I did my best to try to match winners up with prizes that they might be interested in, but I do realize some winners may not want their prize.  Thus, the sooner that they let me know they want to pass, I will draw another name.  A possibility exists that those that have passed may also be offered a prize where somone else has declined, but their isn't a guarantee that once someone has declined one prize that they will win another prize.
Winners will have 3 days to claim their prizes by sending me an email with their mailing address.  I will be sending an email message to all winners, and ask winners to let me know ASAP if they wish to claim their prize or pass.  Winners for unclaimed prizes will be redrawn at random, as appropriate.

In closing, I hope you  have a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful Winter holiday.
