6 KATHERINE TIMES, WEDNESDAY MARCH 12 2014 www.katherinetimes.com.au Melbourne man Cam Winn is a winner in many ways - and thats not only because of his name. The 33-year-old mechanic, who moved to Katherine with his partner last month, has won the second Katherine Times fuel voucher, at a value of $500. Im pretty stoked, the new Katherine resident said. We collected coupons from the paper, but I didnt get around to enter them until the very last day. My partner Kate didnt believe it when I told her we had won. Mr Winn said the couple was pretty happy about the fuel voucher - which will help them with their travel plans. We like to go on adventures on the weekends, camping and fishing, or visiting friends in Darwin. The voucher is great as we want to go to the Douglas River soon, And I still have my motorbike in Melbourne which I want to bring up to Katherine. Mr Winn said the couple would fill their cars fuel tank at least once a fortnight and winning the fuel voucher was fantastic.
