Here's how PD Bob Barnett is celebrating the Holiday season (firstname.lastname@example.org) in Miami:
Several times each weekday, the Mystery Reindeer for that day is announced. Throughout the day, at the cue to call, a designated caller who correctly identifies the Mystery Reindeer wins a pair of tickets to the 2005 Kiss Country Chili Cookoff, featuring live performances by Hank Williams Jr., Keith Urban, Montgomery/Gentry, Big & Rich and Katrina Elam at C.B. Smith Park in Pembroke Pines, two GameWorks gamecards and a copy of the board game "Cranium."
Each winner also becomes qualified to win the grand prize, over $33,000 worth of merchandise, including a 2004 Ford Ranger 4X2 Edge Supercab, a $1,000 Sports Authority gift certificate, a Honda Four Trax Rancher 4X4 ATV, an NPS 50 Ruckus Scooter and 24 one hour GameWorks gamecards. The grand prize drawing was scheduled for January 2, 2005.
