    Default Happy Hour Raffle!

    Since the opening happy hour is no longer, need to make some changes to this raffle. Here are the new rules:

    1. Respond to this thread that you want to be part of the raffle.
    2. Your response will be your raffle ticket in that I'll add your forum user name to a list of names.
    3. Entries close at midnight on January 11 because I'll need to find time to compile the names into a list and don't want to have rush doing that the day of the happy hour.
    4. During the virtual happy hour, I'll use an online app I found that will randomly pick a name from the list for the winner.
    5. YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE PRESENT TO WIN.
    6. I will contact the winner to arrange receipt of prize.

    ORIGINAL POST:

    Why wait until the end of Freezing Saddles to win a Pointless Prize??? So I'm going to do a raffle for a piece of kit that someone could actually use during Freezing Saddles. This will be awarded at the happy hour, so YOU MUST BE PRESENT TO WIN.

    What am I raffling? A pair of men's GORE C5 Thermo Bib Tights+. These are size XS but the way GORE has re-done their sizing, it's really more like a size S. I have a previous model year size S and the new model year size XS fits me just the same (FYI, I'm 5'8" and 130-ish pounds). Here is GORE's men's sizing chart:

    The winner doesn't have to be a man or this size but you're going to get men's size XS (which is more like S). You can always gift them/pay them forward to a deserving soul.

    Some product info:
    Compacting thermal bib tights with DWR and WINDSTOPPER® fabric along the groin protect from cold and road spray while insulating and supporting your muscles. A breathable WINDSTOPPER® cup offers additional wind and spray protection while creating space. For riders tackling endurance rides in harsh conditions.

    These are new but without tags (so they can't be exchanged). Because they've been worn once for a "photo shoot" for the PEZ holiday gift guide. But not ridden in. Yes, they've been since washed!

    So here are the rules:

    1. Respond to this thread that you want to be part of the raffle.
    2. Your response will be your raffle ticket in that I'll add your forum user name to a list of names.
    3. Entries close at midnight on January 11 because I'll need to find time to compile the names into a list and don't want to have rush doing that the day of the happy hour.
    4. I will bring my laptop to the happy hour and use an online app I found that will randomly pick a name from the list for the winner.
    5. YOU HAVE TO BE PRESENT TO WIN. If the first name drawn from the list isn't present, I'll draw another name and keep doing so until we have a winner who is at the happy hour.

    Please let me know if you have any questions.

    YES, enter my name into the raffle, although I suspect they are not, ahem, PEE FRIENDLY for the ladies. The wind resistance is a big selling point. Cute suspenders.

    Uh ... yes. The GORE women's Ability Thermo Bib Tights+, however, are female friendly. Sorry I don't have a pair of those to raffle!

    126 views but so far you're the only person to sign up. If that trend continues, you'll win by default.

    I guess I should add some competition and make it a 50/50 chance. I'm sure I know some tiny people that I could give them to. No way I would ever use an XS/S.

    I could potentially fit into this, depending on the week. Count me in!

    I can maybe fit into an XS. If you're OK with a slacker/friend of BAFS entering who isn't located in the area, count me in. If not, then I'll survive and I understand.

    Hey Josh! I need the winner to be able to pick them up for me, so you'll have to survive and understand. HAPPY NEW YEAR!
