Winner of LT entry for “Win a Seat with Randy”

Remember the winner of the Loyalty Traveler entry for the “Win a Seat with Randy” contest to fly free with the StarMegaDO 4 event November 14-15 from San Francisco to Houston to Chicago is only an entry into the final pool of 30 or so entries from participating BoardingArea.com blogs to win one of the two seats of the giveaway.

Number 9, Number 9, #99.

(John Lennon’s birthday is tomorrow and Patti Smith is doing an acoustic concert in Monterey in celebration of John Lennon’s birthday. I have white album 9 on my mind. Also #99 was the pick using random.org).


The folks at Radisson will be happy to hear that news.

LRZ is the winner of the Loyalty Traveler portion of the “Win a Seat with Randy Petersen” and is still on the island of finalists for the two StarMegaDO4 seats from the 30 or so BoardingArea blog entry winners.

If LRZ wins one of the two seats in the final selection on Wednesday October 10 by Randy Petersen, then LRZ might be stranded in Chicago with an opportunity to stay at the bird-friendly designed Radisson Blu Aqua Chicago with that $250 MegaDo cash for the two eventual winners.

LRZ picked a hotel that I visited on a press tour last year. The winner of this “Win a Seat with Randy Petersen” was selected using random.org so the actual hotel choice did not influence the winning outcome.

I also think the Radisson Blu Aqua is one of my favorite hotels. Here are some stories I wrote last year about this Chicago hotel.
