What are The ODDS

Good Morning everyone
I need to dig me out some warm clothing, they are saying
our temps will plummet starting this evening
So where did I put my Sweats at? SIGH
And DARN it I do not want to put my Flip Flops away !! LOL


Do you get excited about raffles
I remember as a child going to fall festivals and 
getting tickets to do stuff, games, etc.
I have purchased so many raffle tickets 
recently hubby got one for something ??
And the benefit of it was to help out a volunteer fire department?

So what are the odds at winning something
as defined  ODDS are the likelihood or probability of something happening
The ratio of chances in the number of people participating
A handicap or advantage

Why this post
WELL...........I am loving some of the emails, comments on this BIG GIVEAWAY
I have some entries that are in for 50 chances LOL!!!!

I wanted to make this giveaway FUN!!!!!!!!!!
I know that when I sign up for a raffle I look at the Big Hopper
and think hmmm, my tiny piece of paper in the big thing
What are the ODDS????
But then the purpose of the raffle it seems is always to help
out some organization so I really do not care if I win or not!
NOW when it comes to prizes I always think WOW the odds could be so 
much better I need more pieces of paper in that big old drum

THERE are 24 prizes 24!!!! WINNERS well 23 someone could 
possibly win twice on the $20.00 gift certificate
as of now there are 53 signed up
Think about that *you can only win one prize*!!!
So there can be MANY many entries and your odds are still GREAT 
so just comment if that is all you have time to do 
you can choose your odds on winning
And for some that may be one chance and that is fine too
One time I was with Hubbies cousin and she had one ticket in a hopper
of MANY and I be darned she got her name drawn out
She got to go up and play a big game to win MONEY
So one time is plenty to enter, sometimes the that is all it takes

The method I will use on this giveaway is this
** I have a file set up with all of the comments**
Say Sue does 24 and she is the first one to sign up
Well she gets numbers 1 through 24
And the list goes on
Then when it is time to choose winners
I will contact each gal *donating* and have them give me 10 numbers each between the numbers 1 and how
many entries there are, when I draw a winner if I draw her number again
She will not win twice on prizes
*darn it I hit publish LOL I am editing here MORE COFFEE perhaps?*
I will have the 240 numbers in a RUSTY *you knew that way coming* ole bucket
and that is what I will draw the winners from is the numbers I have
then I will match the numbers up to the entries

But when it comes time to do the drawing on the gift certificate
she can win that if I draw her number out again
*make sense?*
