i got another raffle idea?...your thoughts?

remember this has to be some kind of universal item ALOT of people can use...kinda like the helmet, and i am gettin stumped with idea's.


i did think about for a chance for 99 people to win a 500.00 gift certificate from 4&6, or go again for merchandise.

what do you guys think?

or maybe go with the gift certificate, like 7.00 bucks (+ pay pal fee) to win 500.00 worth of work.



whats your guys idea, and remember if you dont like mine dont be like...lets raffle off a motorcycle, not many of us can afford the 500.00 buy in fee....lol

Sounds good but i like the idea of little raffles. Gloves/boots/ and or a stand for the bike. This way its a small price for the item and a small raffle cost. Or lets say the bike stand is 100.00 and we can say the ticket is 5.00 knowing that the proceeds will be used for a summer party or for t-shirts something like that.


Or lets raffle off a motorcycle!

You can never have too much high-quality safety gear. I'd vote for another helmet, or a top-quality back protector (such as a Bohn Pro-Racer) or maybe a pair of Oxtar or Sidi boots (okay, Oxtar's because they make racing boots for my girlie feet).

Or, how about a track day/school gift certificate? A set of tires maybe?

I'd go with the gear idea. Never have enough of it, almost everybody has an interest in it. It's getting towards spring (someday ), so maybe a lighter textile/leather mesh jacket would be best.

It may take a little bit of the fun out of the raffle, but what about a gift certificate to the parts dept of a shop, possibly Woodfield, for $500 where you can order up whatever you want. If you need ten small items vs. say a $500 Helmet, its your choice.

Plus Labdog may be onto something with part of the proceeds going to a party

I'm down with the idea of gear again, perhaps another helmet or a jacket. Of course some of the proceeds would have to go torwards a CLSB party fund.

Safety gear is always a good giveaway. Something everyone needs but won't necessarily buy.

An XR50 is only about a grand.

Someone said tires but not everyone agrees on brand.

I'd be willing to try and win gear or a gift certificate. Helmets, jackets, pants never get old to raffle off. I really like the free track day, though, that's actually the cheapest thing to raffle off.

My thoughts would be to get lower priced items $500 or less. Let the tickets cost more than the total price of the item. Allow some of the proceeds to sponsor the site. Yet build a little stash. Use this stash in the future on a much larger prize. Thus keeping the ticket price down as we dont have alot of people who would participate at the higher ticket price.

Example= Raffle prize = to $500
have 60 tickets at $10 each raising $600.
Put $50 to the site and $50 to the kitty.
Do a couple auctions until you can get $500 in the kitty and then have an austion for an XR50, for example. Ticket price would be about $10-$15

That all said, Gift certs work great as it might generate more ticket sales. Reason being people like me who just bought a new helm over the off season wouldn't want to buy into a raffle for a new helm.

Hey, I have Sidi's, and my girlie feet are a euro 37, men's size 4.

I'd love to have an Oxford humpback tail pack. Gift certificates and track days are also great ideas!

I gave Tony this idea before.

We could have one big auction a year like at Jims annual bbq or something.

You can sell the tickets and when we get there write all possible ticket numbers on a board and have all possible numbers in a hat as well. Right off the bad we draw 1/3 of the numbers. Those that are left are free to sell or buy remaining tickets on an open market. This way it is possible to get your money back for the tickets in the first round and maybe profit in the second or third. You stop trading when everyone is happy and draw the second 1/3. Repeat open trading again...stop it and draw the last 1/3. The final ticket to be drawn wins the prize.

It's a little complicated but easy to do. It gives people an opportunity to buy into the auction at any time and also gives people an opportunity to profit from the tickets they bought without even winning the prize. Besides it's pretty fun.

If your interested I could head this up and explain it. For you gambler guys it should be a blast.

Something small like what crazy said, a shift indicator, things like that so we could do raffles often (like every other week) and it wouldn't cost that much to get a ticket, like $3 or $4. I think a lot of small raffles would exceed the money made in a few big ones.

I'd say a Gift Certificate for someplace that sells gear and stuff so you can buy what you want.

I still think gear would be better, if not atleast get some gold 100 spoke rims and silver trim and old english letters for your bike... Give your bike that 26th street makeover it deserves

I think a gift certificate would be a cool idea. Don't really need to much gear, but a leather jacket would be nice.
