pete's tale of woe...

[Pete in a state of woe etc.]

Poor ol' Pete sent me the following e-mail yesterday:

Hi Hugh.

Here begins a tale of woe.

Having purchased (and thoroughly enjoyed) a bottle of your fine pinotage last night [i.e. the night before the new Stormhoek promo was posted] for the first time, myself and my two colleagues (one of them happens to be my wife) decided to take you up on your challenge today and ran (literally) to the local Tesco to take our photos there. Just outside the building, my foot found its way into the hole where a brick once lived and I seriously sprained my ankle.

Not only this, but the Tesco we ran to didn't have any Stormhoek! After helping me limp back to the office, my lovely wife's off to find an ankle support and some frozen peas.

Anyway, I've attached some photos of me looking sad in Tesco (ok i'm not looking sad, but it really hurts), and a photo of my foot and some wine. Surely this has to be worth a case? :)

(Keep in mind that, if I wasn't one of the first 6, it's because I had to limp back). Oh well... you can't blame me for trying.)

Thanks, and keep up the good work.

Pete

Heh. Check out Pete's neat website, "Your Name On Toast".

[Note To Self:] I vote Pete gets a case of Stormhoek, anyway...

Only one case!! I'm sure such sacrifice deserves at least a couple or cases :) if Pete ever travels to the mother city of Cape Town I promise to give him a personal tour of the vinyard and plenty of wine for himself and his better half !

Cheers,

Chris

Hey Pete, no worries. I had a tale of woe too! The promo became my Stormhoek Odyssey and took a journey almost 98 miles and a few Tesco stores starting at Abingdon, then Wantage, Henley, Newbury and finally Reading to complete.

I did it.

Hey Pete!

I had a tale of woe too! The promo became my Stormhoek Odyssey because the stores kept running out as I arrived and it took a journey of 98 miles and a few Tesco stores starting at Abingdon, then Wantage, Henley, Newbury and finally Reading to complete.

I did it. 'Spose I am a headstrong Namibian but hey - I did it! Lekker wyn!
