Re: 2008 Palm Beach Open Photos - the fantastic prize wall (literally) and ceremony!

Then, there was a massive free-for-all as everyone came up to get the many remaining prizes. As I said at the beginning of this thread, there were plenty of nice prizes. Contestants were getting spearguns and other high value items pretty far down the list throughout the ceremony.

But, the interesting thing is the story of Emily Woodberry. She came down from her normal hunting grounds near Cape Canaveral to dive off Palm Beach. Her take was small to say the least as the photo below indicates. She went up to the prize table at the very end and picked up a $100 value item - a certificate for the purchase of 5 raffle tickets for the $250,000 boat out in the parking lot.

The raffle drawing is not until next May. Would'nt it be ironic if the last place finisher at the 2008 Palm Beach Blue Storm Open were to win that boat? Stranger things have happened!

Congratulations Emily on making the list of PBO winners!

Re: 2008 Palm Beach Open Photos - the fantastic prize wall (literally) and ceremony!

With a 1 in 2500 shot, I have a pretty good chance.

Then there's luxery tax and gas to mention a couple of concerns...

If I win it, I'll figure it out.

Emily, check out this thread. The odds per ticket would be 1 in 12,500 which is still a whole lot better than Lotto odds.

http://www.spearboard.com/showthread.php?t=66816

While it may not happen, I believe the sponsor is trying to get a year's supply of fuel added into the prize package. Would'nt that be great?

FYI, Tony
