BRC - good news

Starting tomorrow ----

We will randomly generate 10 names from our BRC list.    When you check out at our register a message will pop up to our cashier that will say something like you can purchase a bottle of Side Project Merci or some other limited beer if you like.    It might also say you qualified for a free T-Shirt, hat, or other beer related item from our box of goodies.
It might say you qualified for an extra bottle of the next BRC release.  We will play with the system and have fun with it.  Thanks.


Good Luck.

We will pick 10 different names each week.

Say your name is drawn one week...when the next weeks draw is done are the prior ones erased? So basically you would have to shop the same week as drawn?

So as long as you shop during a week when you were selected, you will be notified? If you at a store that maybe didn't have the allocation you "won" will it be sent over? Thanks! Great idea!

Correct, in order to control it - only 10 people will be activated at one time. After 7 days 10 new people will be randomly drawn. Your name could be picked again, it will be random though. The plan will be to change it every Saturday morning.

Going to start it like this. Might change it to picking 30 or 40 people and leave them for a month and change it once a month? Will try and see what works best. Or maybe 20 people and change it every 2 weeks?
We will see how it works.

John,
Correct, if you shop during the week you are selected the register will prompt the cashier at any of the locations. If the bottle is not at the Ballwin location, they will call and alert me to reserve it and send it over that location for you to pick up.

Will this be at all locations or just Forsyth?

Paul, awesome! Thank you so much for all you do at TWCP! You are all the best.

Paul,
It will be available at all locations. Sometimes the product will have to be transferred. But it does not matter which location you shop. It will be reserved for you and transferred if it is not at the location you shop.

"So let me get this straight, your staff will pick the most deserving person. I know your computer program isn't that smart. You still have to enter receipts manually to the brc. Let the smouzing begin. Game on! " - anonymous comment made

Why would we go through all this trouble just to give it out to favorite customers? I am not going to set up a dishonest system. This is meant to reward anyone in the BRC.
This first time I just used a random number generator from 1-500 and did it 10 times. I had my 10 numbers before I pulled up the report. I did not know any names before the numbers were picked. My plan going forward is to do a random number between 1-100, 101-200....901-1000. That way it will spread it out over the list of the top 1000 BRC members giving people further down the list a chance to get something. Like I said I might change it weekly or every two weeks. See how the system goes.

I did hear it worked and someone scored a bottle of Merci on Saturday.
