Default BASH Contests - IAP Collection Eligible

Hi folks, this IS NOT a "test poll." So your vote is important.

Additions to the IAP Pen Collection, are limited, and one of the primary avenues is the annual BASH Contests in February.

Previously, I (with guidance/suggestions) from the IAP command center have identified several contests to be "IAP Collection Eligible." This simply means that for several contests, the winner of the contest has the OPTION to donate his/her pen to the collection. If they decline, the option is extended to the runner-up.

This is only an option, with no expectation of a donation. Many have donated pens, others have not - and this is they way it should be.

However, this year I would like the IAP membership to decide which contests this option is extended to. Let's limit it to the top three contests by way of a vote.

(Looking towards next year, I will make another poll in a few months to consider having a seperate dedicated contest within the BASH and/or Summer Extravaganza for the IAP Collection. That way no one will enter unless they are already comfortable donating a pen; we could then allow the top 2-3 pens to be added to the collection. But that will be put to a vote in a few months).

So please vote, and feedback is welcomed. This Collection is the property of IAP, so it represents you.

Soon to be announced: The IAP Collection will be displayed at three AAW Chapters in NJ/DEL and the 2019 MPG in 2019. It is getting around.

After someone votes, please let me know if the results are "not viewable," this is they way I wanted it set up (a bit of further practice for the BASH).

Votes are being seen. I voted but what I wanted to see was not there. Why not take all top winners and ask if they would be interested and the group that is interested have a seperate vote by the membership to choose which pen they would like to see added to the collection. Just a suggestion.

I kind of agree with John on this one. Take all the winners, put them in an IAP Collection poll. If you want up to 3 take the top 3 choices of the poll and ask if they want to participate.

If you want to expand put the winner and runner up from each contest in the poll.

I can also select more than one. Not sure if you wanted that or not.

Votes are being seen. OK, I can't change it now, not sure what I did wrong, I don't believe I checked the option for the votes to be public.


Why not take all top winners and ask if they would be interested. We can consider that.


and the group that is interested have a seperate vote by the membership to choose which pen they would like to see added to the collection.

This actually was discussed a while back. It was felt that if a vote combining all the contests together were grouped, Kitless, Segmented, Advanced, Freestyle, etc would dominate the votes. To give a balanced diversity to the overall collection, it was felt that keeping each contest seperate for inclusion would give breadth. Possibly your suggestion above would be a happy medium. But we can revisit this - The views of the membership should prevail.

Note: Freestyle has been reluctantly "retired" from consideration due to storage, transportation for display issues. In most cases they would require their own container, and as at some point this project will need to be "passed on" to another volunteer, we are trying to keep it manageable.

Thanks for the input.

Yes, I intended the poll to allow three contests. Hmnnn, can you vote for for every contest; all six?

Yup, you can vote ALL six. Mark, given that you are getting some results not to what you had intended. Perhaps it's best to void this poll and start another.
