Raffle is now running

Post by JackGriffin » Sun Jan 27, 2013 10:57 pm

I've had a couple of discussions via email about the contest and I think for this one it will just be a simple drawing. That's fair for everyone, so let's roll with it.

The raffle is now open

Please reply here and I'll add your name to the list. Let's run this for a week and have the drawing on February 3rd. I'll place each name on equal paper tiles, stir them up in a bowl, and then draw a single winner. I'll do this live via skype and anyone who wants to watch can certainly do so. I'll record it too and place it on YouTube. The winner will then be shipped the disks the next day to enjoy as they wish.

Good luck everyone.
So long, and thanks for all the fish

Totally your call Jet. It doesn't matter to me who gets the games because I bought them with the intention of raffling them off. This isn't meant as a membership drive for UT99.org either. People are welcome to email me and add their names if they want:
agutgopostal@hotmail.com

This is really just a tryout to see if this is a viable way to stir interest in the game. If there's a good response then I certainly have more planned.
So long, and thanks for all the fish

I would say that it should be people that Need the discs (do not have them), or would win them for others that do not have the discs.

Well, what a thing Jack! Great stuff indeed!

I will put my name in for the Na Pali disk (slobber!!), but if chosen will happily re-raffle the UT CDs; as Hook said however, my not needing the UT CDs may make me ineligible, in which case, no worries.

Also, as you are all aware, I had some good luck with finding boxed UTs myself (Korean, but what the hey!) and Jack, I would be willing to throw a retail box into the raffle if you like. Your call or we can wait for another time, another raffle.

Again, a great thing to do mate! :rock:

You are so added Carbon.

I understand the reluctance to enter if you have disks but this is supposed to be a fun thing so enter if you have three sets already. One more isn't going to make difference to a new player somewhere getting lost but it sure might get people talking and interested (which is my aim here).

This contest is open to everyone, no restrictions. If you want a shot just reply.

Can I enter? :)
It would be neat to have my own copy instead of calling up my dad to try and borrow his if I need something.
Also I think it's really nice of you to hold this raffle!

Well than call me in! I will however, re-raffle the UT CDs in the unlikely event that I am chosen. Don't worry folks, I tend not to get chosen in these things (hence I never buy lottey tickets!) so having me in the draw is probably of no consequence.

Thnaks again for doing this Jack. fun stuff!

I'm sorry guys, I've been a bit under the weather. Our car had some problems and I've spent the last couple of days trying to get it fixed. You know, real life stuff.

So here is how we can decide the winner right now. I have sent a numbered list of the people asking to be included into the raffle to Creavion. Now I will ask Ferali to please select a number between 1 and 100 and reply with that number to this thread. Crev will take that number and apply it to the list and reply back with the person who that number lands upon. That will be the winner.

Thank you two gentlemen for helping with this. I wanted to do a live drawing but I'm just not up for it. This is just as good and no one could argue the truthfulness of either Crev or Ferali. They are about as honest as people can get.

Good luck everyone!

Well, a number between 1 and 100...
I picked my favorite numbers: 5, 8, 9, 13 and 88, and randomized them, and the final result is:

9


I have no idea who has this number (or any other), but whoever that is, congratulations. :tu:
