Title: Britt's Complete Lionheart package Raffle....ALL DONE
Post by: BraddahBill on September 06, 2005, 09:55:08 AM
     

         ******************** :blob8: :blob8: :blob8: :blob8: :blob8:********************



Hot on the heels of the Arc AA raffle, Britt has offered up yet another
awesome amazing package and trust me, this one WILL knock your socks off.

Britt has always been a tremendously generous soul and as such, this raffle
will be FREE. Some of you may be asking, is it appropriate especially given
world and US events at this point in time. I do not speak for Britt, nor
would I seek to put words in his mouth (so take these as my own) but I
would say - instead of giving the money to us, give directly to your
favorite cause. You make the call where your contribution should go, you
make the contribution in whatever form (money, time, one article even
mentioned donating blood for those in medical need, or you could buy $200
worth of $2 flashlights and drive down to the affected areas
:icon_biggrin:), as much or as little as you want. Just follow your own
sense of integrity and do what you feel is right. Then come back and pick
your numbers here :)

This raffle will be for a Lionheart, additional 168 power pack, holster,
two cells, red tipoff filter (think it's a Surefire), Pila battery charger
and UCL glass lens. As you can see this is Lionheart #299.

Did I say pick a number? This raffle will follow the traditional
pick-a-number system, as before, except I'm too scatterbrained to keep
track of the numbers so I'll get my computer to do it for me. This way
there's no chance of someone picking a number that's already taken.

I was asked to give non-Lionheart owners special consideration, so they get
to pick THREE numbers instead of one. This will operate on the honor
system, if you DO NOT have a Lionheart, then you should click on the
non-Lionheart-owners link. Of course, if we do happen to find you have a
Lionheart after you picked three numbers, you'll be disqualified on the
basis of dishonesty and the package will go to the next eligible person so
don't say we didn't warn you!

Lionheart owners are still welcome to participate but will only be
permitted to pick one number.

This raffle will end after TWO HUNDRED and NINETY NINE numbers have been
picked or 14:00 hours, Sunday, 11th September 2005, GMT. Please
calculate your own time zone offsets. My favorite digital timepiece is
Worldtime from pawprint.net (http://www.pawprint.net). (299 - the
number of the Lionheart.. :rotflmao:)

The reason I'm using GMT is that it's easy to calculate, simply click on
the small digital clock in the bottom right hand corner of your screen.
Click the "Time Zone" tab and you will see your GMT offset. For example,
(GMT -05:00) Eastern Time would mean you deduct 5 hours from GMT, so 14:00
- 5 = 9:00AM, then you apply your daylight savings (10AM). Otherwise let
the calculator do it for you :)


The raffle starts NOW. The moment you see this, go ahead!

Please choose the correct link to pick your numbers:

NO I do not have a Lionheart (http://kevin.htgk.org/nonlh.php)
(three chances)

YES I have a Lionheart (http://kevin.htgk.org/lh.php) (one chance
only)



Here are some pix to whet your appetite in the meantime.

There are still plenty more for the rest. Luckily I decided to open up 299 slots, 299 being the number of the Lionheart. :icon_biggrin:

Well, now that I picked numbers, I would like to thank Britt for the opportunity to win a legendary Lionheart and Kevin for the great set-up for number selection. I've seen the mess some give-aways can create!

Got to shop for food later and the area Pick-n-Saves' are taking donations for the Red Cross. I'll write a check with the extra going that route.

Oh yes, Hi to all on the MBF! I see a lot of familiar names........I also see another dozen folks have registered since I did last week.

Wow!  What an offer.

I owned a Lionheart at one time, but had to sell it.  (Oh the misery!)  I have missed it, and wished several times that I hadn't needed to sell it. 

Despite the fact that I am not likely to win, this act of generosity has been a very bright moment in my day.  Thanks Britt!  A wonderful act in the face of the Katrina tragedy.  Kudos.

Thanx Britt...just a question?
I took three numbers, 183, 184, and 184 again, instead of 185.
I clicked "Submit" instead of chainging the second 184, to 185.
Could this be rectified at all?
If not, at least the folks in the South are getting help.
Thanks again Britt, and Charlie....

Was giving the non-LH users a little more time to pick before putting my number in.  Looks like this one's doing really well.  I must say this is the best "pick a number" system I've seen yet--no chance of duplicate numbers, immediately updated list, and email confirmation of number.  Beautifully done.  Thanks for the very generous donation.

