  • Raffle of MBVS and Scott's Black for our figs

    Hello all,

    I have a couple of extras that I would like to raffle off to support ourfigs.com.

    Disclaimer:
    - These are 1st year trees that I purchased as cuttings from someone on the trusted vendor list earlier this year, they are a member here as well.
    - Not shipping to CA or outside the continental US.

    Here are the rules:
    - no cost to enter, only the winner of the raffle pays to support ourfigs ($30).
    - limited to 10 people. The first 10 people who post in this thread saying "please enter me" or something like that are entered. PMs to Wills or I do not count as entries only posts in the thread.
    - only one entry is allowed per member. So if you post "enter me" 10 times in the thread it only counts as one entry (Sorry Hershell )
    - each entrant is assigned a number based on their position in the thread. First person gets 1, second person gets 2, etc. Tenth person gets 0.
    - a particular number can be requested but can only be requested and assigned once.
    - no entries after Friday Oct 9th at 7pm.
    - we will use the Florida Play4 evening number on Friday Oct 9th to determine the winner. http://www.flalottery.com/play4
    - if the winner doesn't want them (i can't imagine they would not want them seeing they entered the raffle), we go to the next winner.
    - winner is determined by the leftmost number in the lotto number. EXAMPLE; if the lotto numbers are 5869, 5 is the winner. If the person who has 5 doesn't want the trees, then then second number 8 is the winner and so on.
    - Once the winner has been determined, they will pay Wills through his paypal account.
    - once I receive acknowledgement from Wills I will send the trees.

    Good Luck everyone.

    There are 3 prizes:

    ($30) First prize: the Scott's Black and MBVS in the picture below.
    ($15) Second Prize: another extra MBVS that I have. It's not as big but it will be a good start for next year.
    ($10) Third Prize: MBVS cuttings from Frank Bennett. He might include some other cuttings too

    Here are the two first prize trees in the raffle: MBVS(on left) and Scott's Black(on right).
    You may only view thumbnails in this gallery. This gallery has 1 photos.

      Yes, if it's allowable. If he wins, but not interested in the figs, I'll donate to Ourfigs. Von

      If folks want a particular number, just ask for it in this thread. I will periodically update with who has what number.

      The first to request number wins, if you don't care about the number just say "enter me".

              Well it's more that the person I bought the cuttings from gave me extras. Thank you drivewayfarmer (kerry).

              In addition to the larger cuttings, he threw a few pencil sized sticks that took as well.

              I'm just trying to reduce the collection a little before winter storage time. And also make some room for some new varieties.

              I could have worse problems I guess

            OK, I'll play! I'd like #5 please.

                  I have a Scotts Black coming in a trade. I have a MBvs but it has not been as healthy as I would like, it woke up very late compared to similar aged plants and did not bear as well as expected. I would not mind a healthier one.
