Raffle at Slims for Splattttttt (with paypal option) Now with CCM, DBD AND CCI!!!

Folks, so far, because of your extreme generosity, we have raised $1170!!!! Thank you!!!

We will still be selling tickets at the event tonight and tomorrow.

Based on popular demand, the raffle will be broken into two drawings. One at lunch for smaller stuff (CCM, case of paint and maybe some more stuff) and maybe a gun or three, and then the big drawing after the game for the really nice stuff.this will allow people to maybe use some of the stuff they win at lunch in the afternoon session. And keep the afternoon raffle shorter so people can get home. I won't be there for the lunch drawing so please be kind to Wade or anyone else who helps him out. Take pictures for me.

As some of you may have heard, long time member splattttttt has undergone surgery and the start of treatment for throat cancer. There is currently a go fund me campaign going to help his family offset some of the medical costs.

If you can, it would mean a lot to myself and many long time members who personally know Jack, if you could throw money at the campaign.

As an alternative, if you are going to be at APE for Slims Stock class classic, I will be selling tickets to raffle off a pretty cool package. And guess what this changed!!! See the bottom of this post for prizes!!!

Tickets will be $10 each. All money will go to Jack. I will also have a card that people can sign.

For those that can not make the game, you can pm me for my paypal address to buy a ticket. Ticket sales via PayPal end Friday May 18. But, you must pay shipping if you win something. I don't want to use the raffle money towards shipping... and it's sound like there will be more than one prize. So as long as you are willing to pay for shipping, I will sell you ticket/s. I will pm you with your ticket numbers. Also, so my account doesn't get shut down, when you PayPal me, just say it's for splattttttt or Jack. Don't mention Raffle. Also, send the money as a gift/money to friend. Again you have until 11:59 PM Friday May 18 to buy tickets with PayPal. I need some time to organize things so I can sell tickets in person Saturday night.

I appreciate your generosity.

Thank you in advance.

WAtch this space for pics of Raffle Prizes.

We have almost $2000 in prizes (including at least ten guns!!!!!) committed at this point for this. I have received almost $800 in ticket money and cash donations. Lets support Jack!!!

CCM has donated 5 Pump kits, 5 pump handles( black long and short, clear, blue and yellow) what looks to be a frame (it's wrapped), a couple of bolts, an internal parts, bottomline adapter, clamping feed neck and some other things!!!

Crap. Jack is a really cool guy and I hope he fights through this mess.

I've never used gofundme and am a little weirded out by it for no good reason. Is there someone I can Paypal for raffle tickets? If I were to win something either keep it or I'll pay for shipping.

I'm going to look into having people PayPal me for tickets. If someone non local wins they just wouldn't get the booze.

Been visiting Jack daily and he is making good progress. He's been in the hospital for 1 week as of today, and hopes to be going home this weekend if progress continues. He's a tough dude, and soldiering through, but it's a long road ahead and I'm sure he appreciates all the well wishes and support.

Dang. I wish I could donate but I'm dead broke. Splattttttt is basically the sole reason why this place became my internet home.

He is a very generous guy who invited us into his home for a big meal after a great day playing with open generosity. I am definitely in for two of us for the raffle at Slims with cash in hand.
