    BuckinMichigan was our raffle winner. But like many of the people who participated in the drawing (a majority, actually) he is unable to go.

    He does however want someone from BP to go. I do too. So this is the new deal. For one week we will hold an open "auction" for these tickets. What's more important than what they sell for, is that they go to someone here who will use them, and represent OSU and BP at the bowl game. Bonus points to anyone with a digital camera who can bring back spoils from your exploits.

    These will go to whomever the highest bidder is after the week, per the wishes of the raffle winner. Speaking from a personal standpoint, I want to point out that this could well be a clear opportunity to go for a better price than you could get anywhere else. These tickets, after having been donated by TallIndian (you're the best, and don't hate me for outing you here) raised $390 for the site and the new server. That's both terrific and entirely unexpected. A welcome holiday surprise and boost for the site, at a time when it needs it. But the fundraising portion has been done, and now let's get someone from our family in those seats.

    It's worth pointing out, as was done in the other thread, that those who take these will be sitting directly in front of other BPers, as buckeye68 holds the two seats directly behind. So there you go. A bowl, and a chance to meet someone else from our own little Planet.

    So don't go nuts. Say $1, or $5. Whatever. Someone take these, and have a blast with them.

    Congrats and thanks to BuckinMichigan, and a huge thanks again to TallIndian, and a thanks to everyone who participated in the raffle, sorry you all couldn't win. But hey, you got a spiffy little medal at least, right? Okay okay, I'll make sure the rest of you all win next time.

    Also, bonus points to whoever held #3195, because I drew a secondary entry just in case there was a problem with the first. If you read this and that's your number, drop me a PM because I might have a silly little consolation prize for you.

    So, do I hear a penny?

    and just how did Buckin get 36 entries with his number on it stuffed in the box? goes into Govt and learns how to rig stuff... moves to Michigan and see how he is now... (read... NJ-sore loser... NJ-sore loser)...

    could have sent tickets to his fellow St V Irishman - Lawrence Wilson - as an 'inducement'...

    I won runner up... a Shawn Springs autographed game helmet he wore at Seattle... the game he had two interceptions... one run back for a TD.. thanks Clarity !!! very generous...

    There was no cheating involved, at least that you can prove. Just another case of St. V dominance over Hoban (school for wayward girls) :biggrin:

    I usually prefer new systems vice refurbished, although Dell's refurbished systems have warranties, and if fact our local Dell rep recommends them.
