Free Drawing

I first announced my free drawing in the January 1 issue of my newsletter. This drawing was exclusively for newsletter subscribers. The winners were to be randomly drawn on February 1st. I used my custom random number generator to randomly draw the winners. Well, it took all of February to notify the winners. I spent countless hours trying to notify winners by email, keep track of who did and did not claim their prize, and so on. Many people simply did not reply to my messages. Finally I realized that the word prize was a trigger for email filters, not to mention that some people were away on vacation. Would you believe there are 3 unclaimed prizes? Sigh...
