3rd Annual Server Space and Bandwidth Fund Raffle

The 3rd Annual Server Space and Bandwidth Fund Raffle will take place on Friday, September 2nd, 2005, at 8:00 p.m. in the Mego Museum chat room.

Here’s the story – we use a lot of space and bandwidth, and someone has to pay for said space and bandwidth. That somebody is me, (Joe) and the yearly raffle (along with the Amazon link at the top of the message board page and other ads) is my attempt to recoup some of that cost. The raffle goes to fund the server and bandwidth fees incurred by the Museum, which are always on the rise because we folks are a chatty bunch who enjoy posting pages and pages of photos!

Donations are now being solicited from the Mego community at large. You can donate something Mego or Mego related (or just toy related, or fantasy/science fiction related, or… well, you get the drift) worth $10 or more. The donations will be corralled and counted by our very own Rob Chatlin, who will then split them into a grand prize, first prize, second prize, and third prize.

For details on how to donate prizes, please contact Rob at or PM him at rchatlin. All prizes should have reached Rob by August 20th, 2005.

Just like last year, tickets are $10.00 each, and you can buy as many tickets as you want. The more tickets you buy, the better your chance at winning something!

You can purchase tickets through Paypal, check, or money order. My Paypal address is, or you can click the banner at the bottom of the Mego Talk page. You can also buy tickets through If you want to send a check or money order, please PM me at jderouen or e-mail me at for my mailing address.
