Hi W-Jetter

The sled is ALL the way tore down, as if you just had it painted. Which we did! :thumb:

No presure, What doesn't get done will get done soon enough. :angel: Just thought it would be a good oppurtunity to bench race and BS! :beer:

My suggestion is if it seems early enough give me a call Saturday and see how were doing before making the drive.

 Sorry about the short notice.

When will the sled be raffled ? Tickets ?
Title: Re: Raffle Sled (69 Sears Hillary 399)
Post by: Premix on April 11, 2012, 11:18:09 PM
The tickets will be $1 each or 6 for $5. They will be available in the very near future. We usually send each member a few to begin with and have lots of extras if they'd like them to buy or sell. I think this is going to be a very popular sled raffle and tickets are going to sell really well. I know when Premix was painting it, he said several times how much he'd like to win it! (Me too!!) The raffle drawing will "probably" be the 1st Sat in February, 2012. In the past we've had the raffle at Ray McGuire's Bone Yard in Lena, the same day as the Balls Beater Run and we're hoping to do that again. It's always a fun day at Ray's!!! A show, swap, ride if possible, a poker run, raffles etc.  If you've never made that event, plan to be there this year. Proceeds benefit local non-profit groups & school projects. LOTS of food, beer, food, more beer and did I mention they have beer  :beer:

We'll have more info about the raffle for the members following our meeting on April 18th. A newsltter will be going out and we'll post raffle updates here on the forum. If you're interested in attending the meeting, it is at Newingham's in Wausaukee at 7 PM. Come Join Us!

Hey Autolube,We had a good time on Saturday helping to put the sled together.  We dont get to do too much for the club living as far away as we do,so we thought it would be a good time to come and help out. Now All I hope for is to win the sled in the raffle.

Guys dont forget we have this to ride also! I dont think it will be as fast but time will tell?  76 TX 440 

Yes Jeff I think we need to set up a ride that might have a little quicker pace and a few more miles.

Dont get me wrong I do like the old sleds but sometimes you just got to let'er snap a little! :thumb:

Spraygas the Beer thing sounds good,lets hope we get more snow for next winters riding?

Here is a picture of the gun were giving away as fourth place in the Sears Hillary Raffle - Feb.2nd. at the Balls Beater.

If you like guns it looks pretty cool, 8) if you don't care for guns to much it may look kinda scary?  >:D  Either way it is just a 22-caliber semi-automatic.

This gun was donated by Ray Mcguire owner of Ray's Boneyard Saloon.  :thankyou: Ray, we are grateful.  :clapping:

Thanks for the raffle prize Ray!   :thankyou:

I would like to remind everyone that Ray McGuire and his business, Ray's Bone Yard Saloon, Lena, WI, has been a huge supporter of this club for many years.  He provides us  with a place to have our summer picnic, he donates a raffle prizes every year and he hosts a Sawp and Show event at the Bone Yard Saloon in February where he invites N.E.W. Low Buck Vintage Riders, S.C. to hold the final day of raffle ticket sales and the drawing for our vintage sled raffle that evening at his event.

If you are on your way to or from Green Bay, plan to stop in at the Bone Yard Saloon, have a beverage and lunch or dinner and take a second to thank Ray for all his support.
