    Default Winners of the Fundraiser Contest

    First - thanks to all those who participated!! This forum is a great place for us to share and learn and each of us benefits from it in many ways. I know how hard BD and LJA work to keep it going. Your contributions will make a difference!!





    I wanted this to be completely impartial.

    I took the names and wrote each on a slip of paper.

    The slips were folded and placed in the official coffee pot holder.

    Then I mixed the pieces around for a minute, and then dumped them into a paper sack.

    I shook up the sack and then drew 3 slips.

    1st slip for $25,

    2nd for $50

    and 3rd for $75....



    The winners are:







    $25 ... Tmai

    $50 ... desertgal

    $75 ... bench72 (aka Tim, aka PoP) thats in US dollars, too!



    Congratulations!!!! you should have a PM from me...

    Moi aussi!!!
    Congrats to the weinners!!!

    But I have a question. Was my name in the drawing too? When you use Paypal, especially if it is for transfering money from your checking account to a service provider/vendor, it could take many days! Hehheeee ...

    Oh...wait, Hoa! I see...

    ...yes, that's a second folded piece of paper behind the official coffee pot holder. Just beside mine. Let me see...I can almost make out the name...

    ...yup - it's yours. At least I have some company.

    hmmm....my money was sent instantly, no slow echecks, nothing. I just make sure my mom's credit card is on there for backup. For some reason when my credit card used for backup also takes a very long time, maybe because my card limit is very low?
    I'm not lucky with draws so I knew I wasn't gonna win or was mine behind the coffee cup
