"Um, he's sick. My best friends sisters boyfriends brothers girlfriend heard from this guy who knows this kid who's going with the girl who saw Mark pass out (dillo dust) at the (gun range near) 31 Flavors last night. Guess it's pretty serious." (ML turned up OK this morning –– maybe he passed out when they told him they couldn't make Dillo Dust the 32nd flavor –– even though they should!)
... the clock struck midnight in Wisconsin and the flaming cheese curd torches were lit!
In the spirit of Mark's extreme generosity and to "help a brother out" from the torches and pitchforks ... here is the UNOFFICIAL Hell Froze Over September Contest.
Keep in mind ML doesn't HAVE to post anything on the first day of the month! A perfectly acceptable reason for not starting his contest yesterday is "because", though I suspect we'll get a better story.
The rules are similar and include:
You must be a team member.
The numbers will be 1-2000.
Since I don't have a fancy report for the thread, you can add comments but NO EDITING YOUR POST.
One number post/entry per team member.
Contest will run until the minute the OFFICIAL September 2010 contest begins ends or I say so.
If you love LaRue Tactical goodness, be sure to show/tell/share their products with your friends.
Other rules I might think of later as necessary.
What do you win? Well, unfortunately NOT what is in the pictures above (unless anyone wants to jump in here with some extras)!
The Prize Package Includes (minimum):
One (1) New-In-Wrapper PMAG (Black)
One (1) New-In-Package LaRue Beverage Entry Tool (Dillo)
One (1) <Gomer Pyle> Surprise, Surprise, Surprise Item...
Who knows...maybe some other things too. Maybe not.
ETA: I see ML's generosity has rubbed off around here. This just in!
One (1) New-In-Wrapper Bottle Dillo Dust
Two (2) New-In-Wrapper Center Ind. 30 rd Mags
One (1) New-In-Wrapper Eagle Ind TAS-3 Sling, with DD rail mounted sling swivel

We now have a fancy REPORT
for the thread. THANKS mnd
We have a winner and winner takes all!
I had to call in the big guns for random number selection. This 4 year old pushed the magic button on RANDOM.ORG earlier this evening...
742 = CONGRATS to: goodmedicine
P.S. The official contest "number picker" of the unofficial contest wanted the winner to have this prize:
She didn't think much of the rest of the prizes. She'll learn. I think it is the best prize in the pile but I am a little biased...
