I couldn't agree more with what Mark V and Scott G have recently posted. I would be ecstatic to own and enjoy a work by Graig and see this clearly as a unique chance. Got to step it up....I will take one more chance pls Bill....rounding mine out to an even 10 total. 3 initially paid for and payment for 7 coming shortly

Thanks Bill and Graig for this opportunity!

Thank you all, and the very best of luck to you.

Less than 12 hours away from the deadline and we have 35 slots left. I am torn between hoping we sell out and not selling out to increase my odds!

Seriously....this is an incredible opportunity and I wanted to take the time to thank those who organized this event and thank Graig for agreeing to do this again.

I know you're joking, but just so nobody gets the wrong idea, buying even one more entry increases your odds more than the bump your they get from the raffle not selling through. So I would discourage anyone from sitting on their hands and hoping the raffle doesn't sell through rather than helping to ensure it does.

And putting my money where my mouth is, I'll take 1 last entry, which I think puts me at 7 total. But seriously, nobody tell my wife. I don't think the doghouse door is big enough to get the painting through if I win.

Lance,

Thank you Lance, and in case of those that don't know it. Lance is very active in this also. He is our go to guy. He keeps my feet on the ground, which can be a chore, which he will probably say so.
If it were not for Lance, this would not work as smooth as it does.

Thank you Lance and one more it is.

On the sly of course.

Bill

You are right in that I really was kidding.

I do want this to sell through mainly because the artist is taking a risk to do this for us and I want to see him do well with this project. I wish I could take another entry or two but with having two right now, I am about on the edge of my collecting budget for a month or two. I missed getting into the last one and I didnt want to miss this one. Again, thank you for everyone connected with this project.

Now I am off to figure out what I am going to have Graig paint for me when I win!

raffle is now closed

We have a payment for one entry from AJR before the deadline, but he may not have requested on the thread, trying to find out who AJR is.

Well, that part is done. way to go guys, you all stepped up very well, thank you.

Now we will have a short wait till all payments come in. Remember, payments are due by Nov. 17, at 8PM
As you probably noticed, we are in good shape as far as payments go. We have less then a dozen members left to pay.
Thank you all for your participation. Soon, we hope, we will be able to name the sporting event that will make someone very happy.

Bill

By the way, still waiting on one person's response who sent money for an entry request to Graig, but not to me, and we hope to be able to identify this person soon.If so, that person had money in before the 8 PM deadline and will be placed on the list.
Our unidentified member has been identified and placed on the list.

Bill

Please check the entry list and make sure all your spots are paid for, as the last raffle some did forget they still owed.
Those who still owe, if you send your payment through the US mail, please let me or Graig know.
We have only 9 members who owe money, and 3 of those have payments in the mail already. If all goes well. maybe we can have a midweek raffle and have our new Kreindler painting winner at that time.

Remember, all payments are due my Monday of next week.

Good luck to everyone and my next post should be what sporting event we will be using

Bill

We are now down to 0 unpaid

We are very close to all paid up, as we just have to be patient with the US postal service, we all know them well. We hope to be posting the sporting event very soon.
Does anyone know where we can get the box score for Rugby games????

Just kidding, very soon all, very soon.

Bill

All money will be coming in today, and I will post the games this Friday morning between 10 and 11 am.


Now we can really start a countdown.

FINALLY, here are the games selected to determine who will win a 20 x 28 inch Graig Kreindler painting. Games were selected by Graig, and we wish everyone good luck.
I will be posting a separate thread which we will use for the raffle itself, and make it much easier to monitor and maintain.

And with that, to quote Jackie Gleason with his famous saying from his "Jackie Gleason Show";

"AND AHH WAAAAYYY WE GO"




Game#1: NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE GAME.
SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 16TH
1pm EST
TAMPA BAY vs WASHINGTON



Game#2- NATIONAL BASKETBALL ASSOCIATION
MONDAY, NOVEMBER 17TH
7:30pm EST
ORLANDO vs DETROIT



Game #3- NATIONAL BASKETBALL ASSOCIATION
WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 19TH
7:30pm EST
MILWAUKEE vs BROOKLYN




We will use the above games, in order, Game 1, through Game 3, to determine a winner. The first game is our primary game to determine the winner of the Graig Kreindler Painting. We will be using the last three numbers of the attendance figure, as posted in the NY times, box score, for Game #1, which will give us the winning number. Any other figure from any other news or sports media, will not be valid.

If the winning three digit number from game one falls onto one of the voided numbers and thus not providing a winning number, then and only then will game two become our new primary game to determine the winner, using Game 2's attendance figures, also from the New York Times box score of game 2.

Same rules apply for game two as was for game one.


If game 2 also falls on a voided number, game 3 will then and only then, become the new primary game to determine the winner. All rules apply to game three as did for game one and two.



Again it has been our pleasure to be able to accomplish this event. Now, you can start thumbing through those photos, scanning hundreds of online images, and pick a favorite.



Good luck to EVERYBODY.

Graig,, Lance,, Bill
