In honor of CrackBerry's 10th Anniversary and BlackBerry Mobile's "Mercury" Launch Event in Barcelona Spain at Mobile World Congress, we surprised 10 CrackBerry members with free trips to attend in person!!

If you're a regular reader of CrackBerry you know we've been bringing back the good 'ole days this month as we celebrate 10 Years of CrackBerry. Nothing screams the good 'ole days more than a new BlackBerry launch and the timing couldn't be more perfect with BlackBerry Mobile set to unveil their new Android-powered, QWERTY rocking BlackBerry "Mercury" this Saturday in Barcelona, Spain at Mobile World Congress. That same night at midnight, CrackBerry turns 10. Crazy, right?!

Our new friends at BlackBerry Mobile wanted to make sure the CrackBerry milestone would be one to remember, so they've financially supported us in pulling an Oprah Winfrey move to bring TEN hardcore CrackBerry folk to Barcelona so they could attend our CrackBerry Anniversary Meetup and be in the audience as the BlackBerry Mercury gets unveiled.

Here are the lucky members going from CrackBerry who I think were truly surprised and delighted to be contacted out of the blue: slagman5, Quizm, mainely_linux, pkcable, superfly_fr, FF22, BigBadWulf, Denise in Los Angeles, Elite1, and Shao128. We took a mix of regular members and our volunteer ambassadors and moderators.

Pretty awesome, right?! I can't wait to see everybody in person. Huge thanks go to BlackBerry Mobile for making this a reality for us. And to everybody who isn't there in person, we will be thinking about you and be celebrating in your honor. Lots of photos and videos to come! :)
