    1) What fundraising target do we think is realistic?

    How much money is needed to complete Project May ?
    2) Price per ticket ($5 has been suggested)?

    That sounds good .
    3) Timeframe (fixed or open ended until we reach the target)?

    Fixed with a "provisional threshold" that if not reached is automatically rethought .
    4) Who do we invite (Lansing Heritage only or other forums and websites)?

    I'd expand the reach and look for other financial benefactors - while also looking to increase, overall, the Projects "interest factor" .

    5) Any other issues?


    To increase general interest - the relevancy of this project to others needs to be expanded.

    One such area could be " to buy, test and audition" transducers that are presently available to the DIY crowd .

    - I'm sure the ME150H should be able to compete favourably with the 1500AL. It's a newer generation tranducer and actually obtainable in North America .

    - Additionally, the 2430/1 drivers could be checked out. They are relatively inexpensive. There is presently a group of Heritage posters who have articulated some problems with the incoporation of these drivers into their designs . Project May could develop some insights & guidance in this area if it choose to do so.

    - These "parts" could be subsequently raffled-off at a later date. And that raffle could "roll over into" the funding of another project.
    A future project ?? Buy all the available name brand capacitors for a high-end capacitor "listen off". This $$$ package could circulate for a while amongst those interested with an enclosed evaluation sheet sent along .

    - That's one idea for a second project that would need funding .


    All in all : I'd suggest ; use this present opportunity "of raising capital" to also generate increased interest in the existing project.

    $5 sounds good; low enough for most anyone and many will buy more than one ticket.

    Have a set closing date: makes the procrastinators buy on the last day.

    Opening to outside brings in more money. Just have to be cool with these going to someone who never comes here. So, if it's only about raising the most money, then OK.

    Where's the Link ?

    Am I dumb or is there not a Paypal link yet to buy these raffle tickets ?

    And yes, feel free to take any shots I have left myself open to.

    My .02 cents

    Its a raffle to raise money, and it would be nice to see a forumite win these, but, you will raise more money posting this on PE, audio asylum, etc. So, I say post away and raise as much as you can!

    Just waiting to work out the last of the logistics with Dennis who will be coordinating the raffle. To Dennis - give me a call when you see this.

    most sound like good parameters

    i vote for a provisional close date -- that way if not enough tickets are sold, it automatically extends.....

    also, what about people that don't like to use paypal? paypal has a very bad rep. among quite a few ... check out nopaypal.com for details on this issue.....

    I would suggest posting the auction on DJ boards like wavemusic.com and futureproducers.com as well as others -- helps to increase fund contributions.....
