***Official Big Giveaway Thread***~!!Even More Winners!!~
« on: March 15, 2013, 08:48:20 PM »
Well, you folks have waited long enough! :D

The official B&B giveaway is finally here!

Originally, we intended to do a giveaway every time we doubled the forum membership, but it soon became apparent that our rapid growth was outpacing our ability to organize this in time. (Which is a good thing.)

We also celebrated our one year anniversary as well, and that came and went. so this giveaway is a celebration of more than just one milestone. And it is a way for B&B as a community to "thank itself". The great prizes, many of which are hand made, are donated by your fellow B&B members, vendors, mods, staff, and administrators.

We have a thread here:

http://bladesandbushcraft.com/index.php/topic,4071.0.html

...discussing the participants and prizes.

The way this will work, is any B&B member (18 years or older) with 15 posts or more should post "In" in this thread. After we have let it run for a week or so to allow members a chance to see it and post in the thread, we will start giving away prizes. Each person that has supplied a prize, will use the random method of their choice to select a winner. It might be a random number generator, names in a hat, or throwing axes at names on a stump. :D

Once a winner is chosen, they will be contacted by PM by the person shipping the prize, and they will have one week to respond before their prize is forfeit and we pick another number. Once a winner is identified for a prize, they will not be eligible to win again in this giveaway. There are multiple prizes, so everyone who enters will have multiple chances to win something. By entering this giveaway, you certify that you are 18 years or older and may legally receive the prizes being offered.

(Mods, vendors, anyone giving away a prize in this giveaway, please see the thread in the vendor forum so that we can get the order worked out. Upthecreek will be going first.)


So lets hear a big "thanks!" to all of the generous folks who are contributing to the prizes for this giveaway, and to the members of B&B for helping to make this such a great place to hang out.! :thumbsup:
