We stopped at Bass Pro on the way home for their pre-Black Friday campout from 5-8 p.m., the idea being that people will camp out before the sale (not likely). We went last year and it was cold, wet and miserable and the fire and smores came in handy. This year it got up to 81 so no fire or smores. We didn't get there until the 6:30 drawing and at 7, dh won a $50 gift card. You had to be present to win and there probably wasn't more than 15 adults there (kids couldn't win). One guy won a $25 card at 6:30 and they left. His wife's name was drawn at 7 (she had left) and then another person who wasn't there and then my hubby. The woman who won the camping package at the end was so excited that no one could feel disappointed. She even asked for my daughter to be in the picture with her. It was her third year there. Everyone left saying they would see us next year.
There are more giveaways Saturday and Sunday and you don't have to stay once you sign up. You do have to sign up each morning. And the ones we filled out today go towards the national sweepstakes. What was nice was that after each drawing, we each got to put another entry in.
And what does Katie want her dad to buy with the card? $50 worth of fudge, of course!!
