Until I get the email link fixed. manually type in my email address reidcr@msn.com.
Something went wrong when I edited to my email address and only the text changed on not the actual address.
Sorry for the mixup
If you have entered a pen already, please resend it to reidcr@msn.com

Thanks

Curt, must be a conspiracy by the other Summer Extravaganzaites... Yours pulls up the wrong email address and mine just plan doesn't work.

For those of you that don't know, there is going to be an eclipse on Monday. So if you live within 2 hundred miles of the path of totality (that's eclipse talk:rolleyes:) the traffic is supposed to be terrible. To be safe and sane, stay home and cast a blank, turn it and make it into a pen. What would do with this pen you ask? Enter the CASTING contest.:biggrin:

There are people that shall go nameless like Mr Vic, that are trying to spread rumors that casting during an eclipse will give you gas. Well I say GAS ON!:eek::tongue::eek:

Don't forget, during the eclipse it's going to be too dark out to do anything. So go inside and cast a blank.

Man am I glad this eclipse thing is over! I was starting to believe the end of the world stuff. I was afraid we weren't going to be able to finish the CASTING CONTEST.:biggrin:

That's right, it's me again. Well, you got about 6 days left in this contest, so let's get going. And I hear there is about a day left in the 17 and under contest so get a kid to make a pen and enter that one too.

We got about 4 days to go for the casting contest. So for those of you that have entered, if you did not get a confirmation from me then resend and also private message me. I have had one already go to my junk file and I caught it. But I go through and delete my junk file fast so I could miss something.

You know, I see a lot of people showing the pens they made from blanks they cast themselves. Instead of showing them right away, enter them. The more the merrier. And you don't want to let me off running an easy contest.:biggrin:

Don't forget to PM me if you have sent in an entry and haven't got a reply from me confirming I have received it.
And we only have about 3 days left.
