Here are the official rules for the UCS Falcon Raffle.

If you have any questions about these rules, please ask them in this thread If you purchase a ticket for this drawing, you are agreeing to these rules.

1. Each ticket is $10 US payable by paypal only.

2. Please follow through with number if tickets said you would buy.

3. Each ticket gives you one chance to win. If you purchase 2 tickets, you double your chance to win, etc.

4. There will be 65 tickets sold.

5. The Falcon will be ordered by Eurobricks member Dunamis in March to ensure free shipping to USA.

6. A deadline for payment will be April 10th 9PM Eastern Time (USA). If you do not pay by the deadline, you forfeit your ticket(s). We will give someone else on the board the opportunity to buy a ticket.

*EDIT* I moved the deadline to the 10th! *EDIT*

7. You must pay via paypal to a Jamie75. I set up paypal account just for this contest. Payment can be sent to, falcon_raffle@yahoo.com, this way it keeps the money for the raffle and my money separate! I am still waiting for the account to be confirmed with my bank account info, but, I think it is safe to send when you want! I already sent money to it from other paypal account.

8. Once all the participants have paid, I will send the list to a trusted Eurobricks member, Mod, or Admin to put in a hat or bowl for the official drawing in Germany.

9. The official drawing will take place at the Eurobrick event in Germany April 27-29th. The specific date and time will be posted once the details are ironed out.

10. A Moderator or trusted Eurobricks member, Mod, or Admin who is not participating in the drawing will draw the winning ticket. If all members present are participating, then a 3rd party person not associated with the drawing will draw the ticket. This person will be determined at random by an attending Moderator or trusted Eurobricks member (just some random person walking by will suffice.) I am sure someone can video tape it if need be.

*EDIT* XWingYoda will take care of the drawing at the Eurobricks event in Germany! *EDIT*

11. Once the winning ticket is drawn, there are no do-overs, mulligan’s, second chances, best 2 out of 3 etc.

12. Once the Falcons begin to ship in October Dunamis will either change the shipping address for the winner, if in the US, or have it shipped to him and ship it overseas!

13. The Winner is responsible for ALL ADDITIONAL EXPENSES INCURRED to receive the Falcon from California including:
a. Additional shipping costs
b. Import taxes
c. Any other cost associated with receiving the Falcon

14. Winner has the option of having Dunamis remove the contents of the Falcon from the box and put into a smaller box to save on shipping.

15. Dunamis will NOT SHIP the Falcon until the winner has paid any additional fees via Paypal.

Here is how the money breaks down:
65 x $10 = $650
Less approx $40 in paypal fees = $610 remaining
Less approx $540 for cost of Falcon (including tax) = $70 remaining

The remaining $70 is for shipping to the winner. If the shipping cost is more, the winner will paypal the difference PRIOR to shipping. If there is excess, the remainder will be given to Eurobricks to cover hosting fees.

So, with all this said, GAME ON!

Thanks, Jamie75 and Dunamis

Well done! *y*

Rules accepted, I´m going to pay it today.
EDIT: Ouch, I need to transfer some money to my PP account... :-| That will take some 3-4 days. I´ll pay you then.

Maybe the deadline could be a bit sooner than April, 20th?
That would mean just one week till drawing time. 8-|

Less approx $540 for cost of Falcon (including tax) = $70 remaining

Why not just have it shipped to someone in the US where tax isn't applied and save $40?  The Falcon I had shipped to me in Maryland had a $40 tax added, but the ones shipped to NY don't.  I plan on changing the shipping address on the first.  Try to save as much as possible and all.

This is up to Dunamis, he ordered it and will do what he sees fit.

I am running this part, he is handling that part of the contest!

Well then I'll wait for him to respond  :-P   It seems rather silly to waste $40 like that, especially if someone wins from Europe, where shipping will be...expensive

Excellent suggestion.  I just sent you a PM to discuss.

I mistakenly said NY was cheaper, but it was the other way around.  No sales tax to MD.

Don't forget to thank Mutley777 too. This was his idea. I just took the ball and ran with it! By him saying someone should, I figured he would like the idea, but, didn't want to do it himself. Hope I didn't step on his toes!
