Editor’s Note: Many, many thanks to everyone who entered, but as much as we wish we had free tickets for everyone, the contest is now closed. Our 50 winners can expect to be notified later today by email, and if all goes well, I’ll have the tickets in the mail by the end of the day. If you’re heading to Regina for the show, safe travels — and feel free to stop by our booth (No. 70610/70612) and pay us a visit. –– Dave Bedard, Editor, Daily News.
