    Do we get to know what the t shirt sizes are and the design and colour

    Looks like a good cause to support. I’ve gone for the buy four get one free option. Hopefully lots of people chip in to support and (maybe) win a bling bike.

    Would love to support, but no choice in the size of the bike? That seems a bit weird.

    The size restriction is because that’s the size they have for this prize. It won’t always be th ecase with prizes gong forward (there will be more raffles) but in this instance the time constraints mean that a full rang eof sizes are not always available.

    Many brands and distributors have a limited range of stock they can use for promotional purposes. This is one such case.

    Is this just a bike in size medium they have provided? So not the bike (in large) as tested by Ross?

    It’s a brand new bike in size medium and not the actual bike tested by Ross. It’s the same model and spec just new and in medium.

    Medium is just fine. All you lanky gits can just donate instead of thinning my chances of winning 😜

    Thanks for clarifying. It was only the posts above that led me to the small print. My first read I thought it was for the large test bike.

    Any upcoming raffles for large framed enduro bikes?

    We are negotiating other raffles but it’s a little early for me to announce, but if things go to plan you will be catered for.

    @Mark
    how are the t-shirts arranged if you donate? No option on donation page. How would you guys know what sizes etc?

    Once you donate, you email Zoe subs@singletrackworld.com with your details.

    All is explained in your ‘order’ confirmation.

    Some very early donators didn’t get Zoe’s email. My first mailshot to the 502 Club Newsletter will also have instructions for t-shirts. essentially drop Zoe an email with your username subs@singletrackworld.com if you haven’t already. She’s managing a massive spreadsheet with everyone on it.

    Good luck and thanks to all those who have entered and donated. The little business you’re supporting is worth it, like all products there are some quirks but it wouldn’t be the same if it didn’t. More importantly you’re keep a great group of people in work.

    If I win, I’ll ride it at Ard Rock and then drop it back at STW Towers on my way home, so they can raffle it again.

    What’s the 502 stand for? I did read the explainer in the “about” expanding section.

    You have an actual server?

    They’re migrating from one cloud service provider to another, the new one charges biannually rather than monthly so they have a £12k bill coming up.

    Donated for completely selfish reasons.

    I can’t imagine waking up one day, grabbing the mobile and going on the forum one day/reading an email that say it’s all closing down.

    I like this place and the mag but there are other times I *need* this place.

    I’m donating as I’m a selfish SOB .

    Thanks Poop.

    As I said in my email, we aren’t a charity so only donate if you think it’s worth it for you.

    If ever there was a time when members and non members need to think about helping out then this is it.

    This forum is unique in what it provides in a multitude of areas and it it was to go would be difficult if not impossible to replace.

    Mark has told it how it is. It now clear for all to see

    It’s up to use now to ensure we help out and it keeps going 🤞

    It absolutely is worth it and I know many will say the same. 👍

    I’ve entered the raffle.

    Is that all I need to do regarding spending the £5 on the Raffall site?

    Mark
    Full Member

    That’s it.

    Now, we haven’t used this raffle platform before but as I understand it you will all have been sent an email containing your ‘raffle tickets’. Apparently if you win you will be notified by email and to claim your prize you need to click a button or something in that email?

    Anyway, at the other end we will be notified who has won by Raffall and we’ll make contact with the winner directly and arrange to get the bike to them. Once the bike arrives the winner then confirms it’s arrived and all is well by clicking another link in the ticket (or some other email – I’m not sure). Once that prize has been confirmed by the winner the raffle ticket money will be released to us.

    This is a learning process for all of us.

    And some have asked why we are using a third party to run the raffle when we’ve always run our own competitions (MegaSack et al). The answer is because raffles are different to free to enter competitions. Money is being handed over for an entry and there are strict rules that need to be followed. Now, while I think we could easily follow those rules ourselves it’s much easier for us to hand over the box ticking and legal requirements to a third party who do this day in day out. It’s one less thing we need to get anxious about. It saves us a lot of time and we have a lot to do already. 10% of the ticket revenue goes to Raffall for their services, which I think is fine – especially as they alos offer guarantees to you guys buying the tickets. If the prize doesn’t show for whatever reason Raffall promise to payout 75% of the ticket revenue to the winner. Although I have no worries about getting the prize to the winner I think that’s a reassuring promise from a ticket buyers POV.

    Ta for the extra info regarding the raffle.

    I’ve read the stuff associated with the upgrade and donated some cash as well.

    Picked up a bottle opener headset spacer thingy whilst i was shopping.

    Entered. It’s almost destiny I’m going to win. I have a 2004 Cannondale Jekyll, a 2017 Cannondale Habit, both of which unfashionable little wheeled, and I leave in  the Calder Valley for easy pickup.

    My birthday is 25th April, so it would a nice pressie….
    So is mine, and it’s a ‘big’ birthday, so back off! 😁

    And it’s my birthday too. Midway between big birthdays and would be nice compensation for only making the shortlist for Big Hitters…..

    Can we cancel the raffle Mark?

    Id sooner pay to see all the birthday boys go at it Hunger Games style via a live stream. 😁

    It’s my birthday this year, so this would make it extra special.

    It’s been a tough year for our family – our nephew Johnny lost his pet grasshopper recently and is struggling to get over it. The grasshopper was a big fan of Cannondale bikes, so if we won, I’d be able to take the bike round to Johnny’s and let him look at it occasionally to remind him of his deceased insect

    Here’s hoping, we never have any luck. Fingers crossed we are lucky this time

    😉

    Raffle entered, will drop a donation at some point
