Reminders about the Rules
There is a link to the Block Lotto Basics on the home page.
I also include the link in the email I send to everyone who expresses interest in joining the Block Lotto.
It’s not a long list and yet a couple of the rules never quite seem to stick with everyone.
If things don’t seem to be working the way you expect, please take a moment and review the basics. I have updated the page with the acceptable range of block measurements for this year’s blocks and a more explicit statement about posting photos of your blocks in a blog post authored by you in order to count in the drawing.
I know it seems a small thing to those of you who expect me to post/count your blocks for you, chase you down when you win, or chase the blocks you fail to mail … and if the Block Lotto were my JOB, I might agree. I do this for fun and there are already quite a few tasks to keep things humming month after month. If you are unwilling to follow the rules, figure it out and do your part (including making blocks that others will be happy to win), then the Block Lotto may not be the group for you.
