We are, as the saying goes, off and running. Tickets are selling. We are generating more and more buzz. We're wrapping up final details with sponsors; our flashlights are on the way to be engraved - we have 12 extremely good flashlights

Now it's primarily a question of finding the time for me to get everything done, to keep existing processes on track, and to manage the fiduciary responsibilities. 

I'm also going to provide a "user guide to raffles" if you will - essentially a guide that outlines the different tasks involved in holding a raffle, from identifying an overall theme to finding sponsors to deciding on prizes, ticket costs, sponsors, and odds. This guide is largely what I've learned from puttting this raffle together.

Note: both systems come with a shirt, cap, and coffee mug.


The above pictures are of the WorkSharp prizes, which will be 4th and 5th place. The next pics to post will be a couple more of the Emerson, and then I'll dig into the top 2 prizes, the customized knives.


We have, theoretically, two weeks left. I suspect I'll extend that deadline; we have been impacted by a couple events involving credit card processing that were beyond our control and yet necessary to work through.

While that doesn't leave me happy, these items were critical; I think I handled them well considering.
