Sometime last week I signed up to try getting free tickets to a concert at our local summer venue (where I'll be seeing Josh Turner in July). I didn't think I'd get the tickets, as I never do; but figured why not try since Mother's Day was approaching. Well just 20 minutes ago I got a phone call from a number I didn't know, so I let it go to voicemail. And holy wow! I wasn't excepting what I heard when I listened to it. I WON!! I won two tickets to see "ABBA the concert" at the Melody tent August 8th!! I'm so happy!! And I hope my mom and I enjoy it! (Yes, I did call them back right after hearing the voicemail, and they confirmed the tickets would be waiting for us there the night of the show). This is so exciting for me! I've never won anything like this before! And I hope my mom is as excited when she sees the Facebook post I tagged her in about it. Have you ever won tickets to anything?

Wow that is awesome! =) I don't win things often but once I won a gift basket full of really awesome things I needed from a local raffle. That was exciting to me!

I don't want to go to anything so I would not apply to win. I was offered a ticket to the circus I would not enjoy so I turned them down. I don't like crowds.

I don't either. But this isn't like a big venue with hundreds of people. Its maybe 100 people max. Very small and every seat is a good close seat. I love it.

Giiiirl, that's so awesome! Big congrats, and I hope you two have a blast! As for your question - I was one of the 10 winners to a Jeff Hardy meet and greet back in '08, but I've never won any tickets to an actual event.

That is wonderful!!! So glad you won!! I have never won tickets, but I did win $50 for groceries by answering a question correctly on a radio show. I won two lamps once, but that was because I was a perfume model and a contest was going on so I was bored and filled out a lot of ballots for myself. Heck, I was young when I did that, and I gave the lamps as a gift.

Yes, but I worry. They didn't ask for your credit card information or first born son or anything, did they? I've won tons for free cruises, if I only...

@Courtlynn E-mail, phone number, date of birth, and bank account number? Heh. maybe I've grown too cynical in my old age.

@TheHorse no just email and number and it was the venues site that did it. I wouldnt have done it otherwise. Im not stupid.
