Rubbing The PCH Prize Patrol Van For Good Luck!

On a recent PCH Prize Patrol trip in Southwest Michigan, we made someone other than our winner very excited! My partner Jack and I pulled the Prize Patrol van into a liquor store parking lot so we could pick up some last-minute champagne for the winner we were about to surprise. (Buying locally not only helps the local economy wherever we go; it’s also a lot easier than lugging the champagne in our suitcases!)

There were two of us Prize Patrol Deputies standing in line behind a woman buying lottery tickets. We listened patiently next to her as she told the cashier of her worries that the plant she worked at would soon close. We were wearing our official Prize Patrol jackets and buying champagne around 11 AM on a weekday, but she didn’t seem to notice us standing there. She left the store as we began paying for our champagne, but seconds later she burst back through the door having seen the Prize Patrol van parked outside next to her car. “Are you looking for me???” she yelled at us excitedly with a big smile and waving her company ID nametag.

Unfortunately for her, she wasn’t our prize winner that day, but we encouraged her to keep entering the PCH Sweepstakes. She asked us if she could rub the Prize Patrol van for good luck and we of course encouraged her to—we love meeting people like her while we’re out on the road! We can’t promise that rubbing the Prize Patrol van will help her luck, but it sure won’t hurt!

Ide be wondering who was the lucky winner in town, and of course hope it was me. Knowing me ide be looking at the detail of the logo.
Wonder if it was Dave driving and the elite prize patrol.

As we pass each day through the month of August 2011, the anxiety seems to grow faster and faster as we all look at our August calendar. It seems somewhat difficult to read about other people’s feelings regarding their emotional stability (or lack of it) as we come closer to the special day of August 31 and the possibility of the VAN coming around everyone’s corner. Guess how we’re all going to feel in 16 more days and sit on pins and needles on that special Wednesday. We just all have to have power and prayers and hope it truly will come down our driveway. Good luck to all.

Just reading your recent blog about the PCH Prize Patrol trip in Southern Michigan, I found my own comments I sent to you 16 days before the announcement of the winner off the August 31 SUPER PRIZE. I Mentioned how we (my wife and I were feeling the anxiousness of waiting for the announcement of the upcoming winner. Shortly after that, I received a special telephone call from a friendly lady
representing PCH who began to ask all kinds of informational questions regarding our income, how often we purchased items that were offered,and was there pressure on us to purchase them. My answers were honest and forthright, but a question that the lady never asked was “Do you have a home mortgage and if so, how much might that be?” I wish she had asked that because the answer would have been, “Over $48,000 left and at the age of 77, we still have over four years to complete the payments. That wonderful Aug 31 Sweepstakes would have helped us tremendously!! Oh well, I think we came very close to becoming a WINNER that time, MAYBE NEW TIME!

Just sitting at the table wondering where the patrol van will be in 50 minutes. I would be so thankful if they stopped here. I pray that wherever they go,that the selected family will use it wisely to bless others as well. I pray that it will not create greed and friction, but will bring sunshine. Health, and happiness the recipients.
