This year, the volunteers will select prizes for each game based on what they have available and the number of guests present.  There will be both general prizes, where you can get more chances with cash donations to the scholarship fund, and the membership prize drawings for Co4NU current members.  The volunteers will also decide if they want to give members the opportunity to select which prize they want or to pull from all of the tickets for the prizes.
