“Chance to Win Big” at the State Meet

It is less than two weeks until we will be gathering in Snyder to begin the 35th State Cushman Meet.

Please remember we will be having the Ice Cream Social and Auction on Thursday night. The proceeds are to be used to donate to the American Cancer Society and to offset the costs of the State Meet. Bring an item to donate plus some money to spend.

I thought you needed to be reminded to play this new game that Richard Kesselus has created.

Now for the BIG SURPRISE! The grand prize will be……. a blanket printed with all 35 State Meet patches plus the TCC logo.


This was created and donated  by Raymond and Chrysti Love with images provided by Jim and Jill Wadlow.

CHANCE TO WIN BIG

Greetings: Here is a new game we are going to play in Snyder. The folks in Snyder have been very gracious and helpful in our quest to have our State Meet in their City. So, in return we thought it would be fitting to pay them back in kind. We are going to call the game “Chance to Win Big”. Below is a list of the Snyder Chamber of Commerce members. Go over the list of Chamber members and if there is a product you need wait until you get to Snyder to make the purchase. Our game will be a raffle of sorts and you can receive one raffle ticket for each receipt you have from a Chamber member, one per day from each member. Example if there is a gas station Chamber member you can only get one raffle ticket for a receipt from that member per day go back the next day and make a purchase get another ticket. Tickets will also be available for sale. There will be one grand prize and several other prizes. The more tickets you have in the jug the better your chance to “Win Big”. The tickets will be drawn at the Banquet and you must be present to win. Looking forward to our time together in West Texas. Richard
