Are we mailed our actual tickets? That seems like it would be a nightmare.
Do you keep track of them for us. Exactly how does that work?

I am definitely going in on this but am curious about the little details.

Thanks,

Dan

Ed I faxed an invitation to SA, the special projects manager no longer works at SA who helped us out last year. I called SA on Fri I talked to the new mangers Secretary and was told they had received the fax and the manager read it. So I do have to give them some time, but we will have a pistol, I have not posted what my prizes are and depending on how things go I will pony up the money for a pistol and have that me my only prize. I will take care of keeping track of the tickets mailing them back out would be a nightmare, I would really like to post a list but last year people did not want to be on a list. So I think what I am going to do is call all of the buyers if they include a phone number, I have free long distance and this would be faster than an e-mail. I have also been asked if sponsors can participate.....yes I cant because I will draw names but other sponsors can buy and win prizes.

Are we limited to only one prize or can we win multiple with multiple entry's?

Thanks, RS

That's pretty optimistic thinking. I'd be happy with just one prize.

Since someone chimed in I will give my .02 as well. I say if someone wants to buy a bunch of tickets and they win more than one prize then more power to them. In fact if someone buys two tickets and wins two prizes then great.

It is the luck of the draw. Someone may buy 40 tickets and win nothing.....the overall goal is to raise money to recoup costs of operating this sight which we all frequent and love.

We are lucky that we get a chance to win some great stuff for helping out a forum that we all love...most just ask for donations.

I belong to many forums besides this one-

www.caraudio.com
www.bimmerforums.com
www.fullsizebronco.com
www.is300.net

to name a few.

To my knowledge none have done anything quite like this.

Thanks guys for doing something so great for all of us!
