you'd expect a newspaper to be able to clearly write a paragraph that the reader can understand.

There was conflicting information.

@ Gina - how do we get the free tickets once we have registered? There was no mechanism to download the tickets or directions on how to obtain them. Thanks for your help.

Did they post a list of the winners? It's possible my work spam detained my email?
