Convention Raffle

The convention raffle is always a fun way to spend a few dollars with the chance of winning great prizes.


The raffle will be open starting Thursday afternoon and close Saturday afternoon at 4:30PM.  Winners will be posted just prior to the banquet and must pick up their winnings right after the banquet or make special arrangements.


The raffle will use the Chinese raffle format where you purchase a single sheet of tickets, all with the same number, that can be used any way you please.  One sheet of tickets will cost $5.00, or 5 sheets for $20.00.  The raffle tickets have been donated by the Rochester Knights of Columbus, Council 2048, Rochester, NH.


We have received a wide variety of prizes already including freight car kits and ready-to-run cars, craftsman structure kits, books, gift certificates, animated signs, modeling tools and more !!  The following individuals and companies have made donations so far, and we thank them for their support of the NER Convention:
