"HEAR YE…HEAR YE!!!" It’s time for another “Winter Giveaway”, this one called “BAKEDBEANZ BONANZA w/ A FEW OTHERS”. Not “catchy”, I know, but hopefully, it’ll “grow on ya!!”
This will be on a “FIRST COME SIGN UP BASIS”, at the designated time, on the Starting Date. Following are the Rules of the Road: A Member must have been a member of OG for 30 Days prior to Event. (If one doesn’t qualify, there’ll be another in the Spring.)
There will NOT be a “Wiki Listing”, too many chance(s) for “overwrites”, “bumping”, etc.
At the designated Start Time, simply type/enter “I want to enter” (NO QUOTATION MARKS) That satisfies the “10 Character Rule”
When/IF the number of Sign Ups have reached FIFTY/50, @G-paS will “PAUSE” the Listing to make sure all is in “Order”. If it is, she’ll open it back up for TEN/10 more Entrants, for a TOTAL of SIXTY/60 Participants.
AFTER the SIGN UP LISTING is finalized, she will THEN list the NINTY/90 Strains/Varieties to be available. At the Designated Start Time, Entrants can THEN make their CHOICE…ONE CHOICE, NO SUBSTITUTING, NO CHANGES!!!
If you request a Strain/Variety ALREADY selected, you will be eliminated!! It would behoove participants to follow the Thread, observe what has been previously selected and, select accordingly. Simply enter/type “I choose NR 1”, etc. I will give a “Like” to Valid Selections. If I run out of “Likes”, I will Reply with a " "
It will get chaotic/hectic. I WON’T be entertaining any queries concerning Breeders, Companies, etc. Some of the generous Donors didn’t want any acknowledgement, so if anyone recognize their creations, feel free to comment, if desired.
Upon Conclusion, I will request “Personals/Deets” via PM. As previously, I’ll request in Groups of 20 - 25. They will be dispatched by Greeting Card Envelops, Coin Flip w/Hose Washer, stamped “Non-Machinable”, UNTRACKED. I’m serviced by a small, 1-Window Post Office. I’ll begin the Mailings AFTER THE NEW YEAR to avoid the Holiday Rush.
The Giveaway will begin 16 Dec/10 O’clock AM EST (1000 Hours) for Signup. @G-Pas is overseeing the process. She has proven INVALUABLE in the Past, keeps everything organized, cracks the Whip (“OUCH!!”) when required.
THANKS for your attention, EVERYONE. We will return shortly to Regular Programming.
SPECIAL NOTE!!: Upon reaching a TOTAL of 60 Participants, @G-Pas will post the Strains/Varieties List. AFTER it is posted, the Giveaway will START Two/2 Hours LATER. I think that will allow everyone enough time to review the List. SS/BW…mister
