We want to know your favourite…

Reader's Choice contest all about you

So, what’s all this fuss about, in our paper, online and on social media?

It’s about you – the reader.

We want to know what you like.

And we’re giving away a great prize in the process.

The Comox Valley Record wants to know a few of your favourite things, so we have come up with a new contest: The 2015 Reader’s Choice Awards.

With more than 100 categories from which to place your votes, there’s a little bit of everything in the Reader’s Choice Awards.

It’s far more than “best sushi” and “best winery” although those are two options. In fact, there’s an entire section devoted solely to food and beverage. We cover everything from decor to distilleries; and, of course, any such polling process on Vancouver Island has to include seafood.

Have children? Tell us where the best kid-friendly restaurant is. Empty nester? You might have a favourite dining spot that doesn’t cater to kids. Either way, we’ve got you covered.

From patios to pizza; vegetarian fare to roast beef dinner – if you dine out, there’s sure to be a category on which you have an opinion.

We have the other retail services covered as well, in our “Shops and Services” section. Are you a fan of staining your body, or poking holes in it? You surely have a piercing/body art parlour you would recommend.

For the jocks, we have everything from sporting goods stores, to fitness centres; from bike stores to golf courses. Everyone has a favourite. We want to know what it is. There’s even a spot to enter “best place to hit a baseball.” (I’m thinking “right in the middle” will be a popular answer.)

We have a “People and Places” section, which gives you a chance to give a shout out to your favourite Record newspaper delivery person, or suggest a young person in the community you predict will someday become mayor for one of our municipalities.

There are even some notorious categories, just to add to the fun.

We want to know where the bumpiest road is. (Some would say that’s a Cumberland-specific category. Time will tell.)

Best place to skinny dip? (We bet it will be even more popular in 2016.)

We haven’t forgotten the romance. Where’s the best place to propose, locally? We want you to tell us.

The best part of all is that you are eligible to win a fantastic prize, just for taking the time to fill out the form.

One name will be randomly selected from all eligible entries to win a “stay and spa” for two at the palatial Old House Hotel and Spa.

Entries must have at least 10 selections. With a total of 145 options, you can enter 14 times without a single repeat category!

Enter now; enter often; enter by midnight on Sept. 25.

We will have a special section in October, revealing all the winning choices, as well as the grand prize winner of the stay at the Old House Hotel and Spa.

Terry Farrell is the editor of the Comox Valley Record
