Wild Country have finished our fantastic 'Crack School' video series and with over 100,000 views in 91 countries we are pretty certain that plenty of people have learned something from those very clever Wideboyz along the way.
So Wild Country would like to thank to everyone who watched liked and commented on our videos - and we'd also like to say thanks to Tom Randall, Pete Whittaker, Hotaches and especially UKC.
And thanks also to everyone who entered one of our seven fantastic 'Crack School' competitions - along side the videos we have given away over £3000 worth of prizes in the last six weeks. Our final weekly competition, Taping - ended on Tuesday and the prize winners were:
However, there was also an 'overall' competition which has run for the full six weeks - and so none of this would be complete without our big announcement of the winner of our 'money can't prize' offered by Wild Country and UKC - which was the competition to 'Win a days climbing for you and three mates with Tom Randall'.
The winner is Peter Simpson of Penrith, Cumbria - who wins a days climbing with Tom, a Wild Country goody bag and a pair of Red Chili Habanero VCR shoes. So if you're one of Pete's mates I would start buying him beer right now...!!!
