The first 40 clubs listed have been selected as grant winners, numbers 41-46 are alternates.  Should one or more of the first 40  decide not to purchase a goal, the alternates (41-46) will be offered the opportunity to accept the grant.  The offer will be in order of the draw starting with 41 and ending with 46.

Goal pick up locations will be detertermined based on where the majority of goals are purchased.  The expectation is that this will likely be Buffalo, Rochester, or Syracuse, and member clubs will be responsilbe for transportation from those central locations.    Clubs which do not win the draw or clubs that wish to order more than one set of goals may still be able to eligible for reduced shipping costs by taking advantage of the bulk discount NYSW will be able to obtain by shipping a number of goals to one location.

It is anticipated that the goals will be delivered to one of the 4 locations by April 1, 2008. When a delivery date is determined, NYSW will formally announce when and where the goals will arrive.
