‘Booty’ remains hidden

AHOSKIE — “Brian’s Booty” remains hidden…at least for now.

Week number two of the “Find Brian’s Booty” contest produced 22 responses, but none came close to guessing the location of the cash. Ditto for the 17 entries received during week one of this contest sponsored by Roanoke-Chowan Publishing. Inside today’s edition is the third clue. Perhaps that will narrow the search for the mystery location of “Brian’s Booty” – named for Brian Pavlick who serves as Advertising Director of Roanoke-Chowan Publishing.

Here is an added clue….the treasure is hidden at a place in the Roanoke-Chowan area.

The contest, with $500 at stake, is being held in conjunction with our annual “Crossroads” special section. This weekly publication (inserted in each Saturday edition throughout the month of February) is packed full of articles and photos featuring the people of the local area. “Treasures” is the theme of the 2010 Crossroads. We will have articles on what we consider as local “treasures” of our four-county area.

The contest will run throughout the publication dates of Crossroads – 2010 (Saturday, Feb. 6, 13, 20 and 27). Clues regarding the location of the treasure will be published in each weekly edition of Crossroads. Those wishing to participate can follow the weekly clues in an effort to guess where Brian has hidden $500 in cash. Enter your guess on where “Brian’s Booty” is hidden by completing the entry blank shown with the ad. No photocopies of the entry blank will be accepted. Mail entry blanks to “Find Brian’s Booty”, c/o Roanoke-Chowan News-Herald, PO Box 1325, Ahoskie, NC 27910 or they can be delivered in person to the R-C News-Herald’s office located at the intersection of Main Street and Catherine Creek Road in downtown Ahoskie during regular business hours (8 a.m. – 5 p.m., M-F). All entries must be received (or postmarked) by 5 p.m. on Friday, March 5. There may be more than one entry with the correct answer. If that’s the case, then one winner will be selected in a random drawing of all correct entries. That winner will receive $500. If there are no correct answers, then we get to keep Brian’s loot. There is no limit on the number of entries submitted by one person. However, all entrants must be at least 18 years of age. Employees of Roanoke-Chowan Publications, LLC and their families are not eligible to enter. No purchase is required. Game pieces are available at the R-C News-Herald office in Ahoskie.

Be sure to pick-up a copy of each Saturday’s edition throughout February and look for the “Find Brian’s Booty” ad inside the Crossroads section. Good luck with your treasure hunt.
