    Compers Challenge 2018

    Compers Challenge 2018 3rd Oct 17 at 5:37 PM
    I am posting this thread now so we can have the compers challenge for next year ready to go at the beginning of January 2018 and so we are not rushing about trying to sort it out during the mad month of December Advents.

    2018 Comper Challenge.

    This year we are looking for about 40 players to take part in the yearly challenge.

    Each player will choose an easy challenge and a harder challenge.
    The first 12 compers to sign up will also choose a monthly challenge.

    Depending on how many sign up will decide how many challenges we have.

    You don't have to have your challenges ready now you have 2 months to think about those

    Next year you will only be allowed to cross off one challenge per day.

    You have until November 30th to add your name, no more names will be added after that.

    If you would like to join us next year please let us know below

    No more monthly challenges

    Thanks Folks

    We already have more than 12 so you may get 2 monthly challenges some months

    There are still loads of places left for anyone who would like to join all you have to do is choose an Easy Challenge and a Hard Challenge that we can all attempt next year.

    I've got mine figured out I want to win something I've never won before.

    I've been comping 10 years and in that time I've won loads of books, dvds, cds, kids toys and baby stuff, even cash (£500 so far). I've also won a holiday (Disneyland Paris ), days out tickets and even bedroom furniture.

    But there's lots of things I've never won - a mag daily, a phone/tablet, alcohol, kitchen appliances.

    So my personal challenge for next year is to enter a wider variety of comps and try and win something I've never won before
    November Wins:

    Get More Vitamin Drinks, Smiggle Advent Calender

    A Dog Friendly holiday but not in a hotel though, in one of those lodges in the forest or even a big static caravan at the seaside

    A one of those small round hoovers that you set away and they hoover the room for ya (can't think of name now) or one of those cordless Shark hoovers would be good too, lots of dog hair at the moment with my ladies moulting.

    Something from Hotel Chocolat

    Money of course.

    (My hard challenge is to win 5 separate prizes)

    It could be 1 prize or "x" amount of prizes over a year

    We might call you names though

    I don't mind some of the challenges doubling up, but most of us won't manage 1 laptop never mind 2

    Thanks for the PM Mansey

    I would love to join in again

    Since quite a few challenges are prize related or prize specific, I'm trying to think of ones that aren't. Just off the top of my head.....I'll change them if I think of something better!

    Easy challenge: win a prize package of 5 items or more (can be a collection of items or a hamper - food, toiletries, stationary etc.)

    Hard challenge: win a competition with more than 10,000 entries

    Personal challenge: win something worth more than £200 (since this has evaded me so far!)
