Snow campout nets families year of free chicken

October 29, 2009 (FORT COLLINS, Colo.) Some Colorado families camped out overnight for the deal, which might not sound so bad, except that Colorado was in the middle of a blizzard.

A chain was opening its newest restaurant in Fort Collins Thursday, and the first 100 people through the door get free meals for the next year.

The line began forming Wednesday morning. The winners stayed in tents all night despite freezing temperatures and swirling snow.
