    I enter just about every contest and drawing that comes my way.  I won a drawing for hockey tickets once and one time I entered a drawing at a pet store and won a mountain bike.  Whoopee...I never took it outta the box.  LOL

    The best thing I ever won was a $50.00 gift certificate to a book store.  The bookstore my best friend worked at.  Hmmmmm.....

    Have you ever won anything good, bad, or indifferent?
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    Sounds like you are a winner! Congratulations! Send the Hockey tickets to Coastie! Send me the Mountain Bike, so I can compete with the Mormon Missionaries in my neighborhood, and you curl up with a good book!

    Hrm...

    No huge prizes or anything like that.

    I won 2 points on my final exam in my Religions in America class last semester. The group I was in got the award for "best project" and each of us as group members got 2 points. That was pretty amazing.

    Well . . . I'm thinking . . .

    Oh, yeah, I won an amateur radio amplifier (I think). My son was the one who drew the ticket for the prize. LOL . . . we got ribbed for that! And, I've won a couple of door prizes and drawings at parties. That's about it.

    When I was a little girl I won a GIANT stuffed bunny rabbit for Easter...or did my daddy win it?
    In 7th grade I won a national art contest and my art was displayed in washington d.c. and then toured the united states...I was pretty impressed with myself.

    It's been awhile, but I use to win stuff all the time.

    When I lived in Calif I use to win, every year, from the local Christian radio station, tickets to Christian Night at Knotts Berry Farm.&nbsp; I also won them once for Christian night at Disneyland.&nbsp; All ya had to do was be a certain caller and I always seemed to get in. :)&nbsp;&nbsp;

    A couple of times I won for co-workers, who were trying at the same time I was, I would hear the line ring, and since I'd already won, tell them to pick the call up&nbsp;and they would win.&nbsp; One time I gave the co-workers name and he heard his name announced on the radio as he was driving in to work. &nbsp;

    I've also won record albums (giant CD's :D) and&nbsp;music cassette tapes.

    I've won concert tickets (Carman, David Meese,&nbsp; Larnelle Harris, and Inglebert Humperdink), tickets to an antique fair once, and a watch, cologne, and dog food.

    When I try I usually win&nbsp;something, I just have not tried in a long time.&nbsp; I'm usually not listening to the radio and near a phone at the same time.&nbsp;

    Once..just ONCE would I like to open a plastic cola bottle and find a winner message under the bottle cap.&nbsp; If I go to the store to buy a bottle of vanilla coke or something, I willalways pick the bottle with a game under the cap. And I ALWAYS find "sorry ya big loser, not this time."&nbsp; or something like that.

    I am popping over to Doritos.com to try to win a trip to London.&nbsp; Keep your fingers crossed!

    (And Coastie can have my hockey tickets when he pries them outta my cold, dead fingers.&nbsp; :))

    A TV network's website was giving away two tickets to a 3D Movie. I entered and I got a letter a few weeks later informing me that I had won the two tickets. The movie was done in 3D and the Visual part of it "came-out" of the screen; pretty cool effect.

    I won a contest where you had to guess the number of helium ballons in this huge fishnet thing. I was the closest to the actual number. So I won a rubber bouncy playground ball. Wheeee!

    In two separate drawings I won matching Monet prints.
