Contest Goes Completely Nuts, And…

That’s it! That’s it!!! We’ve lost our collective minds… Somehow Da Gizz has got yet more prizes… Look, we’re just two “store cats”, but we know insanity when we see it. Check out the latest:

First, there’s the grand daddy of all prizes, a two hour sail for six guests aboard the schooner “Tyrone“… Wow! Just look at her…

OK, being a hack boat builder and moderator for two boat-building forums, I can step out of the usual and speak with some degree of authority on this one… The boat above was designed by none other than Sam Crocker. She is without a hint of a shadow of a doubt an American masterpiece. Think of it as the boating version of Ella Fitzgerald… Just to touch her is worth the $500, let alone a two hour adventure for six… Tell you what, if you don’t win or even enter the contest… So what!?! Contact: matthew@capecodlavenderfarm.com and get your butt on board. For me at least, boats like that are life changing events. No kidding.

Alrighty then, back to that contest…

The Cape Sea Grille has ponied up a $25 gift certificate. Very nice.

Ditto for Malley Designs with yet another $25 gift certificate…

What’s that? You don’t like free contests? OK… Put the contest aside. But speaking as a cat who’s been on Cape Cod in one way, shape, or form since 1958, I’m telling you that the merchants who are offering these prizes bring serious game.  These businesses are rife with value.

And what are the other prizes??? Well…

All you have to do is leave a comment with your guess as to the number of corks are in the bottle


And as if the contest wasn’t enough… This whole idea of a pot-luck block party set for the cork counting date of the afternoon of Feb. 14, Valentine’s Day is going crazy as well. Just show up and bring some food. Heck, everybody through the door gets a prize of some sort. (And it ain’t crap either!)

Look, we cats have got to sign off before Da Gizz catches us using the computer again. (He’ll never figure out how we cracked his passwords… Hehehe…)

But there’s more coming… And you won’t believe it!

Two cats blogging right by those racks
