View Full Version : I think we need a contest....

04-20-2005, 12:33 AM
... it's been a long time since we've done a contest here at the Planet. And since I do have multiple copies of the cool radio promo of Trisha's single... which... for the record... contains the album version of the song which is nearly a minute longer than the radio single... I think I need to give a copy away.

So, I'm open to suggestions. Do y'all like the idea of a contest? Or should I auction it off for charity? Or should I just use them as coasters?

BTW, the front cover of the promo is posted in the Trisha picture thread in the main Garth forum, if you haven't seen it yet.

A contest would be fun.... :gulp:

-sandi <------ about to faint at the "multiple copies of the single comment"

Count me in for a contest :D

I'd sure love one of those cds seeing as we get NOTHING down here in Oz :P

Lynette....praying you have something I can actually be a part of :P

J, you're my hero!

I think there should be a contest *and* a charity! :D If you have multiple copies then I say anything to raise my chances of getting one!!!


04-20-2005, 01:14 AM
I'll play, but if I win you can auction it off to charity :D


04-20-2005, 01:19 AM
I'm charity. :D


04-20-2005, 01:48 AM
sadis, if you're charity, so am I! We need a bloody country radio here, I mean I'd be the only listener, but who cares, right? So I'm all for the contest... Though if I was to slipp you a crisp 20$, would that work? j/j

04-20-2005, 01:57 AM
Great idea, J! I'm up for a contest.

I'm up for a contest too!

I want a contest. I promise not to rip the CD into an MP3. I promise. I promise.

I have a good question for the contest: in what city was I born. Then when I answer, you can just mail me my copy...


04-20-2005, 01:16 PM
I like the ebay idea myself.....I got a credit card and I know how to use it....you got paypal??? LOL

04-20-2005, 01:22 PM
I vote for both, if it's possible :).


04-20-2005, 01:29 PM
A Trisha contest to win a her new single & give something for charity, that's a great idea! :applause:
I can't wait to hear the details.


04-20-2005, 02:24 PM
paypal is horrible!! Please dont use it!! they're reps are im possible to get a hold of etc.. J-I'm all in for charity and a game :)

God and peace,
Vanessa :)

04-20-2005, 02:43 PM
I'm ready to play!

I promise not to rip the CD into an MP3. I promise. I promise.
Isn't it a bit late to be making that promise? ;)

04-20-2005, 03:36 PM
What if I know where you were born? lol...cause i think i do
Lisa - btw - Welcome to the Planet - isn't this cool?

04-20-2005, 03:41 PM
NO it's not a late to make that promise. I have never EVER ripped Georgia Rain off of a CD. :)

Lisa - then you have to send it to me. :)

A Contest would be a great idea,J.-I mean,Charity would too...But a contest-we haven't really had one in a while.So,I guess that has my vote.:)


04-20-2005, 04:51 PM
That would be sooo cool. i'm all for Charity or a contest. Either one works for me... i would soo love a copy of that CD I dont have any country radio around my area here.....i heard the single on XM radio. It's an amazing song :D

04-20-2005, 09:07 PM
Hmmm... the copying issue is one I hadn't thought about.

04-20-2005, 10:53 PM
I think's that very generous of you Joyce. I like the idea of a contest too. It would add some excitement. Maybe you could somehow combine having a contest with collecting for a charity if it's not too much of a headache.


04-21-2005, 08:18 AM
My most brilliant ideas come to me while in the shower.

Ok, I've come up with something that will benefit a charity, give everyone who wants to a chance to participate, and give one lucky winner a copy of the radio promo to play in their CD player.

I need a few days to set up the logistics and run it by the PG...er... PT staff to make sure it's cool with them, since it is their Planet. In the mean time, I'll take suggestions for a charity that's close to Trisha's heart.


04-21-2005, 09:04 AM
Cool, thanks J!

I remember when Garth and Trisha were on Hollywood Squares several years ago Trisha mentioned a charity called One Voice. I'll see if I can find any more info.

UPDATE: I found some old articles which mention Trisha supporting One Voice but I can't find anything recent about them.

She's a big fan of Humane Society type of charities...although we're currently collecting for that on ty.com.

She tends to go for things that aren't "big", more independently/locally run (i.e., Walden's Puddle, a specific shelter, etc.). :)

04-21-2005, 09:14 AM
oh oh OH!

We need something independently run... locally run.... locally run close to her heart - in Jasper County!

I know Monticello is a pretty small town, but is there something in Jasper County... perhaps a homeless or domestic violence shelter... something that would take people in or pets in... out of the Georgia Rain?

04-21-2005, 09:19 AM
VERY good thinking J! My mind doesn't work well this early in the morning! ;)

04-21-2005, 10:39 AM
I'm sure Monticello has an independently run animal shelter! :) Excellent idea, J.


04-21-2005, 09:31 PM
Anyone opposed to the Jasper County Humane Society, in Monticello, GA being the beneficiary of our little contest?



04-21-2005, 09:39 PM
:D :D :D



04-21-2005, 10:04 PM
Sounds great to me :D Good choice.


04-21-2005, 11:07 PM
Works for me too!

04-21-2005, 11:29 PM
I'm in! :)

04-22-2005, 12:56 AM
Sounds great:)

04-22-2005, 02:50 AM
Good idea J!

04-23-2005, 10:21 PM
Ok, I've sent off all my suggestions to the PG staff... I think a couple of them are out of town, but hopefully we'll have something to announce early next week!


04-23-2005, 10:42 PM
great idea :)

God and peace,
Vanessa :)

04-24-2005, 02:32 PM
*Great* idea for a charity! I'm so in! <waiting anxiously for news> :)


04-25-2005, 01:22 PM
A contest and a charity and some lucky winner gets a cd of the single? What could be better?! This is quite exciting!

07-05-2005, 11:08 PM
i think having a contest would be fun :) i say lets go for it

07-06-2005, 08:21 AM
This is an old thread... we did indeed have a contest. Kayla (musicfan43) won Trisha's CD.
