You may be familiar with Launceston’s City Park, the much-loved venue for Festivale. However, some readers may not be across the details of Royal Park, the venue in question for this New Years Eve party. Never fear… we will feature yet another lovely space in the northern Tasmanian city soon, when we share photos from the lens of Benita Bell of Daydream Photography. Stay tuned for that episode, coming to a screen near you soon.

For more information, please contact: Lou Clark (Festivale Chairman) by phone 0419 326 023 or visit the New Year on Royal website.

As we’ve said before, the competition rules on Facebook have always been too hard to handle, so we’re going to keep this in-house. We’re also going to keep it REALLY simple. If you are subscribed to receive the free newsletter from Think Tasmania, you are eligible to enter. Apparently a random draw is still allowed in Tasmania without applying for a permit, so here’s what you need to do…

Step 1 – be a subscriber to the FREE newsletter from Think Tasmania*

Step 2 – leave a reply at the bottom of this article.

And that’s it! This will be a random draw, so comments won’t influence the outcome. But if you’d like to leave any feedback for the Festivale committee about New Year on Royal, that would be really great. You could discuss your personal desire to win this prize family pass, or even Think Tasmania… we’d love to hear it all, and we’ll be closely following all the comments. We won’t reply individually because that would upset the competition app (it might award us the prize!).

Family Pass Prize ~ Common Sense Please?

  • Leave a comment on this post by midnight 19 December 2014 (local time). We’ll choose a random winner using our website’s competition app.
  • The family pass for Launceston’s New Year on Royal with a retail value of $35-$40 is the one and only prize.
  • Fair and reasonable terms and conditions automatically apply. So one entry each (our app is able to detect multiple entries).
  • Please apply common sense to all aspects of this family pass competition… we’d hate to disqualify someone for being silly.
  • We won’t use your email address for anything sinister, because we firmly believe in doing the right thing. Always. Don’t you?
  • We’ll announce the winner’s name here, on Facebook and Twitter. We’ll also contact the winner by email, and advise Lou Clark (the Festivale chairman) of the competition results.

What else do we need to stipulate? Nothing? Okay… then it’s over to you. Comment away! We wish you all the very best of luck. And if you’d be kind enough to share this family pass competition with all your peeps, we’d be extremely happy. Besides showing a little friendly community spirit by spreading the joy, sharing will also no doubt lead to similar competitions in the future. And THAT can only be a good thing for everyone!

*We ask that you subscribe to Think Tasmania for these competitions for several reasons. Of course we’d prefer any prizes go to dedicated followers; and we need to make sure we can contact the winners. What makes it to the Newsfeed of Facebook is a bit random, and not everyone even uses social media. Most people can receive an email however, so that’s our sure-fire way of reaching everyone. And finally, we like to share all the great things on offer in Tasmania with as many interested readers as possible – that’s our mission!
