You make a very good point!How is it that the weather had any impact, the draw was only available for online ticket sales. These would have been completed prior to the weekend, and weather, I assume.
I didn't read the Airventure post as RAAus organising the raffle. Just that Airventure expected them to bail them out. But I didn't have a raffle ticket, didn't go to Airventure and know nothing about the trust.There are inaccuracies in the post from Air Venture and RAAus did not organize the raffle.
the info about the trust as a start
Completed Bushcat is well over 50k. The kit alone is roughly 45k. I just hope Errol and the other sponsors didn't lose money on this ?I suspect the organisers conducted this under the provisions regulated by the Charitable and Non-Profit Gaming Act 1999 (Qld). There is a provision allowing raffles with prizes valued under $50,000 conducted by community associations to be conducted without a permit.
Should unhappy purchasers of tickets wish to complain, the Office of Liquor and Gaming Regulation would be the place to go, although I suspect it would be a pointless exercise that would only hurt people who have given their time to support recreational aviation.
