I also received all paperwork I almost pulled out when I called I told them I probably would be on chemo. I was told I have polycythemia vera. And that means leukemia. Anyway moral of story I will not be GOING TO the ranch. ( bummer) . Marlboro sent me a check and that's pure heaven . So I JUST wanted comment I hope you all have fun . Please post how. The trip was. Also does anyone know how TO find out the winners , is there a website TO visit I tried a lot of sites and cant find winners list for anything. I would greatly appreciate it thank you

Sandy Jungier. cartwright said...

Please does anyone know website address TO see winners list I have been looking all month. When We played the game they said it will be available after chill of the grid. They stated at the conclusion. We could go TO it

Jessy Brainerd said...

According to the "Official Rules" - The winner list will be posted after March 17, 2013, or after prizes have been awarded.

Sandy Jungier. cartwright said...

Thank you so much Jessie. Now I will stop obsessing on it . I thought I couldnt find it nowhere . I now I know why .I probably have 10 hrs of searching LOL I hope you have. A great trip

Michael Carlson said...

Im going jan 7th !!!!!

Jessy Brainerd said...

I am STILL waiting to hear when we'll be going. Today marks six weeks since we sent in the first set of papers. I've called a couple of times, and was told the last time (a week ago) that it can take 4-6 weeks for them to do the background check.

Sandy Jungier. cartwright said...

They sent me cash value of trip . And that really works better for me I was diagonosed with polycethimea Vera and that is leukemia I've been going to local cancer institute had none narrow biopsy waiting on results and just went on Oxegen blah blah I could go on and on

bryanne washington said...

I received an e-mail mid-november stating I've won the chill off the grid trip. sent all necessary papers on Dec 3rd, so I'm still waiting for my trip date. So excited to go back.

janelle said...

I got an invite to Rsvp on 12.22.12 so does that mean that I'm going for sure? This is the first time I've ever gotten anything like this so I'm a little confused on how it works.

I won the winter contest but I just got a letter from D L.Blair and now instead of getting the trip they are going to send me a check for $4910 the value of the trip. I know that my background was good I never have been in trouble before same with my guest they work a lot with the state police but now I can go were we want and when ever we want to . Has anyone else gotten the same letter ??

I also won and I was on medication and was to start chemo after The trip. And the person I was taking with me, Works for a big law firm where we live ' She is a Legal Secretary plus more . they also called me JLBlair company. So moral of story I was also sent a check and had to pay taxes on it when I did my taxes. The check came fast. All I can think of either my illness or Because I was on medication. I explained I knew my limits to what I could do , because I got worn done easily from my diagnoses .My doctors said I could go. I really wanted to but they would not let me . only question I have is did the other person you were going to take did they also get a check. Since now they have all there information.

Sandy Jungier. cartwright said...

To anoymous I was just reading comments people with heart disease and muscle disease. It seems to me your friends works around people of power my friend I was taken with me works for the biggest and best listed in Forbes magazine Law Firm she was going with me I have been asking for awhile if anyone else got the check and your the first also.I find this very interesting I am going to leave my name in case you want to contact me . Wonder if there being predujist against people that they assume could have higher contacts makes me wonder . sounds like my meds or treatments had nothing to do with it.Sandy

Hi everyone. I found out about a month ago that I had actually won a trip to the ranch. I am so excited because I don't win things like this but now I can't say never anymore. My dates for the ranch are Feb. 16-19th. F:-) or those of you who have the same dates maybe we will meet there.

Ryan Cunningham said...

I sent my first set of paper work in on 11/23 they got it on 11/25. Today FedEx called and said they are sending me an overnight envelope from DL Blair! Its been 4 weeks just like the paper work said! I seen people saying they are getting checks for the prize value instead? I wouldn't mind that, need a new car! And I'm so glad you made this blog about it, its helped us a lot! Thanks!

Peggy Rico said...

I know that I am getting more excited as the days go by. did anyone get confirmation that the second set of paperwork was received? im not sure if I should call to make sure that it was received.

mexicanskabrona said...

I am going to this Wonderful ranch on March 18-March 21st. I am REALLY excited! Being the Frugal Person, I am concerned about the Taxes that I will have to pay next year. Has anyone paid over the $600 they give you? I am afraid it may be more. Any info will be appreciated! :)

Anonymous said...

You should only have to pay taxes on 100 dollars first 500 you don't have to claim be

Well we also won the trip to the ranch the value of the trip is $4,910 which we would have to pay taxes on in January 2015 and get the check in the amount of $600 how much taxes would we have to pay on the trip any help would be great
