    I will be contacting all the winners next week. Trying to get home from the rally now, but finalizing all the prizes will be the first priority. You won't need your ticket. We have all the numbers and buyers recorded.

    We are also working on posting a complete list of winners and prizes. Just a little difficult to do today getting off the rally grounds and finishing the load out.

    Congratulations to all our winners and my sincere thanks to everyone who purchased a ticket. I hope you had fun!

    I'm just sayn , I've never seen a raffle run this way. Usually it's , " this is for a hat and the number is 3333, this is for a bike and the number is 3334." All done in public . Never have I seen prizes awarded a week later in private with the NAMES and numbers together. I'm just sayn.

    What do you mean in private? The raffle was conducted in public at the rally and it was broadcast live on the internet. The ticket numbers and names and what prize was announced. I actually logged in right in the middle of hearing my name called. There also was a live chat where I spoke to a few really excited and nice people who told me what I had won! Nothing done in private, AFAIK. Of course it will take some time to post the names and corresponding prizes as the rally organizers still have a lot of work to do, and most of them have to ride home. We are only waiting for a comprehensive listing. The winning numbers have been posted in this thread also.

    , numbers , and prizes at the same time in public ... whats not to understand. Looks to me like numbers were picked and later prizes were awarded to these numbers . What am I missing ? maybe I got it wrong.

    You do have it wrong. Please read what I wrote above. The prize was ANNOUNCED, the numbers DRAWN, and the WINNER was named all at the same time IN PUBLIC at the rally, and also broadcast LIVE on the internet.

    You can't get more public than that. Again, we're only waiting for the names and prizes to be posted, They were already announced publicly.

    I saw it mentioned here and then logged into it. I was away from home and had a crappy internet connection and it was continually buffering, but I saw it well enough to see and hear my name called.

    The prizes were all drawn in order as listed in the magazine. Each prize had a specific corresponding winner and number. Many of the winners names were announced live on Friday night. Some we couldn't look up fast enough to inform the crowd, but each person has a specific ticket number and those numbers were posted for each prize as it was drawn.

    All of this was done in public at the Rally, webcast and video tapped for verification. The prize list with winners is being posted shortly as soon as everyone can get off the road and in front of a computer. In fact, I just sent the complete list over to Vince to post as soon as possible after three different people triple checked the numbers, names and prizes to make sure there would be no confusion or discrepancies.

    I can appreciate the concern if you did not see it live or only read about it here recently. This process is the same as a lottery drawing where a number is announced and the winner comes forward with a winning ticket number in hand to claim the prize. Since some did not have their ticket or forgot their numbers, we were working quickly to verify all the names and tickets so that winners can be informed or claim their prize. The only thing that is taking place "behind the scenes" is the verification of identities of winners, W-2 forms, prize claim instructions, etc. and I am sure everyone agrees that this personal information should be kept private.

    All the winners should be up on the web in the very near future. Again, congratulations to all the winners. It was a really fun night!

    All Good!!

    I was at the rally and it appeared to me the sweepstakes staff did a really great job. The drawings were well organized, fair, public, and a lot of fun even though I didn't win squat. I had a little apprehension about spending $100 on a ticket, but including a rally pass was great and the odds sold me on it. I'll buy a ticket next year whether I go to Oregon or not. Heck, I may even spring for one for the wife next year.

    It makes perfect sense that a lot of folks from Missouri won. There were a whole lot of folks at the rally from Missouri and I'm sure they bought a larger portion of the tickets because it included admission and because they were going to be there.

    PS - I don't think I know any of the sweepstakes staff, but much to my initial dismay about the $100 tickets - they had a great idea, did a great job, and it worked out well. Congrats to the staff and the winners!!
