Where do you guys usually enter contests? Is there a central thread or site that keeps them easy to enter?

    Hard to even describe. The GolfWrx guys hit us with so much swag it was overwhelming. A private room at the Ford Hotel - just a wonderful stay in a little slice of automotive history. Incredible meals. And every driver imaginable with perfect fittings to insure great results. Made some great new friends. And just had an absolute blast. From beginning to end.

    Your current ID shows you've been here since 5/24/18. How could you claim the same members here win contests here over and over? What was your previous WRX name? For somebody that "only" joined here 7 or so weeks back you seem to act like you know plenty about WRX. Care to provide examples of what you claim?

    This is about the 3rd or 4th time you've come at me with the same comment and accusations. You do know you are able to read topics as a guest/visitor without actually being registered right? Is it wrong for me to read over various topics and notice things like that? Jeez, come to think of it I have seen your screen name on a scathing retort a time or two as well. You just like to instigate don't you? If you don't like a comment I made then just write it off, I don't know why you feel you need to play witch Hunter. Get off my back, I don't give free rides

    It's real simple. Provide proof that shows the same people winning WRX contests all the time as you've claimed. You made the claim now prove it.

    Why would I do work for something YOU claimed? Are you really that dense? You accuse WRX of holding contests with the same people winning all the time. You're asked to prove it and unsurprisingly you refuse to do so. Typical troll behavior. Keep making yourself look worse with each successive post.

    Well I didn't realize you couldnt read so here you go. My exact post.

    Never accused wrx of any wrong doing, I said I see familiar names that lead me to believe multiple wins.

    I never win anything in my life, but I’ll never forget logging on here and checking my messages, learning I won the Hogan irons in my signature.



    I had to read the message probably 100 times before replying just trying to make sure it was legit. Haven’t won anything before or since, but when talking on the phone with my mom after I found out I won, she said to enjoy it, because stuff like that happens maybe two or three times in life. Anyway, enter the contests in here, actual people actually win, to that I can attest

    Wasn't there a winner of this trip that didn't see the congratulatory email soon enough, didn't respond, and then someone else got chosen?

    There's giveaways and then there is reviews. You probably notice familiar names when it comes to reviews. I don't think those are random unless specified. I think they want members who have a track record of providing solid feedback and community interaction doing the reviews. For example, there seems to be a select group that review the new True Temper shafts. Same group of guys, but they do a good job providing feedback and launch data.

    I enter the giveaways and volunteer for gear trials etc. if they are giving away something that I might actually use. I also tend to avoid the contests that ask you to do anything more than post in the thread. In other words, I don't put my name in for all of them.



    Like the OP, I do get the sense that for some giveaways, and particularly the gear trials, that the WRX folks do curate the winners a bit. But, having seen some of the ridiculous problems/controversies that emerged around some of the giveaways - particularly the Callaway trips - I think they have a reason to be cautious.



    That being said, I did win a new driver from a giveaway this spring, and it was pretty sweet.
