pix_blueball (1K) MONTHLY SPRINT DRAWING

ITEM (NUMBER): Any available numbered item from the pictures at the top of this page. (1 per month)

HOW AWARDED: By random drawing among eligible participating members in our sprints. The winner can choose any available item from the pictures at the top of this page. Only the ones without a callsign listed are still available. A member can only win one monthly sprint drawing. After that they become ineligible for further sprint drawings. The winner will be notified via email shortly after the sprint and will have until the end of that month to make their choice or to turn down the prize. If someone doesn't reply at all by that time, they will become ineligible for all future sprint drawings. That month's sprint will then simply have no winner and be marked as such. There will no longer be any replacement drawings as there once were.
