    Except for yesterday - at our club General Meeting... I put a few bucks in for the raffle without paying much attention to the actual prize - just "supporting the club with my donation" sort of thing.

    When they drew the tickets at the end of the meeting, I was the winner!!....

    .... of a Larsen 144/440 trunk lip-mount antenna - which I need like the Iliad needs yet another reference to Agamemnon

    BUT - the guy who won the prize at last week's club Awards Banquet prize drawing but wasn't present that day to claim it, came to the meeting yesterday to finally claim his prize - a shiny "new in the box" Bencher BY-2 paddle.

    He approached me as I claimed my Larsen antenna and I commented "well, it's a good quality antenna but I have absolutely no need for it - I don't do mobile VHF" to which he replied "and I have this good quality Morse Code paddle but I have absolutely no need for it - I don't do CW"...........

    He went home a VERY happy camper with his new antenna - and I'm sure you can guess the "rest of the story"

    :)

    Good trade!:)

    Reminds me of the city slicker salesman driving his Cadillac through an Indian reservation...picks up an Indian who was hitchhiking along the road and the Indian is very quiet but notices a paper bag on the seat near the salesman.

    He asks, "What's in bag?"

    Driver answers, "Oh, that's a bottle of good whiskey. I actually got it for my wife."

    Indian thinks a while, and finally says, "Good trade."

    Neat! I won a prize in the Publishers Clearinghouse Sweepstakes - ten whole dollars! Also won a raffle back in grade school.

    PCHS publishes the chances of winning.

    The top prize odds are 1 in over 2.6 billion.

    Be happy for the ten bucks.:)

    I won $50 on lotto ticket (hardly ever play) and won $60 on a raffle. That is all in 70 years.
