It's been away for a while, but it's finally back. That's right, the OCC Christmas Contest is here! We have plenty of great prizes to win, including two grand prizes that are sure to appeal to practically everyone. There are some rules for the whole thing, of course, so let's get right to it!
In order to be eligible for the contest, you just need to be a member of OCC. It's open worldwide, so get your entry in pronto!
To enter, send an email titled "OCC 2017 Christmas Contest" to [email protected] with your name, forum name, shipping address, and phone number, since Bosco does need a means to contact you if you happen to win one of the grand prizes.
Also included in your email will be answers to the following two questions:
What is your next planned upgrade for 2018?
What hardware news got you most excited in 2017?
Failure to include any information, even the answers, will result in deletion of your email.
CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED. PLEASE CHECK http://forums.overcl...12#entry2163041TO SEE IF YOU WON. THANK YOU ALL!


The grand prizes will be drawn on Christmas Day, December 25, with Bosco calling in the morning to the two happy winners. Don't have your phone on silent and miss the call! The rest of the prize winners will be announced on December 27.

I have been a member of this great club for quite a few years. I don't really post much, unless i really have something to say, but i come here daily for a fresh scoop on whats new in the computer (and not only) world. I've seen quite a few Christmas contests and even won prizes. Where i am going with this is... I'd like to thank all the members, Bosco and my personal favorite news writer Guest_Jim and all the staff for keeping this community alive and going! Keep up the good work and keep them news, contests, reviews and silly (sometimes!) forum posts coming, you're all a great bunch, Merry Xmas and happy New Year! Good luck to all who decides to participate in the XMas contest!

There are two kinds of people in this world: those who can extrapolate from an incomplete data...
