Share your New Year's Eve memories with The Coast
Hurry and send in your most memorable New Year's Eve story.
Update December 28, 2010:The contest is closed, and Pamela Gray won the bottle of Taittinger in the random draw from all the entries. Congratulations Pamela and thanks to everyone for entering. The booze. The food. The stress. The fun. We've all been there, which is we all love New Year's Eve stories. Good, bad or getting lucky, The Coast wants to hear about your most memorable NYE, and by sharing you'll be entered in a draw for a bottle of Taittinger Champage from Bishop's Cellar.

Email your story to and you'll automatically be entered in the champagne draw. All stories become property of The Coast, and the best ones will be collected online and printed in our Last-minute New Year's Eve Planner issue on December 30. The deadline for stories is 4pm Thursday, December 23, so hurry and send yours in.

Fine print: The random draw prize is a bottle of Taittinger champagne that retails for around $80, kindly provided by Bishop's Cellar, no cash value. Draw date is December 23 at 4:30pm, winner will be contacted by email. Since your story may be published, you should sign it with a pseudonym if your real name needs protection. Stories of drunken debauchery welcome, eye-witness accounts from the 2008 Cunard Centre debacle extra welcome.
