A raffle is being conducted at midyear to incentivize staying until the very end of the Saturday general session. To participate in this raffle, you must purchase a ticket for $5.00 each or 3 for $10.00. Please be advised that only the person presenting the winning ticket is eligible to win the grand prize cruise for two. No proxies will be allowed. For tickets see Dan or Casey Masi in the vendor area at the convention.
