Title: Benefit raffle!
Post by: Captainkirk on July 17, 2019, 11:28:17 AM
Shotgun Dave is holding a benefit raffle on Colt Country to help raise funding for our new server. See URL below.
You DO NOT have to be a CC member to enter, as the benefit will be helping both Colt Country and 1858 Remington.

Title: Re: Benefit raffle! 2nd prize added!

Hey Fellas! I'm the new guy over here at the Remington board, but I'm a regular over at the sister board at Colt Country.

We're holding a raffle to help Smokey defer the costs of the upgrade. No reason he should have to carry that weight all by himself. We all benefit from our FREE membership here. Lets show our appreciation.

For a measly $5.00 raffle ticket, you could win this vintage powder flask, and help out a great cause!

So head on over to the Colt board and check it out. We've already sold 12 tickets, headed to our goal of 40. Just 28 to go. Please come help us out!!

A second prize has been donated to the raffle by one of our members, jaxenro. He graciously donated this NRA folding knife. So now you have two chances to win for your $5 donation. Thank you jaxenro.

No Sir, you have not missed it!

There really isn't an ending date per se. Just going until all the tickets are sold, to meet the goal. We currently have 18 tickets left.
