Does anyone else have this problem?
Here as well.

It could be worse. The weekly blackout period allows a hard reset (even if you're late one day you can still enter on Monday morning and then you're blocked for another day anyways), so the once-per-24 isn't as bad as it could be.

Very true, and given that's it past 7:30PM PDT now and still no entry form, I think I will just have to roll it a day. (Assuming the entry form is there in the morning! :lol :)

Bah. According to Google Maps, Oliver is only 1hr35min from Kelowna, not the 2 hours outlined in the first clue. Osoyoos is much closer at 1hr55min. However, the official address for Black Hills Estate Winery is Oliver (geographically it's smack dab in between Osoyoos and Oliver)

So, I guess it should be Oliver.

Apologies for Osoyoos yesterday then folks - given the single clue at the time, it was the closer answer based on driving time.

Damn, so it wasn't Osoyoos?

Oliver's only 1h35m from Kelowna though (which contradicts yesterday's clue).

@ETCanada @FordCanada #MysteryEscape Clue #8 this town is only 1 hr 35 mins from Kelowna (according to Google maps). So Clue #7 was wrong!!
