PLEASE SEE RAFFLE INFO BELOW!!!
Thanks to our generous, supportive Sponsors, fundraising
Raffle prizes thus far are:
The cost of this NA-178 activation may run as high as $10,000 (U.S. Funds) due to the
necessity of helicopter transportation for all aspects of the Cooperative Work Agreement
with the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service.
In order to assist our fundraising, for each $20 (or more)
increment donation (whether in advance or with a QSL card), your
callsign will go onto a special NA-178 Raffle slip. This means
a donation of $40 will yield TWO Raffle slips, $100 yields FIVE
Raffle slips, etc. Advance Donations can be conveniently made
via PayPal (see below).
At the end of our planned NA-178 trip presentation at the IOTA
Dinner during the annual Visalia DX Convention on 4/21/06, we
will have the raffle drawing for all
donated prizes. Winners need not be present, as we will ship
to out-of-area prize winners. (Duty may apply to International
shipments on the recipient's end however,
and will be the responsiblity of the winner). Some prizes may
be downloadable via the Internet. Raffle participants must be
at least 21 years of age. NOTE:
For donations to qualify for any Raffle slip(s), they
MUST BE RECEIVED NO LATER THAN 3/31/06
(whether via mail with or without QSLs, PayPal, Pony Express
or any other means). This is necessary to insure accurate and
complete administrative processing *before* Visalia. We may, or may not,
offer additional Raffle slip(s) for direct purchase at the IOTA dinner. Unfortunately,
donations are NOT tax-deductible (we hope the NA-178 Raffle will help mitigate this).
Raffle Winner Callsigns will be posted on our website after the Visalia Convention.
ADDITIONAL IMPORTANT INFO:
All QSLs will be processed by N6AWD on a "first in, first out" basis as received.
Donations are NOT required to receive a QSL
card for a bona fide QSO in the log.
