Can you believe it is almost time to draw our winner?? This has been so much fun for me!!
Here is the plan-I will stop accepting entries at midnight on February 3rd. I will be in bed by then, so when I get up on Saturday, February 4th, I will check my email to see if anyone entered by the deadline. If there is a valid entry I will enter their name, then do the drawing. I am going to video tape the drawing, but I am not going to post the video with the winner because some people have emailed and did not want their name revealed. I am hoping that the winner will let us all share in her journey and let me blog about it, but I did state that there were no strings attached. This winner could win the prize, collect and ride off into the sunset. In keeping my word, I will draw the name, notify the winner and see what she says about letting me, let everyone know. The only exception is for those of you that left a comment on the blog with no way for me to contact you, if you win, I will have to post your “screen” name in order to notify you.
Once I notify the winner, she will then contact each of the additional prize donors and work out how to collect her goods. A couple of donors have contacted me and we have already worked out a system such as an electric gift certificate from GunGoddess.com.
I will do the drawing at 8am on Saturday, February 4th and promptly notify the winner by email. As soon as she gets back to me, I will let you all know.
I honestly wish I could hand out more training prizes. Each one of you are remarkable to take this step forward and I pray that you will find a way to get trained this year regardless of the outcome of this Give-A-Way.
GOOD LUCK TO EVERYONE!!!!!!!
P.S….As I have already mentioned I thought this would be a little 20 person thing, easy peasy. It grew to over 200, which thrills me to no end, except that I was unprepared and therefore, didn’t set this up properly. I am hoping to make this an annual event(I can not promise any additional prizes, but I would like to offer the training to one lady every year until, hopefully, forever:) and trust me I will make many changes. One being I will assign everyone a number next time, draw the number, post the number and that way, everyone will know right away, but can still be anonymous if they so choose.
