Raffle Items

Postby blackpowderscout » Wed Dec 06, 2006 5:14 am

I've been told that Diamondback Airboats is donating a nice set of rudders to be raffled off on the 16th. I am donating a case of Aeroshell. If any one else has anything they would like to throw in for a raffle bring it and we'll make it happen.

From what I am hearing, it sounds like this one will be BIG!!! At least in terms of what's being put together to be sent off. :P

raffle

Postby basketcase0302 » Wed Dec 06, 2006 7:46 pm

Hey ya'll,

The rudders Diamondback's donating are custom airbrushed and would probably cost someone 3-4 hundred to have done.

Ms Wizard will be selling the raffle tickets early Saturday morning, (one buck a ticket). We will draw for the raffle items at 10 A.M. sharp.

This would be best to get everyone out on the water faster. Skeeter has said this will probably be a nice long ride so MsWizard and I will be there early to help with donations/packaging, etc.

Please advise if this OK with everyone :wink:

The raffle is simply to raise money to put towards this event....I have no clue what shipping will cost simply because I don't know how big this thing will be. So, the more money we have the better just in case. I am pretty confident that we will have a surplus of funds, in which case we will have to decide what to do with it....donate it to a worthy cause, buy more stuff, whatever. I have had several people contact me wanting to cover most if not all of the shipping the cost however I would feel real bad if the amount of donations was huge and the shipping cost ran way more than expected....

Cajun, the donations are for the care packages that we are putting together to send to the troops on Dec. 16th. We'll be meeting at Loughman Lake Lodge that morning and leaving to ride hopefully no later than 11:00 or so I'd guess. Skeeter knows the route.

BPS...Would you please refresh the list of "items needed". Also, I have seen no mention of single use digital cameras...wonder if those would be acceptable for getting pics of loved ones back home. Please, give us a few specific targets.

Is there any organized effort at lunch on the run or is it all BYOF?

We will have a spot for a soldier, sailor or Marine to ride on my boat.

We will be there.

I'll gladly accept and pick-up the bang stick for the event.

YEAH Big Daddy. I am happy you will make it there. As far as lunch I believe Skeeter talked to Loughmans and is having extra staff for that day so we can all eat there.

Thought I would get this back up top, plus can someone post an address to send stuff to? I'll see what kind of gator stuff is out there in the shop getting dust on it. Thanx, Cajun

Someone mentioned drawing for the raffled items at 10am. In my opinion that's a little early ..... some may not be arriving until about that time, and the longer you can run them the more money you'll bring in.

Good idea - it'd be a good reason to get everyone together after the ride.
And maybe sell a few last minute impulse raffle tickets.

Jeff - I like your idea (from one of the other threads) for a group photo too. That is long overdue.
All it takes is a minute or two of effort to gather everyone together. Then we have something to show.

Wow Jeff that is a good idea. I think we have yet to do that and I think that would be awesome!! I too think 10am is a little too early for the raffle to be done. There are alot of people coming from all over and I think we need to give them a chance to get there.

Mood,

Raffle will have to go down before the ride as I think our hosting club members S.C.A.C. might "high tail" it from the river back home. I just want to make sure everyone's there, (must be present to win) is gonna be our best bet. I agree 10 A.M. is early so we'll play it by ear and draw the winners right before we ride.

Please can we get a group picture organized :wink:

End results

Postby basketcase0302 » Wed Dec 20, 2006 5:26 am

Hey ya'll,

A lot of money was raised from the raffle/auction. For those of you who weren't there, the items included the following:

Rudders-Donated by Diamondback Airboats
Aerial map-not sure what area- Donated by Moodfood
Case of aircraft oil-Donated by BPS
4 Southern airboat t-shirts-donated by Rick and Teresa of course.
2 gift certificates to a restaurant? Rick and Teresa?

After buying 100 tickets,(Limey chris had 200) :shock: I won the case of oil/donated it back for raffle. I was the 3rd and final person to wind up with the rudders as Ms Wizard outbid someone by one dollar at the live auction.

The raffle was a huge success! I really hope we do another raffle in all our future events :roll:
