Membership Drive Contest

Toronto Vintners is hosting a Membership Drive Contest for 2014!  Here are the contest rules (for members only!):
  • Refer a friend to TVC, get them to buy a NEW membership and make sure they provide your name on the application form when they register. The member who gets the most new people to join will win a lovely bottle of wine from our cellar. If there is a tie, each person will get a bottle - up to a maximum of 3 bottles. If we have more than a 3-way tie, we will do a name draw for the three bottles.
  • To be eligible, you must sign up a minimum of 2 new members (only brand new members please; former members who have previously not renewed but rejoin in 2014 do not qualify as new).  The contest ends midnight February 15, 2014.  We will announce the winner(s) and present the bottle(s) at our February 18th Rhone wine event. (You will have to attend one of our events to claim your bottle since we won’t ship it.)
