I'd be willing to sponsor one or two prizes from My NorthTrek line.

My sugestion is if there are enough people willing to donate prizes, why not just do one for everyone who participates in the group build, and finish's so,ething on time? That way there are no losers. I see a few people willing to donate a thing or two. And if 12 prizes are willing to be donated and there are 12 participants who finish something. Then everyone wins :) and everyone can do more then one entry. But it is just one prize per participating member.

Its more a thank you for participating then anything. Just a thought.

Ok,

So members don't want a full blown contest, so let's rule that out.

I'd also like to thanks each member who is willing to donate something, that's very generous and that's what makes this community great !

The problem with prizes is how to decide who gets what without having some sort of judges or voting process...

Even if we get enough prizes for each participant, what do we do if two members want the same prize ?

The only solution I see, is to have a random draw and let fate decide who gets what. Only members who finish their build before September 8th can enter the draw, that way people have an incentive for finishing their project. Only one prize per member regardless of how many entries were completed.
This only works if we get enough prizes for each member who completes his build.

So, no votes, no contest, but still prizes for members who make the effort to complete their project.

What you guys think ?

Yeah, that sounds fair.

Ok, let's do the draw method then.

Members who are willing to donate something, please send me a pm with info on the kit you're donating so I can compile a list.

Thanks in advance to everyone who donate something.

I'll publish some guidelines over the week-end so everyone is on the same page for the group build... ;)

So far, we only have 3 people (including myself) who have agreed to donate something.

I've just shot a pm to everyone who mentioned they might be willing to donate a kit, so hopefully we can get that number up.

I've counted 11 members who wants to join the GB, so considering that not everyone will be completing their entries, I'd like to have 7 or 8 kits donated, so everyone can have one...

So, if you want to donate something, please contact me by pm, any donation will be greatly appreciated !

I'll publish a list of the prizes when there is a bit more on it...
