25K Post Contest

Postby The Deacon » Sun Jan 05, 2020 11:34 am

Figured I'd mark hitting 25K posts with a little contest. Rules are fairly simple:

  • Contest is open to anyone who has made at least one post before today.
  • Prize is a 2010 KnifeWorks Exclusive M4 Titanium/G10 RIL Military.
  • To enter, make a post in this thread with a three digit number between 000 and 999.
  • One entry per member.
  • Contest will be open until 11:00 am Eastern Standard Time on January 13, 2020.
  • Winning number will be that day's winning number in the South Carolina Education Lottery Pick 3 "DAY" drawing (held at 12:59pm EST).
  • In the event more than one person has the winning number, the person who posted that number first wins.
  • In the event nobody picks that number, the winning entry will be the entry closest to it, under or over.
  • In the event of numbers equally close under and over, the closest under the lottery winning number will win.
I am willing to ship the prize anywhere in the world, but cannot guarantee delivery or cover customs fees imposed by your government.

Congrats Paul!
25 K posts is really unbelievable... and the best thing is, many of them are about your favorite model (Stretch), which is probably also mine, but you know about 25 k times more than me about it... ;)

And many thanks for doing the contest!

Number: 810

Thanks for the generous opportunity Paul! Though I feel it is the rest of us who should be giving you the prize. Thank you for your valuable insight and contributions here over the past. I look forward to many years more. :)

My number will be 223.

Wow, Nice prize Paul. I had to sell mine years ago to pay vet bills and have often wished I had another. They aren't really easy to get especially in affordable condition.

Thanks for the chance. Normally I don't enter these but this is different.

Congrats Paul! It was a lot of typing work to reach the 25000 ... and also a lot of thinking.

Congratulations on the milestone Paul. Didn't you older members have your post count reset in 2004?

I think I'll go with 280.
