Next week, etc
It’s a bit early for a “next week” post, but I just wanted to give you a heads-up: I’m going to be away for at least 2 weeks, possibly 3 weeks.This won’t affect you at all probably, but I wanted to let you know just in case one of the stations is starting a “listen for your name” contest before September.
Starting the first week of September, shit is going to HIT. THE. FAN. All of the stations will be vieing for your love and attention, trying to bribe you with their great contests. I will expect a number of our favourites – Z-FX, Beat Your Bills, Beat the Bank, Red Solo Cup, Phrase That Pays, Payroll, etc. Not all of them will happen at once, but some of these will be starting for sure. Sooooo exciting!!!
But next week is no slouch! Looks like Zed has a NEW game that they’re trying out on us – say it fast and win money! Uh… hmmmm… I don’t know what that’s all about, but I will be listening via Zed’s app on Monday morning to find out! It’s something to do with saying “Zed ninety five three plays Vancouver’s Best Mix!” as fast as you can. Maybe they give you 10 seconds and you get $100 for every time you say the phrase completely? That would be fun! There must be rules about enunciation and whatnot, so spend the weekend practicing saying it quickly but clearly. Then listen at 8am Monday morning for your first shot at the game. I predict a 8, 11, 2, and 4 type of game, but maybe it’s not – maybe it’s only once per day! Can’t wait to find out!!!
CFOX is also playing a new game starting Monday – they are qualifying people at 8, 11, 2, and 5 for a trip to Iceland! Cool (in more ways than one!) Everyone that qualifies gets $50 for D’oro Gelato and Caffe (2 locations downtown). The great thing is that there are THREE prizes, so one winner each week = only 20 people per draw! Each prize is worth about $3000 and includes flights, accomodations, taxes and fees. NICE!!! I’ve heard great things about Iceland – it would be amazing to see! The contest ends August 28th so it looks like I won’t be able to play, but I hope YOU get into a draw for it. But hey, only qualify if you can travel between October 15th and the 21st – the travel dates are set in stone, and no, you can’t get a raincheck.
Next Monday is the last draw for Rock 101’s Disneyland vacation. There will be 16 people in the draw so the odds are great! I’m in the draw too, but I would probably faint if they called me. I won’t hold my breath. Since that is the last one, that means that a new game is afoot! Since Willy and Kimmie have eloped (haha), anything new may not start until they get back. Let me know if you hear anything…
I will do a post for next week before we leave on Sunday, and I will have wifi while we are away so can do a daily post from afar. But you’ll have to be my ears – I won’t hear if they do any unscheduled contests, so message me if you hear something (like usually Zed doesn’t announce what Emilie’s giving away in the evenings at 8pm, but she almost always has something fun. And Matty B usually has something at 4, so tune in if you can!)
Until then, look for tomorrow’s Lotto Max post and cross your fingers (and toes, just to be sure!)
Much love and oodles of luck,
