Win a winter vacation at Vista Verde Ranch!
Words can not express our appreciation for all the entries in our Winter Vacation giveaway. What started as a “what if” idea turned into an overwhelming response. We thought it would be easy to pick a winner, thinking we might get a handful of entries. But, we lost count when we neared 200 entries. To read through all of them, and give each well thought out entry their fair shot took much more time than anticipated.
On Sunday, I lined the staff room walls with the entries all printed up. As the staff voted, we started to see some favorites appear. There were so many folks who need and deserve a getaway like this. There were wonderful entries that made us laugh, some that made us cry, and some that just reminded us of the abundance of strength, humor and love in the human spirit.
But, when it came down to it, we had to pick a winner. After the crew here narrowed down the final 12, the executive team took over and tried to pick a winner. What we finally decided is that we couldn’t pick just one. There seemed to be 3 that kept coming to the top, and they each had their own “category”. There was the couple’s romantic getaway, there was the family snow vacation wish and there was the one that was doing this for someone else. So, after much consultation and consideration, we decided to award a 3 night stay for 2 people to three different entrants.
First up, Teresa Wolf for the couple who gets to enjoy a romantic getaway this winter.
Next up, Andrew Wullaert for a family who wants to enjoy a snow vacation together.
Lastly, Jim Dickson, who laid it out on the line for a dear friend who needs a peaceful getaway.
But, having said all that, we still felt like we wanted to do something more for the rest of you. There were those of you who never had a honeymoon, and those of you who wanted to thank someone they loved, those who were doing it for their parents, and those who are true and blue fans of the ranch. For each of you, we would like to extend a 25% discount on a 3 night stay this winter. Hopefully this can help some of you find your way here and experience your story in person.
We look forward to helping folks find respite, romance, and rejuvenation at the ranch. It’s why we do what we do! Please contact Stephanie or Melissa at the ranch to plan your stay.
