Hi all, got a pretty fun raffle going and Steve has been kind enough to let me post it over here.
"Have your very own JB for a 3-day weekend!
Basically, I will cover the flight anywhere in mainland US (using miles) on a mutually agreed date (any season), and quite literally be somebody's (or a group's) kite monkey, house cleaner, workshop presenter, personal trainer, or simple arm candy for all three days, share me around or keep the fun all to yourself... Minimum requirement would be a couch or floor space and a sleeping bag, kids and pets okay, I'm not picky. lol
All-day access, three days to pick my brain, learn and play, solo or team, dual or quad, indoor or outdoor, water flying, urban kiting, dogstake, competition skills, you name it, hang out, drink a little wine, name anything (legal and platonic) that we can fit into three days and I'd genuinely love to share it with you.
Entry into this raffle is $5 per ticket, open to mainland US only (lots of miles to go abroad), unless an International participant is willing to cover the airfare, under the same terms otherwise... Would really like to sell at least 200 tickets, but it is what it is and worst case, it would be three days of kiting fun.
I know I can deliver way more than expected, and quite happily, worth every penny...
Some of the ideas and humor that have been thrown around thus far...
It'll be like winning a college student for 3 days.
How do you feel about mending broken fences? Are you good with hand tools? Any experience with clearing fields of prickly cactus? How are you at catching/subduing rattlesnakes? Ever use a hand-plow?
Will be the best $5 I ever spent if I win muuuhahaha
Maybe if I win I'll give one of the days to our one-day northern Indiana kite festival to have John perform and take the other two for personal coaching.
The wife and I are working really hard to try and raise funds for a reliable car, been slow going with so much time and resource dedicated to keeping all of this rolling and no desire to be "profiteers" (i.e. no "shady deals" or overly aggressive marketing)... Once we're mobile, the roof will blow off our greater efforts with regular access to the coast - more video tutorials (got well over 100 more on the scratch board), clinics, presence at events, and just better mental health for having proper mobility.
