SWAT Raffle Details

This year's SWAT raffle is called a "3 for 1" or "three for one"... however you would like to call it. 

The first opportunity to win something is at the opening ceremony on Friday morning.  Isn't that exciting?!  The winner will receive a midi lathe or an Arrowmont scholarship.  

The second raffle is at the banquet Saturday evening.  This opportunity will include approximately 30 pieces of gorgeous art.  

The third and final raffle will be held on Sunday at lunch.  This raffle will be for tools, wood, a scholarship to Arrowmont and ... yes ... LATHES!
