The raffle was too long. One hour is a long time to stand around. Get rid of the little prizes. Have like 5 prizes two big and 3 small. 10 minutes was to long to wait to see if the person was there. With all the radios and 3 fm stations brocasting the name picked 5 minutes would be a good time to wait. If you are not right there you could call in on 146.520 and say that you are coming. There are a lot of older people and 1 hour was to long just to be standing around. Most of us are there for two days . On Saturday Most of us are up and around by 8:00 A.M. To be walk around for 4 hours and then have to stand around for 1 hour for some little prizes , Makes it a long day. I do not think they had to raffle off the DX maps. The last Hamfest they where giving them out for free. I think 20 minutes would a time to shoot for next fall. Short and sweet.

The number of prizes isn't an issue. I think it can be more easily addressed by not waiting for the person to come up before moving on to the next prize. If the person isn't nearby, simply set their winning ticket aside with the prize, and move on. If they don't show up within the time alotted, draw another ticket. That should easily cut the time in half, or better.

Simple. :)

I am with Tod on this one.. Just set it aside for 10 mins and  pull the next one. Tim did a VERY nice job on the announcements!

        Exactly my thoughts as Todd stated. Give Tim stronger glasses and he can go faster!
