Have you purchased your NELL raffle tickets? Any NELL member can sell them to you. $5 each or purchase 6 @ $25.00!

I'm happy to report that ticket sales are going good for the New England Lighthouse Lovers 10th Anniversary Raffle. Please don't miss your chance to purchase these tickets.

A ticket gives you a chance to win a week's stay at Race Point Lighthouse on Cape Cod or a week on the Outer Banks of North Carolina where you can visit the Hatteras, Ocracoke, Bodie and Currituck lighthouses during your stay.

Or, you could win a four day lighthouse cruise along the coast of Maine on the Schooner Mary Day, or choose a week at any of these destinations:
Aruba, St.Martin, Hawaii, Cancun, Puerta Vallarta, or Disney Area, FL.

How does a weekend on Nantucket staying at the beautiful Nantucket Inn sound to you?

You might even win a stay in the Assistant Keeper's dwelling at the remote Thacher Island lighthouse where you would be transported by boat to the island to live like the keepers did for a weekend.

See the first post in this thread for complete information on the drawing, or see our 1/2 page ad in the current issue of Lighthouse Digest. Drawing will be held at NELL's fall meeting, October 14th but you do not need to be present to win.

Thanks to everyone here at the Collector Forums who has responded already. If you missed the first notice, remember tickets can be purchased from any NELL member.

Proceeds to benefit New England lighthouse preservation through NELL, a chapter of the American Lighthouse Foundation.

Remember- I have as many tickets as you want or need. I've already sold some to HLCF members.

We won't run out - we can always print more.

Buy early and often- it's for a good cause and the prizes are great in this raffle.

Thanks for your attention- and in some cases participation. laugh

Judy--So, if I'm correct (an unlikely event), the first winner has their choice of any of the prizes, the second of any of those remaining, etc. etc. There are at least two that I must have. What a great grouping of choices! Congrats! Thank you for reminding us...Frank

Frank,

You record is still intact- you are incorrect.

The first ticket pulled will win the first prize listed, the second ticket pulled will win the second prize listed and so on. I also have been told that there is nothing to stop the winners from making trades amongst themselves.

I was told the drawing was being done this way to streamline the process- it could take a very long time to contact people give them a choice and move on to the next person.

Thanks Dennis for your input. I need to adjust a bit of what you've said ever so slightly.

The drawing will take place at NELL's Fall meeting as publisized. The first ticket drawn will win the 6th prize on the list. The second will win the 5th on the list and so on.

The reason for doing the drawing this way is that tickets have been sold to many folks from all over and only a handfull of those will be in attendance during the drawing (those members attending the Fall meeting).

We advertised that one does not need to be present to win.

Thanks so much, Frank & Dennis for your posting and enthusiasm. I know you both have been out there hard at work selling tickets. Great job!

Good luck to all participants. Also remember,there's still time to purchase tickets!

Judy

So, Judy, if some other lucky dog wins the Race Point week, how long will it be before he/she is informed? (So I can call them too to bargain!).
Hope YOU and NELL and lighthouse preservation are wildly successful....Frank

I trust Carolyn won't trade Frank either! whistling

Frank, in answer to your question, if winners drawn at the meeting are not present, they will be notified by phone as soon after the meeting as we can do that. The winner of each destination prize will then be put in touch with the donor of that prize to work out their vacation time in 2008.

Good Luck to All Participating! Still time to buy some last minute chances...
