Title: Euro 2020(1) Instant Win & Sweepstake (not treading on Sippo's toes)
Post by: bamboonoclue on Monday, June 7, 2021, 15:42:03
Right buggar it, I'm doing it.

Ok with just a few days to go, I don't know about any of you but I've started to get "football tournament fever" - just me? Maybe so but anyone on here that is interested, I will be going ahead with my planned Instant Win & Sweepstake Comp combo. I'd previously mentioned  running this idea with both Costanza and PandaPaws separately but then I got busy and well...life. For what it's worth I think Chris (Sippo) has done a great job and I'm only annoyed that I didn't get a chance to enter his Sweepstake. For starters, Mind is a fantastic charity so nice one Chris :)

The Format
In this comp you'll get a double chance and all get drawn a team like a normal sweepstake but have no fear, if you draw out Finland or even England you still have an opportunity to win! Once you've been drawn your team(s), don't throw away your virtual tickets just yet as I will be drawing one randomly selected (and very lucky) team via something like "Randomizer" to pick the instant winner.

What could you win?
Well the instant winner (drawn on the eve of the Euros) will receive a replica England Italia 90 Football shirt courtesy of FootballShop and a 4 pack of Craft Beers from my kind friends at Bullhouse Brewery (you can check them out here https://bullhousebeer.co.uk ).

As well as the Instant Win, obviously a normal sweepstake will ensue, so those with France, Germany & Belgium etc. can sit back for a month as the rest of the teams fall away. This sweepstake part will have a 1st prize winner and beer prizes for 2nd & 3rd too (see below). This is also part of a charitable effort too, combined with Cancer Research UK and The STFC Trust getting 50/50 of the remaining funds.

Why Should You Take Part/Enter?
Two reasons, on top of the obvious potential of winning something above, you'll also be putting your money towards the two charities mentioned. In September my three sisters and I are taking part in yet another Marathon Hike so this will go towards some way to achieve our collective target (yep, we're prepared to sweat and ache a bit for your kind donations), raising money for Cancer Research UK.

Also the other half of the remaining sweepstake funds will go to the STFC Trust. Obviously in the current climate, the Trust are working quite hard and have my full backing in the direction they choose to take. I have also mentioned this to Terry (PP) as I know he has been putting a lot of effort in for the Trust of late. So actual big kudos to him in that respect and all involved with the Trust.

Breakdown of donations
I'm suggesting an entry/donation of £10 per team with the aim of raising a minimum of £240. Feel free if you wish to donate more, then please do so.

If the minimum is reached we will:
£95 - Cancer Research UK
£95 - STFC Trust
----------------------------
£50 - Sweepstake Winner
----------------------------
£240
----------------------------

Prizes Breakdown
Instant Winner - 1 x Replica England Italia 90 Football Tee & 4 x Bullhouse Beers
----------------------------
Sweepstake Winner    - £50 & 6 x Bullhouse Beers
Sweepstake 2nd Prize - 4 x Bullhouse Beers
Sweepstake 3rd Prize  - 2 x Bullhouse Beers

All beers will be shipped to each winner upon completion of the Instant Win Draw and Sweepstake Winners. This might only be available to UK residents, unless of course you are not a UK resident but wish to donate your prize to someone located in the UK.

On top of all this, we'll be planting a tree for each entry (so a total of 24 trees) via OneTreePlanted.
----------------------------

If any more money is kindly donated then we will split that again 50/50 between the two charities.

That's about it so if you're in just request in the comments below.

Cheers and good luck,
Bamboo & Bullhouse Brewery
:)

PS: There is zero chance of me "Arthur Fowlering" any cash as some of you on here actually have my address! Plus I doubt the sponsor would be too happy as well!

Thanks so far to all who have said they are in. Just want to make sure, any of those that are abroad (Flashheart & Aud so far) that you probably won't be eligible to receive the physical prizes directly but will be for the cash prize. Obviously you can donate/choose a nominated UK address that I can send to as an option.

As for payment, I'll either set up a Money Pool and/or will accept Faster Payment via your bank too. If the second option is chosen, just send me a DM.

We've got a quarter of the spaces filled so far, which is pretty decent. Hopefully get 'em all snapped up before Friday.

Welcome to new entrants

Crackity J
Wobbly B
&
Bobs Orange

We're just over a third pledged with 9 so far. Feel free to let anyone in your own networks know if they fancy winning some cash, beers and a pretty snazzy retro England shirt.

