    The raffle drawing is supposed to start in an hour. Is it going to happen as advertised? I see nothing in the non-member section. Any news in the Member Only section?

    I don't see any reason it wouldn't go on. They'll find some way to make it happen. I don't see why people are complaining about it to begin with. If someone was giving you a free car you'd find some way to make it work. Worst case just say you bought the car for $100 (or whatever you paid for your tickets).

    Because it appears to many that it is an unlicensed raffle, at least in Nebraska. You may have bought the car for $100 but when the state seizes it, your happiness would fade, not to mention those who spent hundreds on tickets for a potentially unlicensed multi-state lottery.


    By the way, I am not complaining, I was simply asking if it was going forward.

    I think we all care to see how it plays out with the rest of the club. Enthusiast or not, we all want to see the future of this club and the changes it goes thru.

    The raffle wasn't being held in Nebraska anyway as it turns out. Woodhouse commented on it elsewhere, but despite what the ticket says it's not being held at the dealership, the car is just there.

    I think the Michigan club where the raffle originated, but I'm not sure on that. Just going off of what I've read about it in various places.

    According to MI Law, a raffle such as this must have a 'large raffle license' with the number printed on the ticket.

    http://www.michigan.gov/documents/BSL-CG-1824_26045_7.pdf



    IS there a license number printed on the ticket?

    Yeah, I bet the raffle is screwed. I would expect they don't have too many options. Not sure how many states the can shop until they find one where they can legally hold it after having already sold the tickets. I would guess they are going to have to reset it some way, perhaps printing new tickets and offering refunds.

    I'm not sure how you hold many successful and legal raffles and then screw one up.

    The real pisser is I'm having a party at my house in two weeks to reveal the raffle car to friends and family. Sort too late to cancel that. Won't be much of a celebration without the car there. :(

    Anyone else notice this is NOT the raffle car they showed a picture of at VOI? What's the story there? That one was special (silver) and not something you could order. If I remember correctly. This one is not.

    If there IS a mishap for whatever reason it will be interesting to see how long they take to post here about it and why. Wow the replies will really run long then. Im thinking it will go though or has been done.

    The tickets don't have a license number printed on them like the Michigan tickets did from past years

    Do this year's tickets have the location of the drawing printed on them? If so, what does it say?

    That's what I thought. Doesn't seem like this raffle is valid in either state, Nebraska or Michigan.


    That seems problematic.
