      2013 VKS Raffle Donations Thread

      This years Virtual Koi Show is fast approaching and so we’re reaching out to the Koiphen community for your donations of Koi related items
      for this year raffle! It can be about anything Koi/pond related, and when donating, you’re also agreeing to ship the item for free to the winner
      at the end of raffle in Jan. 2014.

      If you’d like to donate an item, you can post it here and feel free to include a picture if can, or if you’d like to remain anonymous or just don’t
      have time to post, feel free to pm or email me too.

      We all have Koi and pond items we've bought and then just never used, or things that we have used and no longer need, but they still have
      life left! So here’s your chance to clean out some clutter and at the same time, help support the Show!

      Thanks in advance!
      --Steve

      I have not been in on the calls, so please fill me in on how the raffle works. If its something I think we can raise money on enough money on, I will put something in. Just don't want to offer something that cost 2x and only get 1x in raffle tickets.

      Good question Jim...

      How it's been done in years past is the donations would be evaluated by the committee and if they were a higher value, for example a
      microscope or a filter, then it would be auctioned on it's own, and then smaller items would probably be grouped together into one raffle,
      and we'd have multiple winners in the one raffle.
      How much money is generated would be impossible to guess, but obviously would depend on how many tickets are sold.

      Here's a couple of more items that thought someone might like...

      Water Gardens by Roddy Llewellyn (Hard back)

      And I bought two of these but only used one... it's called a "Pond' Toon" and it's a little
      floating planter. It's made of Styrofoam base with a spot in the center for plants. It looks
      like the company went out of business, but I bought them from AES. It's sealed in the
      box, but here's a pic of the other one in my pond last year... it's surprising how much the
      plants will grow in the small area in the center!

      I am debating between an item and sponsoring a trophy or trophies. Not sure yet, is there a deadline for decisions?

      The committee hasn't discussed it specifically, but we'd probably accept donations
      up to the opening of the show on December 1st.

      Thanks Jim. The committee is meeting tomorrow night. Hopefully we can tie up all the loose ends.

      I was chatting with Max tonight and she will donate a book. The book is signed by James Patterson already. She will also sign it to the winner or a person of the winner's choice in case they intend to give it to someone.

      Thanks Max!

      Here's another goody I'd like to offer for our raffle...

      It's a AmScope M200 microscope. It's only been used a hand full of times and does great job and is powerful
      enough to find any bugs that we are most likely to see... I'll include some slides and slip covers too, so it
      should arrive ready to go!!

      That's a great idea!
      I thought I put a link to this one in Main, but moving the whole thing there is probably even better.
