    Default 2012 Haven Foundation Prizes and Rules Announcement!!

    The Grand Prize for this year’s Haven Foundation Fundraiser is going to be a Stephen King inscribed Scribner First Edition of “The Wind Through The Keyhole”. Mr. King’s office has graciously agreed that King will inscribe the book to the winner, with a brief inscription chosen by the winner. Please note-Last year it took a bit over 6 months for the winner to receive his book, so please be patient.

    In the unlikely event that King is unable to sign the book, a suitable replacement King signed (but not inscribed) book will be substituted.
    A person may only win one of the smaller prizes; however they will still be in the running for the Grand Prize.

    The drawings are weighted so that a person receives one entry for every $10 cash or equivalent value for auction/drawing items with a maximum number of entries capped at 10. Example: Person “A” donated $50-they receive 5 entries in the drawing. Person “B” donated $300 in cash and equivalent auction/giveaway items-they receive 10 entries. Person "C" donated $10-they receive 1 entry.

    I will draw the winners for all 12 items listed below, and announce the winners starting Thursday May 31, 2012 at ~ 10:00 AM PDT (1:00 PM EDT-5:00PM GMT) The Grand Prize winner will be chosen by Brian Freeman from Cemetery Dance. Date and Time for the Grand Prize Drawing TBA.

    FYI, for the prizes there are <250 total entries. There are several people who have 10 entries. In essence the person who donated $10 has a 1/250 chance of winning. The individuals who capped out at 10 entries have Ten 1/250 chances to win.

    So should we just go ahead and announce Ari as the winner of the grand prize before the drawing and forgo the formality? LOL

    Actually we could remove Ari's name entirely and still it would turn up.

    This question has been asked (Via PM) now that the "odds" have been announced. Yes a person can donate, but it will NOT be used in this years drawing. We talked about this for 5+ months.
    BTW, the odds are similar to last year-and ARI did not win (last year). The weighted, but capped at 10 really helps those who did a lot, but doesn't preclude the single $10 donor. There are actually only ~+/-100 unique individual donors.
    It may be the best donation odds a person ever gets.

    Brice's comment was too funny! While Ari didn't win last year's Haven Foundation grand prize, he sure has won a lot of SK-related drawings at various sites over the years. (Way to go, Ari!)


    Great prize list ! Thank you to all the prize donors, like Mr. R.T., Cemetery Dance, Alex McVey, and Jerome!

    Good luck in the drawing, contestants!

    I think I donated $20 and on top of that I sent in the net proceeds of the proof I 'auctioned'. Does that count as a donation from my part, from James' part (who bought the proof) or 50% for each of us? It doesn't really matter to me it's more of an academic question.