I've shared this in my own networks but they are mostly "pint nursing stingy norvverners" so it can be a tough gig but I'm sure we'll get there :D

Cheers Mr Orange, that's fine thanks. To anyone waiting for the Money Pool link. I will post later on or sometime tomorrow. Just waiting for a few more to jump on board and then we'll sort payments out.

Cheers,
Bamboo
:)

We've got 10 (pending an 11th). Near on halfway.

Be decent if a few more on here enter. Lots of "win, win, win" scenarios here. You'll be putting half of your donation to the Trust and half to Cancer Research. But also you'll have 2 chances to win via the Instant Win & Sweepstake. Also the Sweepstake has some consolation prizes too, so you haven't even got to be the best!

I'm trying to do it so that I don't have to enter as I'd prefer someone else to actually win and it avoids any potential animosity if I were to end up with France or someone likely to do pretty well!

On top of the prizes already listed above, I will also be doing random "beer giveaways" throughout the tournament so you might even win something just for predicting the correct score or the correct goalscorer...I reckon that's £10 well spent if I'm honest with you, especially if you're drawn a shit team...like England*  :)


*They'll go and win it now!

Well done.  I'm in also, if not too late.  Will DM you for bank details.

Would've done the same for you Sippo but Paypal, after years of previous use, now required me to send id online.  Sadly too much hassle.  Or maybe I feared being weeded out as a money launderer  ;)

Sippo was very flexible and allowed me to do Bank Transfer as I don't use Paypal.

If you don't ask, you don't get ;)

Hi all,

Welcome RedRag.

Cheers Mr Orange, I have received your payment fella.

Horlock, you can pay either by Faster Payment (Bank) or Money Pool (PayPal). If choosing the former then DM me for details. If the latter, I'll be setting up a Money Pool shortly.

For all: We have 12 entrants at present, so I'm just wondering who (this isn't a cert yet, just interested on uptake) might be keen on "doubling up" their donation to have a 2nd team? It's more because I'm worried about not get 24 individual entrants before drawing your teams on Friday. Let me know if your keen on that but obviously it's better if there is a full house :)

Money Pool link to be dropped later for those paying that way.

Cheers,
Bamboo

Kidding ... count me in (for doubling up too if needed) and I'll sort the beer thing out later if I win. Also, not a PayPal fan so can you DM me bank details, please?

Welcome WTRRA, I'll drop payments details in your DM's dreckly. Yeah, I appreciate that the tournament might well have even been completed before getting through the initial post   :Ride On Fatbury's Lovestick:

Thanks so far though to the 4 who have made themselves available to double team  :eek:

Berni
Wobbly
Crackity
&
WTTRA

You're on standby for that. We have 14 entrants including a couple of my non-TEF mates. it appears I am somewhat tolerable in the real world ;)

If I get to 20 by around 10pm tomorrow then, I'll add you four in for the extra places and then will collect your additional fee/donation.

Ok, I'm setting up the Money Pool for those who want to pay that way. I'll chuck it on here inside the next hour. Thanks to all so far who have pledged to take part. Cracking bunch of prizes and I genuinely am very grateful to our sponsors for being game.

Catch you in a jiffy!

Right for some reason PayPal wouldn't allow my account to set up a Money Pool so I have had to just create a PayPal Me link instead.

Anyone who is wanting to pay via PayPal can do so here:

https://paypal.me/BambooWrites

When sending just keep it as "Friends&Family" and in the note enter "EuroSweep" and your TEF Name (so I can ID who it is that has paid).

Cheers all,

Bamboo
:)


NB: Call to arms for anyone not signed up yet, it's only a tenner and there are some great prizes - and craft beer like Double Axe at 8% as well as some more regular IPA, NEIPA, Pales and Fruity ones if that's your thing too. There's also some nice Coffee based Stouts to tickle the taste buds. Bullhouse Brewery are (at the very least) one of Northern Ireland's top Breweries and just seem to keep on getting better. They recently were also featured in BrewDog n Friends launch magazine. They also run a series of Tap Rooms over there so if you are ever in Belfast for whatever reason, go and check them out :)

Right now though, you don't even have to do that. A £10 entry/donation could land you some of their beers (amongst some other stuff) shipped right to your door. You can relax, enjoy Euro 2020(1) and sup some finely crafted beer from Bullhouse Brewery. If you don't drink - give 'em to your mate, neighbour, dog, terrapin, gran, whatever :)

Nice one Donkey, and welcome aboard. Just had a quick look on https://bullhousebeer.co.uk and it looks like Will (the owner) has added a few more in their range, such as Dudelsack - A German Style 6% Smoked Marzen and the wonderfully named Priests Socks - A Black IPA 5.6% made with Strata and Idaho hops!

