FYI, posted by Dane on the other board:
"The Bilby Raffle that I have promoted since Dec turns out to be TOTALLY illegal by Washington State law. I was notified of that fact today by a Special Agent of the Gambling Commission. Feel free to call them at 425 776 6751 if you have concerns.
"Because of that fact I am offering everyone that bought a ticket a complete refund on any ticket sales. Please notify me if you would like a refund. Many people asked that there be no refund if we did not sell 200 tickets. I will need confirmation from anyone who bought a ticket via private email @ [email protected]
if you would like a refund or would like to gift the money to the original cause.
"Mad Dog and I personally own ALL the gifts that were offered. When things settle down and I have refunded all who deem it appropriate, those same gifts will be gifted in a LEGAL MANNER to the folks who deserve them."
I (me, RDye, that is) hate to be the messenger. Its not what anyone wanted to have happen, but there's a saying in law about no good deed goes unpunished.
