Re: FW: NEDRA Nationals Raffle motor

Yes I think the online raffle tix is a great idea.

NEDRA already has a paypal account; I use it to pay for my membership. See the homepage.

I would suggest closing the online ticket sales at midnight the day before the event so that all of the online tix can be "put in the hat"! for the drawing which takes place at the event.

If this idea doesn't go..... and someone is going to the event that would agree to proxy for me, please respond offlist. I'll return the favor at the east coast events.

Stay Charged!