I'm led to believe that all of Bullhouse's cans are 440ml as well, so none of this 330ml stuff. I'm not sure about you lot but I can already taste the beer! Fabulous!

Cheers to:

RedRag
Batch
Sippo
&
Flashheart.

Payments all received. For some reason FH, yours only sent through £9.21 but I'm guessing this was due to cross border money transfer fees (pesky PayPal). Absolutely no problem though but if you win I'll be deducting 7.9% from your prize   ;) 100% only joking, it's fine.

Berni, yeah that ok. I will let you know, along with others if needed. We're getting closer as both

Fowey
&
AldbourneRed

are on the list, so welcome to you pair. Puts us at 17 entrants individually. I have a few on my end/network who haven't got back/read messages yet but as stated, I'll leave it until late tonight before deciding on adding in double upper. If we get to 20 entrants then I might activate doubling up!

Initial Sweepstake draw will take place on Friday @ 6pm (BST) and I may drop a zoom link for this too. We'll use "Sweepstake Generator" to draw the teams, as in all honesty it's one of the snazziest and free ones I've found. The Instant Win will then be done via a "Picker Wheel/Wheel of Fortune" AFTER the opening match at around 10pm. So you can all chill out a bit and watch the delights of Turkey v Italy.

Only a few more stragglers to get on the list, would be nice to get a full house (individually).

Will be back on later to add any more entrants/check progress and update.

Cheers,
Bamboo
:)

Sorry mate, missed this earlier. Pleasure is all mine but indeed massive ones to Sippo for kind of inadvertantly giving me a kick up the arse. Fully support the stuff at Mind and will be making a donation in due course.

What's the saying "double the fun and a bar of soap..." something like that  :Ride On Fatbury's Lovestick:

Anyway, yep should be a decent bit of fun and might help stem some of the semi final tears when England bow out to surprise tournament outsiders Turkey. «ok guzel indeed!

Cheeky fuckers.

Indeed. I don't know if they have an upper limit on fees but imagine they don't and you were sending a grand or two. £80 for not a lot. There's cheaper out there and faster too. Cheeky fuckers indeed.

Likewise but by bank transfer.

If you are tantalisingly close to the target I will add a double for my brother (even though he is a Spurs fan). He lives in London so may like a beer or two if lucky. His name is Denis for the draw if needed. It's his birthday tomorrow ... #brotherlylove

LAST ORDERS!

Ok, so we are still hinged on 17 individual entries. I'm giving it until 3pm for ABFs and then at 3pm I will add in any "double uppers".

On the double list I have:

Berniman
Crackity Jones
Wobbly Bob
Red Rag (I think)
&
WhereTheRealRedsAre

Please tell me if I'm wrong on this but if this is accurate and the above are still game then we will only need another 2 (poss 3) entrants. I will have one entry (if need be) but I really don't want to have to do so!

I will check back on a little later (probs about 2pm) to sweep up those final few, give an update and send in the boys for any of those late payments  ;D

Cheers,
Bamboo

We all have a brother named "Denis" ;) No that's awesome, thanks. Feeling the love there WTRRA. Good man, I will confirm that at 3pm (BST).

Aud, just checking...are you the "Rosey" one? :)

-----------------------

Also, WobblyBob. Very kind of you and your donation has been received.

Fowey, I have confirmation of yours too. Cheers :)

Ok, just giving anyone a final lunchtime nudge and I'll check back in a bit. Be great if the likes of Panda Paws, Costanza, Peter Venks, Tans, Jayo or similar got involved but it's purely optional fun :)

Just in case anyone was unsure and thinks that I'm pulling a fast one (I have had messages saying as much, albeit not on here) for some reason... well the beers are here and we have 18 entrants so far.

We have some kind souls who have offered to pay for two teams which provisionally takes us to 22 (possibly 23) entrants.

