Hey Diamond Dashers! We're just a week out from the AMAZING and SUPER FUN 10thAnnual Diamond Dash on the Rock Island Arsenal!! Yay!! We hope you’re as pumped as we are!
Interested in getting a leg up on your competition before the Dash even starts? We thought so! Well, you're in luck--here's how you do it!
This year there are 4 Pre-Dash Point Locations. Head to one, two, three, or all four--whatever works for you, and watch your points pile up! (You get one point per stop, so you could go into the Dash with a 4-point advantage on your competition!)
You have from Friday morning on 8/9/19, until the end of the business day on Friday, 8/16/19 to get to these locations and earn these points.
These pre-Dash points are EXTREMELY IMPORTANT! They've separated the winning teams for the last 6 years! Also, there will be prizes given on the day of the Dash from some of your pre-Dash activities, so don’t miss out! (When you post these to Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter, be sure to TAG US and/or USE #diamonddash #neckersjewelersdiamonddash SO WE SEE THEM! If you don’t, we have no way to see them.) IMPORTANT NOTE: Your Instagram Profile & post must be PUBLIC, otherwise we won't be able to see your posts (regardless of what you hashtag.)
**Be sure to check the hours of the locations you're hitting before you head out! The websites are here for your convenience:
1. NECKER'S JEWELERS (Either Davenport or DeWitt location, you only need to hit one). Scroll down to our website footer for the locations and hours.
2. KIMBERLY CAR CITY in Davenport (click here for hours and directions) or COURTESY CAR CITY in Moline (click here for hours and directions). Head into the showroom once you get here. Hit one or the other, no need to hit both.
3. AMERICAN BANK & TRUST at the Davenport location at 4301 E. 53rd St. (Click here for their phone number and hours.)
4. RHYTHM CITY CASINO RESORT at 7077 Elmore Avenue in Davenport—when you get here, HEAD TO THE FRONT DESK for further instructions. (Click here for hours and directions.) **IMPORTANT: Must be 21 to enter the Casino, bring your ID!
Earning these points is easy! Hit these locations, when you get there, let them know you're a Diamond Dasher. They will then explain your Pre-Dash challenge or task. Once you complete this, they will give you a passcode. (DON’T LEAVE WITHOUT THE PASSCODE!)
TO GET YOUR POINTS: head to www.neckersdash.com and login using the e-mail and password that you designated when you registered for the Dash--ONLY ONE OF YOU NEED TO ENTER THE PRE-DASH PASSWORDS. MAKE SURE YOU USE THE SAME LOGIN/THE SAME PERSON DOES IT EVERYTIME. The day of the Dash, use that same login (e-mail)--this way, all of the points are under the same login/profile. (If you forgot your password, there is a "Forgot Password" link built into the NeckersDash website, so hopefully that should help. If you still run into issues, e-mail us and we'll get it sorted out.)
[**PLEASE NOTE: If you cannot login to the NeckersDash site, make sure you give us 24 hours from when you registered for the Diamond Dash on getmeregistered.com to upload your user information to the NeckersDash website—it probably won’t take us this long—WE DO THIS MULTIPLE TIMES A DAY. But, this is the number one issue people have with logging in, so please be patient with us. Even if you can't login yet, you can still collect your pre-Dash points, just keep the passcodes you get to enter them once you can login.]
Once you're logged into NeckersDash, on the menu there is a "Pre-Dash Points " option. Click on this, then select the location you visited and type in the passcode they gave you. Once you hit submit, you will see a green check mark to let you know you got your points. If you see a red X, check your spelling or you're entering the wrong code. (Enter in ALL CAPS.) (Note: you only have until the end of the night on Friday, August 16th to enter these! To keep anyone from sharing the day of the Dash, it's disabled after this.)
(NOTE: There is also a "Start Dash" option on the homepage of NeckersDash, but don't try to be sneaky on us--it is grayed out and won't be active until we say "GO!" on Dash day!)
Lastly, the Diamond Dash is played with your partner/teammate. Try your hardest to hit these locations with your partner! However, we understand that sometimes things don't work out as planned or schedules don't align, so if only one of you can make it, you can still participate in the Pre-Dash points.
Thank you! Happy Pre-Dashing! See you soon!!
