Ryan, given the economic times this is a great gesture. I don’t have a super fantastic idea on how you could give this away, but here are some of my thoughts about what has been presented:
If you give it to the best MYOG guy, then the best gear list guy will miss out,
or the best Food Girl(s),
or the lightest pack person,
or the guy who sells the most gear,
or the guy who gives (free) the most gear away
or the guy who buys the most on the gear swap,
or the guy who post the most to chaff,
or the person who has been on the forum the longest,
or the guy who spends the most time on the forums,
good luck on singling out someone from the above- they all deserve it.. and many others that I haven’t mentioned.
BTW, I would be happy to drive the 10 hours from Seattle to attend, but I don’t fit into any of the categories above .
Edited 7/21 Maybe I fit- the guy who reads the most posts without commenting
