BUY IN = $5 – We kicked around the idea of doing more money, but I think we should get as many people as possible. I included a vote option in the form below in step 2.
In the past some have put in more money, but let it be known, if we win, we will still all get an equal share! But we will all thank you greatly for the extra contribution, and I will let it be known who was nice enough to bump it up (if you so wish, or I can keep it anonymous).
DEADLINE: Today Wednesday November 28, 2012
EXAMPLE WINNING SCENARIO:
We win $250,000, 50 people bought in, we split $250,000 – tax cut / 50, so we all get $X,000. We’ll have to look into the tax issue if the amount is of a concern, but we can worry about that later. I am thinking I take the tax cut, and say we’re an anonymous group of friends who won. I will then divide it up how you like … I can mail a check, cash, MO, etc. We have options, but like I said, let’s not worry about it until we win 🙂
or split it pretax and you collect yourself and pay your taxes. If I recall someone said that was an option.
STEP 1 :
send $5 to paypal address : ENDED

If you would like to send as Amazon.com gift card that is OK too – ENDED
STEP 2 :
Enter your email address here :
This way I can keep track of everyone two fold, and then send a quick email once I get the actual tickets and we can split up the data entry work as we did last time. I will also update this blog post.
If you want to chat, post in my forums, it is pretty empty right now and open to GUEST so you do not have to log in for the time being :
UPDATE : 4:10 PM CST
Going to pick up the tickets nowl.
We got $410, 82 participants, IF we win, I will accurately see who paid and get a real number and namelist. Not everyone put their name on the email list.
UPDATE: 6:23PM CST
Purchased $430 worth of tickets, we had a few stragglers come in at the last second. Email sent, if you did not get it, go ahead and post and I will re-email. We do not want to post the google document link as it is publicly allowed to edit by ANYONE, who knows who reads this blog :shifteyes:
UPDATE : 11:30pm
We only won $20 🙁
