(If you don't get the email, go to www.bisslist.com and sign up already!)


If the calendar listings below don't go all the way through to 5/18, then look for a link at the bottom that says "[Message clipped]  View entire message" or the link at the top that says "Having trouble viewing this email? Click here


Wondering how to *WIN TICKETS*? Read below in the bright yellow letters where it says "HOW TO WIN TICKETS". Here are a few hints...
  • We like to see new names submitting entries so stop saying you never win anything and just try
  • it's a contest, so emailing to ask if we have picked a winner before you enter to win is not a contest entry
  • Stating the fact that you want to win is also not a contest entry
  • Effort counts
  • The more you spread the word, the more you win!
