Queen of Diamonds this Saturday!

To learn more about the machines see below. 
Queen Raffle Rules
Queen of Diamond Machines
The machines are in and installed, we couldn't be more excited! The good news is that you will be able to get your Queens tickets any time we are open. Just purchase your tickets from the machine write your name, phone number and the number you want drawn on the ticket. You do not have to be present to win but if this information is not on your ticket and you are not present your ticket will be considered invalid and we will draw another ticket. 

Remember you MUST be a valid American Legion, Auxiliary or SAL member with a current card to play. If someone purchases a ticket and is not a valid member the ticket will be considered invalid. 

We know that many of you are as excited about the machines as we are but there are a few details that need to be remembered.

The machine dispenses tickets immediately when you insert your money. Why is this important that you know this? Because is you are planning on spending $5 on tickets, to get the 6 tickets for $5 deal, you will need to put in a $5 dollar bill. If you put  in five 1 dollar bills you will only get five tickets. 

The other thing to remember is that each machine only holds one color ticket.  All four color tickets will be available through the machines but each machine will hold a different color. You will only be able to get the 6 tickets for $5 deal if you purchase from one machine. Which would mean your tickets will all be the same color.

If you would like to purchase one of each color you will have to come to the Post on Saturday evenings. You of course, can purchase just one ticket from each machine to get one of each color you will just miss out on the deal. Or you can spend $5 in each machines and end up with 6 tickets of each color. 

If you have any additional questions please see myself, Joe, Jim, Tom or Rick.
