By Peggy Kelly Santa Paula TimesThe Aviation Museum of Santa Paula knows a good thing when they see it, and they’re counting on 1,200 people who share that insight with the raffle of a classic 1947 Stinson Voyager or, if the winner prefers, $20,000 cash. Raffle tickets for the blue beauty with the gold trim are now on sale at only $100 each, and the “odds can’t be beat,” according to AMSP Board President Judy Phelps.“The odds are pretty cool - one in 60 of matching the purchase price of a ticket” through the August 3rd Early Bird drawing, with prizes ranging from eight winners of $100 each, two cash prizes of $250, and the big one of $500. The final drawing for the Stinson Voyager - valued at $25,000 - will be held September 7, and aside from the grand prize of the airplane or cash, runners-up will also be big winners: the second place prize is $5,000, third place $2,000, with seven cash prizes of $250.The Stinson 108-1 Voyager, a four-place plane, has an Franklin 6A4-150-BB, 141.82 SMOH engine and a package of Narco instruments, including the Comm 810, Nav 825, ID-825, AT-150 and AR-850.
So keep an eye out for the Aviation Museum of Santa Paula Raffle brochures with the color photo of the Stinson 180-1 Voyager. The vintage airplane, or plenty of cash, can be yours for the taking while showing support of the museum.For more information, visit the AMSP website www.amszp.org and click on “Raffle.”
