Drawing Draws To An End

Ladies and Gentlemen, I on behalf of Larry Cafiero, Tom King, Bob Pianka, Darrel Raynor Mark Van Kingsley and the volunteers for The HeliOS Project, I want to thank you for participating in our semi-annual funding raffle.

Your generosity has been humbling and the majority of you that donated, dwell within the Linux Community. Few, if any from outside did, although they were invited. Yes, I said Community...for as often as I've decried it as a myth, it is obvious that the fires burn warmly within our township and those who want shelter or citizenship are always more than welcome.

We take the time to allow an independent audit of our raffle so that before the drawing, in the event anyone was missed, the problem is corrected immediately. There is also a post-drawing audit to make sure the numbers balance. Allow 24-48 hours after the drawing for your prizes to be shipped. We do this for everyone's benefit and ask you patience. The drawing is scheduled to take place at 3:00 pm CST on 3 July, 2009. I have several installs tomorrow so in the event I get back late and you do not see the first winner announced on the helios17 twitter, check back at 4pm cst and it will take place simply means I ran a bit late.

We go forward into the last half of the year, refueled, refunded for the summer months and ready for all challenges that may face us. May your God bless and keep you.

And as always.

Thank you so much for being part of what we do.
