gobbo has kindly volunteered to help with paypal if you want your $ riding live on the wheel, PM him for details.



Looks like we still have one slot open, #12. That slot will go to the first person from the following list to post a qualifying charity in this thread:

Bigdaddydvo
Gin 'n Tonic
Alobar (assuming he gets out of jail in time)
ChaseNutley26
ec_outlaw
MeLoveYouLongTime
Doozie350
REDeYeS88
Yeti


Added MeLoveYouLongTime, Doozie350, and REDeYeS88 due to their pledges. Added Yeti because dude works hard behind the scenes to keep the OOT machine running.

If one of the above hasn't posted a qualifying charity by 18:00 Vegas time on Monday, the first person to post a qualifying charity after that time locks it up for that charity.

Re: Charity rOOTlette 2017: July 10, 7pm Vegas time @ Bellagio

If you have sent money to gobbo, please verify that you also included your 2p2 username when sending him the money, so we can make sure we know what was received from who.

The reason for this is because if someone pledges but doesn't send, and someone else pledged the same amount and shipped without including their username, we won't know which person it came from and thus won't know which number(s) to put it on.

Re: Charity rOOTlette 2017: July 10, 7pm Vegas time @ Bellagio

This is what the pledges look like at the moment, sorted a bit:

chopstick ($5/number)
ec_outlaw ($3/number)
golddog ($1/number)
goofball ($1/number or $37 to winner)
Yakmelk ($3/number, $15 on #15)
amead ($1/number & $100 to winner)
marknfw ($2/odd numbers & $64 to winner)
DoctorZangief ($1/number & $15 on #7)

El Diablo ($20 on #22 & $10 each on 3 dif #s TBD)
MeLoveYouLongTime ($5 each on #s 23, 14, 10, 9, 32)
ninetynine99 ($10 each on #s 0, 9, 19, 29, 36)
Doozie350 ($unknown amount on 17, 19, 23 & $20 to winner)
REDeYeS88 ($20 each on 2, 12, 15, 22, 32)

GMLAW ($5 on #34)
de captain ($26 on #6)
Bighurt52235 ($nickel on #35)
Howard Treesong ($50 on #17 for gobbo)
offTopic ($20 on #28)
Malucci ($somecash on #26)
Very Josie ($10 on #21, $50 direct to NV Partnership for Homeless Youth)

pokeraz ($37 to winner)
jmakin ($20 to winner)
amoeba ($50 to winner)
SGT RJ ($25 to winner)
Rexx14 ($20 to winner)
zikzak ($37 to winner)
LFS ($20 to winner)


Considering the following:
$15/even numbers - $525
$17/odd numbers - $595
$393 direct to winner

This means the winning charity is guaranteed to win a minimum of at least $918 right now. Would be pretty sweet to get that up to $1000!

Thanks for the reminder!

21 different numbers have individual bets riding on them, so I'll up that to 24 by picking more that don't:

#1 Weed for Good
#16 Golden Retriever Rescue of the Rockies

and

#12 (whatever it ends up being)


So now your pledge line looks like:

El Diablo ($20 on #22 & $10 each on 1, 12, 16)

Re: Charity rOOTlette 2017: July 10, 7pm Vegas time @ Bellagio

Some people have chosen to make their own donations directly. Some have chosen to ship money to gobbo and have their physical money ride on the wheel at Bellagio. Here's the breakdown that I have as of right now:


Confirmed received by gobbo / physically there:

chopstick ($5/number)
goofball ($1/number)
golddog ($1/number)
Yakmelk ($3/number, $15 on 15)
amead ($1/number & $100 to winner)
marknfw ($2/odd numbers & $64 to winner)
DoctorZangief ($1/number & $15 on 7)
El Diablo ($20 on 22 & $10 each on 1, 12, 16)
MeLoveYouLongTime ($5 each on 23, 14, 10, 9, 32)
ninetynine99 ($10 each on 0, 9, 19, 29, 36)
Doozie350 ($5 each on 17, 19, 23)
GMLAW ($5 on 34)
de captain ($26 on 6, $5 on 17)
Bighurt52235 ($5 on 35)
Howard Treesong ($50 on 17)
offTopic ($20 on 28)
Malucci ($6 on 26)
Very Josie ($10 on 21, $50 direct to NV Partnership for Homeless Youth)
gobbo ($20 on 17)
REDeYeS88 ($20 each on 2, 12, 15, 22, 32)
pokeraz ($37 to winner)
amoeba ($50 to winner)
SGT RJ ($25 to winner)


Donating directly on their own or have not yet sent to gobbo:

ec_outlaw ($3/number)
jmakin ($20 to winner)
Rexx14 ($20 to winner)
zikzak ($37 to winner)
LFS ($20 to winner)
Doozie350 ($20 to winner)



If you think you sent money to gobbo and your name does not show up in the first block of names, or the amount looks incorrect, please let gobbo & I know ASAP so we can resolve that. So far everything looks pretty good.



Based on the above and absent and subsequent shipping or people showing up in person to splash the pot, this is currently what the table at the Bellagio will look like for tomorrow's spin:

Despite her mistakes, I think her temp ban for a containment violation in making a charitable contribution was a bit harsh and certainly not in keeping with the spirit of a charitable fundraiser. If she sent the money to 'gobo', I think she should be afforded the opportunity to post itt.
