    Checking on license requirement.
    May not be enough time between now and the event for license approval.

    Did anyone read Wisconsin Statutes Chapter 563, 'Bingo and Raffle Control'?

    63.02 Purpose. The legislature declares that:
    (1) All phases of the conduct of bingo and raffles, except
    bingo games using free cards and donated prizes for which no payment
    of consideration is made by participants, should be closely
    controlled by appropriate laws and rules which should be strictly
    and uniformly enforced throughout this state.
    (2) The conduct of bingo, raffles and all attendant activities,
    except bingo games using free cards and donated prizes for which
    no payment of consideration is made by participants, should be so
    regulated as to discourage commercialization of bingo and raffles
    in all forms and to ensure the maximum use of the profits of bingo
    exclusively for proper and legitimate expenditures.
    (3) It is a matter of statewide concern to foster and support
    proper and legitimate expenditures and to prevent commercialized
    gambling, participation by criminal and other undesirable
    elements and diversion of funds from usage for proper and legitimate
    expenses.

    Thanks Doug! I took the ad down as there will more than likely not be enough time between now and then to get the license approved and there are a lot of other factors that will take forever to work out.

    With this having a campaign involved we wouldn't want to do anything illegal even in the slightest way.

    Mike, feel free to remove this thread

    Did you read the statute? I did not and don't know that licensing is required.

    Yes I did and I talked to someone at the Department of Gaming.
    A license is required for "ALL" raffles, everywhere.

    A minimum of three weeks is required for approval of the license, no exceptions.

    Good call, thanks for the info
