Publishers Clearing House Prize Patrol in Gig Harbor!
Yesterday while taking advantage of the beautiful day to get some new photos, I started chatting with another "photographer" standing beside me. We were down at the old ferry landing trying to get the perfect shot of a sailboat making its way across Gig Harbor Bay.
As it turns out, Andrew, the other photographer was visiting from New York and was here on a very special mission. He and his associate, John were members of the Prize Patrol from Publisher's Clearing House and had come to Gig Harbor to award a prize to a local resident. How cool is that!?
Now I'll admit, I've always been a tad skeptical about whether these prizes ever actually existed. I'm pretty sure I'm not alone here.... But as I talked to Andrew and John, I learned a little about the various regional contests. There are contests based on your first name, initials - all kinds of fun little things. So they award many more prizes than just the big one in February. Who knew?
To see a winner in Gig Harbor assured me that there indeed is a Publishers Clearing House Prize Patrol. In fact Andrew and John are headed to Seattle to award another prize today.
What a fun job that must be!
