    At each meeting, be sure the GANG Secretary has recorded your attendance, your e-mail address and the names and e-mail addresses of any new guests you bring.
    For each meeting you attend (January-June 2010) you will receive an entry into a drawing.
    For each new guest you bring to a meeting, you will receive an additional entry.
    A new guest is one who has not attended a meeting in at least 12 months.
    A new guest may be considered a guest of at most one member.
    Once a guest has attended a meeting they are no longer considered new; However, they may increase their own odds of winning by attending more meetings and bringing new guests of their own.
    No circular references allowed (aka, two new people can’t show up together and put that they were each referred by the other).
    A drawing will be held at the June meeting.
    The winner will receive a Zune HD, courtesy of Microsoft.
    You must be present at the June meeting in order to win.
