Dawn wins Wii console

DAWN Bailey, of Grafton, had only a vague idea about what a Wii console was before she won one through The Daily Examiner this week.

The 71-year-old grandmother of seven said she’d seen the game advertised in catalogues but had no idea how revolutionary it was in the gaming world.

The prize pack includes the console, a Wii Fit board and game, a Mario Kart kit and Wii Sports game valued at $495.

Though Dawn said she had no plans to keep the game at her home, exactly where the package will end up is still up in the air.

A daughter-in-law offered to buy the prize, but Dawn hasn’t ruled out the option of drawing straws.

“Wherever it ends up it will be appreciated,” Dawn said.

But will Dawn become a 21st gamer?

“I’ll give it a go because that’s just who I am but I don’t think I’ll get right into it.”

Well, Dawn – you haven’t played Wii Tennis yet have you?

Dawn, who collected coupons for weeks to win her Wii, won a barbecue some time ago from Boots Outdoor store through a Daily Examiner competition.

She is excited about the paper’s latest competition for $500 cash locally and $10,000 cash regionally which starts tomorrow. Entrants are asked to collect ‘Daily Dollars’ coupons, each valued at a fictional $500, to the value of $10,000 and send them to ‘Daily Dollars Competition’, PO Box 271, Grafton NSW 2460.

The competition closes at midday on March 31 and the $500 winner will be announced in The Daily Examiner’s public notice section on April 1. The $10,000 winner will be announced in public notices on April 10.
