12-hour raffle

February, 2007: Jamming at David's Barn. Photo: Polly Samson.You seem to have enjoyed my 24-hour contests, so here’s a 12-hour equivalent.

All you have to do, making use of just one number (between one and 100), is share a piece of trivia about ‘Remember That Night’. For example, the DVD was released in Germany on 17 September, or ‘Remember That Night’ has topped the Music DVD charts in 12 countries so far.

Your number is your raffle ticket substitute. You can only have one, and nobody else can have the same one as you (so, the first person to pick a specific number gets to use it).

Please get your entry in by 9PM (UK) today. Just one entry per person, please. If you choose a number that’s already been used, you will be asked to choose another, so please take note of any numbers already in play, or include a second choice with your post.

If your chosen number isn’t obvious, please make it so.

If, as the deadline draws near, you’re left stuck for entertaining trivia, you can take the easy way out and write something like, “My favourite live song is ‘Take A Breath’, which is track 12 on the DVD” (even if it isn’t your favourite track – I won’t hold you to anything).

Winners to be announced on Monday.

The prizes include a signed lithograph print, a Best Buy copy of the ‘Remember That Night’ DVD, a radio promo CD and a programme/pass from the European cinematic premiere.

Good luck, and have a good weekend.

  1. Exciting isn’t it?

    [I might even get my tombola out and pick the winning numbers tonight. – Features Editor]

  2. Have a great weekend then FEd, and fellow bloggers. Thanks for another entertaining week in Gilmourland.

    I’m off to ASDA to see if they do them Sacre Bleu players 🙂


    [Have a good one, Paul. – Features Editor]

  3. Howdy FEd,

    I was 48 when I went to see RTN…so I’ll take 48.

    If someone else has it, then 22, that’s when I showed it to my friends, on the 22nd of Sept.

    Have fun with this one, you cheeky monkey!


    [redfgnvlrkbvlwihfvwri. One number is left and that’s #37. – Features Editor]

    Haha, classic.

  5. Entry

    My number is 60 because David was 60 last year when the C.D was released

    [We’ve already had that one, sorry. – Features Editor]

  6. I would like to choose 6, as that is when I went to see the premiere of R.T.N. at the Odeon on 6th September and David spoke to me – unforgettable.

    [Not 37, the only number left? – Features Editor]

  7. I’ll take 37!! If it’s still left! I’ve watched the new DVD about 37 times!!!


    P.S. FUN contest, FEd! Wish I had woke up sooner!

    [Are you going to give a better reason than that? – Features Editor]

  8. 37 is enough for me. So break the bread and pour the wine.

    [What’s so special about #37? – Features Editor]

  9. [One number is left and that’s #37. – Features Editor]

    The amount of times you have answered the strap question?

  10. So who WHO got 37? LOL

    Cheers, Howard

    [Do you think Susan gave a good enough reason, everyone? I’m not so sure… – Features Editor]

  11. Hi FEd,

    37 – venues where David has performed tracks from OAI. Live dates (34) & Mermaid Theatre, Abbey Road and AOL sessions.

    Do I pass?

    Have a good early weekend…

    [That’s a good reason… Sorry, Ken, but Susan just beat you to it. – Features Editor]

  12. Why not take Penny, Ulli and anyone else who posted and didn’t get a number and put them all under #37. Then they can set up a mail chain to have the prize rotate between them if that is the lucky winning number?

    Talk about complex.



  13. Thanks to everyone for having a go. All numbers have now been taken, so the contest is over until Monday, when the four winners will be announced.

    Have a good weekend.
