Welcome to Frijid Pink's 18th "Free Magic Giveaway Contest".
Contests 9 through 12 were held on the Spookclub Forums, all the others were held on these Penguin Forums.

As mentioned before I've decided to share some of my magic with fellow Magicians that I no longer have a use for or have decided I can live without. This contest comes at absolutely no cost to you. The items I'm giving away are totally free, I even pay the postage.

:arrow: Please pay particular attention to all Rules and Restrictions. Any deviations could possibly result in your disqualification from this contest.

:arrow: CONTEST RULES AND RESTRICTIONS ...

:arrow: (1) Only those who reside in the US are eligible.
Reason/s: My investment of the item to be won is has already come out of my own pocket ... and the shipping/postage is coming out of my own pocket. I am on a limited Disability Income, disabled and have difficulty getting to the Post Office. Winner will receive the item secured in simple packaging with Stamp/Post Office postage. Nothing special, but what the heck, it's FREE to you! I apologize for the residential restriction but maybe some of you other countymen could consider running your own contest/s.

:arrow: (2) All entrants must have a minimum of 300 posts on the Penguin Magic Forums.
You must have at least shown that you are a contributor to the Penguin Forums and not just entered the Contests with a minimum amount of posts to take advantage of a free magic offer. Your other contributions, financial and/or purchases from Penguin Magic are not my concern, only your post contributions. In order to be fair too those who enter my Contests that have contributed to the Forums, I have to ask that all entrants who enter have made a fair contribution as well.
Other than the above, all Penguins are eligible ... meaning any registered member of the Penguin Magic Forums who reside in the US, and have a minimum post count of 300.

:arrow: (3) Only one (1) entry per person.
Attempting to make more than one entry in any form will result in immediate disqualification. This means no use of multiple user names or editing of messages to change your guesses/answers to the contest. All edited/changed guesses/answers will result in disqualification.
:arrow: CAUTION: The Penguin Forum Moderators can and will check for infractions on multiple user names and message editing on all entries. ..... You have been warned.

:arrow: (4) Winner must be available to be PM'ed or E-mailed.
When the winner is chosen and announced I will need a way to contact them to get their address to send them the prize/s won.

:arrow: (5) After notification you will have one (1) week to claim your winning Prize/s.
Make a note to yourself, or write down on your Calender, the date of the Contest ending time so that you may check back to see if you’ve won. After 1 week of notification all unclaimed Prizes will automatically default to the second winner.

:arrow: (6) At the end of the Contest I will make a post to announce the winner. I will then notify the winner for their address and the topic will be open for comments and congratulations to the winner, and I'll start my next contest soon after.

:arrow: END OF CONTEST RULES AND RESTRICTIONS
--------------------------------------------------------------------

:arrow: This 18th Contest will run for one (1) week, starting at the time it’s posted and ending the evening of May 10th , 2008.

Some comments of note:

You see folks, how easy it is to get the answers to these types of magic related questions ? ... People can look them up and find the answers just as fast and easily as I can!

No more magic related Q&A Contests. :lol:

Far too fast ... I schedule my Contests to run for 1 week for the express purpose of giving more people a chance at winning. If in the event the Contest ends too soon that means less people are getting the chance to participate.
Like I said, these Q&A types of Contests are subject to end soon because everybody has the same opportunity to find the answers as quickly as I do.
Unless I can come up with something else that won't allow the Contests to end too soon, I guess I'm gonna hafta go back to the Number Guessing for my next few Contests.

Yeah I would make questions most likely would not be on Google. But then they may never be answered either. It is tough to find a fine line between the two. But I would probably do it in more riddle form like B_Magic did, and really make people think. Or how Alvo did, where Google does not really help you much.
