No fooling this time, sorry about the delays.

We’re ready to announce that we’ve got four lawn seat tickets to give away for KISS on Wednesday, July 13, at Mountain Laurel PAC in Bushkill. Probably the biggest PopRox ticket contest ever, I’m pretty jazzed about it. Huge, huge thanks to our friends at Mountain Laurel PAC for providing the tickets.

But I’m not just giving them away. These are four tickets to the biggest event of the summer in the Poconos, so our web guru set up an actual entry page that’s going to require a little bit of work, because I want to find the biggest KISS fan in the Poconos. (If for whatever reason you can’t get the link to work, go to

Here are the basics:

1. Go to the entry page and enter with a 100-word-maximum essay on why you’re the biggest fan of KISS in the Poconos. The deadline is June 22, that gives you eight days to enter. I’m serious on the 100-word limit. Anything more and my ADD will kick in and I’ll just dump it.

2. I’m going to pick the best four entries with a little help from some KISS fans in the newsroom, then I’ll publish those finalists in the Sunday PopRox column on June 26. I’ll be judging the entries on originality, passion and knowledge. Good grammar and spelling couldn’t hurt either. Just sayin’.

3. Then we’re going to open it up to fan voting to see who gets the tickets. I know the ballot box gets stuffed on these things, and that’s fine. If you’re one of the finalists, you can go on your Facebook page and beg people to vote, you can just take your iPhone on the streets of Stroudsburg asking people to vote for you, whatever. Fan voting determines the winning essay.

4. After that, we’ll announce the winner in a PopRox live chat at noon on Friday, July 1. Oh, and there’s going to be a PopRox live chat on July 1. The chat is dependent on when my daughter #2 is born. Current due date is July 9, but who knows. If I have to cancel the live chat, I’ll just send an email to the winner.

Remember the deadline is June 22. If anyone has any trouble with the entry form, shoot me an email and I’ll try to troubleshoot it for you.

Good luck everyone!

Back with links tomorrow.
