Well, the contest is over…did you participate?

The winners:
1st prize (1-year subscription to Them Days): Kathy Michelin
2nd prize (Labrador Colouring Book by Gerald Mitchell): Fiona Andersen
3rd prize (2014 Calendar): Ewan McNeill
Participation (Current issue): Allan McNeill

Congratulations to the winners, and thanks to everybody who played!

This project started when my friend/collaborator John Gaudi (you’ll remember him from Game On, or you might know his voice if you listen to Labrador Morning) came up with the idea and we started working on it together…it went through a few changes (originally it was going to be Labrador book quotes) and then it became an official partnering between our workplaces and became what you saw on Hamilton River Road if you were in Happy Valley-Goose Bay, or heard on the radio if you were listening to CBC Radio’s Labrador Morning radio program.

It was so much fun to talk to people doing the scavenger hunt…while John and I were putting up some signs, people stopped and talked with us, called out song names, pulled up and wrote things down. People would call, or come up to me to ask questions about the hunt…it was so much fun and I’m glad people really enjoyed playing along! I got a real kick out of seeing people pull over near a sign and start writing. It was awesome!
