Friday May 29th

Posted on May 29, 2015

I’d like to start off by saying CONGRATS to Michelle who just got married at the Paris in Vegas! WOOT!!! We were sitting behind some of her wedding guests on the plane so we got all the juicy details. ;D

I would also like to say THANK YOU to Rock 101 for the incredible trip – everything but the hotel transfer was covered! It was wonderful not to have to worry about paying the Resort Fees (about $75) or wifi (other resorts charge up to $13/day!) The Santana concert was stellar – I had NO idea there was an underground music venue there – it was intimate and roomy at the same time. The bass player showed up later at a free music stage in the hotel, where we were watching a great band doing rock tunes from Ramones to ACDC to No Doubt. He took over for the band’s bass player and finished the set, smiling all the while. Very cool.

The end of May signifies the beginning of the summer doldrums – contest fun levels dip well below the “I’m Interested” and hover around the coma-inducing, it’s-not-worth-the-trouble-and-now-I’m-just-listening-for-fun levels. I recall only a handful of contests that got me excited last summer, so it’s seasonal-slow-down mode for the next 3 months. I will still do schedules but probably only once per week. The rest of the time I will regale you with tales of free summer fun and stupidity – you know I’m good for it! 😉

Today’s the day! It’s happening between 2 and 5 today. For SURE! You KNOW what I’m talking about… if you can’t listen, I can text you when it plays so you can start calling 604-280-0953. Just send me your number: contestsvancouver@gmail.com

Z95.3 also 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. The differences are easy to spot – one on each person – but if you can’t see them let me know and I’ll help you. Colour blind people might have trouble with it…

Virgin has Pemberton Fest tickets with Remo on the Afternoon Drive, and they will have 1D tickets coming up all weekend. 

Today is the last day for Cash or Car and also Peak iPads.

LG is drawing the winner for that trip to Vegas today! I hope you win!!

JRFM has a Cutest Kid contest going on right now, but I’ve decided that I ABHOR contests that require the collection of “LIKES”. People know how to cheat (buy likes, join groups for mutual likes, etc) so it’s a waste of time for those of us with small social media circles. The top ten with the most likes will be judged and a winner will be chosen (NOT by random draw!) If the contest requires judgement of any kind – and ESPECIALLY about how cute kids are – I’m not promoting it. So if you’re up for rejection for the sake of a kids’ bedroom set, have at ‘er! Check out their contests page for the details.

Keep Trying and Happy Dialling!
