While this is a topic ... more credit where credit is due. 

I've kept some cards close to my chest on this one.  One is now up for play. 

I've been in close comms about this raffle with Brett, the Facebook page owner, since just before the raffle was publicly announced.  

Our raffle, while operating thoroughly independently over that period, is a subset of the ticket allocation graciously arranged for Powderworkers from The Office and given to both FB and yahoo lists.  We are to the Office one entity "Powderworks ... Powderworkers". 

Brett and I have been collaborating cordially and productively over the last few days to get the Yahoo raffle over the line and we've both held still when some acid comments bubbled up. 

When raffle winners turn up at Selinas, they'll find themselves walking in alongside FB peers, some of whom I notice are also well-known old-list members. 

Now is the time to heal.

Thanks to all for making this happen (esp pulling this together in short time, and over late nights and weekends!), and making some of us on this list very lucky and happy. 

See the other lucky folk at Selina’s – and if you’re going to be at the NYC show on May 13th, let me know. 

Let’s ROCK!

And jumping in fast, thanks!

But, just a cog in the fabulous machine here.  Lots of leg work for me this time, but it'll be someone else's turn another time, as it was a previous time.

Last time I was, and next time I might be again, a passenger on someone else's hard work.

Good to see the list happy and excited about a tour again!  That's my big reward.

Cheers, see you at the Brisvagas gig?

Hi everyone

Now that the dust is settled, I wanted to correct an impression and give recognition where it is due.

While it is always nice to be on the receiving end of gratitude, there have been far too many such emails - about the ballot - that mentioned my name specifically. While I was involved every step of the way, the person to whom we all owe a great debt of gratitude is Rob. He was in contact with the office, he dealt with them about the tickets and he did all the heavy lifting. I was interstate without good access to a PC and it was Rob who spent many hours this weekend communicating with all of you and the office to get this sorted out in the quickest and fairest way possible. So next time you meet Rob, buy him a beer. I know I will.


How could people get so unkind?
