Last becomes first in The Mill Casino’s Holiday Camaro Giveaway

Casino, Contests Comments Off

There is a saying that ninety percent of life is just showing up. That certainly was the case for Kay, a Coos Bay resident who became the winner of a brand new Chevrolet Camaro over the weekend in the Holiday Camaro Giveaway at The Mill Casino • Hotel.

On Sunday, Dec. 19, the grand prize drawing was held and 15 weekly winners would have an opportunity to win a beautiful red Camaro that had been on display since early November. But at the time of the drawing, two participants were not present.

Several entries were selected to fill the 14th and 15th places in the grand prize drawing. Kay was on hand to accept the 15th and final spot.

Contestants then picked from 15 Christmas stockings that contained various prizes including the Camaro. Being the last one selected meant that Kay would get the final stocking. “I got the one no one else wanted,” Kay said, “the orphan stocking.”

The excitement grew as each of the first 13 stockings was opened. Then it came down to the final two. “When the lady next to me opened hers and saw that it was a $300 prize, I was stunned,” Kay said. “I never expected anything like this.”

But that’s not the end of this Christmas tale. Kay has a daughter who has fought through several of life’s difficulties. She currently is working at a job through AmeriCorps while completing her studies at Umpqua Community College. And she is desperately in need of improved transportation. Kay said the new car will go to her.

“There is a beautiful car sitting in my garage waiting for my daughter to come home for Christmas,” Kay said. “I can’t wait to see her face when I open the door.”

Tips for Enjoying Winter in Your RV on the Oregon Coast!!

RV Park Comments Off

The Oregon Coast offers visitors majestic views and lots to do throughout the year, and the Winter season is no exception. For RV enthusiasts, this is a magical time to come. With tranquil views of the water as a backdrop, our RV Park is an ideal spot to experience the rustic beauty of the Oregon Coast in the Winter time.  And if you need to get out, you are just steps away from casino games, entertainment and great restaurants!  Here are some tips from The Mill Casino RV Park staff to make your winter RV experience a comfortable one!

1. Check Road Conditions. When planning a trip to the coast during the cold/rainy season, always keep up on the road conditions between your starting place and your destination. The Oregon Department of Transportation provides helpful information and is a great resource to check before heading on your adventure.  Their toll-free number 1-800-977-6368.

2. Take special care of your water lines. When reaching your destination, be aware of possible freezing temperatures and wrap water lines with insulation to prevent them from freezing. Also, if you know you are going to be leaving your RV in a park site for more than 12 hours, it’s a good rule of thumb to disconnect your water lines, emptying the lines in the process so they will be clear and ready to use when you return.

3. Contact the RV park prior to departure. The Mill Casino RV Park is a full service RV Park that is open year round so when planning your trip, always check ahead to see that your destination is available during the dates of your journey. Some RV facilities such as county and state parks can close during the winter months so calling ahead or accessing websites for information is advisable.

4. Watch weather conditions closely. The South Coast is a wonderful place to RV in the winter as the storms make for spectacular wave watching and will sometimes cause shipwrecks and other interesting finds to be uncovered along the beaches. Always use caution on the beach – it’s beautiful but can be dangerous under some weather conditions.

5. Prepare for Ice. When travelling in an RV on the South Coast, it’s always prudent to have a good de-icer solution handy for windshields; fresh water, grey water and black water fixtures as ice can build up quickly depending on weather conditions. Preparedness is always good when travelling in the winter months.

6.  Stick to the Roads More Traveled. When traveling in the winter months to the Oregon Coast it is always best to stay on well traveled roads and highways, you should never take mountain passes that you are unfamiliar with as these roads can be treacherous.

7.  Go Crabbing! There are a lot of fun out door things to do on the Oregon Coast during the winter months, crabbing season is great between December and February so you might want to pack your crab ring if you have one.  You can always check with some of our local tackle and marine supplies stores who can rent one to you and help guide you.  Check  Oregon’s Adventure Coast for more tips and resources.

8.  Walk along the beach. You never know what treasures you may find on an Oregon Coast beach following a winter storm; just remember to pack a lot of warm clothing as it does get very wet and windy here!
