Default What do you all think about having ourselves an acorn-pine-cone related photo contest?

I like those... [ My not-so-secret project out front ]

Players all pitch in $5.00 or so and the winner gets however many chimes we're able to purchase via entry fees collected.
A nice stimulating quest to enjoy the outdoors this Winter.

If so....We'd need a non player-volunteer willing to step in and serve as judge.

HA HA HA HA HA..... too funny. I'm definitely for an acorn and pine cone contest. You'll have to let me know when you start YOUR contest!!! I'll pitch in $5 and another $5 for anyone who forgets. Let me know and I'll toss an envelope in your box with $10 in it.

BTW.... that windchime comes in a single acorn too that's like half the price of the other 1.

Willo....Biiig....Sage....Anyone else game for tossing $5.00 in for a chance at one or however many pine cones chimes we can gather moola for?

I think we need to find out many players there might be previous so we can get them ordered before they are no longer available........
Is there a non player in the crowd willing to volunteer to be judge?

ok I'll pitch in $5.
I still don't have a camera and have no idea which one to buy so I'll need suggestions quickly.

Well that's three so far (myself included) If someone steps up to be judge....It takes at least 4-5 players to qualify for one small chime or 5-6 for one large one....10 for a try at that cool triple set up at Amazon.com: pine cone chime

If you want me to judge instead that's fine since I don't have a decent camera.

I'll judge.

Let's fire up this contest after Will-o-wisp has a camera.

Nooooo Thanks for offering, but what we need for such a contest to take place is........
MORE players to cover at least "one" of the chimes to begin.
