Winners Announced – BNA Crowd Funding
- by Christopher Jones
- Published: 9 January 2012
In December the BNA Crowd Funding Promo was initiated. For the pending relaunch of Bicycles.net.au, the active cycling community was asked to financially support BNA and we raised 50% of the total cost (the rest comes from me). All contributions are used solely for the costs of the site redevelopment.
To make it more exciting, cycling business have supported this initiative by adding to a prize pool, each person or business that contributed was entered into the prize draw for a chance to win from $1800 in prizes. Today the 22 winners have been announced, see the winners names below each prize. The winners have been notified by email and need to get back with 14 days – already most have replied and as you can imagine are over the moon, particularly the winner of the fixie (Graham) who is thinking about what to wear while riding his new fixie.
We kindly thank our prize sponsors who are supporting the relaunch BNA by contributing prizes.
