Topic: My first Tradition (14 msgs / 307 lines)
1) From: Dennis & Marjorie True
Ok Folks,
    Here goes my first and long overdue Tradition since I now have some 
coffee that is out of stock my offering is
1# of Mexican Oaxaca from SM last years offering.
this is such a great coffee I just discovered how good by roasting it 
lighter then I normally do
IMPORTANT NOTES YOU MUST FOLLOW
Please email me off list at
*dennist3
 *by Friday night and I will do something magical in drawing the winners 
name and announce it on Saturday
Note if you do not follow these directions you won't get your name in 
the hat/drum/pond or where ever I end up drawing it.
Good Luck to all
Dennis

2) From: Dennis True
Just a few more things to think about with regards to my offering-
     1) Oaxaca Charley was down in Mexico and spoke on list about how 
this year there might not be very much of this wonderful bean due to the 
storms.
     2) Since I am a Navy Lifer you just might get something Nautical in 
the package as well -ask those that have been the recipients of my 
Christmas swap packages I always throw in some goodies
     3) There are currently only *15* names in my hat/pond/roaster or 
where ever I put the names.....(thinking Pond it will be a first just 
how to do it....pondering)
     4) I have replied to every entry I have gotten if you have not 
gotten a reply please shoot me another note.
Good Luck all who enter....

Ok everybody I know the crowd is dying to find out who won the Tradition 
but alas I got asked to help a fellow shipmate that just bought his 
first house move today and I couldn't say no so I will draw tomorrow 
morning
the eggs are out and rubber duckies are in...
there are 27 names so the duckies will be numbered 1-27 randomly by my 
lovely wife and they will all go in the pond with both of my fountains 
on so they will all get mixed up and then after a few practice shots I 
am going to start smacking away and yes Marjorie will take some pictures 
of me so everyone can see and I will announce the winner as soon as I am 
done
Once again to all I am sorry for not getting the chance to determine the 
winner today but patience is a virtue right?

4) From: Dennis & Marjorie True
Ok Now for the Long Awaited, Much Anticipated Winner
After realizing that I couldn't get the ducks to leave the pond by the 
means of the golf club I went to plan B ver. 2 (it was just lots of 
splashing and me getting wet but the ducks were determined to stay in 
the water)
So While listening to Jimmy Buffet wearing my Parrot head hat and 
Espresso Monkey Shirt I placed all the ducks in a hula hoop(to ensure 
equal distance)  and started swinging to the pond.  All the ones that 
made in in the pond (10 after the first round)
went back to the hoop and I kept doing that until I was left with just a 
lone duck that made it into the pond  it took 5 rounds I guess I got 
better at hacking....
the winner was #13
looking back over the entries the winner is (drum-roll please....)
Bill coffeewyo
Congratulations Bill
get me your snail mail addy and the Prize will be on it's way Via 
Priority Mail tomorrow or Tuesday!
This was alot of fun and I'll have to do it again soon (BTW I have about 
30 rubber duckies for sale cheap)
I'll get some pictures up on shortly....

everyone must explore their inner child from time to time:O)
Dennis this was a great tradition gift and a quite unique way of picking a
winning ticket, an in your case a winning duck.

Hey thanks for the tradition, inspiration and laughs.  I'm looking
forward to winning a tradition someday so I can think of a fun random
selection method!

14) From: Bill
A last shout-out to Dennis True.  He mailed the tradition from the east
coast on Monday and I got it TODAY in ol' Wyo.  Thanks Dennis!  I got a
rubber ducky (still had east coast water inside!), a sweet Navy mug, and a
pound of oaxaca greens.  So thanks a ton, Dennis.  Great tradition.  I'll
let everyone know what I think of the oaxaca.  I'll probably roast it up on
Saturday.
Bill
