Long on Miles II
It's time to count up those frequent flier miles and determine who traveled the most round trip miles to see Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers play in 2009.
It's our Long On Miles II contest. The winner will receive a pair of tickets to the January Jam at JJ's Cantina in Puerto Peñasco, Mexico on Jan. 30.
Here's what you have to do: add up the miles you traveled to see RCPM and post your total, along with the breakdown of cities, on the message board at www.azpeacemakers.com under the designated area in the "Tour Time" section, or FB.
Contest entries will be taken until Dec. 8.
Here are a few points to remember:
For consistency, we're calling the distance from the Arizona border to Rocky Point 60 miles. So a trip from the border to Puerto Peñasco would be 120 miles round trip.
To figure out the miles between cities, we suggest websites such as Mapquest.
If you follow the band for several cities, only count the miles from your last city. For example: If you live Spokane and travel to see the band play in both Seattle and Portland, you would count the miles from Spokane to Seattle, Seattle to Portland, and Portland back to Spokane.
If you decide to take a detour between cities, you still can only count the most direct miles between cities. Example: if you live in Los Angeles and travel to Phoenix to see a show, but on the way home decide to make a stop in Las Vegas, you cannot count the Vegas miles.
If you have any questions, post them on the message board or send a PM to MDLP or Tippy.
Good luck, and a huge ¡Muchas Gracias! to all our fans who made the long road trips, stood through long lines at the airports, and called in "sick" the next day at work to see RCPM in concert in 2009. We couldn't do this without you.
Here's to Life!
