Prize patrol

At least one of our local radio stations (4TO) has a regular event known as the Prize Patrol. They have a vehicle which may appear anywhere in town and they give away merchandise to anyone who fronts up. I've stopped a couple of times over the years when I noticed the vehicle on my way past.

This morning was a bit different. I think that the Prize Patrol was waiting in our neighbourhood before setting up close to the beach. I went past the Patrol walking the dogs to the beach and was on my way back home when I was offered prizes. So I have flavoured milk, a loaf of bread, voucher for a local bakery, an ink pen and a couple of stickers for walking the dogs this morning. Since they weren't officially doing prizes yet, that was a nice little surprise.
