SAVE PASKAPOO!!! RAFFLEon 19/08/2008, 11:08.
The Speedboard and Longboard Association of Calgary (SLAC) will be running a fundraiser raffle from Aug. 22 to Oct. 1st.
SLAC is the Alberta Non-profit Society that organized the extremely ambitious 2007 Paskapoo Downhill Rodeo.
In 2007 prior to the race a major sponsor (and a few minor sponsors) reneged on a verbal contact after our drop-dead date which in turn forced SLAC organizers to run a deficit or be forced to cancel the 2007 race . Realising that a large number or riders had already booked international flights, SLAC members pressed forward and when the dust settled the event was negative in excess of $20,000. SLAC has been tirelessly trying to get out of the red since.
"Help Save the Paskapoo Downhill Rodeo Raffle" has the potential to reset SLAC back to ZERO! Ever since the S.O.S was put out to the skateboard industry on July 2nd, the response was unbelievable and SLAC has since received products for our raffle amounting to over $10,000.
To purchase tickets CLICK HERE and follow the links to the raffle page. You can order as many tickets as you like.
SLAC's goal is to sell 2000 tickets at $10 a ticket. This will result in SLAC being brought out of debt and will allow our group to refocus it's energies into the 2009 Paskapoo Downhill Rodeo. Stats of the number of tickets sold on each package will be updated weekly on the Raffle page so you know your chances of winning. SLAC will only make available 2000 tickets in total for the entire raffle.
Thanks for the support.
