Traditional raffle

The traditional bookcrossing convention raffle will take place as usual.

We follow the American method as seen at the Oxford and Athens Conventions. Please write your name  on every ticket you purchase, plus the free ones you got by registration, break the strips of tickets up unto single tickets and post them into the box besides the prize(s) that you would most like to win. The raffle is drawn on Saturday afternoon at about 16:30. The Raffle will close at 16:00 to prepare.

The price of one ticket is NOK 5. The tickets will be sold in pairs, i.e. you can buy 2, 4, 6, 8 and so on. Prices:

  • 10 NOK – 2 tickets, 20 NOK – 4 tickets, 30 NOK – 6 tickets, 40 NOK – 8 tickets
  • 50 NOK – 12 tickets (2 tickets extra), 100 NOK – 24 tickets (4 tickets extra), 200 NOK – 48 tickets (8 tickets extra)
  • 5 euro – 10 tickets, 10 euro – 20 tickets, 20 euro – 40 tickets (it’s approx. the same discounted prices in euros as in NOK. Please note that we only accept euro bills, not euro coins)

If you would like to donate either a full raffle prize, or something smaller to be included in a raffle prize with other items, please let us know:

We thank you in advance for donating and for letting us know as to prepare in time.

Please remember to have some change with you to be able to buy some raffle tickets.
