101 days to go – New Contests!!

November 3, 2009

Well, of course I’m going to start with mine! Thanks to everyone that has posted up a comment so far!  Looks like people are keen on the 100 days to go pin and the Halloween pin (as you should be… they’re cute!).  Missed out so far?  Post a comment answering “What animals is Miga composed of?” and your name will be entered to win two pins!, to be drawn the evening of November 4th!  Check out more info here!

101 - Cold FX Clara Hughes

Quatchi and Sumi with speed skater Clara Hughes!


Cold-FX has a new contest on called ‘Stay Healthy to Win‘!  If you win you receive airfare to and from Vancouver, 3 nights hotel stay and tickets to 3 events including Men’s Hockey – Canada vs. USA, Women’s Hockey semi-final and a speed skating event, plus $1000 spending money!  Sweet!  You can sign up here to try to win!  But for this contest you must be a member of  Also, don’t forget to follow them on Twitter @COLDFX2010 or become a fan on their facebook page.  If you answer their daily trivia question correctly you may be entered to win some of their pins, which really are super-sweet!

Do you subscribe to the Vancouver Sun?  If so your name will be entered in their Subscriber Rewards contest.  From November 9th – 13th the Sun will be giving away pairs of tickets to the Games and on November 16th they’ll draw to find out who won tickets to the Opening Ceremonies!  Very nice!  Not a subscriber yet?  Well you still have a few days to sign up and enter the contest!  Good luck!

ICBC still has a contest on too!  If you’re interested in getting a plate you have until December 9th you may get another chance! You can get an Olympic plate until December 6th and you can enter to win a weekly prize of Olympic tickets!  Nice!

Sadly, I am falling asleep with my laptop on my lap, so I think I’ll go to bed now.  I’ll scour around for more contests to post up tomorrow.  If you know of one that I haven’t got up… let me know!  Either comment or email it to me at!  Night night!

    I love your enthusiasm for the Games, and your obvious pride and involvement in the activities taking place in the lead up to February 2010 and beyond with the Paralympics. Try to read your blog daily, soaking up your energy and excitement. Keep it up, and continue to inspire the world. It’s fantastic.

      Thanks Kerstin! It’s very nice to hear from you and I’m glad my excitement is spanning oceans! That’s pretty cool! I hope things are warm and wonderful where you are. It’s getting cold and rainy here in Vancouver, which is good! Hopefully it will mean lots and lots of snow for our Mountain Venues!

      Miss you! Andrea

    Miga is composed of both the Killer Whale and Bear! That is quite the combination and has made for a cute little mascot! Nice creation Vancouver!! 🙂
