    If so what did you win.
    The only thing I've won is a beach towel. I also won a pepsi soccer ball.

    Other people in my family have won family trips to Disneyland Paris and Lapland, which I went on which is cool.

    I once one a fantasy novel by entering a photographic caption competition run by the original Octarine Terry Pratchett Fan Club. I believe I was approximately 15 years old.

    My brother won a ten-day all-expenses holiday to Thailand in February 2003.

    Guess who got the luck in OUR family...

    I was in the attic at me ma's gaff a while back when I found an ancient, deformed t-shirt. I'd no idea what it was, but knew I should have, so I asked the ould doll and she reminded me I'd won some class of a poetry competition in the Irish Times when I was about 5. The whole class got t-shirts, I think. There was a goat on them. I drew a total blank on the whole scenario until the next day when the poem suddenly resurfaced in my wee brain. But I've completely forgotten it again since, and won't be posting it!

    Won some stuff on TV as well, including a TV.

    When I was in 6th class in school (long, long time ago), we'd have a draw every Friday and the winner got to bring the prize in the following week! I won a mirror one week and brought a cake that my mother made in the following week.

    I've won lots in my youth at Feis Maitiu - speech and drama comp each year in Cork.

    I won a baseball hat and t-shirt in karaoke about 10 years ago.

    On the basis of the above, I belive I'm owed alot!! :p

    I won a school uniform contest in a local nightclub a year ago, I came third in the vote but there was a draw then for the prizes, the winneres got first pick of three envelopes, then the girl who came second picked and then me and they ended up with "gold membership" to the club while I swanned off with a hundred euro in me little bag.
    Was really funny, because they'd spent loads and loads of money on their uniforms where as I just threw mine together from stuff I already had.
