LONE STAR RAFFLE: OFFICIAL NOTICE (posted by owner Gary Powell)

We are holding a raffle for Lone Star. We are offering 600 tickets at $200.00 (US) each. Buy as many as you wish. We will also register 60 alternate names for late-comers to cover possible defaults. We are aiming for a drawing in December 2008 or January 2009. Once there are 600 commitments, the funds will be collected. At that time you will send your certified check or money order by registered mail, return receipt requested to the address to be designated. Lone Star will then be open for inspection at Marina San Carlos for all ticket holders, or their representatives, for 30 to 60 days, or until all ticket holders have seen the boat or have communicated their satisfaction.

The drawing ceremony will be held in San Carlos. All ticket holders are invited to attend. The 600 tickets will go into a basket, or some other container, which will be available for inspection by ticket holders. A disinterested third party will draw the lucky winner's name. The drawing will be video-taped for those who cannot attend. A celebration party will follow the drawing with congratulations to the lucky winner and BOOOZZZZE for the also ran's. An absentee winner will be notified by e-mail or phone immediately.

How much did your last night out on the town cost? Is it now just a $200 dollar memory? With your ticket you may become the new owner of the finest high-performance cruising boat around. This is your official invitation to buy a chance to win Lone Star. The sooner we get our 600 entrants the sooner we can hold the drawing.

Lone Star will be transferred to the winner by Marine Documentation Service, Inc., 212 Commercial Ave., Anacortes, WA 98221. You can phone or fax them to confirm our clear title and ownership. We will e-mail you those numbers upon your request. Nevada title and registration will be transferred at our cost, approximately $125.00 (U.S). We will pay the escrow fee up to $250.00 (U.S). These funds will be credited if the new owner wishes to make other arrangements. The lucky winner will take delivery of Lone Star at Marina San Carlos. The slip rent will be paid to the first of the month following the transfer.

We invite your comments, questions and suggestions. With your permission we will post your contributions on our web site to share with your fellow ticket holders. Lone Star is still, and will be, for sale at $89,950.00 (U.S) until all 600 tickets are sold. The success of the raffle will terminate the necessity for the sale. Contact Marina San Carlos, San Carlos, Sonora, Mexico to confirm Lone Star's location.

We are planning to be back in San Carlos on or before November 1. E-mail us at this address and register for your chance: svlonestar@yahoo.com Please include your full name, home address, phone number and email address as well as the number of tickets you want to buy. We will reply and give you your numbers, 12 through 600. If you know someone who you think would be interested forward this email to them. Remember we are serious about the limited number of tickets.
