Raffles are no longer allowed on the site - 07-27-2011, 04:47 PM

Hey gang, got a note from the Arizona AG's office today about the online raffles. After consulting a local attorney, I have been informed that it would be best if we did not allow online raffles on the site.

I have no proof of this, but I suspect that a certain online cue maker and parts salesman is responsible for this whole issue. Nevertheless, it is what it is.

I will leave this section open long enough for existing raffles to work with people who have purchased numbers and to work out how they want to handle their raffles.

After that, I will be shutting this section down.

PLEASE DO NOT START ANY MORE RAFFLES IN THIS AREA!!

Someone must want to share.....



Mike....you know you can limit access to a sub-forum....as in make it completely private, except to certian members? VBulletin is really easy to set something like that up. If you PM me I will be glad to share what I know.

Cool A good guy - 07-27-2011, 09:03 PM

Mike, you are a good guy and I know you are only doing this because it is buisness. You have always been nothing but good to me.I am one of those guys that does not get involved in anything that will cause a fight. I buy and sell on your sight and really appreciate it.
I believe that these raffles hurt no one, especially cuemakers and Billiard suppliers. It gave people a chance to have a cue that they normally could not afford. I know that writing this will do no good, but I've been a big backer of these raffles since day1. I just wanted to voice my opinion, which I very seldom do. Like I said you are a good guy and would not do this if you had a choice. Do what you have to do,like you said "It is what it is" Thank you for the many years you have taken a beating for having them. Your Friend

If you know who it is you should out them and ban them from the sight.

raffle - 07-27-2011, 11:25 PM

Ditto ! These raffles are (were) the greatest thing since sliced bread. Gave everybody HOPE that they can own some of these great cues/cases that they normally would never be able to afford. What's the ol' saying, "Where theirs a will theirs a way" ! Hopefully someone will come up with something to save these raffles ????????

Hey Mike. That sucks. No way around it. But from hearing what Tommie, Ross, etc have said I think you're doing what is in the best interest of the forum. I have a raffle already more than half way paid that I will try to run by Friday. If that is ok to finish it up? Please let me know one way or another as it would be most helpful to finish this one in a timely manner if it is allowed by you.

Thanks,
Chris.

I wish I had the chance to explore this sub forum more, seeing how I could get some nice cues under 50 bucks and some luck.

If they are no longer going to have raffles on this site, I will set up a place on my website to hold them.

Anyone wanting to start a raffle there, be my guest.
I would suggest limiting it to AZ members and they would have to post there AZ name.

Thanks
Lee
