    lol i completly agree!!!!

    the raffle idea is excellent, but i think you over estimate the # of gungho members on this site.
    Yes, there are a butt ton of members, and a very big group of dedicated members, but not "thousands of dollars" type numbers here
    :P
    having the raffle tickets at like $5 or maybe $10 isn't bad though, and would still generate a good amount of money for the website.

    I like the bobblehead/shirt/jersey idea too :P

    Re: How about a PP.O Raffle?

    wow.....this could be very difficult, and possibly border on the illegal.

    Collecting the money would be a challenge.
    Everything would have to be paypal obviously.
    Not sure about the legaltities....anyone know a good, reputable lawyer

    Anyway, I think shrinking it down a bit to more of just a 50/50 with the drawing held on the first of the month for the previous month.
    That would be easy, no gifts to exchange, and you buy as many chances as you want.


    It may be difficult to manage though, especially if one buys 5 tickets one day and 4 a couple of days later.
    Could turn out to be a lot of wor

    Thats my 2 cents

    With as many young members as we have here on the site, how many of them would actually be able to afford the $5 or $10 for raffle tickets on a regular basis. I think you might find you will have less members willing to participate in it than you think.

    I can't recall exactly how many people signed up for my "Great PP.O Giveaway" & that was free. One would think you might have less yet in the raffle.

    Add a poll to this thread to find out exactly how many people would be honestly willing to take part in this & you can base what action to take on the results.

    Screw that! I'd rather invest in a raffle for a TNT Bobble doll.

    Yeah for those of you that missed the singersp giveaway, I feel bad for you, that was a great giveaway from one of the greatest members on this site!

    I agree I don't think I could even be putting in 5 or ten bucks say a week for a raffle and I make a pretty decent living.

    This may take time, but we have an interesting start and some pretty good ideas thus far.

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