I was chuffed to win the final big prize a few years ago, a big rechargeable battery bank with 3 pin sockets, USB ports etc. Ideal for off grid camping, though itís really heavy. Itís now in the new garage / workshop, which doesnít have electricity, so we can use power tools or have a light on.
Lightning doesnít strike twice, but Iíll still play as itís a nice start to the day.

As the saying goes: you've got to be in it to win it, and it is free to participate, so what's not to like?

I won an Icey-tek coolbox either last year or the year before, thanks UKCS!
