Note that in the video, our talented host made a mistake. If you pay attention during the ticket drawing, he takes ticket #12, talks for a while, and then places that ticket at the bottom of the stack. He then resumed the drawing at #13. Then at the end he arrived at #12 and much confusion ensued. So the video ends kind of abruptly as we tried to figure out what was going on.

The tickets themselves are printed with the rank they won, so it doesn't really matter what order we announce them in. I regret the confusion caused but I didn't really want to go and redo the video since we had already done the whole thing!! Anyway, enjoy the video. Smiling

Wow! I don't care that I'm lucky 13! Two wins in a row just amazes me. I really really can't gripe anymore that the only thing I ever won was in high school when I got 500 S&H Green Stamps from the Piggley Wiggley. Putting that baby to rest. (unless I'm bored) <— just kidding.

Congrats to all the winners!

And major thanks to all of our generous vendors!
