    Sticky is an excellent idea and would be much appreciated !!



    Also many emails about the used pedal pigpile.....

    hold on to them for now,,,,,, we will do this more towards the end , and it should be fun, it will include all tickets so you will have many chances to pick up something if you dont get your original ticket item........


    and thanks for all the thanks !!! I may not have time to respond to everyone, but have certainly read and noted them and it warms my heart,,,,, but how successful this becomes has just as much to do with the bidders as the donators and workers..........bid on !!!

    Houston we have a problem.........


    Its been brought to my attention that:

    Apparantly 'Raffles' are a form of gambling and arent legal for private citizens without gambling liscense even if its for charity........

    Long story short.... the raffles are dead....

    all items will now be going to Auctions like before...

    I will figure out t he best way to return the donations already sent in, and you can use them towards the auctions if you like , or if you just want me to go ahead and give them to the Red Cross anyway let me know,,,,,,

    as soon as I figure out t he details Ill have more info.....

    Huge Apology - Obviously dont send any more donations to me..... :confused:

    Ok, I was able to give 100% refunds from Paypal so I did....

    I updated my site for the new situation ( you can see all the pedals that will be auctioned)

    http://www.tonesafari.com/id45.html

    I hope to start the auctions very soon..... as soon as I decide what the best route is ( any of you ebay geniuses have any suggestions ??)


    Sorry for the detour , thanks for hangin in there !!

    :cool:

    You could also do a "silent auction" through TGP where bidders submit their max bid amount on each pedal. Winners are then picked based on their max bids.
