Let's build an amp!! Rafle amp update

This afternoon, UPS delivered on my doorstep the beautiful cherry case constructed by Ben Sykora that he generously donated to support my amp raffle to benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.  Also arriving in the package was the awesome custom 12-gauge aluminum chassis donated by Brian Schmittling of DirtyDawg Amps, which is definitely the hobbyist's go-to place for guitar chassis.  So now all the boards are constructed, all the components are in-hand and we are now ready to enter the final assembly and wiring phase.  It won't be long now!

That said, I'm leaving for the race in San Diego this Friday, so it's time to admit that things have fallen a little bit behind schedule.  The original plan was to hold the amplifier raffle immediately following the race.  However, as it's clear now that the amp just won't be ready by then, I've decided to delay the amplifier raffle until Sunday, 24 June.  That's three weeks after the day of the race, which will give me time to fully complete the amplifier prior to the drawing.  I've also settled on a method to transparently and independently conduct the raffle. I will be using the services of the RandomPicker website.

Oh, and one final thing!  The amplifier has a name, courtesy of John Hannon over at AX84... henceforth it shall be known as the Wombat Amps "Quest"!
