    Yeah, the MOA is all about money now.

    Fwiw - 5000 new members = $250k/year of recurring revenue.

    Got my 5 tickets/bar codes yesterday with the wrong first name on them. Called the main # and a very helpful young lady sent it to the back office for review. She called me back 20 minutes later and said they've noted the discrepancy and all other information connecting the tickets to me are correct.

    Don't forget federal income tax, possibly sales tax. That "free" motorcycle could cost you $6,000 or more.

    I know a guy that won a custom chopper back in the chopper craze. He didn't really want it, just dropped his name in in the box for the heck of it. The bike was valued at $60K, paid something like $12K income tax, state and local wanted sales tax on it too something like another $4K. He never rode it, put it up for sale right away, sat on it for two years, spent money on advertising, pain and suffering, sold it finally for $20K. made Less than $5K on the deal, said he wishes he had never one it, it was not worth it.

    I never enter bike or automobile raffles unless I really want the prize.

    I don't know about Washington state but in Iowa you don't pay local option taxes on a vehicle.

    Same for me most of the time.
    In this case it's for a good cause, so I bought a ticket.

    I gotta tell ya, with what's been done to those bikes, I'll pass.
