Champs Raffle Information
« on: August 28, 2018, 07:10:43 AM »
Hi Everyone!

Are you gearing up for this years CHAMPS raffle??  Saving up your money??  Printing your name labels?  This year's raffle is going to be the best ever!  For those first time Champs people, the Champs raffle consists of state baskets donated by a club, person or group representing their state or country. The "basket" can be any size or style of container you wish to bring.  In the past, I have seen coolers, dog tents, crates, dog pools, Dog beds, chairs, buckets and many more original containers stuffed with items from their state or country. Your imagination has no limits!!

Most groups will share in bringing the items for their state 'basket'.  Many items in the baskets represent things that come from your state or country and are unique to that area. But not all baskets are area specific. Some baskets are theme related. And purple items seem to be very popular!

In the past, we have seen some amazing humongous baskets from different states or groups. This year we would like to spread more of the joy, so we would like the groups to think about splitting up some of their basket into multiple raffle baskets. Like for example, one major basket with other smaller baskets/items that can be raffled separately, or even 2-3 evenly dispersed baskets. This way we get more winners!  And one person doesn't have to worry about how the heck they are going to get all THAT into their car! 

The tickets will be drawn on Sunday between round 7 and the finals round. If you leave before the ticket draw, be sure to designate someone to take stuff home for you, just in case you win. We will not ship anything.

Raffle tickets will be priced as follows.
$1 … 1 ticket
$5 … 7 tickets
$10 … 15 tickets
$20 … 35 tickets
$50 … 100 tickets   

Weds will be the Bruce Vincent Early Bird Special ticket sales. It is when you can buy 300 tickets for $100.00   So save up your money!!!   

The Early Bird Special sales will be from 9am -5pm on Weds only.

The WORKER raffle is only for people volunteering to work the trial and are receiving tickets for their work.  If you wish to donate something to the worker raffle, I am sure they would appreciate any item. Simply bring the item to the worker raffle table and the worker raffle volunteers will take it from there.

The raffle tables will be near the crating area and near the vendors and the Awards Ribbon wall. We will open the raffle area tables for set up as soon as we have the tables organized and covered. Probably not til Tuesday.  Each group/person is responsible for setting up their own basket area. Please try and keep your raffle 'space' on the tables to a minimum so we can get all the raffle baskets on the tables.   

Manning the raffle table for 5 days is a huge undertaking, especially on Weds during the Bruce Vincent Early Bird Special. If you have any free time and wish to help out please let me know. You can earn free raffle tickets for helping out!!

I will be bringing a lot o "stuff" from Virginia and would love more donations.  If you're coming to Champs, you can just bring your stuff to our area.  Anyone who is not going to Champs who would like to donate and coming to the Star City Roanoke trial can bring their donations to the trial.  I would also be happy to combine with any other east coast group if anyone wants.

Labels sounds like a good way to go.  Are those the ones commonly referred to as return address labels (1" x 2 5/8")?

That size is usually called "Address labels" and might be too big for the raffle tickets.  The ones I use are called "return address labels" and they are 2/3 " x 1 3/4" and just fit on the tickets.

Thanks Marcy.

Thinking of one thing and then typed the info off the end of the wrong box. Yes, the small return labels. Great.

One more note for the raffle this year.

To encourage people to donate to their state baskets and make the raffle as great as possible, there will be a special raffle that you can ONLY receive tickets for if you donated an item to your states basket.    It's going to be sponsored by NADAC and will have Jumps from the event, A tunnel from the event, a certificate for a 001 dog registration number, certificate for a free NADAC hosted Trial weekend entry, and as much other stuff as we can cram into it!

In regards to the State Raffle Baskets, what is the range of total monetary value you are looking for per each basket. (Trying to decide how to break up our merchandise or keep as one unit)

We don't have any monetary set guideline.  It is what ever the clubs/groups or individuals wants to do with their items. We are good with what ever you decide to do.

  For those that are new.  Many "baskets" will be set up on Tuesday (or as soon as we are allowed to set up) but you will see many of them grown and more baskets added to the tables as exhibitors arrive to the site throughout the week. So keep visiting the raffle tables through out the week to see what has been added....you just might need a few more tickets.

  In 2016 we could pre-order raffle tickets via paypal..will that be an option this year?
