Jou have to enter to be in with a chance of winning. So I very seldom enter and guess what I am not disapointed, I dont win.
I edit a small motorcycle club magazine a few years ago when we had over 100 members I was able to blag prizex from various companies. However now we only have about 20 members I dont have the cheek to ask. When I did offer prizes I often didn't have a problem with a winner as the enteries were in single figures. In my book a prety poor show.
When people pass a comment that so and so is not what it was etc. you can often trace that coment back to the change of Editor or editorial police dictated from on high!!.
I agree Plans and Projects is a very good publication. The plans are in my view for inspiration rather than pure production. However a great help. Only trouble is I will have to get a new filing cabinet I am geting so many.

I've won a few things from Good Wood myself in the last three-years; most recently a Veritas bevel-up smoothing plane for my Tip of the Month and then a £25 voucher to spend on more Veritas stuff.
I did win a cheap nailgun from Tacwise, which I never use. After entering a monthly draw to win more stuff from their website, immediately after winning the gun, I won another £1,000-worth of Tacwise gear (most nails). It's all stacked up in the garage somewhere...
I did win a £25 (?) discount voucher for the Joint-Genie after finishing as a runner-up in that competition. They were offering the same discount on their website at the anyway, but I still went ahead and purchased one. Although, in all honesty, I still haven't tried it out yet.
If you don't enter, you don't win! That's what I say.
