Default BASH Contests - IAP Collection Eligible - POLL II

My apologies, the first poll was set up incorrectly, so please take a minute and vote for one contest. The top three will be designated 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.

Let's try this dance again.

First up, let me know if you could only vote ones, and if the votes are hidden.

Thanks.

Another option would be “Best of Show (Bash)”. Put all contest winners from the bash into a poll and let members vote for their favorite and then that pen would be added to the collection.

No slight intended Terre

I agree on the pairing of a pen with a matching box, just a storage problem. Same with the Freestyle contest. Storing 50-60-70+ pens is a bit easier than storing multiple boxes, and individual containers for a freestyle project.

Someday someone else will need to tend to the IAP Collection so I'd like to keep it manageable.

I voiced my opinion in your first thread so I did not vote in this one because I do not agree. Just an opinion.

So true Terre, as is highlighted here.

Segmented pens look awesome in matching boxes and stands!
