Your hostess is lbrabec
Your cardholder is Aspenjocop and back-up cardholder is Syrumani.

I will post a list of 40 names below.Everyone please select 20 and Dmail your list to Aspenjocop ..Do not post it here or send it to me.Please don't forget to put both the name and number on your picks.Please be sure to have your picks in by Midnight January 25th.

I will make at least 1 call a day,plus random bonus calls starting Saturday the 26th.The first person to get all 20 calls wins and we will play until all prizes are awarded.In the event of a tie,there will be a tiebreaker.Winners will pick their prizes from the list.If a bingo is posted I will wait until the next day at noon CST to see if there are any more winners,in case of a tie,before I have you choose your prize.I will contact the prize donor and they will then contact the person who won their prize.Winners,please don't forget to thank the person who provided your prize!

I will list all the prizes and the players list before the game starts.
If anyone can think of a good tiebreaker,please let me know.Right now I am thinking of just having my husband draw a name.

I think this will be a really fun game! The more chat and pictures the merrier!

Does anyone have any questions before we start?

Lynn

Here's how I'm doing: DH is 95% sure he will get a transfer to North Carolina here in the next few weeks. So, I'm all good with having to break the lease, etc . . . but what is the point of calling a moving company to come to do an in-home estimate, if they don't give you the estimate right then? They said to DH - "We'll email it to you". oi
