The response to the 2016 Sidewalk Astronomers of Charlottetown Library Telescope Loaner raffle has been tremendous.
In a little more than two weeks we have sold nearly all 100 tickets available in the Big Dob Draw 2016.
At stake is a fabulous eight-inch SkyWatcher Dobsonian telescope valued at more than $500. This telescope is extremely popular among experienced and novice astronomers. It is known for its’ ease of use and impressive views of even deep space objects.
As of today, 14 October, there are less than ten tickets available and some may be reserved by buyers. Anyone interested in a ticket should contact me directly as I am coordinating the remaining ticket sales.
The draw date is scheduled for 30 November. However, in light of the response to the raffle, we are planning a much earlier draw once tickets have all been sold. Results of the draw will be posted here and on the Facebook group page.
I can be contacted via this website or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A sincere thank-you to everyone who supported this raffle as all proceeds are applied to the acquisition of a telescopes for Prince Edward Island libraries.
