This is just a suggestion but I think it would be a really good Idea If you put on a raffle for sumething a little cheeper.

Example: Corn snake

Raffle ticket price: $5 a each

If you did this people may have a greater interest because they are cheeper, smaller more popular and easier to keep. Some other herps you could raffle are: beardies, ball pythons, leopard geckos, and other things.

This is ONLY a suggestion!

Personally, i dont think it is the fact that the tickets are too pricy or that theres a lack of ppl wanting to participate...more like ppl getting off there lazy a$$ to go to the bank or use a CC that they dont have....Just my

If everyone lived on the same sure 100 tickets would have there an easier way to get money???

IMHO, I don't think that the raffle was open long enough to give it a chance. I expected it to be open for a month, but it closed after only a week and change...

Also, $20 is a fair ticket price, but even still, some people may not be able to afford to enter at that price

I would've entered if boas and pythons were legal here... if the next draw is for a corn or a leopard gecko or something I will <b>so</b> be in... :rsmile:
various cornsnakes, 0.1 black pine snake, 1.0 uromastyx geyri, etc.

I know what u mean Cas .. same here .. All boas and Pythons are Illegal in Ottawa..

There only by-laws though - Its never stopped me or hundreds of others in Ottawa..

But lucky for us .. Our by laws are changing soon enough to the same as Toronto's // Its about time too!

On an other note,

Linds and Grant had a point .. 20$ may be a bit .. there was not enough time for ppl to enrole and it is defenetly a pain in the a$$ to try to get the money to you Jeff..

I had the 20$, but I don't have the time to try to figure out a way to get it to you .. The idea was great but there must be a more effecient way of doing it?

1.3 Coastals 6.6 Jungles
3.4 West Papuan 1.0 Bred'ls
1.1 Yellow condas 0.1 Sebea

**looking for female Bredl's python**

Yeah i see what everyone is saying.. I also called it off because i know it was going to take a long time and i didnt want to hold everyones money for any length of time. The reason the tickets were $20.00 is because this was a $1000.00 animal give or take and if we raffle off a $200.00 snake of course tickets would only be $5.00! so we'll see whats next! but look out this week for our free give away! cheers! is offline
