    Folks,

    After the success of our free gift fundraiser, we are going to run another small one through January 31.

    I have acquired a Tony Howe print which will be the prize:

    You may register for a drawing (to be secretly conducted in the Maine woods) on February 1 by donating $5. That will automatically enter you. If you win, the print will be mailed to you free of charge.

    To register for this raffle, go here http://frisco.org/shipit/index.php?account/upgrades and select "January 2016 Raffle."

    Based on the number of people here, everyone will have a great chance of winning.

    Thanks!

    Charlie

    We've sold two tickets so far guys. The odds here are a lot better than tonight's Powerball drawing!

    With 7 people in the odds are good but are you losing money on this drawing? In other words how many people do you need to break even?

    I thought there would have been hundreds for this.

    I think a lot of folks already have this picture in their collections. But, for $5 it's a good way to support the site and maybe get a prize. We'll be doing this again next month for another treasure!

    Guys, I have had a couple of unexpected very busy days. I will do the drawing tomorrow night and announce a winner. Plus, I have another GREAT raffle to announce for this month!

    Ok, here's the winner!

    First, here's how I did the drawing: I searched for a webpage to randomize input and found one. You place every name on a line, hit the button and it randomizes. For this purpose I put all entrants names on a line (in the order received), hit the button and the first person's name that appeared at the top was the winner:

    @tmfrisco is the winner.

    I will check PayPal for a shipping address and get it right out.

    Thank you to everyone that entered! We have another great one coming this month so stay tuned!
