This is Greg Keefe, the guy who runs Billy's website/fan club. I usually tried to settle misunderstanding by way of e-mail and to be honest I've only had two counting this one in six years. Since this was started on the public message board I feel I must respond publicly.
The contest in question took place during the summer of 1999. If you e-mailed your address we put you on a list in the numerically order your e-mail was received in. We got in around two hundred entries, so your chance of winning was one in two hundred. Then I asked Billy to pick a number between one and two hundred. I believe he picked fifty-three which was was a girl from Memphis. The winner was to be announced in the chat room, and the times were given on the front of the web site as to when I would be in the chat room. The first time around because of the time differences people all showed up at difference times. We then reschedule and the second time three people showed up.
The contest never at anytime was set up to give everyone who showed up in the chat room a prize. Some of the people who came were up-set that they didn't win. So I asked them to e-mail their mailing addresses to me and I'd see what I could do about getting them information on joining the club. I'm sure Billy would have been happy to send a photo too. I never got the addresses from anyone and they haven't e-mailed in anyway since.
Fourteen dollars a year is the cost of the membership kit that we gave away..... I don't think that's a lot of money..... Especially if you are that big a fan of Billy!!
Bottom line.... I run this site and do what I do for Billy. He's been a great friend to me over the years and I think he is going to do great things in his acting career. Believe me I don't make money of memberships. This site cost around $1000 a year to keep on-line... I'd have to sell alot of photos to make that up.
Please feel free to e-mail or post.
