Spawn of Franzen Raffle - Results and Tally

Post by ironman » Mon Feb 08, 2016 6:59 pm

So Franny is gonna be a daddy to a little boy. He's been living the life some of us wish we had when we were in our early 20's - guide, fly tyer, world traveler, industry expert, lover of BK Hershey Pie, and noted organic fishing trail fertilizer. Thought it might be rather Drakian to show Slim and his new Family some support.

It's all over but the cryin'

Thanks, everyone who has made this a great success. I spoke with Young Franzen last night from Chile. He was very moved by this show of support.

Here's what we collectively raised here:
97 tickets were sold @ $20/ticket = $1940.00 less $10 for the blank raffle tickets = $1930.00 net

Here's what the plan is: Chris and Jessica are registered in two places, one local and one national. The monies will be used to buy gift cards.

The raffle will take place on Thursday March 10th at Mammosers Tavern in Hamburg, NY at promptly 7pm. Best wings in Erie Co, for anyone who gives two wits. We hope to have a cute bartender to play along. If not, the venue may be subject to change.

The process will be as such:
Your name will be put on a two part ticket, and the number part will be placed into a blind receptacle. It is our most modestly priced receptacle. We will draw in the following order and I will update this thread:

1. Lovely Flies tied by Heero (Page 3) and 1 copy of Mexico Returns by Wooly Bugger won by Bruiser

If you do this I will donate stuff and buy tickets.

EDIT:

It's a Patagonia Black Hole duffel bag 60L in Green.

On it's way to ironman. Like this one in a different color.

New, clean socks might not be a bad gift for Franny himself. Last time I had to take him to the airport, we had to stop on the way to buy socks because he had none.



I have a fishing pole I could donate to this cause. It's used, hope that doesn't matter.

I'm a year into the same predicament so I have neither time nor money.

But I would like to say congrats to NCGuy as well. This would be the first 3rd gen drakian no?
