  • Bash Raffle Idea (or... how to keep Randy from winning everything this year)

    Here's my thought.

    We will sell tickets like always (funds go to the ClanRam Retirement Home Building Fund). However, instead of a mere random drawing, we'll have a list of Rams trivia questions (I can prepare in advance). After each question is asked, those in attendance can (in a rotating order based upon where people are seated) "bid" to respond to the question (1 ticket, 1 guess). Get the answer right, win the prize. Get it wrong, go to the next seat and allow that person to bid/guiess (no ticket, no guess!)

    Of course, if Randy buys 50% of the tickets as usual, he'll have to eventually either give many of them away (has he has done in the past) or the game will become "grill Randy"!

    What do you think?

    Great idea, although I'm not sure there is any way to slow down the financial juggernaut that is BigRedMan.

          Although Randy is generous to a fault it does take some of the excitement out of the raffle, esp. for the first timers. ramgram

            Ummmmmmmm....so everyone would have more of chance to go up themselves to win something last year, I bought my usual $200 in tickets, but I gave away all the tickets to everyone at the BASH. I wasn't called up to receive one prize.

            Just so all the new comers know, yes, previously I would buy $200 of tickets each year, and yes I kept all the tickets and my name would be called for the prizes most of the time because of it. However, I gave away all the prizes as I won them.

            Since it appears to continue to be of such a concern, I guess I'll keep my wallet in my pocket this year.

              Come on now Randy, don't pout. Everyone is grateful for your VERY substancial support and extremely generous nature. And those that don't go to the Bash should know that Randy absolutely has a heart of gold underneath that gruff exterior.

              I think the intent here was to make the raffle a little more suspensful, that's all. If you choose to keep your wallet in your pocket, I certainly don't have a problem with that as you have done way more than your fair share in supporting this site. I would love to see the rest of us pick up the slack anyway as Dez has had some down times lately.

              On a more positive note, I still wear my bigredman designed "ClanRam Warriors Irish Brigade" shirt often and plan on sporting it in St. Louis at this years Bash Weekend!

                I for one am extremely grateful to Randy for all he does and hope he continues. I am just sad that I canny be there this year to see everyone and give the big guy a hug.

                    Randy is for sure the most gentle giant I have ever met. My daughter calls him Uncle Squishy. I will also sport my Irish Brigade T-shirt .

                    I still have a issue with him taking the window seat on the flight home however.:disapointed:

                      OK, Randy, I give!! My Irish Brigade shirt is just one more testament to your generosity & will be worn at some point at this year's Bash. Hey! There's an idea...Why don't we choose a specific time for those of us who have these shirts to wear them. Perhaps the Fri. night get-together? The Sat. shopping trip? What do you think, Randy?? ramgram

                        Friday night sounds good to me. Irish boiler makers are on me for anyone wearing the Irish Brigade T-shirt that night.

                          Wow, not only do I love the shirt design and showing it off, it's now going to pay BIG dividends! Could be the best investment I ever made.

                                by RamDez
                                First let me thank everyone who bought tickets for the raffle, Thank you so much.

                                The money raised will go towards ClanRams running costs and is very gratefully received.

                                Thank you all again

                                Second, I would like to thank Avengerram for organising the raffle and event. Thanks David, your a star mate.

                                I would like to thank RamGram for putting so many prizes forward and opening up her home as bash HQ, Thanks Carol-Ann and the meatloaf was bril.

                                And I would like to thank Alpha for donating the first prize again well done mate.

                                Although the bashes have been smaller of late (due no doubt to the Rams) I feel they are still a highlight of the season. Its great to meet you all and get chatting.

                                I have a few ideas for the next bash so lets hope the usual suspects can still make it

                                Can't Make the Bash? You can still participate in the Trivia Raffle! (Find out how!)
                                by AvengerRam_old
                                We've been having raffles at the Bash every year to raise money to help Dez run the website. Last year, I introduced a trivia challenge into the mix.

                                This year, I've come up with something new... I'll call it the:

                                Stump the Bashers Challenge

                                Here's how it will work.

                                1. Find the "donate" button on the toolbar above.
                                2. For every $5 you donate, you can submit to me (via PM) a True/False trivia question regarding the Rams or the members of ClanRam.
                                3. At the raffle, for each prize (Rams stuff), I will draw a question submitted by a ClanRam member.
                                4. I will then will pull a raffle ticket (purchased by the attendees at the dinner).
                                5. The holder of the ticket will be presented with the drawn question. If he/she answers correctly, he/she will receive the prize. If he/she answers incorrectly, the person who submitted the question will receive the prize (I'll pay for the shipping).

                                Start buying your "tickets" and submitting your questions now!

                                Bash Trivia Challenge (and the Grand Prize)
                                by AvengerRam_old
                                For those going to Jake's on Saturday Night, we're going to be doing a trivia raffle.

                                The rules are as follows:

                                Tickets will be $2.00, or 3 for $5.00. All proceeds will go to Dez to keep the site running.

                                I will pull tickets from a hat, and if your number is called, you will have the opportunity to answer a Rams trivia question for a prize. If you don't know the answer, a new number will be pulled, and so on, until the correct answer is given and the prize is won.

                                There will be several Rams items in the raffle (feel free to bring additional ones to donate to the cause if you'd like). I will be donating as the Grand Prize a home (blue) replica Aeneas Williams jersey (size: large).

                                Looking forward to Saturday night!

                                *URGENT* - Bash Ticket Update
                                by AvengerRam_old
                                I am trying to work things out with the Rams' ticket office, but it is proving to be more difficult than last year.

                                I am hoping that they will block some seats for us and allow each person attending to then buy their tickets. However, if they are willing to do that, it will likely be only for a short window (I've asked for a minimum of 7 days).

                                So...

                                Those wishing to attend the game need to stay tuned for an announcement that the tickets are available, and be prepared to buy their tickets during whatever window is offered.

                                As I previously have noted, there is a 100% refund guarantee in the (increasingly unlikely) even that the game is not played due to the lockout.

                                STAY TUNED!!!
