It was a long 13 weeks, and many of you were successfully able to decode the riddle. But only one person can win, and that person is Evan Carroll from Clarence, Missouri. He was the first to the actual website and to follow the directions to win. Once we verified he was in no way affiliated with any of the brands involved, and had no advantage, we are excited to congratulate the latest System 2.0 owner.
Evan Carroll, Riddle solver and Sesitec owner
Alliance: Where will you be setting up your new Sesitec System 2.0?
Evan: I’ll be setting it up at my grandparent’s private lake that my grandfather built in NE Missourri. It’s a 700 ft span, so the pretty much the maximum the System will allow.
How did you figure out the riddle?
Me and my dad just sat down every time the email came in and talked about it. I had trouble with the second word, powered, at first because the clue was pretty vague, but by the third clue for each word I was like, I got it, let’s move on. When you gave the clue for the acronym, that’s when I was like there’s gonna be tons of people that get it. It’s just too easy. The last word, excitement, was tough though because there are so many e words that fit – euphoria, exaltation…
How did you find the site so quickly after we put it up?
I had it figured it out Monday, and I was just checking it every hour. I knew I was right.
Tell us a little bit more about yourself.
I’m 19 and I’ve been wakeboarding for about 3 years. I’m actually on vacation right now so i was able to check it with the website regularly. I’m hoping to get a lot better this summer and now with the Sesitiec System 2.0 I’ll really be able to get out on the lake whenever I feel like it and practice. Thank you for this amazing opportunity.
Congratulations again Evan, we’re so happy to have been able to put on this contest and give you the prize. Now for the rest of you…
The rules were quite clear, yet you had to pay attention -
Start the code out with a www. and end it with a .com and this riddle or the middle will make up a website. The first person to go this site is the big Sesitec powered static line influenced System 2.0 winner. Once I am at the website how will I know if I am the first winner? You will have instructions of what to do next once you get to the website.
To all of those that have sent us nice mails, that enjoyed the contest, thank you in return. Offering the community a prize of this magnitude is a pretty cool thing for Sesitec, Ronix and Alliance to do.
As we mentioned in the first clue, we never said this would be easy. Unfortunately there were many people that thought they could find the site by going around the riddle, from as early as the first week we had numerous people looking up all of the URLs that the principal brands and participants had registered, we had people calling and emailing our web developers and looking up their registered URLs, we even had people calling our hosting companies, representing themselves as one of our employees and hoping to lure them into divulging some info. So our only option was to make sure that the site was entirely hidden until people had figured it out, hence not even registering the URL until Wed Aug 4th. The field was level and the winner was the one who was waiting with the right answer at the right time.
Thank you for playing!
