I hear people talking about having bad luck or never winning anything so I thought I would do a little test.

Have you found any good Competitions or Quizzes?

Whats the best you've ever won?

The Man From F.R.I.D.A.Y. once won a test day driving fast cars at Silverstone. Unfortunately he was 11 at the time so they gave him £100 instead. This was for getting the highest score on some helicopter arcade game at a Car Dealership openday!

What have you won?

About 16 yrs ago, I won a flight in a hot air balloon. It was a phone in on the local radio, and my name was chosen.
Flew from Hereford race course and landed in the field next to the Three Counties Show ground Malvern. Same field where they did the Big Split!! Obviously not the same time as when VF was on.

Fantastic time...the balloon was red and advertised Maltesers!!

Does that count as a "win"?

I won a guess the weight of a cake here at work. 2,000 people had a go, I guessed it spot on and won 2.78 kilos of cake. Man I love the cake.
:lol:

I've won countless medals in athletics but that requires effort :p

I don't think I've won anything apart from the odd raffle prize :confused:

I won a load of Mole Grips and stuff in about 1983, in the competition they ran every month in Practical Classics mag - you had to name the cars from the tail lights. They weren't much use to me really, being ten at the time :D

I also won a load of white label 12" records in about 1988 by entering a competition on Stu Allan's Key103 (or was it Picadilly back then?) Radio show, loads of old-skool rave stuff - K-Class "Wildlife" EP and stuff, they're all in the loft somewhere :D

That's all I can think of :lol:

The live and kicking reference reminds me that I also own a big hamster cage thing on a Saturday morning kids show on ITV. A long time ago, but it was a nice present. Took ages to arrive though - I used to loiter around waiting for the parcel van to come round :)
