Have got the okay from Gail to run a competition which I hope many will take part in and enjoy. There will be a prize of a poster, "Michael Bolton Greatest Hits 1985 - 1995" and picture of it is included after this notice. I'm donating the poster and will mail to winner so, before you enter, please consider you will have to share with me an address to which it can be sent if you win. If you do not want to share those details please, please, do not enter competition proper but consider submitting your entry under "FUN" section and marking it as such.  For "FUN" section it will still be same list of lyrics.

Format for competition:
1 Submit application to be entrant by noon GMT, 22nd October.
2 List of all entrants published.
3 Actual competition from noon GMT, 27th October until noon GMT, 29th October.
4 Announcement of results by 5th November i.e. competition proper and fun section.
5 Publication of all entries
6 Disputes, on result, accepted until 9th November (?).
7 Prize will be mailed to winner.

Rules of Competition:
Over next three weeks, until noon GMT, on Thursday, 22nd October, you can enter to take part in competition. To enter, you will be required to be a member of this website, www.michaelbolton.com, for you will have to let me know, on here, you want to take part. You will also have to "friend" me in order to submit actual competition entry, in secret, via a personal message. Once closing date is passed, i.e. 22nd October, I will publish a list of those who wish to enter so each entrant can verify their name is registered and also to ensure I cannot add a name after closing date. Names of those wishing to enter can be posted on this thread, posted to wall on my page, or, by PM to me. Here is link to my page .... http://www.michaelbolton.com/profile/sylviadoughty346?xg_source=pro...

On Tuesday, 27th October, at noon GMT, I will post 27 lines of lyrics from songs, by Michael, which he will have recorded onto CD's. You will have 48 hours in which to submit, through a PM, your entry, telling me which songs the lyrics come from. Closing date, therefore, for all entries will be, noon GMT, Thursday, 29th October. The lyrics will be numbered and you MUST number your respective song title to correspond with the lyrics you think belong to it and I must ask that you try to keep your answers in numerical order, please !!! Hopefully, I will be able to announce the winner, which will be the one who has answered highest number of lyrics to songs correctly, by Thursday, 5th November. If there is a draw, another list of lyrics will be published, for those who have come equal first. Rest assured if such a situation arises, of there being draws, it will not be dragged out by lists upon lists but please, let's agree to deal with that, if and when, it does arise.  I do propose taking note of time each correct entry is received and if it proves to be the case that there is a large number of correct entries, only those received in the quickest time will go forward to a further "lyrics/song off".  Rest assured time differences within regions and countries will be taken into account.

After having received all entries and have named winner will, before posting any prize to anyone, publish each and every entry received in order that:
(a) all those who have entered can see their entry was taken into account;
(b) each and every entrant can verify that correct winner has been arrived at.
Only when no dispute is received, as to who is winner, will prize then be mailed. Will say Monday, 9th November, as date by which any dispute will have to be received but let's not lay that down in stone and leave as, could be subject to change. Will also post a list of correct song titles to lyrics.


                                                                    -----------ooo000ooo----------

Hope you will see and understand, as far as rules for entries being sent privately and only allowing 48 hours to answer, is because I'm trying, as far as possible, to get the winner to be a person who really knows Michael's songs which, I hope everyone will agree, is the fairest outcome in such a competition. Should add, you do not have to answer all 27 but only those that you are sure of. Always keep in mind, no one might know the 27, therefore, even if you only know 17, please, please submit your entry for, your's might still be the highest number, answered correctly.

Any questions, PLEASE ask !!!


Lastly, I have a HUGE THANK YOU to extend to one, Rob Bortkiewicz, who gave me the idea for this competition when he posted a tweet suggesting, for a bit of fun and in honour of Michael's new CD, we guess song lyrics so, if you like the idea for this competition, you must extend your thanks to Rob and I certainly do ...... thanks Rob !!! :)

Size of poster is 22 inches x 29 inches.

ADDENDUM to actual competition:


Alongside actual competition am going to run a "FUN" section within it and it is for anyone who does not wish to win poster and possibly feels, as they do not know me would not want to share their address details with me. Same rules will apply as far as submitting your entry in secret except to mark it "FUN" along with same time schedule for entries and also I will draw up and publish details of entrants and entries in exactly the same way but, no prize will be given, in "FUN" competition. Same set of lyrics will also apply.  Have incorporated this section into rules above.

To let you know I have added an "addendum" to discussion and it is to say am going to run a "FUN" competition alongside actual one:

"ADDENDUM to actual competition:
Alongside actual competition am going to run a "FUN" one which anyone who does not wish to win poster and possibly feels, as they do not know me would not want to share their address details with me, can enter. Same rules will apply as far as submitting your entry in secret to me along with same time schedule for entries and also I will draw up and publish details of entrants and entries in exactly the same way but, no prize will be given, in "FUN" competition."

Have also added information to the part concerning outcome if there was a draw:  

"I do propose taking note of time each correct entry is received and if it proves to be the case that there is a large number of correct entries, only those received in the quickest time will go forward to a further "lyrics/song off".  Rest assured time differences within regions and countries will be taken into account."

Although have added this just now still have to wait and see when actual competition closes as to what will happen because so dependent on number of correct entries received.

HI SYLVIA!  CAN WE SUBMIT AN ENTRY FOR BOTH THE ACTUAL AND FUN COMPETITION?  EITHER WAY

GLORIA

Hi Gloria and thanks for your support !!! :)   I maybe haven't worded things properly Gloria for instead of saying running a fun competition alongside I really mean it is the one competition but it will have two sets of entrants, the ones who want to win a prize and those that don't.  I am going to make it the one set of lyrics for everyone to guess.  Thanks for drawing my attention to fact I haven't made it clear,,, thanks !!! :)  Think put down to my "Scottish speak" or fact my motto is "why use one word when you can use 20 !!!"   OR   I just love to blether !!! lol.

FYI have changed wording in "discussion" at top of page, to bring in and include the "FUN" section a little better and hope I have made it clearer what intentions are with this section.

Please, any questions, or points to raise, just ask and say, please !!! :)
