Raffle: Guess the Age of Wharton's Leaning Oak

The infamous leaning Oak tree that sat next to Wharton's Garage and Workshop was taken down this November. Sadly, this was necessary due to a disease the tree contracted. Currently, some slab cuts have been left out and participants in the raffle can guess the age of the tree. The winner's guess will be closest to the curators confirmed number. The winner will receive a free T-shirt and Holiday Notecard pack.
