    Please regard the following as friendly advice. The proper noun form of the word "drawing" is draw, i.e. there will be a draw. Drawing in this context is a verb, and is therefore what you will do during the draw. Drawing as a noun generally refers to art, e.g. a pen and ink drawing.

    You might also wish to revised the link on the RonPaulBlimp.com website to specify "Ride Draw" or something similar. When I first saw the link it wasn't clear what it was.

    I bought a minute for the blimp, but I'm not entering myself in the drawing because I live too far away. Good luck to everyone else.

    I don't think that's correct:
    drawing (noun):
    the selection, or time of selection, of the winning chance or chances sold by lottery or raffle.

    Draw is the verb form of drawing, e.g., we will hold a drawing (lottery) and draw for prizes.

    I suppose it is a regionalism then. But that is the usage that I use and the one I normally see. Depending on the context both forms can be a noun or a verb in my experience. Obviously, usage varies.

    And, it was just a suggestion. Nothing more or less.

    "It is from numberless diverse acts of courage and belief that human history is shaped. Each time a person stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance." Robert Kennedy
