Jack Pearadin and Doug Nelsen found a 1.73-carat diamond after nearly a year of searching the park's field.
UPDATE: Congratulations to Rock Candy readers Olivia Lieblong, Rod Miller and Sarah Woolf, who each won a pair of tickets to the Rufus Wainwright concert, Thursday at UCA. There are still tickets available to the show and you can still use the discount code below to get tickets for $20.
Your ol' pals here at the Arkansas Times love few things more than giving away tickets to concerts, dance recitals, plays, films, performance art exhibitions, you-name-it.
So what's in store today? How about this: We've got three pairs of passes to see singer/songwriter Rufus Wainwright, Oct. 18 at Reynolds Performance Hall on the campus of the University of Central Arkansas.
Sound like something you'd be into? Cool. Just use whatever emailing device you've got handy and shoot one on over to firstname.lastname@example.org with RUFUS in the subject line. You ought to do that by, let's call it noon on Oct. 17. We'll put the names into our special hat that we keep around just for drawing names out of and announce the winners that afternoon on Rock Candy.
Now, for the readers who didn't win tickets to the show, you can still get a deal using this super-secret discount code. When you buy your tickets online, just enter the promo code "Rufus" at the checkout. You'll get tickets for $20 (they're normally $30-$40).
Thank you so much, Leslie, and the Arkansas Times for your support of the arts…
