Gravel on all the back roads has been on the agenda for years. We get a little done now and then, but there just has not been enough funds to get it done.We will sell tickets $5 each, 6 for $25, or 30 for $100. The drawing will be held on one or all three Holiday weekends providing we  have enough for at least 1 semi load of CA 6 road mix (gravel). The Number drawn will have a choice of $600 Cash Or 1 year GC dues paid.   Tickets may be purchased at the office or send a separate check to GC with R.R. as the memo.   ALL RAFFLE FUNDS COLLECTED WILL GO STRICTLY  FOR THE USE OF GRAVEL ON DIRT ROADS.
