As stated above, phone the person to whom you mailed the prediction with the reminder to bring the envelope to the show. Tell the person to expect to come on stage with the envelope.
Obtain a copy of that day's newspaper and select the headline you are going to predict. Write your prediction on an 8 1/2" x 11" sheet of paper. Do not make it a word-for-word repeat of the headline. Just give the general sense of the headline. For instance, if the headline reads, "Election Supervisors to Purge Names," you write, "Names of Non-voters To Be Removed From Rolls By Supervisors." Insert the prediction in the dated duplicate envelope and affix an adhesive backed gold notary seal over the clasp. On the newspaper page, circle the headline you have predicted.
