    How about a PP.O Raffle?

    I PMed Webby the other day, but haven't heard back.
    Just thought I'd guage the interest in something like this.
    Maybe the mods can help me tweek this idea.

    I was looking at the Support the Pride thread when it suddenly hit me: why not have a monthly or bi-weekly raffle?
    Each member could buy as many tickets as they wanted with half the proceeds going to the running of this site and the other half going to the prize pool.

    Prizes could include:

    Tickets and airfare to games
    Super Bowl package
    Pro Bowl package
    Vikings Jerseys and other gear
    Cash
    Etc.

    I know I'd love the chance to win tickets to a game living way up here in Alaska.
    With all the members we have, I would think we could raise a few grand every week in raffle tickets.
    Having an activity like that may even bring us more members.
    I don't know, I just think something like this would be very cool and make the best fan site on the net that much cooler.

    Rock out with your cock out!!!

    Re: How about a PP.O Raffle?

    sounds like a great idea, but i hink your expectations are very high. a superbowl package would be just out of the question, probably same with a pro bowl package.
    I could see jerseys and tickets and shirts and stuff like that working, but I highly doubt that we'll be able to raise enough money to cover the cost of superbowl tickets, airfare and accommodations, never mind giving any money to Webby on top of that.
    As great as the PP.O community here is, and as generous as the people are, It will be tough.

    Lets say for example a trip to the superbowl worked out as this:
    1000$ for the tickets (thats being generous, probably much much more)
    $500 for airfare
    $200 for hotel

    we'd need to get at least $1700 in tickets to break even, much more to make any profit.
    and people aren't going to shell out that much money each week.

    Mabye a 50/50 draw or something like that could work.
    Plus you could get the theory where they'll say
    "hmm... i'm not actually seeing anyone do the draw, how do i know the person that won did not simply pay off Webby to call his name?"


    Although as a way of encouraging donations to the site, you could set up something similar to a PBS Fund Drive, where if you donate 100$, you get a bobblehead, if you donate 200$, you get a shirt, if you donate 500$ you get a jersey, etc.

    just my $0.02

    I should have clarified that tickets and bowl packages would not be necessarily bi-weekly.
    If the raffle brought in enough money to do that, sweet, but not likely.
    The people in charge of the raffle would have to determine when there is enough money to raffle off the big prizes.
    Each raffle ticket you but would give you a chance at the next ticket package.
    Once that package is gone, you'd have to buy another ticket to try and win the next big prize.
    The Pro Bowl and Super Bowl packages would obviously be a once a year deal, so that is easy enough to set aside money from each raffle for each package.
    It would be interesting to see how much each raffle brought in.

    also, it will be extremely hard getting
    superbowl tickets, and unless someone wins the superbowl ticket lottery, they will be very VERY expensive, far more than this site would be able to bring in

    And who wouldn't donate to PPO to get a customized Webby bobblehead, complete with vest?

    Sounds like a good idea to me! I should raffle off my football cards! Half the profit could go to the site, the other half to pay off my credit card which is piling up due to purchasing too much vikings stuff

    I get the most pissed off looks from people with my VKG 4 LFE Wisconsin license plate, and I LOVE IT!!
