    Superstakes tickets - How many already sold?

    Anyone know how many Superstakes tickets have already been sold? Just wondering the odds for the Early Bird drawing.

    Thanks,
    Dick

    I bought one early last year to get in on the early bird drawing but I don't have one this year. Having the national rally admission included was a big draw for me last year but it's not included now.

    I may just sit it out.

    Same here. The incentive to buy isn't there without the rally fee included. So I may pass on the drawing as well.

    A little less than 3,000 in the early bird drawing based on the most recent numbers. Some last minute orders are still being processed.

    The dynamics have changed a little without the rally entry fee, but you do have 12 separate chances to win and the two bonus drawings. And, if you want to make a friend a member, bonus drawing B includes a free one year membership for a new member. The odds of winning are still very good and the Foundation can use your support.

    Good luck.

    Can't win without a ticket

    If I had not bought a ticket last year, I would not be riding my K1600GTL. Thank you sweepstake. I suggest you guys buy a ticket.

    Thumbs up VERY glad you won....

    ...with your PURCHASE of a ticket!! Many of us were very alarmed last year when it came to our attention some folks were holding a ticket that,
    get this... WON a TICKET, during one or more of the MOA Weekend Getaways! That was hard earned cash spent for a chance to win by many
    folks, many like myself purchased two because of Rally fee included. Never discovered if anyone that had won a ticket, had also won a grand prize.
    But I was certainly uncomfortable with the decision by someone that gave away the opportunity that others paid for...that was not part of the
    marketing campaign to the membership. Sort of like non-members at the National Rally winning a bike... just doesn't seem right.
    So enjoy that GTL my friend... your ticket purchase reflects exactly why I also bought ONE this year...but not two. .

    Really? MANY of you were alarmed? It didn't bother me at all. Don't auto manufacturers give away cars to game shows, charities, and the like that you and I, even if we worked for them, would have to buy a car of our own? I just don't see where the outrage can come from. Knowing that MOA gave away a couple of entries as prizes will further interest in the Getaways and help the organization as a whole.

    And no, I didn't win the bike on a free ticket, I bought one, and I did again this year.

    Sweepstakes....

    .....definition as defined in Webster's United States dictionary: "Lottery whose participants put up the money given as the prize".

    While BMW Motorad may well have benefited from the promotion, and for sure the MOA Foundation did...it was no game show.
