I will raffle a 2 hour blacksmithing session with fire, steel and beer included.

Very cool!

How about a silent auction, instead of a raffle?

There's some very specific things being offered here, and not everybody is going to be interested in all of them. Otherwise the person hoping to win a blacksmithing session may wind up with 4 hours of biohacking advice they have no interest in, or vice versa.

You can of course do both: have a silent auction for the bigger, more specialized prizes, and a raffle for the smaller or more generally appealing prizes. So biohacking and blacksmiting could go in the silent auction, but computer advice, or a coupon for dinner for two at some restaurant could go into the raffle.

I have a couple small items I was planning to drop off at Sudo anyway:

- Bag of Guayaki loose leaf Mate (expired, but unopened)
- One of those pens that records whatever you're writing - forgot the brand name
- A cardboard medieval clock kit.

I'll also offer one hour of one-on-one mad science brainstorming...
