First of all, I want to thank everyone who used my referral code in the sweepstakes.  Because of that, I was selected as the Grand Prize Winner!!  I rarely enter sweeps for trips, but this one I did since the location of the trip was close to home.  Unfortunately, I had to decline the trip due to a personal situaton that has recently arisen.  I will say that the sponser and the administator tried to help me out by offering to extend the date i could use the trip.  I told them I was very grateful for that, but due to the situation, I still had to decline.  After talking to them, I know that they tried their best,  they want to make a big deal of this showing off the winner at the Lodge.  This would have been my biggest win, just over $2100.00.  


No, I did not ask for something else in place.  I enterd knowing the prize and hoping to win it.  I do not believe the sponsor should have made any exceptions.  I am grateful for winning the prize and for all the help from the MR Sweepy Family for their referrals.  I take this a a positive sign of more big wins to come

What a wonderful and refreshing attitude.  Life can change our plans, but it is not the sponsor's responsibility to correct or compensate us for a trip win.  Hang in there and keep entering.  Another great sweep win will come your way.
