Maybe. Don’t know where r2r is registered but there are state dependent rules around how you conduct raffles. Quick search suggested Ohio where I believe it’s illegal to conduct a raffle unless you’re a non profit. You pay more to increase your chance of winning a prize. I’m sure whoever owns this place can run this by their lawyers.

I’d still like some transparency. How much is going in and how much is going out in prizes. That would help people decide if it’s worthwhile.
U r way over thinking this its too help reef2reef keep up and running for those needing help and just simply for the fun of it.

I'm interested in supporting all things reefing but I'm curious where the proceeds go as well. Do they go to the owner of the company or some organization to help the reefs?

Bro this is a reefing forum, I think your taking things a bit to serious for what ever reason. Your not buying In just for a raffle, that’s just added bonus. Your getting merch and member perks. When people do purchase they are more or less supporting this free site they love and surf daily. Every Facebook group does raffles legal or not doesn’t matter. My local fair comes to town once a year and raffles lemon cakes lol

Well I would say the owner of the site should get the money minus whatever he/she spent on the give away stuff and cost of making merch etc. so in short it looks like a good bit of companies benifit from sales and exposure.

The money I have saved vs. the "trial and error" method has repaid the expense of this in orders of magnitude I can not begin to calculate. If my meager contribution helps to maintain this site and allow us all to continue to help out other reefers, then count me in whole heartedly!!

I am pleased to announce the 8th Annual R2R Partner Membership Drive is now OPEN for a LIMITED time!

What is a R2R Partner Member?

R2R has many ways that people can support the community forum from being active, welcoming, buying from sponsors as well as financially and many other ways. Once a year we open up a special membership category we call the Partner Membership which allows the members a chance to invest into the forum and in return receive some special recognition, member perks, R2R swag and the chance at some AMAZING prizes (OVER $25,000)!

Your support also enables R2R to grow in various ways by giving us more capital to invest back into the forum for various projects, upgrades, site development and much more. Please Note: All members world wide are eligible for this partner membership and eligible to win partnership raffle prizes. All members outside the lower 48 states will have to pay actual shipping for R2R gear and/or prizes if picked as a winner. If you are out of the United States we will contact you to pay shipping!

What does it cost to become a Partner Member?
This year, like last, we are going to offer two levels of partner memberships. There will be a Partner Membership that costs $100 + ship and an UPGRADED Partner PLUS Membership that costs $200 + ship. The biggest difference in the two levels of partnership is the amount of prize tickets you receive and extra R2R Swag!

What do Partner Members get in return for their support?
Each partner member will be able to enjoy some cool Reef2Reef Gear, Partner Member Perks for the year and to top it off you will also be given entry chances to WIN reef gear and gift certificates totaling over $25,000! THE MOST EVER! Once again, this year you get to CHOOSE where you want your prize chances to go and we will have individual winners for each prize. You can win more than one prize depending on where you use your tickets and the luck of the draw! It's your choice!

When, where and how will the Partner Member drawing take place?
The drawing will take place after the drive ends (sometime in November) and will be recorded and posted via video within the Reef2Reef Private Partner Forum in which all partner members will have access to. When you sign up to become a partner member you will choose where you want your prize tickets to go. We will email you your ticket numbers and place them in the prize box of your choosing just like you do at your local frag swaps or reef trade shows. Then we will pull the tickets from each box and record the results via video. We will contact all winners once the drawing is complete.

What are the prizes Partner Members can win?

You will have the opportunity to use your prize tickets where you feel would best suit what you want to try and win as well as your tank needs. You may also purchase additional tickets as well. There is over $25,000 in prizes to give away! Check out this line up in no particular order:


How many prize tickets do Partner Members get and can we buy more?
Each Partner Member will be given 10 tickets (30 for Partner Plus) with your membership and will be given the option to purchase more if you choose to do so. AGAIN FOR THIS YEAR: You will tell us where you want your tickets to go for what prize(s) you want to try and win just like you do at a frag swap or aquarium show. We will email you your ticket numbers sometime before the LIVE drawing. You can purchase extra tickets here.

What R2R swag can Partner Members expect this year?
As usual we wanted to give you something nice and something that you could use more often than not. We heard some of your requests and we put together a few items we hope you will enjoy. Reef Gear will start shipping at the close of the drive.

The following is included in your Partnership Standard:
  • 10 Prize Raffle Tickets (you choose what prizes you want to try and win)
  • A Reef2Reef Logo Super Soft T-Shirt
  • R2R Mascot Hat (your choice of Embroidered Curve Bill Adjustable or Flat Bill Snapback)
  • R2R Mascot Tank Sticker (4+")
  • R2R Mascot Key Chain
  • R2R Mascot Air Freshener
  • Reef2Reef Partner Member Account Upgrade
  • Reef2Reef Partner Member Account Badge

Included in the your R2R Partner Membership with Partner PLUS+ Upgrade are the following:
  • 30 Prize Raffle Tickets (you choose what prizes you want to try and win)
  • R2R Logo Branded 20oz Polar Travel Tumbler
  • R2R Logo Branded Bamboo Coaster Set (4 set)

  • R2R Mascot Tank Sticker (4+")

What are the extra perks for becoming a Partner Member?

Partner2022final.png

  • Access to the Private Partner Only Forum
  • Spiffy Partner Member Badge (see mine)
  • NEW Extra Classified Perks (see here)
  • Time limit on editing own posts: Unlimited
  • Maximum large avatar file size (bytes): Unlimited
  • Signature: Can now have up to 3 links in signature
  • Custom Thread Covers
  • Custom Profile Covers
  • Custom Username Color
  • New partners will have their account upgraded once we process your upgrade

When will your account be upgraded to Partner Member?
Once you have signed up to be a Partner member and we process the order on our end we will approve your account to be upgraded. Due to the amount of members we must process sometimes this upgrade can take several days. That being said we try to update everyone each day unless you upgrade on the weekend.

When does our R2R Partner Swag ship to us?
All partner member swag and items will ship at the end of the Partner Drive sometime in November. Some orders may be able to ship sooner but based on the logistics of how we have to order bulk swag we can't set a hard date. That being said we can tell you that we will for sure start shipping at the end of the drive.

Please note: Only enter an address that will still be a good address for you in November.
Please note: We will only be accepting partner members for a limited time so join today.

Welcome to the reef2reef family I've never seen anything about partner member discounts before but I could be wrong @revhtree will need to answer this one for an exact answer.
