Winner Announcement ~ Celebrate Girlfriends Contest

Pack your bags to one lucky Girlfriend!

It’s been an amazing month on social media for GoGirlfriend. Our first contest and we’re very grateful to Lansdowne Resort for sponsoring our prize (more below).

Without further ado, the winner is…drum roll please…


Pam Flynn, you WIN!!! By the way, this video was shot with our Nokia 920 as part of our Holiday Swap Challenge with Microsoft Canada.

More than 1,000 people entered this contest and the retweets and shares were fantastic. Our community manager, Meaghan, was up to the challenge though and did a fabulous job of connecting with everyone – thank you Meaghan!

Pam didn’t submit a twitter handle so we’ll be shooting an email your way to notify you. You have seven days to get in touch with us and claim your prize – December 30, 2012. If we don’t hear from you by then, we’ll draw another name – so get on the phone, girlfriend!

Talk about a great way to start the holidays, right?

  • On Cuba Travel ~ 10 Things You Need to Know Before You Go, Gordon Mitchell said "Over the last few years The $25 departure tax has been included in your airfare. Make sure you convert your cash at the airport so you can buy a cold beer on the bus on your way to the resort. They will take canadian money but not loonies and toonies. "

  • On 5 Nudist Resorts that Will Blow Your Mind, John Ruze said "Hi Julia, There is a brand new, very popular nudist resort you should think about reporting on in your next article about naturism. It is the New Terra Cotta Clothing Optional Resort and Spa in sunny Palm Springs, California.. The original Terra Cotta Inn was a fantastic nude resort. Repeat guests from around the world stayed there. TCI was sold in Nov 2015 and greatly missed. Well, this July 2017, it was revived at a new location in Palm Springs. The site is HotelTerraCotta.com. Guests are super happy. It's perfect for couples and girlfriend getaways. And Tom and Mary Clare from the original Terra Cotta Inn work with us, so it has the same relaxing, fun feel. "
