    The contest:
    This is a really really simple contest!

    There will be several prizes given out!
    So come on down! Try your luck! Get prizes for your gifts!

    Is this real? If it is, I don't think it belongs in the EoF.

    Putting it in the EoF makes it seem like a joke, really. Plus less people will see it because of it's placement in the EoF. That said, if you truly feel that it belongs here, then by all means.
