I miss the days of page monitoring Jim’s store to for these but things change. Sure seems Jim , Aj and welker have a lot more time to art and spend less time dealing with all this bs.
You're right, Mondo doesn't do these BS 1/70 chance lotteries where the real winners are those with a ton of friends and fam who help enter for them.
So when ya inevitably whiff on a straight drop what would ya say?
Bot not good enough? :P

Hey Joe, can you post in here when the emails have gone out? With only a 15 minute checkout period, none of us want to miss that elusive "you've been selected" email.

Thank you!

Give them a follow on twitter, they post updates about when the emails are going out.

Seriously have been sitting here for the last hour and a half picking winners. I would say 3/4 of the winners have never purchased from us before.

All emails have went out and all have been purchased

Not really? We rarely do these lotteries and when we do its 1/4 of the entries we received for this today. This one obviously was more high profiled amongst the Phish scene and yea of course if they got friends and family to enter thats fine. As long as it isn't a duplicate of themselves, its a fair entry.

Phish posters are like subway trains, they come along every few minutes it seems.

What that you feel entitled to a print because you love the band and you didn't get picked and someone else did, don't worry next week or month there will be another must have Phish poster, and you will have the same complaints about that drop/lottery too.

Not really, a lot of Phish fans fudge on Hampton because of the over bearing police presence there, hotels have cracked down on the parties and it's located in a ghetto. Probably the reason why they chose Hampton to do the Pollock was because they knew there would be tickets in the tree that weekend. It did end up being a great run though.
