    That might be so but you obviously contacted someone and let them know so you could be entered.

    Jon, I am glad you said something. We will get this figured out and I would rather discuss it now than have a bunch of butt hurt people.

    Chris and Scotty and I have a PM going and will have a solution. Please be patient and wait for us to figure this out.

    I have to step back out to pick up Tamara and Elliott from their Theatre date and take them for supper.

    We will get this all straight and I hope no one will be too upset.

    Let me say this, the first 15 names drawn are 100% correct and valid. When Chris did the drawing he put a ticket in for each of the anonymous donations so the odds of any name being drawn are and were correct.

    We are now working behind the scenes on a strategy for identifying the anonymous donors and make sure their entries or not only in but able to be identified as winners.

    We are going to be as open as we can and explain everything as we go but some of these discussions have to happen in private amongst a smaller group or ideas and suggestions can get lost in all the chatter.

    Look at us now, almost 5 pages of a NO BANTER thread and we only have one prize selection...

    @NCFarmboy is next pick, if I'm not mistaken. Anyone have a carrier pigeon headed that way?

    My 2 cents if he donated and didnt get his name in drawing
    Then add his name and redraw
    They do it for state lotterys
    Its the right thing to do

    Everyone is accounted for. I can't help that some didn't let names. I have anonymous donations of all amounts. Should I give bob 200 when he donated 10 and give Tim 10 when he donated 300? Like I said I'm not perfect but if you donated and left a name I did my best to keep it straight. This is the last time I'll ever do this you'd think people would be more worried about helping out than winning. When this is over I'm taking the @T.Roller apoarch and leaving.

    I am sincerely sorry that I started this derail and never meant any of it as an attack against anyone. My original question was to ask if that picture was a definite list of all entrants, or a fun example to promote excitement (and perhaps had more pieces of paper already cut up an in the hat, or underneath the pages shown). I tried guarding my language (said, "not trying to be 'that' guy"), but did not do a good job of it and it was taken in a different meaning initially, though that member and I have, I believe, made good on that with no hard feelings.

    The end goal is money for the cause, not more saws, and I am sorry that I have put a bad taste in some people's mouths. Not my intention, but I'll own that it's happened and do my part to make it stop. If my name is drawn after whatever happens with the anonymous donations stuff is settled, I forfeit all claim to any and all prizes. Just go ahead to the next name. I will also go radio silence here to avoid being a distraction.

    I hope anyone on here with whom I've interacted with in the past will note that I've never been one to kick a hornet's nest nor stir up *s-word. I don't like drama and didn't mean to smear it on the walls here. I will watch quietly and enjoy (just like I have in all the other raffles) guys getting fun toys like Christmas morning, and it will be almost as cool as seeing $10k raised for a great cause. Thank you for your understanding, and please now carry on.

    First let me apologize, i was out doing tree removals all day, so I'm just now catching uo with this stuff....We all need to take a step back, fellas. I was worried that a train wreck would ensue, but at the end of the day, we did this to help out a member and their family. That, and that alone, is why I donated.

    I wanna see everyone that donated and wishing to have an entry get a chance, but witout a comment with a screen name on the GFM, it's nearly impossible to figure out the anonymous donations.......

    This is the first time (and probably the last) that I'll run a GFM, I hate seeing people get upset. The only reason I did the GFM is because I consider Rodney and his family my extended family, I was there when Shemane got hurt and believe me it hit me to the core. I felt horrible for Rod and Shemane, I've got kids her age too.....

    At any rate, let's try to get this hashed out and have fun with it.

    There were a couple prizes I was excited about but even if mine or any of my family get picked I will throw it out and draw another about next people will cry about favorites. Anybody that knows me or my family and have been to our farm for gtgs know we aren't rich but will help anyone we can with anything we can. I'm a very quiet and honest person but in this new all about me mambe pampbe society we live in I guess that doesn't mean anything anymore.
    I will draw the rest tomorrow and delete my account shortly after this is ridiculous.
