To fill-in the tickets it's much easier to use self adhesive mailing labels. It saves you a lot of time, and all you have to write is the telephone number, and time. But you can also have the phone number on the label along the name and address.

At any rate I don't think he's got a case. I do wonder if the classics are 'fixed.'

What I do is to make a copy of all the tickets once I have entered all the information. But even with such a copy on hand it would be difficult to prove that I deposited the tickets in the Classic's collection cans. One can place a lot of tickets side by side on the copy machine to fill an 8"x11" page

Exactly...just because you have a copy of the ticket doesn't mean it made it into the barrel. Who's to say that the origninal isn't sitting on the guys kitchen counter?

You are right. The only way that this may be prevented is by having the tickets scanned into a database by the Ice Classic officials, who in turn can give you a receipt. Otherwise the chance of them or the buyer losing tickets will always exist.

RayinAK- Why not when you get the 'day' you think the ice will break have a computer print everything on the label... Then no writers cramp...

Although one would think to be fair, you could only enter a certain number of times...

If a day costs $3600. A week costs $25,200. I would spend $25k to get $350k... Even if several people won... as long as I got more than $25k...
