    Wow, someone's complained big time I'm guessing.
    Or perhaps it's the start. Newspapers and mags wanting people to
    buy in order to win. I wonder, if that's the case, they don't make their
    comps cut-out entry form only.

    So between the Sunday Star Times putting their foot down and the Sunday News near-complete lack of comps now , it seems our only shining light on a Sunday will be the Herald...wahoo the Herald then

    What a pity, I love going in for these comps, as it made it much easier than posting. Thanks jo for letting us all know and also thanks to azpen for the many posts that was done via Sunday Star Times.

    Thanks jo for the information regarding the rules.

    Here's a little poem that I thought would brighten everyone's day - wherever you are in New Zealand.

    When you're lonely, I wish you LOVE
    When you're sad, I wish you JOY
    When you're discouraged, I wish you HOPE
    When your spirit is low, I wish you BEAUTY
    When you're troubled, I wish you PEACE

    I have to admit I'm in two minds
    I don't always buy the newspaper and it's probably the paper that has the best competitions so on the odd weeks I don't buy it, I look forward to seeing the competitions :)

    But I can also understand their point of view - Their comps are for those that buy the paper :)

    Guess i'll just have to make sure i buy it each week now lol

    Just want to say a BIG thanks to Azpen for having always made the effort to post their comp's for us. That was really cool of you to do that every Sun morning.

    Shame we can't keep entering this way, but I guess I can see it from both angles.

    Have to agree with Jo though that it was still kind've advertising and exposure for them when we posted their comp's on this website. As Requiem says, it was 'good while it lasted'....

    Thanks azpen for all you work, I did notice about 625 hits last week, the Sunday-Star Times will notice a big drop in their e-mails. LOL
    Incidently, someone posted a NZ Organ Society comp for a CD, & I noticed the promoter commented she had 23 members apply from one family (OCD for a CD I reckon. & happy comping azpen & Contest.

    Thanks azpen I was looking through the paper while shopping today and a old lady told me i had to buy the paper to read it. I told her i owned the shop and could do anything. She moved away very fast.
