but I'm sure this will be an annual event now. We had a blast!
We bought two extra tickets -
we checked out the Silent Auction items (and started the bids going =)
We watched one of the Dad's push this Cheers cart around boosting tickets sales, lol
We played a few 'tips' -
And had quite a few holders quite a few times!
Finally winning $50 from one of them.
We listened for our numbers to be eliminated or win a prize (and be eliminated)
we even one four tickets to the Seven Springs Wing and Rib fest - but ended up swapping them out for this, LOVE it...
Then we won a $25 Pappa Johns gift card - but ended up swapping that out for Applebees - Love the trading idea.
We did finally get eliminated but not until there was less than 60 remaining. Not too bad for our first time and only 4 tickets out of 400. I didn't understand how it worked but the ten remaining numbers came up front -
and it all came down to one winner. It was interesting though that as they eliminated, the remaining could chose to split or not. When it was down to 2 or 3, they opted to split. Pretty fun to be a part of this awesome event.
Oh and the silent auction items? Well, we won two -
A cute basket filled with gift cards - and to some of our fav places...
A one day course at BSR (Summit Point Raceway) for Accident Avoidance Highway Safety. Invaluable training in how to handle the emergency highway situations that just precede accidents - skidding, off road recovery, swerving to avoid objects, etc. Hands-on training in normal cars, on real roads at highway speeds. I was so excited. I wanted to send Chase and Cierra through this but it was a just a little too expensive. Now we have this certificate and Ronnie has one already so they BOTH get to go. Awesome!
I'd say it was a pretty fun night with lots of good prizes and LOTS of money to support the Tsunami Softball team. Love that!
