Those things are great. I brought mine - just in case - and left jumper cables behind.

Re: So, who won what at the raffle?

Excellent summary Moose. All great suggestions.

I toyed with the idea of suggesting prices on tickets be raised to reduce number of tickets but keep the money raised approximately the same. $5 per ticket or something like this. The odds would stay the same because people would spend the same (theoretically). The issue I guess would be risk of reducing impulse buys. I think people are more likely to say 'what the heck... give me 4 tickets for these 4 bucks instead of giving me change'. Not sure they are as likely to say 'here's a dollar, add it to my change and give me 1 raffle ticket'. This could inadvertently reduce the amount raised.

windex is your friend .....
having wheeled with OC, he would stop, for no apparent reason, grab his trusty bottle of windex, squirt n clean and apply a new sticker at the drop of a hat, or as he received each new sticker, slowed the trails down greatly ...

Never slowed anything- we were always left behind as tailgunner

i agree with many of the prior statements. Starting the dinners earlier would stagger some of the times that people would be lined up for food. Those who ran later or longer runs may not get back to town until after 5:00 which would allow for others to already be eating and making room for those who got in line later and decrease the overall length of the line at any given time.
Also having the raffle on thur. Or fri. Night would allow people enough time the next day to either install their new winnings on their rig or try to find a buyer/trader for things they don't want/need. Plus it may help the vendor business out because if people are waiting on the raffle to see if they win something specific and they don't get it then they may be inclined to go to a vendor booth and buy one outright. By the time the raffle ends saturday the vendors are are all packing up to go home. Just my 2 pennies.

Re: So, who won what at the raffle?

spotters would have to be those who did not buy raffle tickets.

otherwise, they are too busy checking their own!

Now, putting names on tickets and ending the free for all to scan tickets, and race to claim could be eliminated with a better way to announce winners. The odds of someone buying tickets and not being present has to be pretty dang small.
In addition to the PA system what about adding a visual way to announce the ticket number as well.

And, instead of 'burning' the ticket. place it aside and come back to it later if not claimed. No need to keep pushing the same raffle item. This gives people time to claim.

Surely, there must be a way to bring the 21st century into the process.

Re: So, who won what at the raffle?

I've scanned through this thread, here's an idea. Why not sell ten times less tickets, at ten times higher cost - so sell each ticket at $10 rather than $1? You could still do the deal for spending $100 - i.e $100 gets 11 tickets instead of the current 110.

Stats/chances of winning remain the same as at present.

Benefits:
Same value sold for the organization, but less ranges and stuff to check.
The organizers wouldn't keep running out of tickets on the last day and have to scramble for other ones.
Could even have all tickets the same color! Sucks beating on directors because of the magnetic orange tickets coming out when all yours are white!

Anyone think of any down-side?
