HAHAHA heres an idea that so silly it would work great

we have just over 2000 members.

if we all chipped in once a month $1 and put our name in a hat. One person each month would win a Jem LOL..

Hell if we had 400 people chip in $5 we could easily do it..

Would be cool to do, for those of us who dont have Jems cause of finance issues. $5 for a 1 in 400 chance I would do it each and every month.

Ok im bored back to looking at evilbay

Re: HAHAHA heres an idea that so silly it would work great

I think its a great idea.. We could get a very trust worthy person say Glenn or Rich to collect the money.

Then when there is enough to purchase a Jem of what we would decide on we purchase from Rich(ibanezrules) and send it to the winner.

Its a great idea in my mind.. I would not hesitate to enter.. even if it was $25 a month.

Re: HAHAHA heres an idea that so silly it would work great

Why not enter for $2/month with the extra dollar going to for the costs of running the site

Re: HAHAHA heres an idea that so silly it would work great

like I said I think we should do $5-10 a month what evers left after the Jem is bought can be go to the site for bandwidth and improvements?

figure lets say 1/4 of the people on here enter in the raffle (these are rough numbers)

500 x $5 = $2500

average Jem price new $1900-$2100 for 7VWH

$400 going to the site and Rich or Matt will benefit from the extra business.

or...

500 entrys x $10 = $5000
average Jem price new $1900-$2100 for 7VWH

you get the point..

Can also work with Jeremy and his guitars, sims custom shop, EKG, Soloway etc etc..

Re: HAHAHA heres an idea that so silly it would work great

Of course the "each and every month" part would get less and less people entering since I doubt once someone won they would keep playing.

Re: HAHAHA heres an idea that so silly it would work great

Ok now im really thinking about this. LOL its a brilliant idea

Postive Notes
*Jemsite become more efficient, it can run on better servers, have more bandwidth for other features etc.
*One Lucky SOB each month will win a prize that is incredible for the amount of entry
*Our main contributers can/will be recieving more product placement, and products sold. ie, Soloway/LGM can probably use the extra advertisement. Matts Music and Ibanezrules will get full price(were not asking for discounts) which would help them.
* Brings something unique to the website.

Negatives
*Someone has to collect the money and make the drawing
*We would have to limit the entrys to first 500 people to keep things honest and decent odds

I would love to sit down and seriously talk to Glenn, Rich, Matt, Jeremy etc etc.

Re: HAHAHA heres an idea that so silly it would work great

Sounds like a great idea. Only thing is the guitar should come from Rich and alternate between which new models he currently has in stock (BRMR, UV777BK, VWH e.t.c.)
