kona summer bucket listOur friends at Kona Brewing have announced a contest tailored to your love of summer. All you need to do is take pictures of the things you enjoy doing before kids return to school and the leaves start changing color.

Oh yeah, I almost forgot to mention the grand prize is a trip to Hawaii! So start on your Summer Bucket List now. And, if you can’t decide who to take to the big island, I’m happy to clear my schedule for a close friend.

Here is the official press release about the Kona Summer Beer Bucket List.

Kailua-Kona, Big Island of Hawaii, June 24, 2013 — Everyone’s got a summer bucket list, especially Kona beer fans, who will likely take their Kona brews to the beach, pool, hiking and paddling on their local lakes and rivers this summer. Fans of Kona Brewing Company are invited to share their summer fun photos by posting them at the Kona Brewing Summer Bucket List sweepstakes. One grand prize winner will, in turn, be treated to an endless summer of bucket list activities in the surf, sun, and sand in Kailua-Kona, on the Big Island of Hawaii.

The Kona Summer Beer Bucket List sweepstakes centers around a “bucket list” of activities where participants are encouraged to document summer activities photographically for the next ten weeks of summer. Each photo posted will result in one entry, so the more times entered, up to 10 total possible entries per person, the better the odds of winning. Participants are encouraged to post photos corresponding to the following summer dates and themes:

June 24 – Water (sports) – One with the water

July 1 – Music – Good vibrations

July 8 – Barefeet – Barefootin’ off the beaten path

July 15 – Relaxing – Stone cold chillin’

July 22 – Food – Local Grinds

July 29 –  Happy Hour – Pau Hana

August 5 – Sunset – Summer sunset

August 12 – Hiking – Enjoying the wide open

August 19 – Biking – Pedal power

August 26 – Party – Party time

The grand prize winner will not only receive travel vouchers and six nights at King Kamehameha’s Kona Beach Hotel in Kailua-Kona on the Big Island of Hawaii, but will also win a full bucket list of activities as part of the grand prize package. The winning package includes guided tours for snorkeling, hiking and cycling, tickets to the famous Island Breeze luau, a Body Glove sunset cruise, massage for two and of course, dinner and tour at Kona Brewing Company’s flagship brewery and pub. Full details, entries and sweepstakes rules are available here at the Kona Brewing Summer Bucket List page.

“I think it’s cool that our Kona Summer Bucket List helps Kona’s mainland fans document their summer fun, and one lucky winner gets to experience what we get to do everyday here in Kona,” said company president Mattson Davis. “We know our fans are active and this bucket list sweepstakes is a simple and engaging way for them to capture and share their active pursuits. If summer finds you in a boat or on a board, post that photo. If you’re sharing beers at happy hour, enjoying the summer sun setting, or simply relaxing in your rubber slippers, capture it, post it and you’re entered to win. I’m stoked to see what our fans are doing this summer!”
