Also in, but on the Thank You screen, it said thanks for your $0 contribution, so maybe you'd better check if it actually went through...

Last Raffle??

Here's something that struck me last night.

Let's say I just wanted a chance at the bike and I wait until it is truely up for auction, for keeps.

Suggestion, draw from all entries over all donations and give everyone who donated at any given time a chance to win.

If you go with the "one entry per auction" then that would give those who entered more often a better chance, thus, encouraging others to donated more often??

Done, but I neglected to put the raffle thing in the comments. I fully expect to win though, so please reserve the bike for keepontruckin at gmail.com and get a white fender.

Yeah yeha yeah... But does that mean the final time for the life of the bike? or the final time for this event?

Les, I think you need to settle this... If it is your intention to have a final owner at the end of this, I really like bombers idea above.

Bomber, you got any ideas for the name of this team in 09?
