It’s no joke, it’s a raffle

Posted on 01 April 2011

Today is April Fool’s Day. This day is celebrated in the whole world. People play jokes with each other or release funny posts or homepages. I am not a big friend of this day and the jokes which will be played. Most of these are not very funny.
Instead of playing hoaxes or something else, I start a raffle today and boycott the April Fool’s Day. Yes you read correctly. You can win something today. Another reason for the raffle is the first birthday of my blog

Now you will ask you what there is to win.
My good old friend LAUFBURSCHE from Cologne send me one of his Hip Belt Pockets made with the new black Cuben Fiber. The LAUFBURSCHE Hip Belt Pocket has a volume of 1,5l and weighs only 26g.

What you need to do???
Not really much. Just leave comment and you are member of the raffle. It is so easy.

The raffle will finish on Sunday the 17th of April at 12:00 am. With the help of I’ll pick up the winner and contact him for the address. I ship worldwide and shipping is free. Everyone of the world can try his luck.

But that’s not all. The grandfather of UL in Germany Lighthiker also starts an interesting raffle today. There you can win a set LAUFBURSCHE Stuff Sacks (S,M,L) also made with black Cuben Fiber.

Have a look at his blog and try you luck. The Stuff Sacks are fantastic.

This is not everything.

LAUFBURSCHE wants to invite you to the next TULFT in Cologne on May, 1st.
The invitation to this meeting can you find on LAUFBURSCHES BLOG.
This meeting is legendary, although it took place only once. You can have a look at the workshop of LAUFBURSCHE and enjoy the weekend at a beautiful campsite near the river Rhine.

  • Thomas sagt:

  • Yvonne sagt:

    That their 1st April boycott is a cool thing 🙂 I do it with smooth. I’m several weeks each year in a tent and backpack out on some forests. My important stuff like mobile phone, passport, debit card, etc. Then there are always stored in plastic bags. Does not look nice, but uses. Thus, they are now nice and safe, I would be grateful for a win very much. Also from me, everything afterwards all the best for his birthday. I am 16.4. Birthday and maybe will work out with a win :-).
