Unitron 10x50 binoculars
Donated by: Land Sea & Sky

The winner of the Unitron 10x50 Binoculars, donated by Land Sea & Sky of Houston, was Donna from Santa Fe (TX). She was attending Astronomy Day with Pack 646 and Troop 628. Just before going into the Research Dome for her observing session, she waved her long string of door prize ticket stubs and stated that she was going to win the binoculars. When the winning number of 806976 was called, Donna stuck her head out of the dome and presented her winning stub! The binoculars will be used for a raffle fundraiser by the scouts on November 18, 2011. Congratulations to Donna, Pack 646 and Troop 628. Good luck with your fundraiser!
