    Re: Grinnell or Bust

    More progress. I have veneer on the front's, tops, and bottoms of 3 of 4 boxes, bracing is in and the cherry hardwood trim is close to where I want it so I can start the sides. The big boxes were wrapped with a 74" long piece of veneer made from two pieces taped together and ironed on. Next time I wrap something in veneer I'm going to leave a little more overhang on the edges. 10 3/8" wide veneer doesn't leave much room for error on a 10" wide panel.

      For the record, Bryan and I are both OK with removing ourselves from the door prize pool. We both agreed to that term quite a while ago - before any of the sponsors were even on-board.

      So, hoard away - everyone gets a shot!

      See you in a few weeks!

        What?:eek:

        Why?

        If everyone's name is in a hat, or box, or barrel, how can there be any possibility of impropriety? I say you both should absolutely be in the drawing(s), you've both worked way too hard to not enjoy some of the perks.

            I agree as well. If people that have not even entered a speaker can win, you two sure as hell can too.

              I'd like to see you guys be in the running. I know it would feel weird pulling you own name from the hat, but maybe someone can figure out how to do this.

                  I think you both deserve to be in the drawing as well. We can have an impartial participant drawing names to eliminate any uncomfortable feeling you may be experiencing. This event doesn't happen this year without your efforts and you deserve to be in the raffle, just like the rest of us!

                    I agree that Bryan and Johnny should also be eligible to win door prizes. If there were to be any restrictions on who shouldn't be eligible, I would think it would be non-entrants, like at PE's MWAF. However, I'm not suggesting this at all, so please no flames (I want my wife to win something good for me! :D.)

                      I never take myself out of the running either!

                      I usually allow family to also enter- if there is enough present on the table to make that fair.

                        I'm all for the organizers being eligible for door prize. That way they'll be encouraged to sign up more sponsors. ;-) I'll take this back if they get door prizes and I don't. :D:D:D

                              Ron, is this the UE project?

                              And thanks guys for all the comments regarding the door prize pool. Way to hijack Ron's thread too. Hehehehe.
