Dang-it! Just ain't ever any fun when life "gets in the way..." "Contests" such as this certainly contribute to the overall allure (and enjoyability) of membership here. It's amusing to see all the folks come "out of the woodwork" in such "event-type" threads, but certainly not at all surprising. As I've stated before, I've been a member of several forums from MasterCraft boats, to Harley-Davidson forums, other gun-related sites, classic car forums, etc. I spent a great deal of time on a particular Harley forum in which we had some similar threads that seemed to "encourage" participation. For example, we had t-shirt swaps where several (50-100 or so) members would sign up. Two members in different regions would then be paired and would send one another a t-shirt from their respective local H-D dealerships. Pretty cool... One of the things I have thought of suggesting, which was something we also did, is to have meet-and-greet type events. Local members would get together and ride, etc. Met some great folks and have remained good friends with several of them. Might be interesting to coordinate a shooting range gathering with some of the Sako Collector members in the various regions (states/countries). I know there are several members I've seen here who live in Houston or surrounding areas. Would love to meet at a range, meet some fellow members, pull some trigger and admire some other fine Sakos. Anyway, just a thought. Thanks again, Stone!
