  • Bean bags... idea!

    Hey Beanies,

    I just had a whacky idea... (feel free to shoot me down in flames if Im way off-track on this).

    Coffee Bean Bags are cool.

    We all enjoy seeing the pictures in the forum and I assume people on the forum would like to own one (or more).

    I would expect that dividing co-op bags between the co-op would be a nightmare and this is where my whacky idea comes into play...

    We raffle them off!!!

    $1 per raffle ticket. People can add raffle ticket(s) to their invoice to go in the draw for the beanbags on that invoice.

    What happens to the dollars raised?

    It could cover postage of the beanbag to the winner (and/or their order too) and the left over monies could go into a "kitty" to cover the web site expenses (tis nice that R&R cover it now but the co-op should pay for it).

    What do you think?

    Some people like their Footy jumpers behind Glass :, CoffeeSnobs like their Coffee Bags behind Glass. Thats what were planning to do here, over the top of our Café bar. ;D

    You know Andy its not an entirely stupid idea, is it?

    Its up to R&R though................not ours!

          Auction them with a proportion of proceeds (less postage) to FairCrack....Though I guess the really good ones might actually do better in a raffle.....

          Just a thought ;-)

                  I love the idea of owning a coffee bag thats traveled from origin, to my home.

                  I reckon a raffle in conjunction with BeanBay is a good idea. Id be in for a ticket or two each month.
                  Maybe it could be that you have the right to purchase 1 x TICKET for each 2.5kg bag of green you are buying at that months BB.

                  Personally I think $1 or $2 per ticket is a fair price if it means we help CS towards becoming a self sustaining entity...

                      July 2004 ??? Yeah, I must admit I did not notice that, until you pointed it out.
                      I assumed the five people replying ahead of me in recent days, might have noticed something like that also

                      Still a good idea IMO. And if CS Site Ops doesnt need the $$$ then Im sure the FairCrack fund would be a worthy recipient.

                          Despite being an auditor I dont check those sorts of things (here).
                          I come here to relax.

                            I noticed it, but Ive been hoping that if enough people showed interest, Andy might revive the idea.
