What a good idea to have a forum! just thought I`d use this opportunity to say hello and introduce myself. My name is Carolann, a mum of three from Liverpool. I`m really liking the new look and design of the website. Great work! am looking forward to meeting and chatting to other compers. Have a great week everyone.
Regards and seasonal greetings

Hi Carolann, nice to meet you. I too am thrilled at having a forum. I'm a singleton, competition and forum addict and make no appologies for it. I live in Swansea and am looking forward to meeting a whole new bunch of people who use the site too.

Hi to all from a very wintery East Lothian, Have only been comping for a short time and think i had my first win this week, Had a call from the telegrraph saying i had won a signed copy of Lewis Hamiltons life story, not a big prize but enough to keep me going as was losing faith and was starting to think i would never win anything. Just holding out for the big wins now. One good thing being snowbound at home, gives me a lot more time to enter Comps.

Happy Comping

Hello folks

I'm in Dorset and returning to comping after a very long break! It was thanks to CC that we won a car back in 1987, when we had the magazine delivered monthly. We had a friend who was a car dealer WHO DIDN'T TELL US ABOUT THE COMPETITION! some friend eh? When I asked him about it he did actually invite me to have a go (!) and the bottom line was, we won an Austin Metro! (Remember them?!) (digging out an old scrap-book recently there we were with our then-young children, in a press cutting) So if you are new to comping or have never won anything, keep trying and never give up hope. Incidentally two of my then work colleagues were so inspired to go comping that they too won a car each! So do it, do it, do it - you'll get there!

Love and peace

John

Haven't much time right now but just wanted to say a quick hello to you all. Isn't this great?! A forum at last
Been comping a long time and won some nice prizes but nothing huge. Nothing at all for the last year! Hoping you will all inspire me to try harder

Hi there, I'm in Kent, and right now terribly envious of kaggsie - what I'd give to have the decorator's in!! I've owned this house for almost two years and with only one working arm find myself unable to do even seemingly simple tasks so it is all very frustrating.
One disastrous and expensive lot of workmen put me off getting anyone else in and so I'm down to helpful rfiends and family when they have the time, but I'd love to get someone in to finish off all those annoying little bits!

Having said all that, I've not had a bad year, started with winning a cruiose for two through the Telegraph - I go on 30th April 2011 - booked to leave on the very last date in case I meet a lovely new man in the meantime! I won

Hi All i have done two messages on here for some reason have not gone on the forums,I have been comping for 15 years and have had some brilliant prizes,A night at the Bafta's, a mother/daughter makeover/photoshoot, a hot air balloon flight a meal at Claridges plus numerous other prizes, it was always my aim to try and win a holiday and upto 3 years ago hadn't succeeded,but my perserverence paid off,i won a mini cruise to Amsterdam,a trip to Dublin, a trip to Spain, and then on entering in mine and my hubby's name he won a trip to the Ice Hotel in Swedish Lapland,which was amazing it was for 4 people,so we went with our two teenage daughters we got to eat Reindeer ,went snowmobiling,had an ice sculpting workshop and also got £1000 to spend.This year started off with a winning skiing trip to Montgenevre,which we are going on in Feb,and i was also really lucky to win a vip trip to the Tvchoice awards at the Dorchester, I went with my youngest daughter Sophie we had a brilliant night meeting and mingling with the stars, not to mention loads of photo's and a night in a top hotel.Last year was dismal and was the worst comping year, but i am so glad i didn't give up, so to all of you who are having a lean spell stick with it as when the prizes start rolling in it is so worth it xxxx

Hi Everyone and Merry Christmas

My name is David and also from Formby in Liverpool - obviously a popular area for compers.

I used to do comps quite seriously a few years ago when tiebreakers were all the rage and had reasonable success. I have only recently started comping again and see that nowadays most of the comps are straight draws. I went mad during November and entered just about every comp I could find where I was interested in the prize and didn't win a sausage. However there's always another month.

Best of luck everybody and have a great 2012.
