  chessgames.com: K ATTENTION K

Due to the generosity of a few Chessgames members, a number of premium accounts have been donated to the 2010 "Dear Santa" drawing. (See the top of the Santa Claus page for the current number.)

Entering into the giveaway is simple: post a message to this page that begins with the words "Dear Santa" and you will be entered into a drawing which will occur sometime on Christmas Day.

RULES

<1> To be entered in the drawing, you must post a message to this page starting with the words "Dear Santa" to this thread.

<2> It doesn't matter what you write after "Dear Santa" (you will not be judged on the merits of your letter) but if you feel like being creative, go ahead.

<3> You must not have a premium account at this time. (Premium members may post a "Dear Santa" letter for amusement, but they will not be entered into the drawing.)

<4> The timestamp on your message must be after this post and before Christmas; i.e. between now and 11:59:59 December 24, 2010, Chessgames server time (USA/Eastern).

<5> Please do not register for the drawing multiple times.

<6> Sometime early in the morning on Christmas Day, Saint Nick will come down our chimney with a sack full of Chessgames Premium Memberships. We will then announce the winners on this page. Winners will also be notified by email.

Good luck, and Merry Christmas!

P.S. If you wish to become a benefactor by donating to the Santa Claus Fund, email chess@chessgames.com with the words "Dear Santa Contest" in the subject heading, and indicate how many memberships you intend to donate. A Chessgames representative will respond and explain the procedure.

I hope its going to be a white Christmas in the chess town here.

Dec-21-10  crazybird: Dear Santa

Have you ever played chess?

Dec-21-10  theagenbiteofinwit: Dear Santa,

You're a broke punk that can only afford 8 subscriptions this year. I didn't get one last year and I'm sure I won't this year. I hope your sleigh crashes in the Sudan,

love,

me!

Dec-21-10  Pravitel: Dear Santa

As a early Christmas present my girlfriend dumped me for another man, please bring some consolation.

Dec-21-10  edbermac: Dear Santa, I'd be very pleased to get a premium account to CG. It gets pretty boring here on the Island Of Misfit Toys.
Dec-21-10  Volmac: Dear Santa

I think you would make an excellent FIDE President.

Dec-21-10  BobCrisp: <<3> You must not have a premium account at this time. (Premium members may post a "Dear Santa" letter for amusement, but they will not be entered into the drawing.)>

What kind of stupid rule is this? Were the holiday quiz prizes of 4 months premium membership likewise restricted?

Dec-21-10  chesssantosh: Dear Santa
i really wanna improve my chess
would you please help me?
Dec-22-10  nintenchess: Dear Santa
I know you don't read this part anyway.
Dec-22-10  Elsinore: Dear Santa,

All I wanted for Christmas was to see <Chessgames.com> NOT use the word "holiday" instead of Christmas, and you delivered. Technically, they used x-mas, but that's close enough and a lot better than the commie <holiday contest>. Till next year fatso.
