A couple of weeks back I gave away a 2016 calendar created by “Tundra” artist Chad Carpenter. Or would have, if the winner hadn’t been from Canada.
Not that I have anything against our brethren to the north (or, in my case, to the east). It’s just that mailing the calendar would have been ridiculously expensive.
That’s why I note that winners from outside the United States will receive a gift card instead of mailable items. In this case, I sent the reader a $15 Amazon.ca card.
Which means, of course, that the calendar is still up for grabs. So is a $50 gift card of your choice from the Swagbucks shop. But first things first.
The response is always great whenever I give away anything from “Tundra.” And why not? Chad’s off-kilter work is syndicated in more than 600 publications worldwide. The guy is funny. So is his new movie (see below).

The deadline is 7 p.m. PDT Tuesday, May 26. If I don’t hear back from the winner by 7 p.m. PDT Wednesday, May 27, I’ll pull another name. And again: Due to the high cost of international shipping, winners from outside the U.S. will receive a gift card.
‘Moose’ heads south!
As noted in the original giveaway article, Chad and his brother (and a decent percentage of the town of Wasilla) have created a film called “Moose: The Movie.” Just wanted to let you know that it’s coming to the Lower 48 as well as to several more Alaska locations. As of today the screening schedule looks like this:
Aberdeen, Wash.: Starts May 29 at SouthShore Mall Cinema
Chehalis, Wash.: Starts May 29 at Midway Cinema
Eureka, Calif.: Now playing at Broadway Cinema
Grants Pass, Ore.: Now playing at SouthGate Cinema
Klamath Falls, Ore.: Now playing at Pelican Cinema
McMinnville, Ore.: Starts May 29 at McMinnville Cinema
North Bend, Ore.: Now playing at Pony Village Cinema
Tacoma: June 5-11, Blue Mouse Theater
Alaska readers can catch it four places:
Anchorage: Now playing at the Regal Tikahtnu
Fairbanks: Now playing at the Regal Goldstream
Homer: May 30 at the Homer Theatre
Wasilla: Playing through May 28 at The Valley Cinema
Hey, want a $50 gift card?
There’s still another week left to enter the Swagbucks $50 gift card giveaway. In order to enter you must:
- Be a Swagbucks member (if you aren’t, hope you’ll use my referral link to join)
- Earn at least 25 Swag Bucks (SBs) before 7 p.m. Friday, May 29
- Leave a comment on the original post, signed with your Swagbucks user name, explaining what card you’d cash in for and why.
In this particular giveaway you can enter only once. Be sure to do it before the deadline noted above, and be sure to include your Swagbucks user name. A couple of people forgot and had to come back and add that info.
Seriously: You can’t win unless there’s a way to confirm you earned the requisite 25 SBs, and the only way to do that is through your user name.
I love gift-card giveaways. Thanks to Swagbucks for sponsoring this one.
