Just Won Powerball!!! Half Billion Dollars!! I'm Buying!

had a day dream that i just won the mega-million powerball lottery for a GAZILLION dollars!! even after taxes i still have a couple million left so i'm buying.

this summer going to have a snowblower convention here in Reno or Lake Tahoe. All expenses paid for Snowblowerforum.com members.

Flights, lodging , eats, everything paid except for gambling, blow , and strippers.

This is for member, wife , and kiddies. then to top it off , we'll go down to the dealership of your choice and you can pick out any blower you want and we'll ship it out to you.

Nice sunny day for a daydream. Now i'll have to buy a ticket to make it a reality.

That's a great dream.

Sno-Tek Modded, 15"X-Track tires (Now has same X-Track tires but 13"x4" for better fit), 254cc engine LED light and hand warmers.
Snapper 6/22 sold but not forgotten. Was my first.
Ariens ST1027LE workhorse and going strong.
New 2017 Ariens Deluxe completely rebuilt after losing a fight with a forklift.

It's a lucky dream, and a generous one! Thanks I'll start browsing the current offerings...

Just a thought, if you did it in the winter, people could also test out their new machines Of course, sadly, in all likelihood, we'll all *also* have to be dreaming to attend the convention, so each person can decide if they want to pick out their theoretical blower in theoretical summer, or theoretical winter.

After I win I'm putting a cover over the pool so I can be out there in the winter and I'm having all the sidewalk and driveway torn up and installing heating cables. No more worries.

Make sure the windows are up before the snow plow goes by !!

So.... with everything heated, how will you get to use your snowblowers?
