I think we have members who frequently travel from europe to the states. What if we can arrange for a meeting between the said members? That could potentially reduce the shipping cost and custom tax risk. Obviously we can't have arrangement to obscure places but what if we make it the east coast, ie the tri-states area, NY, NJ or CT  and in the hands of a trusted EB member? They can do the exchange say at Times Square NY or Bryant park or somewhere easy to meet. And the eb member who goes back to europe can meet up with the raffle winner at say the paris lego store or something. In exchange, the raffle winner will pay $50 to the EB "courier" for the trouble. :-P

Hey, I am a long time lurker but this raffle was too good to mis out on.  I'm from Canada and we (like most of the rest of the non-US world) are getting ripped off on the pricing of Lego.  If I can maybe get this for $40 that would be sweet!

I would be good for 4 tickets! *y*

If you go with the courier idea, I'd be happy to volunteer.  Not only do I live in the tristate area, but I've found that shipping to my apartment by school is tax free, and saves about $40US

These ideas about couriers are great and I would have no problem allowing some one to do it! But, it will be up to the winner if they want to go this route or having it shipping to them.

Good plan.

Unless I've missed something (which is quite possible) we haven't actually definately said we're going ahead with this. There were various concerns raised.

RAS & I have a suggestion about the drawing of the winner, hopefully without jumping on jamieīs toes, as heīs the father of this great idea *sweet*!

Our spin on this is as weīre about 15 people from the forum going to the Eurobrick Event in Germany around 27-29th of april *y* , it would be:
  • Fun
  • Fair - maybe we can use a LEGO CEO as the offical
  • Photo/video oppertunity
to have the draw there X-D!

Special UCS Falcon Raffle Tickets will of course be made in advance, maybe our wizard of skins & banners can come up with one X-D!

Draw On

Cool, see if he will donate a Falcon before telling him about he contest! If he says no, then see if he will draw the winning name.

Other than that, if I am not involved in the drawing. I am buying ticket or 2!

Mike, one last thing, my toes hurt now! Thanks, chubby! :-P

I think it would be great if you guys could do this at the Eurobrick event in Germany.  Even better if you can get a LEGO official to draw the name.  If that is not posible, I have a suggestion on how to make this as impartial as possible:

You need two members who are not participating in the drawing.  You could have one person make a list of all the participants and give them a number.  You would then have a second person pick a random number between 1 and the number of participants.  Obviously, the person picking the random number is not supposed to see the list and therefore has no idea and can't fix the drawing.  The person who matches up with the picked number wins.

Since I was not going to participate in the drawing, I would be happy to help and fill one of these roles if needed.

What a great way to get someone a Falcon.  Nice going Jamie!
