I've just recently found this great site. I'ts already getting to be a habit with me. Thanks to the "Keepers" of the castle.:)

Just wonder how drawings are done. Do you put all name on the wall and throw a dart?:D If so then I guess that means the winner is "stuck" with the prize.:rolleyes:

Nice Jack.. I've always wondered if those things will keep the knives from lifting as the bolts are tightned.

Jack Norfleet

The magnets are pretty strong, but I don't know if it will stop all movement when the knives are tightened.

This happened last time with Mark Rios as well. I have to admit, I hadn't looked at the thread again after the first name was pulled. I'd bet the ones that haven't accepted aren't frequent visitors, or are otherwise distracted from the Creek at this time. Heck, this just builds more excitement anyway! More drooling for the same admission price!!:D Jim.

I have a DeWalt ROS waiting to give away and something real special right behind it...lets get this one done :)

Brian Hale
09-20-2006, 4:21 PM
Ok, i suggest that if the first name drawn doesn't respond in 1 week, we draw 2 new names and the first to respond wins. Then 3 names.........

Brian :)

Keith Outten
09-20-2006, 7:45 PM
From the next drawing on we will drop the response time to 48 hours. Allowing one week makes for a very long time to wait for someone to respond and we could draw several names in a week if we used the 48 hour rule. Those who frequent The Creek regularly will have an advantage but thats not a bad thing :)

From the next drawing on we will drop the response time to 48 hours.

Should someone edit/change the title (date) on the thread then? So everyone knows that something is still available?

Jack Norfleet
09-22-2006, 11:19 AM
I think we are overdue for the redraw.

Jackie Outten
09-22-2006, 11:47 AM

I will have Keith draw another name tonight.


Brian Hale
09-22-2006, 3:56 PM
Just make sure you spell the name correctly...
