    Big Raffle - 2021 edition

    Big News, the Big Raffle is back. We're holding the Big Raffle again in 2021.

    Here is the raffle information link: https://idahoaviationfoundation.org/raffle.php


    Here is the direct link to online raffle tickets: https://idahoaviationfoundation.org/jcraffle/

    The main prize is the same: a set of Alaska Bushwheel, Airstreak, or Ultralight tires.

    We’re adding prizes real time. You can check the current prize list here: https://idahoaviationfoundation.org/...ges/prizes.pdf

    One big change is that you do not have to be present to win.

    So far, Airframes Alaska has not stepped up to support us this year, so an anonymous donor is purchasing the tires for IAF. Airframes has supported us for many years, but given the turmoil caused by the pandemic, we can fully understand, and are still grateful for Airframe's past support. They’ve been awesome. And many thanks to our current donor.

    The Big Raffle will not be held at the Super Cub Johnson Creek fly in this year for several reasons, but the main reason is that we just got a late start.

    The raffle drawing will be held on September 11 at Johnson Creek airport. We hope to broadcast it via Zoom, but we’re still testing.

    As we add more prizes, I’ll get a better handle on the prize list and update this thread.

    There are three simple rules for making consistently smooth landings. Unfortunately no one knows what they are.

    Is Windy gonna put her special Yellow Pine tar stickum on my ticket again this year--so it sticks to the DQ Dumpster, not the fingers of the kids pulling tickets?

    Thanks. cubscout

    Hi everyone. I know we've been a little quiet. We've had a busy summer, with personnel changes and website ISP changes.

    I found out yesterday that there may have been some ticket sales problems at our credit card processor - now fixed. I hope that no one was too inconvenienced.

    I hope you're having a great summer, now into a busy fall flying season.

    I'll start posting some prizes now that the sponsors are settled. The full list is at: https://idahoaviationfoundation.org/jcraffle/prizes.pdf

    Note that you do not have to be present to win. Purchase your tickets at: https://idahoaviationfoundation.org/jcraffle/

    Like all years, the Big Prize is a Certificate for Airframes Alaska Bushwheels, Airstreaks or Ultralights.

    This year, the wheels are provided by an anonymous donor, for which we are eternally grateful.

    Be aware that we will stop selling online tickets by September 7 or so, to have time to generate the physical tickets for the drawing.

    Once again, Oregon Aero comes through with a SoftSeat and lumbar support, so you can fly comfortably no matter what plane you're in today.

    We originally planned to serve breakfast at JC this Saturday, before the drawing. However, I've been told that the state objected to us serving breakfast, so none this year. I don't know why at this point.

    Regards,
    Steve

    Notice! The drawing has been delayed to the "rain date", September 18, due to safety concerns about smoke. The Boundary Fire is pouring smoke down the Johnson Creek valley.

    First COVID, now fire. Sigh.

    I just sent the emails with the Big Raffle ticket numbers to online ticket purchasers. If you didn't get an email (after checking your junk folder), please send an email to raffle@idahoaviationfoundation.org. If you got the email, but the data is incorrect, please reply to the email.

    Thanks,
    Boise Steve

    PS - if you bought paper tickets, you kept the stub with the number, right?

    No promises yet, but if we were to reopen the online sales (given we have an extra week), is there much demand?

    Note that it takes a couple of days of part time work to process the online tickets into drawing-ready stubs, etc., so at most sales would reopen to Tuesday.

    McCall and Boise report 1/4 mile visibility this morning. Johnson Creek is clear. Weather is where you find it.
