Please reply to me privately (as well as via post for other people) because I'm having a hard time getting BYC notifications and the threads I follow are running at warp speed. ty!
Also, regarding the live chicks/etc that are donated, do you have to be there in person to win those or are they shipped fm origin? I started reading and wasn't paying attention to the dates and realized this is very very soon! Sadly, I may only be able to purchase tickets. :(
"Donations" can always be sent via paypal to email@example.com... it's just that Paypal considers purchasing raffle tickets as gambling which is against their policies. My wife has bought a number of raffle tickets as gifts for byc members though.......
The live chicks donated are going to be given away at the event to 4H kids to raise for the fair... All the prizes in the raffle go to winners.. I have the incubator, gift certificates and non egg prizes and will ship those as needed. All the hatching eggs will be shipped directly to the winners by the generous donors so as to maximize hatchability..
The event is Saturday May 5th and everyone is welcome to attend... however, if you can't come, please feel free to purchase raffle tickets as you do not have to be present to win!!!!
