Raffles are immensely popular.  They sure help a lot in allowing us (the club) to bring in cool speakers.

However, there are MANY members that can't make it to meetings.

Could we occasionally, have a raffle item (preferably a nice one) where the raffle tickets can be bought through the "WMAS Store"?  We could give the winner, 2 weeks to pick it up, after which, we select a new winner.

I think something like this could bring in a LOT of needed cash for guests (or replace equipment).  It would also be a nice benefit for members that can't come to the meetings.

It might also get more "publicity" to the WMAS Store.

Is an on-line raffle legal in Utah?

Great idea.  I am a paid member and have not been able to make it to a meeting.  My schedule is pretty full and it never seems to work out when meetings come around.

I'm all for raffles and winning prizes.

Here is what a customer said while on hold Oh my gosh! Did you open the door? I told you not to open the door. Dre is in here completely naked and he's got freak'n Macaroni and Cheese in his hands.