It went to a good guy.. check out his post in this thread : http://flashlight-forums.com/index.php?topic=541.0

Kinda makes it seem like karma is at work :)

The numbers were prepicked by a RNG at random.org and sent to Cathi for safekeeping even before I sent BraddahBill the raffle's first post, so neither of us would have known beforehand who would win. It was nail biting for both of us until we saw 253 had been drawn, then I came across his post and I thought "how fitting".

Do contact me with your shipment address so we can get your new toy on the road to you. CONGRATULATIONS DUDE!!!!! :)

Since I was blessed enough to win the raffle I just wanted to let your know how all this has effected me.
My girlfriend works in healthcare in Pensacola, FL. She and all of her family have been hit very hard by the hurricanes of the last two years. From this experience I have learned that one of the first things disappear during a disaster where the power is out are ALL the batteries. So being the good boyfriend I am ;) I bought her a crank powered led light that she loves, she is not the flashaholic that I am. So this past week after Katrina, I was at a local flea market here in TN and ran into a dealer who had the shake lights that I was able to negotiate a deal of $5.00 each I felt they worked fairly well for an inexpensive light and no batteries to boot. So I bought all 40 of the lights he had on hand. I was able to send these to the N.O. area with a company truck hauling water down to the area. The lights were the first items to go even before the water according to our transport driver.
Again Thank You for such a generous raffle!!

dhutcheson,

CONGRATS!!!!!! Britt had wanted this light to go to someone who didn't have the opportunity to get a LionHeart.  It couldn't have gone to a better person IMO I hope you use this light and treasure it!  It's an amazing tool and to boot you can temporarily blind people .... like wives or girl friends for a quick escape...lol

again enjoy it and congrats!!

OK, now I know for *SURE* that it is karma at work here! I was half-serious when I said "buy $200 worth of lights and ship them down to the disaster areas" in the first post, turns out that you really did do exactly that. I can't think of a more deserving guy!

I've received your shipping address and I'll be in touch with Britt to send you the package. Nothing more we need. Thanks!! :)

Dennis, I'm so happy to mail this Lion Heart package to you.  Kevin sent me your shipping information and it will be in today's Priority Mail.  This is more proof of the principle that Britt believes God setup for the benefit of mankind:  the principle of giving.  Receiving this LH package will be an enjoyment for you, but your giving from your heart to help people is a much more enduring reward to you.

I extend my condolences to all of you fine men and women of MBF that didn't win the package, you are all givers and that makes you winners in my opinion.   :thumbup:  Thank you once again for your enthusiasm and great heart!

Kevin, you are a treasure!   :love4:  The software you designed for this made it so smooth for everyone, I enjoyed our emails and even the "nail biting" waiting for someone to pick the winning number.   It's sad to know the winning number and read all the hopeful messages.   :sad1:

Doug, BraddahBill, Darkgear and, of course, Charlie:  Thank you for providing this great forum and for you efforts that made this raffle successful.    :love4:

I had trouble adding an email account for me to Britt's service so that I could register here with my own membership.   I had to perform a system restore on his computer and that made me a little nervous about trying it again.   But Tony the Tech will come over this evening and do it for me. 

Britt called two nights ago and I talked about the contests and your wondefully sweet messages for a good 5 minutes.  He was very moved and appreciative and sends his best regards to all of you.  He thanked Kevin for using this to encourage giving for helping with Katrina relief.   He is very remote but had heard the news on the BBC on a radio.
   
He's been training border security personnel in other countries  in certain hunting skills, such as tracking, for over a year now and will be away for much of the time in the next year.

He apologizes for not being around the forums much and says he thinks about you whenever he uses one of his lights. 

Once again, thank you to everyone and I'm looking forward to the next raffle.

Cathi J.

Just to wrap up, I'm glad all of you had fun and that the light went to someone who truly went the extra mile to earn it. It also serves as a reminder to me that integrity (doing the right thing) is indeed rewarded.

I would also like to extend my thanks to Doug for his extremely valuable suggestions during the setup phase, he recommended that non-LH owners should be given three chances, even though as a LH owner himself he would not qualify for the extra numbers. He too suggested that picking numbers would be more interactive and more enjoyable as opposed to automatic numbering (which would have been easier to implement, as I did for the last raffle).

And last but not least, to all the participants. It's been just as much fun for ME, too! :icon_biggrin:

Guess what I received this morning? :D

This is my first and only Mr.Bulk light and now I know it will not be my last. This light is flawless in fit, finish, and function. My bedside and most used SF has now been demoted to my truck light  :'(. The best part came when it got dark tonight,this is where the Lionheart shines (pardon the pun). You can really see the power this light packs, since I live in a rural area with no streetlights around to pollute the beam. I wish to thank everyone again for everything again.
