CONTEST - Win 10 Tickets for the ONA Good As Gold Draw!

{http://www.cdnpapermoney.com/sndb/images/contestbanner_onadraw2.jpg}

Over the past year or so, we have run several contests in conjunction with the Serial Number Database:

The winning continues here at the Canadian Paper Money Forums! This is the third of the Paul Wallis Memorial SNDB Contests in memory of the founder of this website, Paul Wallis who passed away not too long ago. The contests are supported by several individuals, including:
  • twoinvallarta: Donated $500 towards prizes and shipping expenses
  • Robert Pepping: Provided the prizes for the Jan. 2012 contest at a reduced cost
  • www.polymernotes.org by Stane Straus: Donated the prizes for the Aug. 2011 contest

[imga=right]http://img21.imageshack.us/img21/760/goodasgoldticket.jpg[/imga]This contest, proudly supported by twoinvallarta, consists of five sets of ten tickets for the 2012 ONA Good As Gold Draw.  The draw will be held April 15, 2012 in conjunction with the Ontario Numismatic Association's 50th anniversary convention in Kitchener, Ontario.  The top prize is a one ounce solid gold maple bullion coin from the Royal Canadian Mint.  There is also a second place prize and five consolation prizes.  Tickets have been selling rapidly as buyers are catching gold fever.  These tickets have been paid for through a generous donation from twoinvallarta.

The Serial Number Database has been loaded up with five secret numbers. The first five forum members to add a note to the SNDB that matches one of those secret numbers will win a set of ten tickets! The odds of winning one of these prize packs are about 1:100. The more notes you add to the SNDB, the better chance you have of winning.

To enter the contest, simply add your notes to the Serial Number Database!

If the SNDB declares you a winner, you need to email me a scan or photo of the winning note to confirm that you actually have it. If you've already deposited the note back to the bank, or if you've spent it, your win will be disqualified. Estimated prize value: CAD$20. There are five separate prizes available to be won, but you can only win once. Only notes entered to the SNDB after the start of the contest are eligible to win. Members who have won a previous prize within the last six months are ineligible.

The tickets will be retained by the ONA Treasurer on your behalf.  If you have an opportunity to pick them up in person before the draw, you may do so.  Your ticket numbers will be emailed to you.  To register your tickets, a full name, mailing address and phone number is required.

If you have any questions about this contest, please email or PM me.

Congratulations to our first three winners!

Skylark, yuman and Rag_Picker have all won 10 tickets each for the ONA Good As Gold draw being held April 15 in conjunction with the ONA's annual convention in Kitchener.

You too could win a set of ten tickets!  All you have to do is enter your notes into the Serial Number Database.  There are still two sets up for grabs.
