Sounds like a good cause...

One question... shipping if the winner is from out of town? (out of state...)

Default Shipping is covered, naturally

Hideho and thank you for your interest.

Yes, the folks who have donated the prizes will cover normal shipping to the CONUS.
Several will be comming from me, but if your out of country I hope that you'll be willing to negotiate the additional expenses, if that seems reasonable to you.

VETCH, copy those phone numbers of mine, gimmie a call and I'll come on out to meet you, or you can stop by my office (right across from COSTCO) and I'll give you the grand tour of the valley complete with all the choice flying spots.
Welcome home Sarge...

Thank you both for your time and attention,

Mike
