Please note though....to make it fair for everyone purchasing tickets in person or via mail, I had to raise the prices per ticket on the raffle for internet sales on Paypal to cover Paypal's service fees they charge on each purchase. It's your choice. Either via postal mail, or a few more cents per ticket for internet sales. It all equals the same amt. once I get it though. Below is the link to purchase online. Please fill in all the information if you choose to go this route, and enter your Name, Address, Phone when ordering. I will contact you via email once you have purchased tickets. http://www.cagohio.net/raffleonline.html For full details on the drawing, visit http://www.cagohio.net/2004fundraiser.html So you don't carp fish? That's fine. Your support of our group gives us the opportunity to provide fun fish-ins, as well as promote the sport of carp fishing by presenting awards at our events. If you win, your "winnings" can be re-sold in the Marketplace Forums I'm sure some of the carpers around here would give you a fair price for some of the equipment Thank You for your support!
