    Members... Please read. Need opinion

    We have seen many new visitors over the last few weeks. Although we are only a few months old, things are starting to become really exciting. I have a thought. (don't make fun of that)

    We all LOVE BB shows and most of us can't afford to fly to them, book a hotel, get into the shows, etc... What do you guys think of having some sort of raffle or something that will collect enough money to pay a few selected members by either a random number or selected from other members to go and take pictures and give our board the play by play of the major shows like the MR. O? The website wouldn't profit from the event, but it will give some lucky people a chance to go to the event and take pictures. We could maybe sell gear or something (Totaly kidding!!!) But maybe we could sell shirts or something? Just the start of an idea.....

    ANY INPUT or FEEDBACK???

    I think that is a greta idea, but how would you choose a perfectly random number. You could run a computer generated program to pick the user then we'd have to trust that you guys were not lieing or have a live web cast of members names being picked from a hat, but then all the names might not be in there, so the biggest challenge would be makeing it fair.

    Full Intensity, we would find a way to make this fair for everyone. Everyone would have an equal opportunity to win. I am shocked that no one is replying to this. I think it is a great idea. I know if I was a member I would be all over this. It has always been my dream to go to the Mr. Olympia. Everyone would benefit because we could all get some cool photos or something even if we didn't go. Ok, if you wouldn't want to do this I want to know why. This makes absolutely no since to me why everyone isn't responding. This has never been done by a website as far as I know. Please let me hear some responses. Mugs, I think it's a great idea. If no one else wants to go, can I?

    I will make this easy for everyone...whoever is coming to either the USA's or the O next year, can stay at my place...for a fraction of the cost you would pay at one of the hotels here...then i will take the money you all give me and go get a penthouse suite for myself. It's so simple, Jason.

    The only way I'm staying at your place is if you're there.

    if all the people involved lived in mandalay bay then i'd trust it

    good idea though i like it, just not feeling the "random draw" process,haha

    Don't worry guys, as much as I would like to be the one to go, I won't be the one picked.

    Partyboy, if we did the drawing it will be in a way that even you will consider it fair. I have never lied to any of you in my life, so I damn sure am not going to start now. Whatever we do will have my promise that it will be totally legit. We will probably have to have a limited number of people who could register for it. That way we could say the total package is worth $1,000 dollars. We made $5 much off each ticket and we can only allow 200 to sign up to win it. Those numbers aren't factual, but you get the point. We just want to give something back to everyone, and this was one of the better ideas that we have come up with.

    Mugs Guest

    please bump this

    Another thought is... that the person that does go to the show, they can purchase shirts, tanks, hats posters, etc... We can send in the money and send it with the person that goes to the show with a list. We can prove his adress by getting copies of social # and drivers liscence. That will prevent us from getting ripped off. I dont think a member would do that knowing we are going to be tracing everything. Besides, I have the money to prosecute!! Anyway, Keep this in mind for those who are skeptical about us picking someone other than in a random order.....to rip off the members of our board would ruin the reputation of this board, all my 1 million domains that I have purchased, my hobby, and more importantly, it will piss off some good friends That I have made thus far. Some onebump this... I just want to make things fun around here.

    Send me. Send me. I think it's an awesome idea and I'd go to the shows in a second. Being a student, I can never afford most shows, so haven't been to many. Great idea.

    excellent idea on the contest play by plays. i'd be in on the idea if there were any real outcomes from this. from firsthand experience, i was there for the olympia, and got the pics of the autograph sessions. as for the t-shirts would be the big thing to get rollin'. hell, i know i'd wear one....everywhere!

    That would be great...I have another idea..Why don't we all take a road trip and just take over the MR O. next year. I 'll bet we can take them. I guarantee Ronnie is a slow man.
