    Folks,

    The raffle for February/March is coming soon. This will be a good one!

    The cost this month will be $10 to enter as the prize is a bit more substantial.

    So, what is it? Pictures and details will be posted soon. For now, why not enter sight unseen? ;):D(y)

    The "Support Frisco.org" link at the top of the page and in your profile box will get you there!

    Sorry, I've got nothing on that. :(

    I think it's safe to say that it is an authentic and Sterling Silver.

    Railroad silverware is normally silverplated as if it was sterling (92.5 %) silver both the initial cost and the the loss rates would be huge.

    Going a little slow here guys. No one has bought a ticket for ten days so we are going to bump the post up.

    Is it possible for us to make multiple entries?

    Do you mean beyond the options listed? I'm sure we can come up with something.

    I would be willing to make multiple entries in order to raise more funds. Of course I wouldn't mind an increased chance of winning either. :)

    These two names show the list of names of ticket buyers. I had to use two screenshots due to the scroll bar on the right. The names were entered in the order in which the tickets were purchased.

    Congratulations! @magistrate (Robert) is the winner!

    Thank you everyone that bought a ticket. You are supporting your website when you do.

    I have one more raffle coming up and will announce it soon. I am going to be doing some traveling soon so I will have to decide when to start it.

    Thanks again folks.
