As I've now been delving into more and more of this forum. I've noticed the Mark Durham raffle. It's very noble what everyone is doing, and Mark's life will obviously live on thru everyone that visits and uses this site. I have very little money and for me to do anything music related, I sell gear I've accumulated over the years. Iwas going to buy a kit by selling off gear that I mentioned in another thread, even though I had already bought this turret board, but I think now I'd rather build with the parts I have on hand, and give the $100.00 your asking for tickets. I'm just going to give the money though. So I guess I better get started with pics.
Thank you again for this forum, My thoughts and prayers go out to Mr. Durham's family.
Jac

What's the latest word on the fundraising effort for the Durham family?

Any information on the prize list and projected date of the raffle?

Very best regards,

-Dana

We are shooting for all builds to be completed by the end of this month (Sept. 06), and then holding the drawing on Oct. 31. This should give us ample time to promote and get more donations as we will have photos of the builds and other prizes.

I believe that we are no longer calling it a raffle for legal reasons, thus we are accepting donations to the Mark Durhum Memorial Fund, which will be holding a prize give away on Oct. 31 for those who have been so kind as to donate.

I'll shoot a message to S2 to get an update on the girls. Last I heard was that they were headed back to Texas and that things were looking up.

I'm just waiting on some tube sockets (kindly donated by allynmey), and with luck I'll be able to hit the deadline (18watt classic build). :D

Mark,

Did you post a copy of that pic in the Gallery?

HOLY CRAP DUDE 8O That's beautiful!!!!!!! 8O 8O 8O 8O

I gotta take some shots of Paul's build and the JTM45 (which I haven't even unpacked yet :oops: ). Paul is an artist as well. His build is killer!!!!

Wiggle, what exactly was Mark Durham's role in the life of that JTM45?

Southbay, are you still down to donate some of those wicked Scumbacks?

What I would like to do is maybe get together with some of the local forum guys and put down some clips of these 2 builds that we can post here and get a bunch of photos. Jim can bring the Epi LP he's so kindly donating, other's bring the guitars and record some nice tasty tidbits.

Thanks for the update, man.

It sounds like there will be quite the fine collection of prizes.

You guys are great!
