Ok, kids!

Confirmation received that GTMW lottery responses are out. Saw a friend got his denial.. the little card said a little under 40% of entries got filled. That seems pretty high.. usually closer to 30%..

Either way, when those start going out.. I start the thread.

Let’s hear it.. who won? Who’ll be there?

Lost on the lottery, but still hoping to scrounge up some tickets somehow!

Hopefully that means I’ll find out tomorrow. I’ll be in Madison regardless.

Sent in two envelopes, got two denials. Might still come for the Friday activities.

My dad got a denial, I haven’t seen a denial or confirmation yet. So definitely ISO at least 2 tickets.

I could possibly have an extra pair of tickets for sale (face-value of course), I’ll post any update in this thread. It appears our friends can’t make it...

Got the rejection yesterday. Bummer, I have really enjoyed this for the last 2 years.

ISO 2 tickets if anyone has extra

Haven’t got any rejection notices yet, so fingers crossed

I take that back, I just checked my bank account and it was down $100 mysteriously this morning....see you in Madison!
