The period for signing up is now over.

A few participants will receive 2X, but most who requested it will not ... sorry!

There are two remaining samples of Tony's Private Collection Da Yu Ling 102K.

So, a simple lottery. If you are a participant, pick a number between 1-100 and email it to me at teachatmoderator@yahoo.com. The two closest will win the free samples. In the event more than 2 select winning numbers, the early birds will win!

If you already won one of the samples, you are not eligible for a second.

You must reply by 12:28 AM Eastern USA time Thursday. 24 hours exactly from now!!!

WE have winners ... and will announce in 2-3 weeks.

OK, just kidding.

BTW, the numbers selected by participants followed odd patterns and there were a bunch of duplicates. I am guessing half were in the 70's for instance.

OK, we compiled all the "lottery submissions." Really weird ...

Here is how it played out.

23 participants submitted a lottery pick before the deadline.

Mrs. C was delegated to pick a number between 1 and 100.

The very first participant picked the number exactly!!!

4 numbers were picked by two participants ... thought that was interesting. But even more so, 3 of the numbers, submitting members picked successively. So, the second and third picks were both 72. two people picked 19 in a row. Then two picked 77 in a row. The other twice selected number was 23.

And the winning number was ... 76.

Biohorn picked it right off the bat!

And the second winner is Deragoth who picked 75.

Congratulations to the two winners! And thank you everyone else for making it an interesting lottery!!!!!

Everybody knows that 7 is the most random digit.

Thanks, Chip (and SC!) For some reason, after reading that post, the Twilight Zone theme started playing in my head!
