Sounds like a great deal. My chances are better than if this was just a raffel. I think I might get somebody to help me write my essay!

This comment is from my friend Christine Rhodes, who is also the Cochise County Recorder:

As both a governmental official and a long-time and dear friend of the property owners, I must take this opportunity to support and encourage participation in this great, rare and genuine opportunity!

I have not been able to verify on the site if the house essay contest deadline of March 17, 2008 is for the essays to be received or the postmark deadlline.

I read the following on one link of the site:
"If the minimum requirement of 2,750 entries are not received by the contest deadline of March 17, 2008, all entry fees will be returned to contestants without interest, postmarked no later than 14 days from contest end."
But, on another page it said to be sure that your entries are postmarked by March 17th. And, of course if they are postmarked March 17th they would not arrive until at least a day later, and depending on where they are sent from it could take days.
I believed in this contest, so this is disheartening.

I agree that the wording could have been clearer there.

First - We have had tons of entries coming in so - so far so good !

We are looking forward to giving our home to the winner.

We will allow a full business week to receive all entries that may have been mailed out on Monday and then in the unlikely event we don't have enough we would sending peoples money back.

We wanted to make sure a rule was set in place for people to get their money back in a very timely manner if this did not work.

Thanks and good luck!
