    Hi all,

    just wanted to make sure you all were aware of our Show Us Your Woodpile contest. Grand prize is a new wood boiler! This should be right up your alley! See the website for details www.woodboilers.com .

    looking forward to seeing your submissions,

    Took a gander at the rules and really couldn't find out on what basis the winner is to be decided. Can you point me to this? "odds of winning depends on number of submissions" seems to suggest a drawing of some sort - is this simply a drawing of names or is there some sort of selection process? What is being looked for here?

    Well, if it is truly a contest I think Highbeam will win it hands down!

    Hi Slow1,

    there are no specific requirements or guidelines for what we are looking for - in other words, a winner might be chosen because the pile is so big, or because the pile is stacked in a creative way, or?? I am sure the nine winners will be a mix of all of that and more. There is not a drawing, we will choose the winners. Be creative, show us what you've got!

    One thing I would suggest is submit a good quality photo. The nine winners' (grand prize plus 8 runners up) photos will be used to create a poster and we will, of course, want good photos for that. At this point the poster has not been designed, but we are thinking of a "Doorways of Dublin" kind of thing.

    thanks for your interest,

    Chris

    rock on myzamboni

    FREE FIREWOOD ... some rotted pieces....hehehe...you get there and you spend a half hour trying to justify your existance while picking 4 so-so pieces out of the 1/2 cord.

    I deal with many "free things".
    It's hit or miss and it comes with the business.
    But heads up as myzamboni mentioned when someone offers you FREE CAT ACCESSORIES! while being thankful for other offerings put in your path.

    Upward of 50 cords sitting split and stacked in Eric Johnson's back yard. If that won't win it then it ain't a contest worth entering.

    Otherwise it is just harvesting email addresses.

    I was just thinking about Eric and wondering what happened to him. He's become the silent moderator.

    Now all you have to do is superimpose your woodpile in the back and you've got the contest sewn up! ;) :)

    Looks like a great place for a wood pile, good drainage, sun and wind. If you set your splitter where she is standing, you would have a great view and could toss the splits down on the pile.

    My vote is for Crash (or his wife anyway), she'll produce plenty of wood.
