Contest #1: Blank Lottery

It's fun and it's free. Well almost free....

Winner take all ... (subject to change)
Now comes the hard part...
Selecting and Parting with a Blank YOU WOULD WANT TO WIN.
HERE'S HOW IT WORKS... You will Receive ONE Ticket for every blank you bring to the MPG and donate to the LOTTERY. It's that simple, just sort through that Personal Stash of Treasured Blanks (we all have one) and pick out something that you would love to win, and bring it to the check in desk at the MPG 2022.

There are no limits to how many times you can enter!
The Winner does not have to be present to win.
Lets see those Favorite Blanks, Beautiful Burls, Custom Casts, and Rare Treasures!
Please put a label on the blank with your name and the blank details.
