At the 2016 Annual Meeting, the SFMS replaced the stamp collecting program with a drawing to raise
funds to provide full Scholarships to the SFMS Workshops. We are asking all member clubs and societies
to participate in two ways.
The first way to participate is to donate an item to be a drawing prize. Each member club will receive
acknowledgement if it donates a prize, or if a member of the club donates a prize. All prizes should be
mailed to Dave Wayment, PO Box 780791, Sebastian, FL 23978.
Each prize should be identified, include the value of the item (we request that prizes have at least a $25 value), identify who made the item if it is hand made, and who donated the item. Photographs and descriptions of all prizes will be posted on the SFMS website and published in the Loadstar.
The second way to participate is to sell the drawing tickets. Each member club is being sent 100 tickets
for the drawing. The tickets are $5 each or 5 tickets for $20. We ask that each member club's treasurer,
or another member chosen by the club, be in charge of selling the tickets, collecting the funds, and
returning the ticket stubs, monies and unsold tickets to Dave Wayment at the same above address.
The drawing for the prizes will be held at the Annual Meeting. We will need the ticket stubs, etc, returned
no later than 3 weeks prior to the Annual Meeting. For 2017, October 1st is the date we are looking to
have the items returned by.
Please remember, the scholarships to SFMS workshops are NOT prizes in the drawing. All member clubs
that participate will be entered into a drawing for the scholarships as outlined in the By-Laws:
FOR THE SCHOLARSHIP DRAWING, EACH MEMBER CLUB WILL HAVE 1 CHANCE IN THE DRAWING FOR EACH PRIZE ITEM DONATED FROM THE CLUB.
FOR THE DRAWING TICKETS SOLD, EACH MEMBER CLUB WILL RECEIVE CHANCES IN THE DRAWING BASED UPON THE NUMBER OF TICKETS SOLD DIVIDED BY THE NUMBER OF MEMBERS, AS REPORTED TO THE MEMBERSHIP SECRETARY THAT YEAR.
IF THIS PERCENTAGE IS LESS THAN OR EQUAL TO 0.25 THEY WILL RECEIVE 1 CHANCE IN THE DRAWING.
FOR PERCENTAGES GREATER THAN 0.25 BUT LESS THAN OR EQUAL TO 0.5 THEY WILL RECEIVE 2 CHANCES IN THE DRAWING.
FOR PERCENTAGES GREATER THAN 0.5 BUT LESS THAN OR EQUAL TO 0.75 THEY WILL
RECEIVE 3 CHANCES IN THE DRAWING.
FOR PERCENTAGES GREATER THAN 0.75 BUT LESS THAN OR
EQUAL TO 1.0 THEY WILL RECEIVE 4 CHANCES IN THE DRAWING.
FOR PERCENTAGES GREATER THAN 1.0 THEY WILL RECEIVE 5 CHANCES IN THE DRAWING.
