Hi Duncan - 1st January is the draw so watch this space and be lucky. :thumbsup:

Can I also please ask everyone buying the tickets to add their forum name in the section marked "Add special instructions to the seller" as this lets us know who you are? You may not be recognisable from an e mail address! Thanks.

A simply great notion - congrats. to "the boys" and thanks to the contributors.  Without you we just wouldn't have such a useful forum.  We Ngaugers appreciate the hard work you put in to make it a success.  Cheers to you all; I'll drink a tot of rum to the Birthday boy tonight.

The odds will depend on:

A - How many tickets you buy
B - How many tickets are sold in total
C - How many prizes we have

I think it would work like this:
1 in (B / (A x C)) chance

But like someone said, no ticket - no prize. The chances are far, far better than the lottery too.

I have bought my tickets. The main prize for me will be knowing that the forum is funded and can keep running in 2012.
