Celebrating One Year

Posted by  Manny   

December 2011 marks the first year anniversary for Video Trail Reviews.Com. (To see the end-of-year site stats click )The year has been a blast for me primarily because this site has enabled me to combine and share two things I’m passionate about: mountain biking and videography. So as a way to celebrate the anniversary and to say thank you to everyone who has supported the site, I’m giving away 10 T-Shirts and 2 Hoodie Sweaters brandishing (imo) the awesome site logo.

To win all you have to do is post a comment on this page or below this post on my Facebook page. If preferred you can send me an eMail. It’s that simple. On January 1st, 2012 I will collect all the names and have my nine year old son pull the 12 winning names. The winners will be the first to own the yet to be released site apparel.(Update: Store Now Open) Your choice of colors will be White or Sports Gray/Ash.

Once again I thank you for supporting the site and stay tuned because 2012 promises to be even better. Have a happy and safe holiday! – Manny

I want to thank everyone who posted comments both here and on Facebook. There were almost 50 entries. Congratulations to the following winners. Please send me an email at MannyL358 at gmail.com with the following information:

– Name
