WHAT?! No 14ers.com Raffle this year?

Postby BillMiddlebrook » Fri May 09, 2008 8:26 am

Instead of running a raffle this spring, I'm going to rely on the 14ers.com Store to provide the funds necessary to run the site this year. I know, I know, many of you loved the raffle! To promote the store, here's what I'm going to do this summer...

Give away 4 Garmin eTrex Vista HCx GPS units between June and August

Ah, but here's where it gets interesting. I'm going to randomly give them away on the trail when I see people wearing a 14ers.com cap or shirt. Seriously! About every two weeks I'm going to keep an eTrex Vista HCx Bundle (GPS, neoprene carry case, TOPO US 2008 CD, 128MB MicroSD memory card) in my pack and just hand it to someone on the trail.

So, if you buy a cap or shirt in the store, you're not only supporting the site at the time of your purchase, you may also get a free GPS out of it.

More info to come...

Great. I never thought I'd stalk anybody, much less a guy.
Bill, you have made me sink to a new low.

Funny!
Maybe I'm just doing this to make friends!
A certain climbing partner of mine likes to point out that I could count my friends on one hand even after loosing a few fingers to frostbite!

LOL. That's kind of rude. Can he/she name the friend too?! You told me once that Tanja was your best friend:

Better get N. Maroon to 'finish' off the peaks!

Oh no, how did she find her way back to the site. :lol:

Or just start over... :D

Bill, what a fun idea. You may just have a trail of people in 14ers.com gear following you around. What a great idea to clean out your inventory too! :lol:
