Any winners out there. Who won the boat?

I got a certified letter in the mail yesterday from Overtons and got all excited. I won eighth prize, a uniden $99.00 marine radio. Better than a sharp stick in the eye.

I'll check my mail this year. Last year, someone in CA won the 197. I had to write Overtons to get the winners list.

Overtons didn't get any of my money this year. Back in 2003 (i think) a guy in WI won, and at the end of the season I saw the boat being prepped at my dealer. He had taken the credit on the 19Skier and paid the diff to get a PS209. That was one happy dude!

You know you can register once per day, per person for free, right?

10-14-2005, 11:29 AM
Didnt know that, duly noted for next year with thanks....! Tried to stay away from the equipment shopping sites this summer, the gear is fresh enough and plenty of other expenses to occupy the wallet.....

Hey, in the end, neither of us won that 197 (well not yet). You just didn't waste your time registering on a regular basis.

They warned me they'd be sending the IRS some paperwork for me.

10-14-2005, 04:12 PM
I did that also and I would still really like to know that increased my odds and how! I'm thinking all my time registering only counted as one...

I literally did it once per day during the 04 contest for both me and my wife. Didn't even get one of those crappy tubes (fortunately).

Didn't go quite so much this year.

I never win anything.

With my luck I probably won the boat and threw out the notice with all the junk mail so they awarded it to someone who actually takes the time to read that stuff. :rolleyes:

10-14-2005, 04:57 PM
congrats on that... i think im going ot check my mail now!

10-14-2005, 05:00 PM

Mark, where are you getting these avatars.
He's got me confused http://www.deephousepage.com/smilies/conf47.gif

Looks like I didn't win again this year, at least I don't have to find a place to store it for the winter.

Mark, where are you getting these avatars.

right click and go to properties


if you get bored, you can read how they transpired here:

you must have been busy, because I don't think you posted any to that thread above...but we had some good laughs

also, it looks like they're adding smilies to that link dailyhttp://deephousepage.com/smilies/gossip.gif

Right clicking tells me that the text is in English. What am I supposed to be right clicking on?

That thread has hilarious smilies in it, but I don't see any of them in the smilie window I usually use.

/edit. Wait, does this work?

Alrighty. Now how do I do it where it's not an attachment and not one of the TMC approved smilies?

10-15-2005, 11:03 AM
Right click on smiley
Click on properties
Check out address (URL) web page smiley is linked to
Find a smiley
Copy URL to clipboard
Use Insert Image option in post

which browser you using?

go to this page, HIGHLIGHT everything on the smiley you want to post.....
from to

once it's highlighted, RIGHT click on the highlighted portion, select COPY (copies the image text to clipboard)

come on back in here, post a reply...
where the cursor is, RIGHT click, and select PASTE (pastes image text from clipboard)

as mentioned above..... the IMAGE iconhttp://www.tmcowners.com/teamtalk/images/editor/insertimage.gif won't be required with this method

it's tremendously easy after a few timeshttp://deephousepage.com/smilies/banghead.gif
