The donation of the better prizes has really gotten weak, those used to be a good draw, remember when there used to be things like trips to Hawaii, or other good destinations, big screen TVs, nice computers and other higher end stuff, now most seem to be 10 and 20 dollar gift certificates and so on.
Seems like the prize donations are dropping as is the attendance and duck sales, pretty obvious direct link between the two.

the level of publicity has been ramped up considerably, this is the mark of something that is starting to lose popularity, is that more attention is devoted to advertisement and circus than to getting better prizes
