5-GUN RAFFLE FUNDRAISER SOLD OUT!!!!!!


Recommended Posts

All 1,000 tickets have now been sold!

Thank you folks for your support!

 

Hellbender

 

 

We did not sell out at Comancheria days but we almost did.  I opened the raffle back up on the Wire last night and we now have only 12 tickets left to sell.  If you want to buy a ticket, please respond here (or send me a PM) saying how many tickets you want.  Please don’t just send a check this time because now I have to keep careful track of ticket numbers and we may be sold out before your check arrives if I don't know it's coming.  Once all remaining  tickets have been spoken for, there are no more and I will announce that. 

FIRST COME, FIRST SERVE.  

If you are among those who have "claimed" the remaining tickets here or by PM, please wait until you hear from me before mailing the check.  I will contact you by PM.

 

Note to a few: I am still holding tickets for those who previously said they wanted them but whose checks have yet to arrive.

 

 

I never thought I'd be asking this but please hold off on ordering any more raffle tickets until after Comancheria Days is over.  There are not that many tickets left and I promised I would have tickets there this coming weekend.  If there are tickets still remaining after that match, I will post availability once again on the wire.  If there are no tickets left, I will let that be known also.

 

Thank you!

Howdy Folks,

 

The Up the Creek Gang in Lake Charles, Louisiana is having a 5-gun raffle to raise much needed funds so that we can continue building our new cowboy town to replace the one that was completely destroyed by Hurricane Laura on August 29, 2020.

 

What's in the raffle (see photos):

  • new in the box Uberti '73 straight stock in 357 magnum, action job by Lefty Wheeler
  • new Winchester '94 in 44 magnum, engraved by Aspen Filly
  • new Baikal 12 gauge, engraved by Aspen Filly
  • new in the box Rossi "92 in 44 magnum
  • like new IAC 1887 12 gauge

 

When/where is the raffle drawing:

  • May 22, 2021
  • at our new cowboy town under construction in Lake Charles, Louisiana
  • you need not be present to win
  • drawing will be videoed and put on the Wire

 

How the guns are awarded:

  • five tickets will be drawn
  • owner of first drawn ticket gets their choice from among the 5 guns
  • owner of second drawn ticket gets their choice from among the 4 remaining guns
  • this continues until all 5 guns have been awarded
  • we will cover shipping costs from our FFL to your FFL

 

How this works:

  • raffle tickets are $10 each
  • a maximum of 1,000 tickets will be sold
  • ticket sales have already begun, both locally and at the 2021 SASS Texas State Championship held March 25 - 28
  • to purchase tickets, make out a check to Up the Creek Gang for the number of tickets you want at $10/ticket (no sales through PayPal for this one)
  • mail the check to Hellbender, 528 Jefferson Dr., Lake Charles, LA 70605 with your phone number and email address included
  • we will fill out your tickets' stubs, enter them into the drawing, and then mail you back the other parts of your tickets (see photo of ticket)
    • You will not be asked to produce your part of the ticket to claim your prize
  • The owners of the 5 drawn tickets will be phoned in the order which their ticket stub or stubs were drawn to determine which gun or guns they want (see above).  Yes, it is possible for the same person to win more than one gun

 

Please don't hesitate to ask any questions if you have them.  Good luck to everyone, and thanks for helping us out!

 

Hellbender

President & Secretary,

Up the Creek Gang

I haven’t forgotten you, still on the road, will be back home in a day or two.

I was starting to wonder where that check was ;) because I've had your name on those stubs for a while now :P.  No problem, thanks for your continued support :D!

Howdy Jeb,

 

There's one recent photo at the beginning of the pictures in a SASS WIRE CLASSIFIEDS ad I had earlier this month:

 

and there are plenty more pictures, going way back to long before the old towns destruction, to the destruction itself, the clean-up, the beginning construction of the new town, and up to the current state of the new town on our club's Facebook page.  If you are on Facebook, just search for Up the Creek Gang and you'll see them.

 

Thanks for asking about the photos and thanks for buying tickets!

Any chance of you bringing some raffle tickets to Comancheria Days next week?

 

La Sombra

Yes, more than just a chance - we will be there with raffle tickets!  I spoke with Tombstone Mary at the TX State Match last weekend and got the OK to bring the poster we had there and to sell tickets on site.

 

See you there!
