And the winner is... Art Shaddix of Magnolia, TX!
Raffle day 2010 was an exciting and fun-filled day! Out on the ramp, we had several fly-in visitors including the Aero Commander of Coats & Evans, Gale Haskins' PT-19, along with a Cessna 172H and a Cessna 170 taildragger!
Out front, we broke the record for the most cars in our parking lot! There were cars from all vintages, and all of them looked great in front of the museum!
After lunch, everyone gathered in the atrium for the raffle drawing. Several people came by to spin the ticket cage one last time before we drew the winner.
Shortly after 2pm, Amanda Adams of Blazek & Vetterling certified public accountants drew the winning ticket.
Art was not in attendance, so we quickly got him on the phone and let him know that he was the winner! We had the phone hooked up to the loudspeaker and everyone was listening in. He said he was in shock!
Thanks to museum volunteers Steve & Michael Wiley, we were able to live stream the giveaway over the internet! Using a cell phone with a high speed connection, we broadcasted the event to about 80+ people!
All of us at the 1940 Air Terminal Museum would like to say congratulations to Art, and wish him and his family all the best!
