UPDATE2: Deadline for posting a mod link is end of day April 20, 2017 (I guess in whatever the final timezone is). I will make the drawing as soon as I can after that.
UPDATE: Great news guys and gals. RMM has agree to match my contribution. We all know how much he has contributed in so many ways. Many a time he has unselfishly taken the time to give me helpful advice both in the forum and in PM's. I know he has done that with countless others here as well.
The winner can use the $60 against a purchase of what ever they choose from Mountain Electronics. Since shipping to outside of the USA can sometimes be expensive, I will contribute up to an additional $15 to cover unexpedited shipping costs (regardless if CONUS or not). Here are links to RMM's vendor thread and to his website:
We all count on him for quality product. So the winner can be assured they will be getting good stuff.
_______________________ ORIGINAL POST______________________
Hey everyone. I have to apologize for posting yet another 1000. I learn and grow so much here still. Much having nothing to do with flashlights. BLF has such an interesting diverse group of talented and nice folks. I'm fortunate to have BLF in my life.
OK, enough mushy, gaggy stuff. One of the things that makes BLF so great is that folks make changes to their lights and share what they did with the forum. The open source environment combined with some very talented folks has resulted in developments that have pushed the flashlight industry. Many flashlight purchasers today enjoy features that BLF members pioneered.
So in the spirit of BLF's contributions to the flashlight industry and hobby, my giveaway is simply, post a link to a flashlight (or any light for that matter) mod that you did and shared on BLF. To encourage folks that haven't modded yet, you can post a mod anytime until I announce the GAW closed. It doesn't have to be anything major. Just change something about a light and share it with the forum. Then, post a link to it in your post here. I apologize to anyone that might break their light doing so, but assume no responsibility for such mishaps. Your mod does not have to be a success. Failures qualify too. We learn just as much from those.
I didn't plan ahead for this one. I want the GAW open to any BLF member in the world that wants to participate. I will find a vendor that can ship worldwide that wants to help sponsor this GAW. I will contribute $30 of my own and hopefully I can find a vendor that will match my contribution for the winner.
Please bare with me as I get the prize side of the GAW arranged.
Only first post counts. I will draw using Random.Org's random number generator. You can post more than once. But, only your first post counts. If I draw a post that doesn't qualify, I will redraw.
Thanks once more to all the folks here that make BLF, BLF.
EDIT: SB never seems to enter GAW's. So if someone makes a post on his behalf, both your first mod post and your additional mod post on SB's behalf will qualify (order does not matter). Of course, your "SB" post will qualify for him and not yourself. Only the first "SB" post that hits this thread will qualify for the drawing.
