    Who has won something in either the lottery or a contest? If you did win something, was it something you wanted, needed or actually used? Did it collect dust or get sold for something more worthwhile?

    I have never won anything, aside from a $10 scratch-off or so. Not even a 20 ounce Coke from the top of the cap. :sad2:

    Yes Jen I won several little things through my life time and some good and some as you say collects dust.
    The best thing I have ever won, Besides my wife's hand in marrage:big_smile: ) Was a fishing trip given away right here on BOC. With Richard Simms. I really enjoyed that day for sure.

    Yep, I won a transducer protector here on the BOC. I also got talked into going to bingo with my wife a couple of times and won there too. I won a country ham at a raffle once, but two other guys claimed we were splitting, so I had to have it sliced up and gave them their part. I played the pick 3 on the Tennessee lottery the first day and won that. I'm not much of a gambler and I usually quit while I'm ahead. Never played the lottery again.

    I've gone to bingo a few times...it's fun once the regulars stop complaining that you are in their seat, or Trudy sits there, and if you can handle the smoke. All I've ever done is lost money there, but it is fun.

    I won a set of tires when I was a kid. Then there were a few nickel/dime lottery tickets. Then the bestest of all was/is my lady's hand. I guess that doesn't really qualify because there wasn't any contest...:lol:

    I don't win much of anything most of the time but I did win the Magicbait contest on the BOC not long ago and was very glad to have won that prize. I use it as much as possible until it is all gone and I guess I'll go get more.
    That was a GREAT prize other than that I don't win many things.

    I didn't win anything, until I joined the B.O.C. :big_smile:

    But that was on the old site (last year), I was on a roll for a minute - three prizes in three months :big_smile: .

    But I haven't won anything in a while :sad2: , but I'm going to keep on trying.:big_smile:

    Take it easy,

    The one that sticks out the most was at a church picnic. I was around 9-10 years old and they had a gambling table. You pick a number and each number has 1-8 which would multiply your bet if you won. Spin the wheel and it stops on a number. I got 5bucks from mom and turned it into $65. I was so happy I ran back and mom took my money.:sad2:

    I've had pretty good luck winning door prizes at different events.
    The one that sticks out most in my mind was about 10 years ago. We were at a Christmas party put on by a friends employer. Well when the drawing time came my name was drawn & I had won a box of candy that was designed to look like a book. Well, needless to say, I was pretty disappointed until I opened it and in addition to the candy I found a $50 bill!:big_smile:

    I have never won anything that equates to a monetery value, but I have won somethings worth alot more and that would be all the friends I have, especially all the ones on the BOC.

    The only thing I ever won was here on BOC. I won a Keel Shield! I keep my boat in my dock and it wasn't handy to install it so I returned it and BOC gave it away again.

    I've won something 4 times, but the best one was an A-500 shotgun. One of my close friends asked me to buy a chance, I told him no, then finally I asked how many he had and he said he had 3 left, so I took the one in the middle and told him it was going to win. The next day he showed up with it and told me I sucked cause it won. I checked it out and told him he could have it, he was tickled to death, he was a gun collector. He was hunting for a certain shotgun for me when he lost control of his motorcycle and left us here. His brother gave me $450 check for it, because he said it was his brothers favorite gun due to I gave it to him. He said he couldn't find the one I wanted and would not leave with out me taking the check. I tried and tried to get him to not pay me but it is the only way he would have it.

    I have never won anything good. One of these days I'm hoping to win a BOC give away. If that happens then I'll be sure to love my prize. Yuo can never have enough fishing gear.
