I personally do not like shares. You have no way of knowing who buys what and how much you will receive back in dividends.

But this:
200 teams purchases 500 raffle tickets each for 2 people to go to El Salto for 4 days of fishing.

- This is the only way they get to fish in the circuit.
- It cost them $2500 up front to fish.
- They sell each ticket for $5 each and get there money back.
- Any teams that do not sell can put their tickets in the drawing and have a great chance to win the trip.
- That is $500k that you will have to put on your tournaments for the year.

As you do not have a 200 team roster; you will have to start out smaller and build to 200 teams. It want take long before you will have to have a cut off limit of teams.

All this go fund me and all that is basically the same as participation trophies. Granted there are some good charity organizations and people that actually need the help but some of that [censored] is ridiculous. If you can't fish good enough to go pro on your own why in the world do you think other people should fund you? Go get a job, a real job

If you've read some of the OP's threads since he joined, you'll find that he is often a little "outside the box" with his ideas and theories. If I remember correctly, he is pretty new to this and has made no claims of being the next big thing. Sometimes his ideas are silly and without merit, sometimes his stuff is thought provoking.
I don't know him but I don't think he is looking for a handout, just throwing stuff out there to see if it sticks or slides down the wall. In this case, I think it's sliding down......

It was just a generalization. I didn't take it as he's the one asking for money. Maybe he is or he's just jerking the chain. I did hear of a guy doing this exact thing a few days ago and thought it might be related. And by all means, I don't take it to seriously, although I see how it looks like I did.

I just don't understand why they don't make the lottery easier to win. Then we would all have a lot of money to do the things we want to do.
