  • Another PT lotto...SOLD OUT.................................

    SOLD OUT

    You may be tired of seeing threads on this fig but I have an extra Ponte Tresa plant I need to do something with (see images). I considered an ebay auction but decided to use it to do a lotto to benefit the ourfigs forum. I am going to use the same template as Frank (FMD) already used to offer up a couple PT and GN cuttings. Wills has kindly offered to administer the contest. I like the idea of a lotto rather than an auction because then everyone has a chance to win for a modest amount of cash. Have fun and good luck!
    • 100 squares are available to members of Ourfigs, numbered from 00-99
    • Cost is $7.00 per square.
    • Maximum squares a player can buy is 3. First come, first served.
    • Numbers will be randomly picked for you.
    • PayPal preferably as a friend or family member
    • Wills will confirm payment and your number(s) will be assigned.
    • We will post the lotto grid every day of what’s been taken and what is left
    • The drawing will take place 48 hours after all the squares are gone
    • Please include your member name in the paypal notes
    Picking the numbers:
    To keep everything fair the numbers will be picked by the Florida state PLAY-4
    http://www.flalottery.com/play4
    EVENINGdrawing.

    How it works:
    The PLAY-4 draws four numbers, the winner is the first two numbers. EXAMPLE; if the lotto numbers are 5869 then 58 is the winner.

    Paypal address is [email protected]

    Shipping:
    Free provided by yours truly. If you like, I can hold off on shipping until the weather is warmer.

    Continental US only

          How much does it cost to run ourfigs? GrowingFruit.org only costs $300 a year to run. It seems like there is a significant disconnect between the amount of money raised for ourfigs, and the costs of maintaining ourfigs.

            SMatthew,

            "If the community is being asked to donate" I don't believe I have ever asked anyone to donate anything. See that donate button at the top of the page? I did not want it, but I was out voted. I don't ask anyone to donate plants or do auctions or lottos, not once nor will I ever. Now if they sell cuttings on the board it would be nice if they kick back a couple bucks but even that is on a volunteer basis and if they don't, they don't. My way of viewing this is you treat people with the respect they deserve and they will do the same for you, it is how I manage the forum and run my life. People donate to show their support for the forum and I see it as also a sign of appreciation for the work it takes to run a site like this. So with all due respect I don't owe you anything.

            WillsC - I never said you owe me anything. I said you owe the community an accounting of how much money is raised - and where it goes. How much money has this site raised? Are you afraid to tell people that?

            Thank you for your opinion but you do not speak for the community.

                        Donate button on the main page.

                      Funny; I already had donated $5 for the site. I guess I have to donate another $2 to enter in lotto game.

                      Edit: I just donated another $9. I guess that gives 2 squares?

                            I'll take 3 squares even though I usually don't win things like this. I would really like this fig, I've been waiting for the hype to wear off a little, lol. Thanks steve.
