I’m working with my fellow Rotarians at Club 24 on a fundraising event.
Club 24 is over 100 Years Old — yet we don’t have an annual fundraiser that we can call our signature event. So we’ve been brainstorming. As part of that process, I thought I’d jot down the general list of some of the ideas we’ve come up with so far, to create a bit of an Idea Goose to help us along.
My first thought was to start with a “Wheel Of Fortune” type of pattern, like the very cool one from Andrew Brampton’s blog. But thinking about the multiple variables involved, I decided that starting out with a good old slot machine approach made most sense. After poking around for a quick foundation upon which to build, I found an experiment by Matthew Lein, a copy of which I forked from github, to be the easiest to morph into the Idea Goose.
I’d have posted the code for the Goose below on github, were it not for the fact that it’s more of a major paring down of Matthew’s awesome work than it is a legitimate extension. It’s easy enough to download the sources — for those who are interested, click here to open the url referenced from the wordpress iframe widget displayed below — everything you need is there with very little obfuscation.
I hope my fellow Rotarians from Club 24 find the Idea Goose fun and useful. Enjoy!
