The Weekend and Beyond

Posted on Jul 18, 2015

This weekend Virgin Radio (94.5) is giving away Squamish Valley Music Festival passes. Listen both days at 12:10, 2:10, 4:10, 6:10, and 8:10. I like how they spread out the times to make sure everyone gets a chance to win. 

The Peak has Cultus Lake packages – both Waterpark and Adventure Park passes for 4. Listen each hour between 10am and 4pm for the code word to text to 88000. 

If you would like to go to SVMF but are not thrilled about the camping or driving, you could try your luck at winning the sweetest SVMF package from CFOX! Every weekday between July 20th and 31st they will give away a SVMF package that includes 3 nights at the Executive Suites Hotel and Resort. I won this last year and I have to tell you – it was AMAZING!!! Not just being at the festival – that was cool and all – but the luxury of the hotel and the added touches by the CFOX team were a dream! 

The hotel room was nice, and the hotel has a pool with a slide plus a hot tub, and a breakfast too. You still have to walk about 10-15 minutes to get to the grounds (and when it gets near dusk the mosquitos came out in force so pack your bug spray!) but it’s a whole lot closer than any other hotel. There was a bear hanging around there last year too, so don’t be dilly dallying on your way or take a “short cut”. When we checked in we were given a gift bag from the CFOX peeps that included everything you could need for this spectacular weekend – sun glasses, sun screen, tylenol, lip balm, water bottle, chips, and even condoms!!! I was so impressed with their thoughtfulness. If you win, please send me a picture of your swag bag!

Oh yes, so to win: listen for the code word at 4pm each weekday and the 99th texter to 843369 wins it! WOOT! I’m not going to be trying for this, but I wish you luck, luck, LUCK! I enjoyed the SVMF last year but to be honest, the best part for me was staying in the hotel and playing in the pool with my kids. I can do that at any hotel – I want real festival fans to enjoy this wicked experience!

The Peak has the videos for the 3 finalists for My Big Fat Gay Wedding up on the site. If you have time this weekend, go check them out. One of them is 1 minute and 10 seconds long, even though the rules state specifically that it has to be 1 minute or less. But what ever – it’s a WEDDING!!! EEEEEEEEE!!! Very exciting! I look forward to the location announcement – I’m going to try to get there so I can watch (the location will be public, like Stanley Park or something, so we are definitely allowed to show up!) Vance Joy is opening for TSwift that night, but first he’ll be playing at the wedding! Whaaaaaaat?! So cool…

Z95.3 continues with TSwift Tag all next week. My daughter is determined to win her way into that show, and I’m not going to stop her! If she’s brave enough to call the station and talk to the DJ, I’m not standing in her way! I’m so proud of her… LOL!

Virgin will also have TSwift tickets next week too. I’ll put it all in my Sunday night schedule so you’ll be ready for Monday. 

Have a fabulous weekend!!!
