My gut feeling is that there would be more interest if it was for two, rather than one. I may think that because of my personal situation though.

If I was in a position to pay for this, between Somethingfishy and Dan, I'd be counting on a significant return. Instead I'll just hope this raffle happens!
Agree, just trying to come up with a way to make it cheaper..

Consult is difficult given that I live in CLE. The cruise gives a good opportunity to offer that.
Not aiming to have the options close in value.

A domestic plane ride to CLE ain't adding that much.. and proportionally the difference between 18 and 32 is close to 10 and 13+flights etc... Or doesn't have to be the cheapest option to make an even bigger difference

I don't mind adding a domestic plane ride, or even making that a 2nd prize.
I'm just dubious that your typical person would fly to CLE and back for that and whether they would gain all that much other than easier MS while here... Also I don't want that to be resold and I'm not sure how to avoid that.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Maybe a second prize could be the consult in Cleveland and an Indians game with you? Then folks are flying out for more than the consult (and who doesn't love going to a ball game with a true fan?).

They have no need for a seminar in the first place.

Do you really think so, or are you just going to have a very limited amount of information you're willing to share

You can easily sell 300 IMHO, so why not make it 300 @$100

Fair enough. My point was to make it a straight-up raffle for the cruise, let's not start adding extra complications and money.
We can do 300x$100, $3000x10 or whatever makes the most sense.

I agree. I think $100 tickets make the most sense.

I doubt that there are very many people that you wouldn't be able to teach a couple of tricks to. At the end of the day for most it is a hobby while for you it is a business!

So I guess there are at least a few DDFers that would like a consolation prize for all losers to be a throwback Dans Deals Seminar.

And a lot of people would pay $100 for a seminar without any raffle...

Why not make a raffle for $100 for 1 seat or $180 for 2 tickets (couple) (or something like that). Max tickets  that will be sold will be to cover the cost of the tickets (so odds are 1 in 130 etc).
Can start a wiki who is interested and if the right amount of ppl are then we do it. If not enough sign up then no harm no gain???

You'd have to account for those that say their interested but back out when it comes down to it.

If there are enough ppl someone trustable (plenty on DDF) collects all the QP for the ticket amount then he makes the raffle. Its not that difficult!

A big point here, is finding a charity that appeals to all sects of Judaism. We need to figure out where we can give this cash to, that most of the people who are interested in this raffle, would want to give $ to.
