Their join date is a smidge suspicious, too.  Go figure!

How is it suspicious? People found the post either on the KK main page or via social media and signed up for a chance to win one of the pairs of tickets to the HHOF.  No where did it say that you had to have been a member of KK by a certain date.  This is open to anyone that read the post that is willing to comment. 

I am literally writing down user names and emails as the comments come in at tomorrow at the 7 p.m. deadline I will draw names out of a hat for the three pairs of HHOF tickets.

Super. It’s always nice to see new folks become members. And I’m sure all of the active KK members look forward to their participation in the future.

On the other hand, if this “contest” is being run through KK and the winner turns out to be someone who’s never been here before and has no intention of ever coming back, well, then that’s a bit different.

Yes, some new members are now registered and are eligible to win.  How do I know they are new members, because I manually approve each new member.

Now their chances are as good to win as any other KK member who leaves a comment in this post excluding Monica and me.

Taking my first trip to TO on November 2-3, so tickets to the HHOF would be great.

And to those who seem concerned about it, I am a new member to KK. However, I have been a reader for years. So this contest inspired me to join and participate, which I’m guessing is part of the reason to have a contest, in addition to rewarding the faithful followers. Well done KK.

This is a great prize and sounds like it will be very fun.  I’ve never been to the HHOF.

I’ve never been to this page before but found through Twitter. I would love to go to HHOF for this event. I worked in 161 Bay St. before and would always hang around when they were setting up for the ceremonies. Looked amazing.

I think a lot of the commenters here are under the impression that the travel packages are the prizes, and not a pair of tickets for admission to the museum.

A pair of tickets is a still a sweet prize for such a slight entry requirement.

Agree with red x black. It does kinda read like all of that is the prize

The contest does NOT say you are getting an entire trip to Toronto.  The contest is ONLY for two passes to the Hockey Hall of Fame.

Thanks KK, Paul and Monica!

I look forward to returning to HHoF wearing one of my black Red Wings sweaters and getting a photo with the cup. I already have one with Yzerman’s alt sweater. Maybe Shanny’s #14 needs to make an appearance.
