Default EKG and Tettnanger Hop RAFFLE for Charity

After running the members only hop lottery here, I was sure that I was down to just my own personal reserves. What I failed to consider is that I brew American beers 10x as often as English/German beers and that a couple pounds will last me for years. Enough chit chat. I have ONE surplus pound each of 2007 EKG and Tettnanger, frozen and vac packed. If you don't know how rare and expensive the hops are, hit the 3-4 major online HBS and then come back. (lowest price on EKG is $2 an ounce, tett $3.75/oz). Midwest has both in pound quantities for $40.

I recently also held an HBT-only auction for 4 pounds of Tett and forwarded the gross proceeds to the Betty Ford Center.

I want to do something similar, but to increase the interest and make it fun, I'm going to do this as a raffle instead of an auction so you have a chance of getting something for nearly nothing. Here's how it's going to work.

Each entry is $1 via paypal. The winner will be randomly drawn once for each hop so you can enter in either raffle or both. You may also buy more than one chance in each hop variety, $3 will actually get you FIVE chances and $5 will get you TEN chances.
Entries are closed.

The multi-entry discounts will only apply in one transaction (e.g. Enter quantity of 3 for 5 entries and qty 5 for 10 entries. Don't go back 3 times and enter qty of 1) I hope that's clear.

I will accept entries until Sunday 9/21/08, 11pm Eastern. All entries will be confirmed on Monday morning in this thread. The two winners will be picked at random in each pool and announced Tuesday and hops will be shipped the same morning 9/23/08. There has been some trouble getting the HBT usernames tracked in paypal so don't worry about it. When I list the participants and winners later, they'll be by your paypal name..
The raffle is open to U.S. and Canadian residents.

I am donating the hops and my time for the cause, then the net proceeds after paypal fees and shipping will be forwarded to the Betty Ford Center Children's Program.

Good luck to all that participate. Let me know if there are any technical issues with the paypal links, this is the first time I'm trying this style of link.

So I figure that I'll go back and try for some EKG too, just to prove that I can do it right. But to confirm my dumbness can't see where to enter the HTB username. Does it go in the "Add Special Instructions to Merchant" spot?
