#201 6 years ago
Quoted from pinmaniac:

Any update on when the drawing will be?

website said 31st at 3am

#202 6 years ago

Don't think so... I doubt they will pick names at 3 AM. It also says the tickets are available on 1/25 which doesn't make any sense.

Besides, it states we will get an email with the drawing details and I've yet to hear anything.

Im sure we'll hear something soon.

#203 6 years ago

Yes .. I'm getting all the info from the rallyup service and we're making sure everything is accurate.
Thank you everyone for your patience,
-joe

#204 6 years ago

Anyone herd anything ?

#205 6 years ago
Quoted from 2Kaulitz:

Anyone herd anything ?

Not yet. Website says the draw was last night at 3 am, but that doesn't seem right. I haven't gotten my email confirmation yet, plus who would do a draw at 3 am?

#206 6 years ago

this is the first time joe is using the rallyup website for the drawing. im guessing there may be a learning curve or some challenges with the new site and Im sure he just wants to make sure every I is dotted and T is crossed before the drawing is finalized.

hang in there. we are all excited for the next drawing, im sure joe is working hard to get this thing wrapped up!!

#207 6 years ago

Sorry for the delay.

I'll be doing the drawing at 4pm EST this Wednesday February 3rd on:

On a personal note, I needed to emergency fly to Arizona to take care of my father. He's now getting some of the care he needs. Big apologies for the delay in letting everyone know the status of the raffle.

All entrants can expect an email today.

Thanks for the support!

Oh man, good luck in AZ. I hope everything goes well there!

#209 6 years ago

Has anyone got their email yet?

#210 6 years ago
Quoted from feveredpinhead:

Has anyone got their email yet?

Being that the guy had a family emergency and the day is not over yet, maybe you give it till tomorrow??

#211 6 years ago

Take your time Joe.....family first.

#212 6 years ago

I haven't got mine yet.

+1

Joe, family is ALWAYS first. Take care of home, and the rest will work itself out brother.

#214 6 years ago

Wasn't trying to rush Joe. Just making sure I didn't miss anything. Carry on.

#215 6 years ago

I have not gotten an email. Did any of you guys get one?

#216 6 years ago
Quoted from Jodester:

I have not gotten an email. Did any of you guys get one?

I didn't get one either. I'm sure he's just been delayed.

#217 6 years ago

Yeah, and I'm guessing there may be some issue with the new site for the delay ...I see in my contribution list that I have now "contributed" to both the December drawing and a new February drawing (currently only one cc charge) which is up to $530 despite not really being a link active from the website. I mean, having contributions listed as 9941 and 530 for raffles at $40 a ticket is some funky rallyup math I didn't learn in school...Joe may be becoming an expert in this new math!

Hopefully just site problems and not personal issues.

#218 6 years ago

Setzkor -

The math was a little weird and I'm working with rallyup to remove the convoluted nature of their process.

Everyone-

You should have received an email to confirm your tickets and as our standard procedure, I will be live placing every entry into the raffle drum before I draw the names. If you do not confirm your name, you will be refunded with our apologies.

I'm devoted to running a transparent raffle where all entrants are confident their donations are respected.

Huge thanks to everyone for your support.

Good luck tomorrow!

We had a few entries at the end that oversold the rallyup system. They have been accounted for and placed in the February raffle. If the purchaser would prefer a refund they will be provided one and have been prompted via an email.

Thanks everyone,

#236 6 years ago

Hmm am I looking at the wrong page? On pinballraffle.com it says only 22 % and $2,236 raised?

Not gonna lie, this is confusing. There aren't supposed to be two concurrently running raffles as far as I know. Pinballraffle.org is supposed to be the correct rally up redirect and it's showing the current, correct prizes. I'm sure Joe will acknowledge your question and give an answer.

#238 6 years ago

this is the current raffle....

this link http://www.pinballraffle.org will redirect you to the current raffle...

https://rallyup.com/a48016

hope that helps!

now buy some tickets so I can win!!

#239 6 years ago

There are in fact two raffles going on. The one at the dot com address is in conjunction with another promotion we are doing.

February can be found at:

https://rallyup.com/a48016

Sorry for the confusion,
Please let me know if you have any other questions,

Can you give both links and explain what both the promotions are benefiting?

#241 6 years ago

The raffles that were oversold and moved to february, are they at the .com or the .org? ☺

#242 6 years ago

All the funds we are raising go towards opening the FIRST Pinball Education Center in Frederick, Maryland. Mission is to utilize the wonderful and unique game of Pinball for the social enrichment, skill development and education of kids and young adults. This extends into helping kids with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and working towards defining Pinball as an evidence based treatment.

I started working on this concept 4 years ago. We incorporated in December 2014 and received out 501(c)3 determination in April 2015. We've jumped through a number of city regulations and requirements that I didn't even know existed when I started. Here's a floor plan that the fire marshal of Frederick has okayed and I have a lease in hand and am negotiating with the landowner now.

I'm hoping to be able to do a special multi-day event during the month of April for Autism awareness month. I've worked really hard to get a solid board together, and they have been very helpful with direction.

If you'd like to help out the current raffle is under:

www.pinballraffle.org

main-raffle-image_(resized).png

The dot com is another opportunity we had to promote to a new audience and will be a separate drawing.

Thanks for all the support guys! I'm really excited about opening up this space and the raffle gives us the base we need to sustain on a monthly basis.

Let me know if you have anymore questions,
