Default Birthday Bash Prizes

I am the prize guru for the IAP Birthday Bash.
This is your chance to:
  • Make a difference
  • Help the IAP Management
  • Show your support
  • Payback
  • Payforward
  • Help the IAP Membership
Oh yea,and be an all around "Good Guy or Gal"


We have asked our vendors and they are supporting, but there is still a need.

Many of you cast blanks, cut burls, make tools and jigs, or otherwise do things that most of the rest of us don't.

Please consider a donation to the cause.

We only ask that it be something worthy of our Bash.
I hate to sound picky or ungrateful, but we don't need a box of boring straight grained maple blanks.
PLEASE keep the quality and value up.

Please PM me with details of you donation, and I will let you know how to get it to us.

Bob is doing the hard work this year, but I thought I'd help out with some cheerleading!

Just a reminder - the Bash is entirely funded by donations from vendors and members -so if you have a prize worth $20 or more that you think someone will enjoy, please let Bob know the details, and we'll tell you where to send it in February (or earlier, if you need to ship asap).

Boxes of blanks, superfluous tools, etc - we'll add them to a contest and make sure that another forum member receives them!

Without enough prizes, we'd have to cut back on contests - so please consider donating a prize of a box of blanks, and we'll put it to good use! Magicbob is standing by - let's fill his inbox!

When you decide to donate a box of blanks,(Thank You) if you can give Bob an estimated value of your boxes of blanks it will make my job a lot easier and awarding them a lot fairer. If I dont have a declared value I will usually consider them a $25.00 value and award them accordingly. A special thanks to all who donate it wouldnt be the same without you!
Life occasionally offers us the opportunity to make very very hard choices. I have had such offers.

Hope everyone sees this and considers donating a box.