With that in mind...we're putting it out there that there are just TWO spaces remaining and you have just under 2hrs to claim a spot.

If you fancy winning:
A Retro England Shirt
£50 cash
A load of Beers from Bullhouse Brewing Company
&
Helping whack a load of trees in the ground!

As well as this you'll be helping to raise very worthy money for two great causes in Cancer Research UK & STFC Trust. Also I (along with my sisters) will even be sweating it out in September via a Marathon Hike. Yep, just to try and secure your donations; whilst I'm doing that, you can potentially kick back, relax with a nice cold beer, revel in the glory of your snazzy retro shirt and feel good about having planted some trees.

If that isn't the equivalent of a well deserved pat on the back and a tenner well spent then we don't know what is!

£10 entry/donation. Shout "I'm in" in the comments and we'll send you details to pay.

If you're feeling generous anyway and just want to donate then feel free to drop whatever amount to;

https://paypal.me/BambooWrites

Cheers,
Bamboo

Ok that puts us at 19 (including me unfortunately).

I want just one more of you and then I'll add in the "double uppers".

Only one more entrant needed to hit 20.

Cheers all so far, I know its a tough time to even just enter one charity led event/game so the thanks is even more appreciated.

What with Rich's Alan Mac Charity Match, Sippo's Sweep for Mind and mine on top (as well as no doubt some other endeavours I'm not even aware of) there has been quite a, bit of charitable action.

I think anyone who has donated to any stuff recently or even just passed on the message to others genuinely deserves one hell of pat on the back. Without donations, sponsors and suchlike, there would be zero funds. So from me, back to you lot it is a massive thank you :)

You are now added with an extra paid entry and can now pay entry/donation.

Sorry about that, just got delayed. Ok, so I have tried to create the sweepstake and combine it with a Zoom call (I tested this earlier and the site was ok) but the Sweepstake Generator site was rammed which was making it pretty slow but I have managed to do a screen record and I will now post the link for you guys to view.

If you want the "with Bamboo commentary" option, please press red now ;) Actually there is a commentary version if you wish to view/listen to it.

Berni, I've kind of received it but it says it is pending/on hold. They also appear have taken a fee (like with FH) of 88p, so it's showing as £19.12 - Money on Hold.

Bamboo is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.

Topic: Euro 2020(+1) Instant Win
Time: Jun 11, 2021 10:05 PM London

Join Zoom Meeting
https://us02web.zoom.us/j/85451987906?pwd=Z0p5c25nUFlUUHI5bnMwV1NsMmhEQT09

So here is the live zoom link for the Instant Win Draw at 10.05pm.

No pressure to show your face but it's just a few mins to spin the a wheel to find the winner of the retro England Shirt and 4 Bullhouse Beers :)

I will wait till about 10.15pm for people to join the room and you may be in a waiting room when you join initially. Likely will have everyone muted for the draw just incase there is a random Oxford fan of something.

Catch some of you in around 15mins

I'll record it for those who miss it/can't view.

Hey Berni, yep. It's still pending and taking 88p in fees. I will just deduct the 88p from the other one (as you suggest) and send you back

£19.12
-     88p
=
£18.24

I don't know what justifies those kind of fees in PayPal in all honesty. Think it's around 4.5% in this instance but they don't appear to be consistent. FH had a 7.9% fee deducted but of course that was at least due to cross transfer. This (yours) was GBP-GBP so baffled me. Unless it has something to do with being B2B (Business to Business) poss?

Anyway, if it all goes tuts up, I'll just pay the difference into the charity pots :)

I don't know why it is showing as pending..  My end shows paid 2 x £20, the same as always.  I haven't had this problem with any other payment..  And mine isn't a business account.

The business thing, there's an option on PayPal you need to change to 'family and friends' rather than 'paying for an item or service' to avoid fees.

Yeah there is usually the option to choose either or for the sender at payment (and a note if needed). This is usually set to F&F as the default option.

Hey ho mate, it's no problem. I had to go in to my desktop version and state that you'd paid for "virtual services" rather than a physical product. Maybe because I've received payments for framed prints via that PayPal, possible PayPal thinks that every single transaction done was for a physical product?! Still wouldn't explain the hold up.

Any way, it'll supposedly clear in a couple of days but honestly mate, it's no big deal...as long as you don't end up winning the thing and I get a backlash  :Ride On Fatbury's Lovestick:

I'll sort it :)
