Good Dinner.  Nukeworker in my opinion had the best booth. Rennhack was a good Emcee for the night!! The raffle was great and at the end of all the vendors prizes,  Rennhack Dug deep and raffled off a Nukeworker bobblehead as the last vendor prize. 

Other prizes were a lap top computer, numerous 50 and 100 dollar gift certificates,  I can not remember who had what, except for the Nukeworker bobblehead!!!!

I had great sadness when I found out there was no Nukeworker booth at the 2009 ETCHPS vendors meeting.  I was hoping that my ticket would be pulled for the bobblehead. But alas it was not to be.  They did have one new booth that was good.  The Knoxville Rescue Mission which receives no goverment funds, but helps out  People with substance abuse problems, Feeds the homeless, takes care of mothers and children with no place to go.   I bet they had a thousand dollars in their basket  before the night was over.   The piano player they had was excellent and they went back to the draw from your own basket method for prizes.  All of these were improvements from last year!! This helped quell my sadness from my missed opportunity for a Nukeworker bobble head.
