Custom paint job winner!

Back in August we teamed up with BD’s Cycles to have a benefit for Sgt. John Colter in an effort to help him and his family after a horrible motorcycle accident. If you missed that, you can read those details below. Today, November 1st, was the deadline for entries and we picked our winner. I’m glad to say that the winner of a $2,000 custom paint job was none other than Nicholas Owen of Pearl River, LA! Nicholas is the proud owner of a new 2014 Harley-Davidson Softail Deluxe and I’m sure his new paint job will be stunning!

For anyone who wonders how this played out, I took the spreadsheet with all entrant names and used a random number generator to shuffle the names. This ensured that anyone with multiple entries had their name spread randomly throughout the list of 290 total entries. I then used the random number generator from to generate a number between 2 and 291 (#1 was the header line on the spreadsheet). The number generated was 81, cross-reference this against the spreadsheet and we see Nicholas Owen as the winner!

I even did a little video capture to show the entire process on my desktop:

I’d like to say a big thanks to everyone who took the time to enter and help out a brother in need. I only wish we could have raised more! After Paypal fees we raised right at $2,750 to help John and his family.
