    Last time it was here, I won a 2 cookies! - my finest hour! I haven't gone to a Tim Hortons since the game started though, and I never drink the coffee, just tea and hot chocolate.

    I've won a cookie, a muffin, and a donut.

    Oh...handy tip...

    Make sure you roll up the entire rim the whole way around. Last year a lady won a bike on a fluke. She rolled the rim at the spot where it tells you and she got "play again", but as she played with the cup, not paying attention, she unrolled the entire rim to fine a "winner" on the other side.

    So roll the entire rim just to be sure.

    I haven't been to Tims since the promotion started.

    [Lando]Its not my fault[/Lando] there isn't a Tim's in walking distence form my school or home, I don't have a car and I'm too lazy to take the bus to go to get doughnuts.

    Moncton, eh?
    Today a guy in a Tim Hortons shirt came into the store, and I asked him if the XL's have a bigger chance of winning than the M's and L's - and he said no, same chance for all the sizes.

    YJN, that's a *really* good tip! I'll have to keep that in mind.

    True story, my friend and i where walking to school one day, years ago, and we came across a tims coffee cup on the ground. Why we signalled this one out from all of the garbage in the town is sstill a mystery, anyways my friend said "$5 that i'll roll up the rim and win a donut er something". he did to. But i wouldnt give him the money cuz he won a muffin, which technically isnt a dount.

    I believe him I'm 0 for 20.

    This is a killer on self confidence.

    Finally! A free coffee!

    Well, free, if you don't consider the 13 we had to pay for to get it. :)
