Door Prize Info – NEAR-Fest XXI

As we did last fall, there will be TWO Grand Prize drawings, one on Friday, one on Saturday. An ICOM IC-7300 is one of the prizes, the other prize is still pending arrangements and will be announced as soon as the arrangements are complete. If the Friday prize winner is present at the drawing he or she may choose either prize. The Saturday winner will receive the prize that is left. If the Friday prize winner is not present to choose the prize on Friday the Saturday winner, who must be present to win will be able to choose which prize he or she prefers. The remaining prize will be shipped to the Friday winner.
