RAFFLE

We are making our RAFFLE PROCEDURES last year VERY DIFFERENT than past years, so please read the following information carefully. Don’t assume we are doing what we did in 2019 and previous years.

WHAT ABOUT POLYBUCKS?

We won’t be doing polybucks this year.  Going to keep everything simple in one pool.  Raffle tickets only.

EARNING RAFFLE TICKETS

You will earn raffle tickets all weekend for participating in gaming, panels and other activities.  Generally speaking each hour of activity will earn you one ticket.  In some cases, a GM or Panelist or Tournament Leader might have mutiple tickets to award for special reasons.

HANDLE YOUR TICKETS

When you are given tickets, you will be handed the whole ticket, both halves.  It is YOUR responsibility to tear off one portion and drop it into the raffle box located at the front desk / registration.  You MUST PRESENT the other half with a legible matching number from the roll of origin.  NAMES WILL NOT BE READ OFF TICKETS.  Only the ticket numbers.  If you don’t have the matching ticket number, you can’t claim the prize.  Period.  Full Stop.

CLAIMING PRIZES

To claim a prize, you must present the matching ticket numbers with a valid ticket (matching the ticket roll of origin) to a member of the Eclectic Endeavors staff.  Any unclaimed hourly prizes come the Big Sunday Raffle at 4PM, will become part of the final raffle.  All prizes must be claimed during this final raffle.  We will draw numbers until a winner is found.  Once the raffle is closed, all tickets are null and void.

PRIZE DONATIONS

We are INCREDIBLY thankful to all our exhibitors and supporters who provide a variety of goods to give away.  Withouth their generous donations, we wouldnt’ have much of a raffle.  If at all.  Please contact a member of the Eclectic Endeavors staff to hand off your donation.

HOURLY RAFFLE DRAWINGS

All weekend, we will have hourly raffle drawings.  Tickets will be drawn and the numbers posted on the white board at the front entrance.

BIG SUNDAY RAFFLE

On Sunday we will draw for all the prizes remaining that have been collected/donated by our wonderful exhibitors and supporters.  This drawing will be held at the end of our final announcements on Sunday that will start at 4PM in the Performance Space.

RAFFLE TICKETS CANNOT BE SOLD

If you earned raffle tickets, and will not be around to claim prizes drawn on other days and the Big Sunday Raffle, you can give away your tickets to others.  You are NOT allowed to sell them. This would violate state & federal tax laws.  Only 501(c)(3)s verified with the IRS can do this. Any tickets sold will be consider null and void.  Please let staff know if you hear or see this activity, immediately.
