We had a great time last night hanging out with more than 100 of our social media followers at the Deep Fried Triangle Tweetup. We hope everyone had fun creating origami Twitter birds, sharing their State Fair memories, learning how to yo-yo, sampling Deep Fried Kool-Aid and House-Autry Mills hushpuppies and posing on our red carpet during the event.
We’d like to send a special thanks to our sponsors and exhibitors who made the event such a success. Thanks to Susan Hansen from the Village of Yesteryear, Lisa Gregory with Blue Ribbon Memories, The Amazing Arthur Fratelli, Smokey Bear and Brian Haines with N.C. Forest Service, UNC-TV, Murphy House, House-Autry, Jack Link’s, N.C. Pig and the N.C. Pork Council, Brussels Crepes, McBride’s Concessions and Powers Great American Midways.
And, now to announce the winner of the SCVNGR hunt. More than a dozen teams competed, completing 964 combined challenges last night. We’d like to congratulate EloniMedia for earning the most points and being named 2011 Deep Fried Champions.
We aren’t the only ones who had a good time. Check out a sample of the tweets from last night:
