I decided it would be a good idea to start a new thread for the 2nd raffle we have organized to make sure everyone is aware that there is another raffle ongoing and about to end on May 23rd. Up until now it has been promoted on the original raffle thread for the Sooke net pen which was concluded back at Christmas. There are 1000 tickets available and to date we have sold 400, give or take. Tickets are $10.00 each and all proceeds once again are going to the 2019 Sooke net pen project run by SVIAC. The 2nd batch of 250,000 Chinook smolts are in the pen right now and will be released in a couple of weeks. The first 250,000 have already come and gone with great success and an extremely high survival rate. There are 4 prizes being drawn for this time around. 1. Two - Scotty H.P> downriggers 2. Shockwave S-5 Suspension Seat Module 3. Cap-It tool box of your choice for box of your truck 4. Digital Smoker from Bass Pro We are currently offering a bonus for anyone buying a minimum of two tickets. We had 100 tackle grab bags left over from the canceled 2018 JDF Derby. The sponsors permitted us to keep the tackle and find another way to use it to raise money for the net pen. So for every 2 tickets purchased you will be entitled to a tackle grab bag. (until the 100 bags are gone) There is at least $20.00 worth of tackle in each bag, many have much more. The tackle was supplied by Hot Spot, DuraBaits, Luhr Jensen, Krippled Lures, AP Tackleworks and Pro Troll. Simply email me at email@example.com with your name, phone number, address and a password for an e-transfer. Once I receive the e-transfer I will email copies of your tickets back to you and add your name to the tackle grab bag list. (until they are gone) You can then pick up the tackle at Gizmos Computers on Bay St. Tickets are also available at Sherwood Marine Centre, Island Outfitters, Trotac Marine and Cap-It. These retail vendors do not have any access to the tackle grab bags, they are simply selling tickets.
