Arrow EPIC ARC Raffle Thread

And the winner is....



120 Gallon Tank Raffle!

At this year’s Xmas Party, we will be giving away the biggest prize in ARC history:

120-gallon Tank with Stand, Canopy, and as many "trimmings" as we can pack on along the way.

Throughout the year, we will announce items that we are adding to this massive raffle.

The members who attended this year's first meeting were already awarded the first tickets. Tickets will continue to be available for purchase--at meetings only--throughout the year. Five tickets for $25

See below for the Xmas party raffle prize thus far.

  • 120-gallon Tank, Stand, and Canopy (January Announcement)






  • (2) SEA Systems SSR-200 Media Reactors (June Announcement)
  • ONE YEARS WORTH OF SALT (July Announcement)
    For further details on salt, please read on in the thread.
  • Protein Skimmer w/recirculation pump! (August announcement)

    And what good is this skimmer without a studly recirculation pump? Nada! So, we really sweetened the deal by including a Blueline 40 pump!

Our tank now has a heart! Wahoo! Adjustable speed pump. SWEET!





Tired of those loud, whiny pumps? The BlowHoleTM runs silent and has three adjustable speeds.

Unique features:
3-Speed Adjustable Flow switch

The BlowHoleTM pumps by ReeFlo feature a unique 3-speed AdjustaFlow switch that allows you to instantly choose flow rates, pressure and watt draw from three different settings. Cut the flow and watt draw in half during the night or at feeding time and then instantly switch back when desired.

Very Low Heat Transfer
The BlowHoleTM pumps feature a FlowThru design that prevents the water from picking up motor heat while churning inside the pump head. The BlowHoleTM uses an aluminum cast motor which dissipates heat before it can reach the water.

Nearly Silent Operation
The BlowHoleTM pumps employ graphite motor bearings to ensure the quietest operation. You will have to put your ear near it to hear it.

Features:
Unique 3-speed AdjustaFlow switch
FlowThru Design
Nearly Silent operation
Less than 6x6x6 footprint
1x 1 threaded fittings
2 Year replacement warranty

BH1450
Ideal for tanks from 100 to 150 gallons
Pressure rated-Up to 30 of max head pressure
Runs Silent
Great for installers who require a pump that can be easily adjusted in the field to various tank sizes

I think people have pretty good odds at this point. Here is a picture of the tickets sold thus far.

Hey, those are all my tickets. Sweet, instead of moving the tank from the garage to my truck I can just move it in the house. When can I pick up the lights and return pump? :-)

That was the intent, but, we may open it up to online purchase.

ok someone was BOUND to ask this, and it may be posted and just missed, but do you have to be present to win? I would buy more than a few tickets for this, but the odds of making a meeting are slim to none.

THAT being asked if you CAN buy and win by remote are we able to buy tickets with paypal?

someone can pm these answers to me if they have already been answered or something

thanks,

a remote member

brandon

Edit: to add to the above, if we do open online purchases up... i don't see anything wrong with THEN asking a remote winner to come GET the prize at a local shop or something, that way shipping costs are eliminated.

think i read somewhere you have to purchase them at meetings. this would add attendance to the meetings. so if they opened paypal purchase then they would or could get a lot more money but then it would be a profit issue.

You do not have to be present to win. We will hunt you down like the IRS to deliver the prize.

Good catch on my wording. We will NOT be delivering the prize. Rather we will track you down to notify you of the prize. It's the winners responsibility to transport it from its storage location.

Looks like we will be having the April meeting very close to you and I both due to a booking problem with the speaker we had. Stay tuned.
