    It seems entirely likely that you (and the other paying participants) are more interested in the outcome than they are [​IMG]

    I see on their FB page where someone left a message asking... but no response. Nothing on the "new" website either.

    This is NOT making me wanna sign back up OR send money for raffle tickets in the future [​IMG]

    agree, not much info. was put out there about this raffle to begin with, reason I never bought any tickets.
    If it weren't for MinxFox adding some info. here ( much thanks go out to her ) then most of us would have known very little about some important details...surely she's not the only UPA member who checks in here from time to time ?

    I asked Loretta last night about what is going on. She sent the numbers to another member to draw one with a computer, then the number is matched up with her list. We should know today who won.

    So it sounds like she didn't exactly answer your question about what is going on and why the delay? [​IMG]

    Well I guess not, but she did tell me what I wanted to know. We should know today.

    They must be using an abacus 'stead of a computer, and mailing in the results in via pea-mail.... whatever it is gets lost in the delivery by pea-brained peafowl [​IMG]

    Even my wheezing, over-utilized and under-powered laptop works better than what's happening with this auction-thingy.

    Although I notice other stuff is still going up on their Facebook page. Huh.

    I received an email today from the UPA with my raffle number. Apparently, they are drawing numbers tomorrow.
