Smithton VFD Spring Gun Bash – Brought to you by Stoney’s Beer

Here are the general guidelines for our event.

The event will go LIVE from the Smithton VFD Facebook Live account at 2:45pm to go over the event layout and drawing times.

We will go live on Facebook Live to draw the winning numbers for the each gun or money prize printed on the ticket.

All prizes and times printed on the ticket will be drawn EXCEPT the 7pm Drawing (that was drawn on the April 4th PA Lottery Drawing)

In-between the drawing times we will sell sure tips for various Gun Rack Gift Cards, cash and possibly other prizes.

We will also be selling an ALL DAY 50/50

The paying options will be Venmo and PayPal ONLY

We will give exact accounts and pay instructions the day of the bash. Please follow these instructions so payments are received without any additional service charges.

After each drawing, the video and winning numbers will be posted to the Smithton VFD Facebook page and Smithton VFD Web Site.

Check back for additional information as we get closer to Saturday. If you have any questions, you can contact us through this page or email the department.
