Thumbs up Attention all new and older members game participants...!

G'day peoples,

After some consideration, I decided to change the Mr. Anonimous games platform and principals and make it a "game of luck" where your knowledge level and experience has no influence and or importance to get the prize/win.

I want to give some incentive to our new members and those that aren't so new but still in the "cooking" stages, I want all them to participate and be part of these games, something that has been very difficult to achieve with games based on relevant knowledge to this industry and wood processing characteristics so, I'm going to make it extremely simple and easy to participate.

So, what is this new game about it...?

Well, I will start/open the game as normal and instead of asking questions, you guys and gals that want to participate and have a shot at the AU$100.00 give voucher, the only thing you will need to do is to post and say something like, "I want in", "I will play" I'm in", "count me in", etc., etc...!

Your name is then put in a small piece of paper, folded and put in a hat/bucket/container/whatever I got on hand, the game will be open for 3 days (72 hours) during to which I and any of you are invited to post some jokes or interesting stories that will give us a "giggle" while we are all waiting for the 3 days to pass.

I only need one post with your confirmation that you're in the game, the rest you can post as you wish.

After the 3 days and all the names in the hat, I will ask Merissa to remove one only folded paper and I will request her to unfold and read the name.

To make sure you can see/follow this process, we will have a video camera recording that moment, Merissa after reading the winner's name, she will turn the paper towards the camera so that everybody can see it. This will be made with the camera fixed/pointed towards the draw heat, this will be quick and sweet...!

The winner will be then announced in the main thread as normal, the rules for the selection of the blanks still the same, you need to divide the $100 into 3 categories, raw blanks, stabilised blanks and Resifill (cast) blanks, any extra purchases outside the voucher amount, you can select whatever you wish...!

So, the next Mr. A game with the new format will be starting in a few days time so, get ready...!

Please, new members, you have no excuses to not participate in these games, everybody has the exact same chances to win the AU$100.00 prize so, let's make it so that nobody gets disappointed...!

PS: I hope I haven't forgotten any important detail...!

Cheers
George

Thanks, George! I've been wanting to participate but never am at my computer to look through all of your wood to try to find the right ones. I like trivia, but have only been woodworking for about a year...

Looking forward to it!

Eric

Thanks guys,

Simple things are often the most enjoyable, I also should acknowledge that there are a great number of members and followers on IAP that would prefer me to continue "teasing" their minds with my questions and subjects relevance, all part of the learning process and information sharing, that is a powerful tool no doubt and I'm known to get deep into these issues that are connected/linked the one way or the other with the wood industry and all its possible directions, including pen turning/making/dressing, I understand and accept all that, I'm not saying that I will not come back to the older game format one day but for now and until I see it appropriate, the "luck game" will be the one that will provide us with some entertainment for a while...!

Cheers
George

I can't wait to participate. I was told about your game when I first joined by a member who is semi local to me.
