To be clear, talking about a little something you’ve given freely doesn’t nullify your deed or make you boastful, it’s not witchcraft or a competition between you Big Smile
It’s just a nice simple rule to keep the riffraff from entering and show me something of your character. Seems to be working well so far… Innocent

It is my give away that I will be putting a lot of work and time into so that’s the way it is.
Thanks for your understanding (or not) Wink Thumbs Up

I gave my boss three different flashlights because he kept misplacing them. My fishing buddy got an itp from me and carried it 4 years before it died. Friends have been given eo1’s and itp’s. While I probably don’t deserve a CRX I will put my name in the mix.
Thanks for your generosity.

I’m in, thanks CRX.

I don’t like puffing about things I’ve given away either, but I have given some Lumintops, Convoy’s and a few Reylights away.

Congrats on 3000 posts, always a pleasure to see what you’re up to.

I’m in, but please consider my entry to be in the name of our admin, sb56637… since I got into flashlights over 5 years ago I’ve been here virtually daily, many times most of the day (don’t believe me? look at MY post count! Silly ) Were it not for sb hosting this site we couldn’t be here, and now WE are over 27,000 members strong! So yeah, if I were to win your giveaway please contact sb for instructions how to send it to him. Wink

Can’t wait to see how those bits o brass turn out… Big Smile

Thanks for the opportunity to win a CRX creation! I have given flashlights, batteries and chargers to family members (along with information for safe operation) especially the ones who need dependable bright lights to take their puppy family members out at night.

Thank you for the chance to win one of your flashlights CRX.

Last thing I gave away was a Sofirn with a XPL High LED. He said he likes tight beams like from his SK zoomie. So I said keep this one.

This is bound to be great. Your 3000+ posts are filled with many awesome hand-made creations (like that O.L. 6th Annual entry!)

I love when I have the opportunity to fill a need. Recently a member posted about needing a few LEDs so I opened up the parts bin and packed up every LED I didn’t think I’d be using soon. Gave me more space in the bins and hopefully helped some new lights come together. What goes around comes around – let it be good!

I am in i guess. I like to school kids on Battlefield on a daily basis lol is that included? Teach them a lesson lol.

On a serious note i have given away lights and chargers to fellows Aussies cause shipping is reasonable to ship within Australia.

I feel the best thing about BLF isn’t the giveaways its the advice and knowledge i can get. I can ask any stupid question not relating to lights and still get an answer. Could be the most random bit of advice that i need. Only advise ill skip is the BLF financial advise lots of us have a nest egg of lights not sure how that one will hatch out Silly lol.

Give aways are one of the better thing on this forum, thanks for keeping it real Smile
I’ve done a few ones myself, but no need to tell I think Innocent
I’m planning a new one soon, I have to hurry

Count me in Stevi.

I’ve given away, to various mates, most of the Olight torches that the delightful Sandra sent me for review over the last couple of years. She’s now moved on to pastures new but I’m still in touch with her as a friend.

Thanks CRX for so many valuable posts in so many years.

I’m not in for the CRX-special, I misuse my lights too much to own such a beauty.

Hmm, what did I give away? Lots of numbers and graphs I guess Party

Thank you for the chance in your giveaway. Very generous of you.

I’ve given each of my family members a flashlight (mostly Sofirn kits, but a Convoy and Eagle Eye too).

I’m an amateur woodworker and I gave every family group in my extended family a cutting board/cheese tray/charcuterie board made from the walnut tree from our childhood home.

I’m also an elementary school teacher and am making some wooden pencil holders for my students to reuse some scrap cutoffs.

Congrats on your 3000 posts. Please count me in on this great giveaway.

I am very curious as to what a CRX light is. They must be amazing due to the comments I have read here.

I have given countless flashlights to family and friends over the years, hoping they will enjoy and use them, or maybe turning someone into a (another) flashaholic.

But I really enjoy giving them to children. For this X-mas, I gave out 5 of those Life Gear Glow Sticks with flashlight, flasher, and whistle/lanyard, all to children under the age of 5. They were a hit!

The lighter the brighter the better.

Some are better than others, each one is a unique prototype Wink

The idea behind a “CRX light” is the making of a flashlight by your own hands without having access to a lathe or CNC machine from easily obtained parts & materials using only everyday common hand tools, i.e just about anyone could make them with some thought, dedication & perseverance.

Thanks for the gaw.

My old friend lost his job for not agreeing with one of the big wigs. He wanted to do some camping and he has a really crappy light. His only headlamp is the Princeton EOS. Unfortunately he put alkaline in it and it leaked. I felt bad so I gave him my Olight R50 Seeker as a Christmas present. Rechargeable and reliable, now he can go camping and relax a bit before looking for another job.

I gave my house to 10 people and 9 dogs for 2 weeks after the “campfire” in CA USA, they were family and friends that lost everything they owned in the fire, flashlights came in handy for those 2 weeks, love your stuff, thank you for the giveaway.

Slow is smooth, smooth is fast.
