The Drawing was held and the winner was the holder of ticket 6327. The guest with initials W C who made the reservation on January 30th for 6/12 through 6/17 on will have the room paid for by the festival. Congratulations! WC will be notified by email.
Everyone who reserved a room in our group by May 23rd is in the drawing. You received one ticket every day until May 23, so the first person to reserve a room back in October has 221 tickets while everyone who waited until the last day gets 1 ticket.
We were going to make actual tickets and put them in a barrel as pictured above but with a total of over 20,000 tickets we decided to do the drawing electronically. The list of guests and their ticket numbers is posted HERE. Only initials are shown for privacy reasons but it should not be hard to find your ticket numbers.
There are 21,915 virtual tickets so will use Random.org to generate a number between 1 and 21,915 and that will be the winning ticket. The winner will be notified by email or phone. The number picker shown here will be used for the drawing at 6:00 p.m. PDT.
