> Folks, we have put together an online benefit raffle in behalf of
> Eric Kler. As you know, Eric has given freely
of
> his time and labor to many website's benefit, and has been a contributor
to other RC websites for years. You may remember his nickname as Buckaroo from RCO or Onepoint from another.
Many of you may have visited FUBAR HILL and read Eric's love for the Hog Bipe and several humorous stories.
Those of you who have become acquainted with
him know that you couldn't have a better friend.
Recently, Eric suffered a very severe injury from accident with a farm machine on his ranch in Wyoming.
Truth is Eric has lost an appendage and will be undergoing several weeks of physical therapy and will not be able to work. Also, FWIW, their is no medical insurance.

Since he's laid up right now, we figured

> Here's the deal:

> We've rounded up five donated prizes to raffle, with all proceeds going to

> 3. Enya .29 engine and a twin engine funfly kit called the "Risky Frisky" from our friends down under.
>
> 4. Blowfly kit, with two 5 meter rolls of Ozcover medium.

> 5. Apex charger/cycler

> We have purchased a block of one thousand raffle tickets. We will sell
them

I had not heard about Eric. My check will be in the mail this evening.
