      Justin, I'll have the certificates drawn up some time mid-week. Call before you come and I'll have one of my concubines meet you at the door!

  • Filippo

    I love this group, really! I'd love it even if I didn't win, but I won. :P hehe Pac Star trip for 2: Does it have to be 2 people in 1 trip, or can I break it down to 2 trips with just myself? Wife won't join me, too cold for her. :(

    Grazie Bill/PS! :) To a great 2014!

    • Filippo

      Gotcha. I'll ask my wife and if she doesn't wanna go I'll post something on this group when the time comes. I don't mind giving the other spot to someone else for free. Veronica, that could be you. :) Will let everyone know what trip and date. Stay tuned guys. Ciao

    • Bill P.

      Ten is not a bad number. Sometimes it's just the luck of the draw. Someone buying just one entry could have nailed it.

      December 27, 2013

    • Mike A.

      Yeah someone should be buying lottery tickets!
