Winners announced below in This Post

HAPPY 5TH BIRTHDAY TO US!

It's time for another Donation Drawing! This isn't a contest, and it isn't a raffle.
It's a simple way to show your support for the site during our Birthday Bash!

$25 - Your name in the hat.
$50 - Your name in the hat and a commemorative coffee mug.
MUGS ARE GONE

PayPal no longer accepted. See THIS POST

Contact me via PM for an alternate means of getting your donation to us.

(OR Check or money order by 2/28/09 to: Jeff Brown, 23618 Concord Dr., Westlake, OH 44145)[/SIZE]

PLEASE! Include your member name with your money order!!!

During February 2009, every donation of $25 or more puts your name in a drawing for one the great prizes listed below. LOTS more great and valuable prizes will be added throughout the month.

A larger donation does not increase your chance of winning, however, if you donate $50 or more, I'll also send you a limited edition (only 80 are available!) 5th anniversary coffee mug. (Shipping is on me, but if you are outside the US and want to help with that, THANKS!)

Here's how it works. At the end of the month, slips of paper with the names of all members who donated will go in a bag. I will then draw the names one at a time and award the prizes in the sequence they are shown in this post. There isn't a "grand prize" -- it just might happen that the most expensive prize is the 8th or 12th awarded.

Here are the donation drawing prizes!​

1 set of "Texas Worthless Wood Blanks"™ From TurnTex Woodworks $90 value
(1 each of Mescalbean, Agarita, Escarpment Cherry, Hill Country Ironwood, Escarpment Live Oak, Redbud)

Donation Drawing Plans:

The cutoff for donations is midnight, Friday Feb 27.

I will probably do the drawing sometime on March 1. I'll post the results and as usual the thrilling video of me pulling slips of paper out of a bag.

At this moment, all donations have been acknowledged by either email or PM. If you have made a donation and you are positive you have not received a confirmation from me personally, PM me. (NOTE: Please be reasonably sure you have not received my acknowledgment before you tell me you have not. Last year when I posted this I got a lot of "just checking" or "oh yeah, now I remember" and it takes time for me to go back and check the spreadsheet, write you back, etc. )

Finally, thank you all for your generous financial support!
