Smarty Scoop on Weekend Events & Giveaway!!!

By Rachel H and Katie M

Before we get to our list of the weekend activities, we have a question ... How many of you have a son who has been watching TV and then comes running up to you claiming that he just HAS to go see the Monster Truck Show? Oh yes, we have all seen the commercials and heard the roar of the engines and probably ignored our children's pleas to go. Well, no more ignoring the requests, because now you can WIN two free tickets to the show on Friday night 7:30pm, Jan. 15th, 2010. This can of course be a great bonding moment between dad and son if the girls aren't up for it!

All you need to do is click here (This contest has now ended) to register. Be sure you are a TSP newsletter subscriber first (just enter your email in the newsletter sign-up box in the upper right of our website). We will be choosing one random winner each day up until the day of the event. At the end of each day's blog we will announce our winner. Stay tuned and good luck!

If you are interested in purchasing tickets for the Monster Jam, follow this link! Now on to our weekend events ...
