Tuesday May 26th

Posted on May 26, 2015

Hey there! I’m typing to you from my 13th floor Mandalay Bay hotel room desk. Our view is of the west side of Vegas, not the Strip side – which I’m grateful for, as it’s much more peaceful. It’s sunny and warm, but not sweltering hot. It’s a mild 31 degrees, and if you stay in the shade, it’s all good. The pool was an absolute zoo yesterday thanks to the American holiday, but we’re told that everyone is checking out today and it should be quiet down there for the rest of the week. So I’m just going to finish typing this and head down there for a few hours before it gets too hot. Then we’re off to Freemont Street for the afternoon, and we’re looking into getting Penn and Teller tickets for tonight. That’s a Bucket List item for me, so I’m super stoked! My girlfriend Sheelagh that I brought with me has 4 kids, and one of them is here playing in a poker tournament! What are the odds?! LOL! He just drove in from Red Deer yesterday, so we met him at the Venetian and he bought us dinner (a pizza which was AMAZING and CHEAP!)

Okay, let me get this down before I forget about it and just tell you all about Vegas: JRFM is giving away what looks like 4 Alaska cruises. Edgewater Casino is giving away hundreds of these cruises right now, and I think JRFM has 4 this week. CFOX also has some, and Jack will have one on Friday at 7:40am.

For the JRFM cruises, lilsten for the sound of the ship’s horn, then call in to qualify. I don’t know how many times per day it is happening, but presumably multiple times. Then on Thursday, they will call the name of a qualifier at 7, 11, 5, and 7. The person has 9 minutes and 37 seconds to call back. If they don’t, they will call another qualifier’s name. The odds on this one sound pretty darned good! Go qualify! All you have to do is listen to JR all day (which many of you do anyway) and be near the phone.  If I were at home I would definitely be playing for this one!

Z95.3 has a fun contest on their site right now – name the 5 differences in the picture and you could win a Hastings Racecourse funday. It looks like it would be a hoot! You and 4 friends get $25 food vouchers (each), plus you get to be in the booth as they call the race, etc. Fun! Go enter HERE.

BTW, have they played the song yet?? Please let me know asap if you hear it – I can call from here too! ;D

Also, Virgin has Pemberton Fest tickets with Remo on the Afternoon Drive, and they will have 1D tickets coming up all weekend.
Choose the Cash or the Car on Rock 101 at 8, 11, 2, and 5. This is the last week.
PEAK has iPads every day, listen for the band names at 7, 11, 2, 5, and 7 and text them separately including your name to 88000.
LG is taking more qualifiers for the trip to Vegas. The travel dates are August 7th to 10th, so make sure you can go before you try to get on the standby list. Get on the standby list by being caller 4 when you hear “Do Ya Think I’m Sexy” – start dialling as soon as you hear it. There are 4 more chances to qualify – today from 3 to 4, tomorrow between 11 and 12, and twice on Thursday (8-9 and 1-2).
CTV is sending someone to Disneyland, watch each morning for the code word and enter it on their site.

BTW, WordPress has once again messed with the app so my formatting is a bit off. Let me know if the site looks funny on your end – send me a screen shot if you can – and I will try to fix it. I’ve got lots of time to play with it today and tomorrow! 😀
Keep Trying and Happy Dialling!
