BUY IN = $10
In the past some have put in more money, but let it be known, if we win, we will still all get an equal share. But we will all thank you greatly for the extra contribution, and I will let it be known who was nice enough to bump it up (if you so wish, or I can keep it anonymous). If you want to add a buy in for a spouse/SO make sure to fill the form out TWICE with unique info so I can contact you each individually.
DEADLINE: Friday July 8, 2016
EXAMPLE WINNING SCENARIO:
We win $250,000, 50 people bought in, we split $250,000 – tax cut / 50. We will be doing a lump payout, and we will use some of the funds to have a lawyer do the divvy process, to try and levvy as much tax saving as we can. I am thinking I take the tax cut (Minnesota), and say we’re an anonymous group of friends who won. I will then divide it up how you like … I can mail a check, cash, MO, etc, will let the lawyer make the decision for us. We have options, but like I said, let’s not worry about it until we win 🙂
or split it pretax and you collect yourself and pay your taxes. If I recall someone said that was an option.
STEP 1 :
send $10 via venmo (preferred), google wallet, or Amazon Gift card, IF YOU SEND AS CC, ADD 3%:
Venmo address: done
Google wallet: done
Amazon GC: much prefer venmo, but this option is still possible: done
If you have heatware, I could also do a MO/cash/check, but email me first for my address.
STEP 2 :
Fill this quick form out :
This way I can keep track of everyone two fold, and then send a quick email once I get the actual tickets and we can split up the data entry work as we did last time. I will also update this blog post.
TIME TO WIN!

Sooooooo we got the numbers. Funny story, RossMan/7-11 might have screwed up, or really did us a solid, and the last 4 tickets are 10 draws a ticket. It’s an honest mistake, so make sure you make fun of him :). Not everyone is used to getting almost $900 in tickets.
But to business, can you guys enter the numbers as we used to here:
