Don't hesitate. Be sure to get your Not-A-Raffle-Raffle tickets now. As Dave said, 'The ticket buying window is open now and will close on March 22 at 7:00pm Central time.'

If any of y'all need acorns, especially new members, don't be shy — speak up. There are a number of members, myself included, who are shaking the old oak tree and tossing acorns. Trust me. Compared to the squirrels who camp out in my Red Oaks and like to aim for my head with some major acorns, we'll be gentle when we toss acorns.

And speak up if you aren't sure how this whole thing works.

Hilarious! Hilarious! Sounds like those Red Oak squatters might be relatives of the squirrels who taunt my dogs.
It’s okay to not know all the answers.

Must be related to ones I had evicted from my attic.

I never have been in a raffle never had but 5 acorns in my account since becoming a member. That's must be the reason I have no badges ether.
