Point well taken. We've always called it a raffle, but in actuallity it
is a cake trade. Boys make the cakes, are given a number, and
then a number is drawn from a hat to see which cake goes home with
which boy. There are no ticket sales or anything of that sort.
The contest will have a new name next year.
