$100 Contest. Are you in?

I'd had this idea and started it on the other thread...this isn't for discussion, just to find out if we have 20-25 people who would be willing to enter a $100 contest.

So far TabsJunky, Nightfiend, dv8rulz and GiS have said they'd do it.

if we can get about 20 more people, I wouldn't mind doing it again....but this time we won't start it up until we know we have enough people.

THIS THREAD IS FOR 'YES, I'M IN' POSTS ONLY.

For an "inspected but not setup" VWH you'd need 19-20 and some sucker to help run it... glen

Sorry i didn't read back further than 4 posts...and i had all that time waiting for the numbers to come up this afternoon!

i think more realistically it'll be 25 people @ $100 each.

We're up to 7 so far. better than 1/4 of the way there.

perhaps the 'entry fee' could be paid directly to Mr. Harris?

Anyway, nothing will happen until we have 25 interested parties.
If you're interested, post here, otherwise, post someplace else. (i heard myspace.com is good)

Re: $100 Contest. Are you in?

I'd be in forsure, as already stated.

But it'd have to be in July, cuz I'm getting another job.

Screw McDonalds, they fired me cuz I don't clean washrooms. I'm not cleaning public washrooms for minimum wage, **** that.

You would have thought so wouldn't you! Amazing how selfish these execs can be!

Back OT, I'd give the contest consideration.

Re: $100 Contest. Are you in?

i could be tempted - if only because it's possible the prize will go to someone without a guitar collection.

i could also be tempted to help collecting funds again if i get another catchy title on my signature!

Re: $100 Contest. Are you in?

For a new guitar, I would rather wait until the end of the year (Novemberish) and have another $30 "contest".

The only way I'd be in for a $100 "contest" would be if it was for something like a LNG, DSY, SK, GMC, or PMC. --Jason

Yes I'm In..

I'd do it once.

Why not just a cash prize or gift certificate from one of the sponsors? Let the winner decide what gear he wants to buy? That opens the winner to a bunch of possibilities, from buying a new RG20062 or a "used" Jem777SK. Just an idea that might attract the other 17 people to get this kicked off.


Bottom line is I'd enter the contest at $100 - yes, count me in.

I'd also be willing to be treasurer, but only of course if I can be a participant as well.

Would it come from Rich? If so, I'd consider it. If not, nope.
