I would wait until after the GTG at the earliest. If most of them are in your possession, have them out for a show/shine. If you don't have to have the money right away, I would wait and have a big-bang finale. Nothing like knowing you have alot of chances to win something. I'll throw in a WildThing if one of you guys will port it:smile2:

there is going to be so many saws in this raffle that i think i will have start drawing a saw winner each week that it runs after it gets up and going good. or i may end up ebaying some of the saws and giving a link to them from here and then putting that money into the total for donations.

I'd wait, Terry. I think you are going to build more interest and momentum if there are a lot of chances at the end. Or, maybe do some around the GTG and then have the big finale.

And, to be blunt, those of us who know you know how important this is to you and will help out regardless of what will be a potential prize. But since almost no one knows your friend, a better chance at a prize at the end may help you get others to chip in.

I really don't want anyone to take that the wrong way. This community has always stepped up to help someone in need. I'm just trying to think of how to help you get the absolute best result for your friend.

Maybe there would be no difference in everyone's eyes between helping a member and helping the friend of a member. If so, pretend this post never happened. :msp_unsure:

I'm all for helping Mitch out. He's a damn good guy and needs all the support we can give. :rock:

There does need to be a plan laid out so everyone can see what is offered and how it will all go down. I'm sure you are working on that though. :msp_thumbup:

I plan to donate a saw or a woods port to add to the list of prizes.

well folks i spoke to a member today that i just built and ported a saw for a few weeks ago. during the conversation i kinda got lost with what he was saying and a tad confused. at first i was thinking there was something wrong with the saw becouse in my deafness i heard send it back. what he was telling me was that hes adding it to the list of saws in the raffle. so if he wants to speak up he can, if not it appreciated just the same.
i also had a private messaging conversation with another member that wants to send in another saw for the raffle. he can also speak up if he wishes but if not ,thanks all the same.

so the list reads as follows now
ported husqvarna 372xpw
ported stihl 064/066
husqvarna 288xp
dolmar 7900
solo 690
solo 667
jonsered 52e
and few bars and chains
thers going to be a few more added to this list too. if you ever wanted to get a chance at a free saw here it is. besides this being a good cause its a great chance to take home a nice saw.

Wow, that's crazy Terry, can't believe how much the list has grown in a couple days.

Hopefully this all works out well for your friend.

How's he doing?

I wasnt planning on posting anything until I read Wendells post,I know not all folks will look at this the same but here goes....I was self employed for many years,made a damn good living at it too. My wife was involved in a pretty serious accident on an ice road in a high wind....messed her up pretty bad.....All the while Im laid in bed with my ribs so busted up the thought of sneezing terrified me,we actually hit a point where we didnt have enough money to declare bankruptcy.....never asked the govt for a dime...Terry's a good guy, Im sure he hired a good guy...never been stingy on advice or hearing a saw run over the phone and telling you how to fix it....If more folks pitched in like this around the world we wouldnt have half the problems we do and Im sure honored to be a small part...FYI....keep a couple bricks in your pockets on that 064/066 it runs a lil bit

You will have to show him this thread one of these days. On the saws any need bars or chains? Have you decided if its one drawing for all the saws 10 places or passed out another way, just wondering I'm in it for the fundraiser not the saws. Info and pics bring interest to a thread. :rock:

OK leave it up to the person getting the saw, If the new owner wants it I'll mail it to them. :rock:

Edit: I may even have a extra half wrap if the peson getting the saw don't like 3/4 or full wraps. I'll go look and make sure.
