    We might get upwards of 5 of 10 prizes to give away. If you only post a little bit then you have very few chances to win. Each post that you make counts as one more entry into the contest though!

    Well, these will most likely all be prizes that are given away, so you'll get the prize and either use it, give it away, sell it, put it on your garage shelf, whatever. :)

    just being nosey here, but where do the prizes come from? donations, money raised by sellin GMTC swag? it would be nice to get some venders on here willing to pitch in (it is great advertising after all) and i think a lot of the members on here would be willing to go in on some bulk buys or even get a a slight discount for being a member.

    read back, you'll see who's going to be donating the prizes. Everything will come from vendors and they will ship directly to the prize winner. Contest hasn't started yet, I need to get more vendors lined up.

    Is there a chance to select one prize that we can vote for a member to win? Obviously we couldn't nominate ourselves. :)

    The contest has not started yet, in fact I'm still working on getting all of the prizes together.

    Read the first post for the rules. It will be very simple, you just post messages on the site. That's it. Once the contest begins, each post that you make counts as one entry into the contest. If there are 50,000 posts total made, and you have 5 post, then you have a 1/10,000 shot of winning each prize. If you buckle down and make 500 posts, then you have a 1/50 chance of winning each prize. If you go wild and do something like 1,000 posts, then you have something like a 1/25 chance of winning each prize.

    My goal is to get at least 5 good prizes donated, and maybe some smaller ones. Then we're off to the races.
