Apparently I won 2nd place and for the prize you win a Tapas Party Cookbook.
When you get into recipe contesting it’s a whole new world and job in itself. I have pendiflex folders to sort out upcoming contest with all the rules printed on contest I plan to enter and then another folder sorted by announcement month of contest I have entered. I then have a 3rd folder for ideas. Often times you forget about a contest because it’s months later before they announce. The reason I’m sharing this info is because I was about to announce my excitment on the message board of a contest site I’m a member of when I read someone else had won 2nd place. I had to pull the “Experience the Heart of Spain” contest info and re-read the details and it says –
“RANDOM DRAW FOR SECONDARY PRIZES: On or about November 17, 2008, all remaining eligible entrants will be automatically entered into a random drawing to determine the five hundred (500) winners of the Secondary Prizes.”
So the funny thing to me is that I placed 2ndish along with 499 other people! Oh well, I’m thankful that I was picked and I’ll never turn down a cookbook. (If you ask my husband and I’m sure he’ll try to mail you some just to make room and probably thinks I would never know!)
You win some and you loose some, but at least I gave it my all! Best of luck to all of my other contesting buddies, I know it’s tough out there and if you’re interested in getting into it contact me and I’ll help you out on where to get started.
