    2. Will the larger prizes be at the picnic or does the winner need to arrange to pick them up from the donors?

    1. The easiest way to buy tickets is to click the large banner at the top of the page with Papa Smurf and rolls of raffle tickets in the image. Doesn't get much easier than that.
    2. I expect that none of the prizes that are physically large will be at the picnic. Too much trouble to bring large items there, find a place for them, just to take them home if the winner isn't present.

    Sorry, but the banner doesn't show on my header main page. I was able to find it in the thread, though. May need to keep the thread at the top then.
    WHAT BOX?

    That is a good point. If you aren't seeing the banner, then I am sure other people are not as well. Are you viewing on a phone or PC?

    To aid in Dennis' and any other users with the same issue, Papa Smurf functions properly for me, though it does ask me if I want to leave the page. If I select yes, I can still step back to this page, but lose some history. I am running W7-SP1, Build 7601 and Firefox 57.0.4 if that helps. At least for the time being. I refuse to "upgrade" to version 10 of the windows virus on my home machines and will transition to some version of Linux soon.

    I'll make sure to post links to buy tickets with each announcement. Other than that, I doubt anyone is going to look into this since we will be transitioning to a new site in the hopefully near future.

    You've probably got an ad-blocker running if you're not seeing banner ads. Please turn it off for this site, then. There could be other reasons but that is the most common.

    Maybe we should think of a fixed thread for those who have ad blockers installed. Many people installed ad blocker years ago and don't even remember having done so. Like me. What!

    I don't understand what you are referring to. What is a fixed thread and what content would we put there that isn't already in this thread.

    Re: 2018 NCWW Raffle Tickets On Sale - Drawing at Picnic on May 19th

    Look in some other sites and you'll likely notice that one or more threads always remain in the top position; doesn't scroll down...ever.
    Some people have probably forgotten they ever installed ad blocker and have no idea why they can't see the banner.
    But it will not affect the threads, Help your readers out...

    Ok, I understand now. I believe we call that a sticky thread. I'll create one with a link for tickets.
