    I know they must be a major pain in the butt to organize. I always look forward to it, though.

    From what I recall about past raffles. Its a PITA to set up. Eric has to go to all the vendors and ask for free stuff, then set it all up, deal with folks who can't get "cart" to work. Enter wrong credit card #s from back, change e-mail and want numbers sent to another account.......
    Then folks complain...
    I personally liked them. I "won" a book (that I had two copies already autographed by author. (Thanks Mathew B)
    If he does one I will buy a few tickets. Another idea (to make more work for Eric) is offer a 2nd raffle. Folks who "won" first one but its a item they really don't want/need can gift it back to GT. Eric can either sell them/do quick raffle.

    I won a couple of car lock boxes a few years back, still use the one my ex didn't make off with.

    I always buy a couple of tickets.

    I, too, miss these. I've participated in three, maybe more. Only won once, but it was a G-21, so can't complain.

    Same, I've only bought tickets a couple times, but for Chad, I'd buy some again.

    I won a $100 custom holster of my choice a couple of years ago. Think I was a handful of numbers off from winning a gun last year if I recall.

    I've never had the money to participate in years past, but fortune has it, I could've this year, and have been waiting for the banner to come up.

    I'd be in for a Chad fundraiser. I'd be in for a GT fundraiser too, but I like the Chad one the best.
