I suspect that the airwaves in and around the Twins Cities are buzzing about this already (but, alas, they are outside my range) and here is the deal:
The Minnesota Lottery is having a promotion that runs until October 19, in which you can send special tickets in through the mail (these are non-winning scratch tickets) or entering some numbers (sorry, not a big lottery fan here) in their web site and there will be a drawing for several Twins-related prices, including:
- Four-packs of regular-season game tickets in the new Target Field.
- Ballpark VIP section seats in the new Target Field.
- A suite experience for you and your friends in the new Target Field.
- Spring Training trips to Fort Myers, Fla., in 2010.
(that was cut and paste)
but, still, this is a cool promotion and even though I buy approximately 5 scratch lottery tickets a year (to put into Christmas stockings), I'd spent $5 bucks just for it (too bad that here in Pennsylvania this is not that applicable)
and those scratch tickets look mighty cool:
