And just to be clear. Properly registered simply means having your profile complete? with first and last name?

Tim is right, we often have to redraw winners names because the initial winner didn't register with their real first and last names. Of course we know that our email confirmation doesn't prove a real name was used and everyone knows that we don't have a means of confirming identities for over 17,000 people.

In the future we hope to be able to convince more companies to donate larger more expensive prizes. I have contacted several companies and asked for a Laser Engraver and a CNC Router to be donated, I haven't landed any yet but I will continue to try. Should we be fortunate enough to attract such an expensive prize you can bet that the winner will be validated before we ship.

Wouldn't it be a shame for your name to be drawn for a $20,000.00 laser engraver and you have to forfeit the prize because you didn't register properly.

When the first big prize comes our way we will also lock down the drawing the day the drawing is announced. Anyone who registers after the announcement is made will not be elligible to win. This would prevent 100,000 people from registering here just to have a chance at the big prize. You can see that I have given this some thought :)

Anyone who would like to change their username here at The Creek should send me a Private Message and request the change. All of your posts wil remain unchanged other than your user ID.

Whoever wins will really like the apron. They are very light with plenty of room around the neck and underarms. The cowhide and horsehide both have the same feel, both soft and very pliable. CW will make these with just about any type of custom modifications you prefer as far as pockets, knit necklines, etc.

I already have one of CW's cowhide turning aprons and will be ordering a cowhide carpenters apron shortly, custom made to my specs :)

I received the apron but haven't had a chance to use it yet, very nice, and light, fits nice and comfortable. Many thanks to McClellan Leather Craft for donating the apron also to Keith for the sawmill creek patch.
Much Appreciated
