Yep, I realize that there has been a door prize of a trip to the next years event. What if we seperated it or did another one that included some special goodies or treatment. Such as a special table for meals and a move to the front of the line kind of pass. Make a special package for this prize include some coupons for some of the local vendors. I will donate a coupon for a couple of milkshakes from whistleing jacks.

Exactly Jim! At the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation banquets we attend there are two "special" tables at the live auction (raffle I think more appropriate for us) and you get special treatment, meals, wine, etc etc I think it would be fairly low cost ratio on the jamboree planner end to give special table, treatment privileges as the prize. I think we could probably drum up a lot of interest/excitment/raffle buyers for something like that at trail jam - just a thought - I personally think it would sell a lot of tickets for that specifc drawing

Like they have done at Winter Convention.

Auction off a table at Jamboree where Merrick personally cooks Steak and Potatoes with corn on the cob and Red Wine.

The table would hold 6 folks and would be waited on hand and foot by Merrick.

The Vancouver 4 Wheelers started the tradition of the Head Table at Winter Convention. It has been a HUGE success. It has raised well over a couple Thousand Dollars since it started in the last few years.

I think it would be a great idea to try it at Trail Jam. I know I would buy tickets or bid on the auction for the table.

Merrick and Kim no longer chair this event. You will have to put up with the services of Sid and Kelda. We will still be there to bid on this service that is suggested. I open the bidding with a bid that Sid and Kelda pay me $5 ea to not have to do this. Do I hear any other bids.

Note: I will donate the payment recieved to a good cause!

I will supply the pink ta ta that you are required to wear while serving dinner.

Sorry to hijack the thread, all great ideas and I think mine is best...
