            Maybe... If it were a very large jackpot and there was some kind of party there, then yeah, I suppose so.

              you don't get invited to witness a drawing you have to call them and ask to be a witness.

              I've seen the balls many times as i worked for a company which did work for the place that makes lottery balls.

              there is nothing special about them. They are ping pong balls which have silk screened numbers and several coats of clear lacquer on them.

              Numerous times i have asked the place that makes the lottery balls if i could have a set of lottery balls and was flatly refused.  The only lottery balls i have actually seen were encased in a solid cube of clear plastic as a display item.  

              I wouldn mind taking the lottery drawing tour if i could see the whole process from the start time where the weigh, measure and inspect the balls run pre test and conduct the live drawing. 

              Big John says. You don't hit the number. The number hits you!!!!

                             I'm not Big John, I'm Four4me, Big John's a friend.

                Not sure what you mean, Mike.  Invited by whom?  Would they pay for my gas/tolls meals & overnight accommodations?  Would I be compensated for time off from work or receive a gift of some kind? Some of us live hundreds of miles from the state capital where the drawings are usually held.  Tallahassee is over 650 miles (roundtrip) from here.

                I already contribute enough money to the Lottery and would find no honor or sense of duty in being a witness. I don't get excited looking at ping-pong balls unless they have my 6 numbers on them.

                  My question is...if I am a witness...would that mean I am not allowed to play?

                    Good question, Sir Metro!  Usually that is the rule.  So my answer would be "absolutely not."  I mean, what if your numbers finally came up that night?  I think there would be an investigation if a witness to a drawing won $15 million.  (which I plan to do in the comfort of my home Sat)

                      HA!  Good one, Mike.

                      In answer to your poll, yes I would go if Linda Kollmeyer was pulling the balls.  What?

                          I'm not sure how to answer that, lottomike. I would like to go, but don't want to be excluded from the draw. So, I said "not sure."
