Christmas Month Giveaways!

Each week of the month of December we are going to be having a giveaway for all of the people that order their nucleus colonies this month. There will be one thing given away each week so your chances are very good for winning because some weeks I only get one order and if that is the case that person wins. Other weeks I get five which is still a 20% chance and that's a little better then any lottery I have ever played. For each nucleus colony ordered your name goes into the draw. So if you order one your name goes in once. If you order two you name goes in twice and so on. The draw will be made every Friday and I will post the name of the winner and when you come to get your nucleus colony in the spring you will receive your prize. (unless you want it earlier then you can come pick it up)

"THE PRIZE FOR THIS WEEK IS A STANDARD SMOKER."
