Speaking from experience with giving things away, this might be a little
hard to manage, and people are unlikely to want to answer (also, it implies
this student/teacher relationship which in marketing terms is a no-no. Sorry
to preach). I liked what we did last year - every person who signed up to
the ML got a ticket, and we drew a ticket number from a (red) hat every
hour/half hour. Had to be there at the draw to win the prize.

Of course, I'm happy with whatever you prefer to do, though.

Also wanted to say that if volunteer numbers are low, I might be able to pop
in with my daughter in tow. I probably won't be able to stay long, so
knowing what times you're short on helpers for would be useful.


Cheers! Lana

the name it bears. Things are not only what they are. They are, in very
important respects, what they seem to be.
