I had about a half second of mixed terror and exhilaration between the "twenty" being read out, and the "nine". Congrats hpi :) .

I do like a good roffle, and as long as my losing streak lasts I'll be a happy shitter!

Had no need for the car and no where to put it, but feel really disappointed I didn't win it for some reason.

Great way to draw the winner of the roffle. I need to get rid of the AX in a few weeks - perhaps something along the same lines but getting a (proper) celebrity to pick the winner.

I'm just trying to think of other ways of doing a roffle.


- I quite liked the method used at SF16 where the names of the entrants were written on the tyre (in appropriate sizes of segments according to how many tickets they had bought), then the car was jacked up and taken up to speed, then left to freewheel down. There was a stick mounted on the wheel arch and wherever it landed won, wheel of fortune style.

- Fill a bag with 60 ping pong balls (with the numbers written on them), then drive the car being roffled over the bag. The one that lands furthest away is the winner.

- Another bag-of-ping-pong-balls idea. Put the bag over the exhaust of the roffle car and rev it until the bag pops. The ball that lands furthest away wins.

Mark the lawn out into 60 equal sized, numbered squares, then let the dog out. Whichever square the dog shits in first is the winning number. Proper shite roffle!

I had another ping pong ball related idea.

60 ping pong balls thrown into the car. Drive the car around a short course with some tight corners and some bumps.
Then get somebody else, while blindfolded, to root around inside the car. The first ping pong ball they find wins.

I am now determined to find one of those air powered ping pong ball bingo machines in a dusty garage somewhere.  The ones used on Swap Shop etc!

Would give the non payer another poke. Both of them are outstanding are good chaps and highly unlikely to be avoiding paying.
