The Raffle


For those of you not familiar with this, it is a raffle held annually in conjunction with
the gathering of Rusties, Zumans, Les Gens Ordinaire, German Rust Ring,
and anyone else wishing  to "come on down" to the redwood forest of CA.
Last year, there was approx $1100 raised through the kindness and caring shown.

The chances  can also be purchased sans attendance via mail
  Raffle donations, both cash and prizes, are graciously
  accepted. All money raised goes to The Bridge School.  An example
  of a prize would be anything that is Neil/CSN related such as an old vinyl
  record, memorbelia,  a promise of a show from your list, or any other
  thing that you care to donate which includes non Neil music as well. 

This raffle is a fun thing each year. 
Anyone not knowing what The Bridge School is, it is the school
  that Neil and Pegi Young founded. The school works with individuals with
severe communicative and physical disabilities. Through modern technology
 the school helps it's students to achieve their full potential.

About Us 
This is the seventh annual International Rust Fest.
  We attend the Bridge School Benefit as a group. It is held at
Shoreline Amphitheater in Shoreline, CA.
 
 
  The Rules
  The rules are few and simple:
 
  You need not be present to win. Participation by non-attendees   is encouraged!
 
  The cost of each chance to win is $1.
 
  Volume discount: 12 chances for $10
 
  The drawing will be held at IRFY2K3. The winners will be posted to
  Rust and Human Highway as soon as possible following the event.
 
  The deadline for advance purchases, by mail, is 15 Oct 2003 
  (your stubs will be put in an envelope and babysat at IRF)
 
  Any $$$ received here, after IRF, will go into the IRF raffle fund.
  Chances may be purchased at IRFY2K3 right up until the time of the drawing.
 
  In the past six years, people throw away their ticket stubs after the
raffle is over. I am writing to tell everyone who has bought/will buy tickets
NOT to throw away their stubs.

******* There is a drawing for the grand

*returnable each yr by the present winner* prize. 

Last yr, Paul Stevens won the privilege of
keeping this etched MORE BARN mirror.  He took the Rustie Pledge to
safely return it to IRF this year.   Paul will draw the winning ticket for it
as well as administer the pledge to the winner.  Paul didn't know this but now he does ;-^
 
  Tickets will be predawn some before dinner and some after dinner.
Prizes with winning #'s will be available at Hilltop at the prize table to the left of the top of the stairs.
It is your responsibility to take the time to read the numbers and see if you won.
If you are a winner, you may pick up your prize at the prize table during the
evening. Also those of you who are bringing your  prize donation, please drop
it at the registration table. See instructions below.  It will make things easier.  
People not in attendance, who donated goods, like to know who won. 
 
  *******TWO NOTES THIS YEAR ****** 

First, if you are donating a prize or prizes,
( and you are NOT attending IRF/BSB), you must first let me know
  what you are donating in order for me to index and label it. I have also decided
that it is too difficult to accept prizes that are *dumped* on the table the day of the
raffle.  The prizes are appreciated but if you do not tell me in advance what you are
donating, it makes too much extra work to index and label on the day of the raffle.
Once that you tell me what you are bringing, I will assign you a number. Please
have your prize labeled with that number when you bring it to IRF or send the prize to Linda.
 

**** If you wish to remain anonymous as a donor, please let me know that too.
If you can't attend the IRF but want to participate in the raffle (or if you
just want to purchase your chances ahead of time), send all cash
contributions to:
 
  Kathy Popple
  13 Gardner St
  Whitesboro NY 13492
 
  Secondly, Linda Nadolski has so graciously offered to accept non cash raffle
  donations.  She has offered to accept these packages due to the
  fact that I fly out.  It makes it difficult for me to bring them with me.It
will make things easier for Linda if you clearly write " IRFY2K3
  Prize" on your package as well as your assigned #  ..Please, again,  let me
know what your donation will be so that I can record it and give you a number
  Here is her addy:
 
Linda Nadolski
4111 Jackpine Rd
Shingle Springs , CA 95682
 
  Thank you all in advance
  Peace, Music, and IRFY2K3
