Hi everyone,

I hope this is allowed since it benefits a charity - Heroes on the Water.

Brand NEW Hobie Outback up for raffle to benefit the NJ and Maryland Chapter of Heroes on the Water. Very limited amount of tickets available. Only 100 tickets will be offered online with up to 50 to be sold at the Susky Flats Kayak Jamboree (where the winning OB ticket will be drawn). Maximum amount of tickets sold is 150.

To purchase your ticket(s) online go: http://www.eventbrite.com/event/5264704874

If you win, the yak is located and can be picked up at Chessie Marine in Maryland or you can arrange to have it shipped.

No you do not need to be present to win. The winner will be notified and you can either pick the Outback up in Maryland at the dealer or arrange (at your expense) to have it shipped.

Lol not sure about that one.

Thanks for your support everyone we really appreciate. For more info on Heroes on the Water and to find a local chapter in your area check out their website: http://heroesonthewater.org/home

It's a great organization that Im honored to be apart of.

Just wanted to update you there are only 2 tickets remaining of the 100 that were offered online. There has been a lot of questions about the rules etc sent to the organizer so here is the info he has posted on the eventbrite page: http://www.eventbrite.com/event/5264704874.

Tickets will be $25 dollars a piece and will be capped at 100 tickets, with one exception. We will sell tickets at the event on April 20th to any who are in attendance. If all 100 tickets are sold, prior to or during the event, and more are wanted by attendees, we will sell up to 50 more that day.

Now that I have you totally confused! Here it is in a nutshell. There is a raffle for a Hobie Outback, color not yet determined. The tickets will be $25 each, with no more than 150 sold. 100 tickets will be available through SFKFJ's Eventbrite account. When you purchase a ticket online, the receipt will be printed out and both halves of the raffle ticket will be stapled to it (theses will be emailed within 2 weeks of the online raffle being sold out). On the day of the event the one half will be torn off and thrown into the pot with any and all tickets sold that day. The name of the ticket purchaser will be hand written onto the ticket half added to the pot to aid in swift settlement of the raffle. A video of the drawing will be posted on the Susky Flats Jamboree website.

The winner of the raffle will receive the donated Hobie Outback and it's included accessories (Mirage Drive, Seat and Paddle.) The winner is responsible for any and all delivery/transport arrangements.


Once again thank you for your support and good luck.
