  • BAM Book Bundles
  • Kindle Fire 7″ tablets
  • $25 toward the next writers’ conference

[UPDATED (07/15/19): I’m still fitting the pieces together, so I’ll be tweaking this, if needed, up until the BAM19 Meetup. I just added some titles we’ll have in the BAM Book Bundle giveaway]

Who Is Eligible?

Only one giveaway per winner.

Cru Staff who attend at least one BAM-sponsored event are eligible:

  1. BAM Book Signing
  2. BAM Meetup
  3. BAM Crams

The Book Signing is on Monday, July 22nd in the big tent coffeeshop / bookstore at 4:00.

The BAM Meetup and BAM Crams are on Wednesday, July 24, 2019, from 3:30 PM to 5:00 PM. We’ll be meeting in Edwards Hall.

To verify attendance, I might have access to an app to scan your QR code, but I don’t know the details of that yet. So…

  • Enter the giveaway on Wednesday afternoon for the
    • BAM Book Bundle and/or
    • Writers’ conference registration
  • Share a photo of you at one of the events on social media (see next section).

How to Be Eligible for the Giveaways

For the Kindle Fires

Share or like social media about BAM. Please also include #BAM19 or #BAMisGrowing so I can find your post. I’m posting shareable media on Facebook and Workplace. Help yourself to the BAM Jam folder (spread the word) on Google Drive. Feel free to use these, but don’t get sticky.

Another perfect way is to take a photo of yourself at one of the events and posting to Facebook, Workplace, or Twitter. Use the hashtags (#BAM19 or #BAMisGrowing) and/or tag me so I don’t miss your “entry.”

I’ll chose one winner from Monday’s event (the book-signing) and two from Wednesday’s (the BAM Crams and Meetup).

I’ll mail the Kindle Fires in August. You must have a USA address.

For BAM Book Bundles

The books are donated by Cru authors. We bundle them up on Wednesday during the meetup and award them about 4:45.

To enter the Book Bundle giveaway, fill out a raffle ticket during the BAM Meetup and turn them in at the Welcome Table. Winners must be present.

Some of the BAM Bundle giveaways are:

  • Go Do Say Give: The Freedom and Fruitfulness of Surrender to Jesus by Keith Bubalo
  • Buried Dreams: From Devastating Loss to Unimaginable Hope by Lindsey Dennis
  • Mary Morning Martha Day by Pam Lily
  • Lorehaven magazines
  • The King and I by Nancy Wilson
  • An extended play CD by Erica Frogner

For $25 toward January’s Writers’ Conference

Drop your business card in the basket at the Welcome Table. We’ll do two drawings from the business  cards for the next writers’ conference. Winners will be credited $25 toward registration when we open that up. (I cut out the BAM Bingo idea for this year. We’ll have paper you can write your name on if you don’t have a business card with you.)

The conference is Tell a Better Story with speaker, Leslie Leyland Fields.

Dates are January 15 – 16, 2020, at Lake Hart in Orlando, Florida.
