    hey guys, figured i would ask here since many of you probably know more than a floridian, but is this lottery goign to allow proxies to pick up bottles for them or does the winner have to be present to get the bottles?

    Thanks for any info!

    You have to put hyphens in the phone number I think. It wouldn't work on my signup either without them.

    Hey,
    I will be in St. Louis the week of May 19-23 for work and was thinking of entering the lottery. If I'm selected, is there anyone willing to be my proxy and meet up that week for an exchange?
    Thanks for considering!

    If anyone in MN, or somewhere on the way between St. Louis and the Twin Cities, needs a trustee, I can help. Send me a message if your name was selected and you can't make it to Perennial.
