Last week of July is HOPPING!!!

Posted on Jul 27, 2014

After a slow summer, I’m surprised at how much is going on right now! Get in on THIS action:

This week you can win reserved seating for the Dallas Smith concert at the PNE. This includes two gate passes to the fair, plus the front row seats at the concert that evening. Listen for the Insider Track on JRFM each day. I will post it in the schedule when I know what it is (when they update their site).

Since Jack’s Staycation was Whistler last week and the trip has to be Aug 1-3, they might be doing the draw Monday morning. If they do, they will have a new Staycation starting – I hope it’s to Victoria or Tigh Na Mara or someplace relaxing (Mommy needs some pampering!!!)

Use your Jackaholic points (NOT Freeloader points!) to enter the draw for another all-inclusive trip to Mexico, drawn in August. Last Friday when they announced the name at 5:10, the person didn’t call back within the allotted time (was it 10 minutes?) so they had to draw another name. Listen, if you took the time to log in and spend your points getting in the draw, please listen for your name, or at least follow me on Twitter so I can let you know. I’m sure Charlene Farrero is still kicking herself. Luckily Barry Savage was listening and won it – he sounded so nice, and spent a TON of points on the draw. Atta boy!

Huge CONGRATS to HEATHER ROBERTSON who won the all-inclusive trip to Mexico on The Peak last Friday! I am GREEN with envy!!! The Peak will be playing the same Not-So-Secret Word game this week, and the prize will be a river rafting trip. It ain’t an all-inclusive in Mexico, but it sounds pretty skookum! The winner of that day’s game gets a half-day river rafting trip, and both players get into the draw for Friday’s grand prize – a 2 day trip with Kumsheen Rafting. The first day you spend rafting, the second day is spent relaxing. You sleep in a very cool canvas tent (check their site HERE and have a look – the tents look amazing!), and hang out at the pool, spa, lounge, restaurant, etc. You will need it after that first day of rafting!

Also on The Peak this week, you have 2 chances daily to win Squamish Fest prizes – 4 tickets PLUS camping! All you have to do is listen for the Squamish Fest artist played twice between 3 and 6 each day. They start the week off with Arcade Fire – be listening! I’m not sure if you start dialing as soon as it starts or wait for it to finish, but to be safe just start dialing when you hear it. This is a GREAT prize if you were thinking about going – the accommodations was the biggest deterrent for me but if you have a place to stay then this festival will be a blast!

Sonic has passes to Playland and Science World, so tune in when you can. I’m not sure which of their contests are still valid – looks like their website updater might be on holidays, since the Pemberton Fest contest is still up there… But probably they will still have the Squamish Fest passes, so I’ll leave those in the schedule. Congrats to Kid Carson who got married this weekend! He looked very dapper in his suit.

I was a bit preoccupied last week so I may have overlooked the Beat BBQ contest – did they give away passes to that last week? For some reason I though it would only be THIS week. Ah well, you still have 5 chances to get in on it on-air, and you can enter every day on their website HERE. Be caller 25 when you hear the announcement and you plus 3 friends will be invited the The Beat’s BBQ at Splashdown Park on August 11th. Not only will you get free entry to the water park, you will get lunch, great tunes, AND a chance to win $2500! You have to register between 10 and 12 that day to get a number. Then they have a numbered rubber duck race, and if your number matches the winning duck’s, you WIN! I could sure use $2500… But it’s super hard to be caller 25 so make sure you enter online each day – they will be drawing 27 online entrants on the 4th. You have a one-in-148 chance to win that money, but you can’t win if you don’t play! But please be aware of the rules – you can’t play if you or anyone in your household has won anything from Beat in the last 30 days. And only enter online ONCE per day, or they void all your entries. Oh, and good luck! 😉

If you haven’t picked up that Z95.3 sticker and taken a selfie yet, then you just don’t like money. I can’t believe how few people have sent one in – your chances of winning are astronomical! Couldn’t you use $500??? I personally entered via Twitter AND the Z95.3 app, but if I had to choose between the $500 and the Zescape to Vegas, I’d definitely choose Vegas! A whole weekend of me and Matty B!!! Oh, and 38 other people, but whatever…

I guess I didn’t win that Trooper white sports car prize… did YOU? Ah well, I hold out hope for many more cool contests from LG104.3 – they tweak my nostalgia bone!

No idea what’s going on over there at 103.5. They must be gearing up for something bad-ass for September…

Maybe there will be some new contest announcements on Monday, but I won’t be around to hear them – I’m going on a bus to Cultus Lake Water Park with The Peak! Squeeeeeee!! My kids are so friggin’ excited! When I won, my daughter was practically bouncing off the walls! We went on this trip last year and it is the most FUN day, and it’s so, so, SO nice not to have to drive. The lunch is just a bonus. Plus they play The Peak all day, which is my husband’s favourite station (when he’s not listening to Bro Jake on Team 1040).
