I do have a few questions -

1.) Are we going to restrict "New Members" from joining the raffle like last time? As to prevent people from creating multiple accounts?

2.) Say the winner happens to be in a different country, other than the U.S.. The price of buying and shipping the fish is close to $100, but we've only set a goal for donors of $70? What then? Do we restrict who can enter via country and cost of shipping to that location?

3.) Transhippers have different prices- I swear by using Linda, she's only an hour from me and does an amazing job packing. But, she is fairly expensive. There may be a transhipper that is closer to the winner that is cheaper- that causes more fluctuation in the price. Do we stick with using Linda, or leave it to the discretion of the winner?
1) if it worked last time, I say keep this restriction as it makes a lot of sense.

2) this is a tough one, especially if the prize includes a tank and heater. Why dont we just leave the goal at $100 and if you are overseas, then the prize is only the fish. If in the US, then you would also get a tank and heater. How does this sound? It would be great if we could get some of our international members to chime in on their thoughts.

3) i say just stick with Linda, since you know her best. I've read in other posts about troubles other members had with other transhippers, so better to be on the safe side.

Are you going to start a new donations thread? I'll send cash your way tomorrow.

1) I think keeping this restriction is very important and shouldn't be lifted.

2) I think we should hold this contest to only the states and this way the price stays roughly the same everyone entering. Personally I think The way we did the contest the first time was fine.

3) Stick with the transhipper he used before and this way we know which fits better would usually be my answer, but personally I would much rather have the winner decide because after all there are transhippers that are driving distance to some members or even a few hours away. Do I'd rather have the winner choose because it could also prevent the chance of a DOA.

you can't enter yet, KadenJames is in the collection stage of the contest, collecting donations.

US only? we have to remember that people of many different countries are on this site, and it wouldn't be fair to disclude them. sure it might be cheaper, but wasn't the original idea of this contest to provide people who wouldn't normally have a chance to get one of these aquabid Betta fish due to pricing or other reasons a free fish?

I'm sure Kaden can tell everyone how much they have or have not donated and who has donated so far. IMO this should. Be kept to herself. Maybe she could tell the donor Personally in a PM how much that donor has donated, but I dont think it's a food idea to have everyone with access to see who has and has not donated.
