We decided to do the promotion where we take one thread each month, and give away a prize to the original poster of the thread. This, our first month, we had a bunch of great posts from people.

We've had a bunch of fun games, we've had some very good questions, we've had reports, tips, everything I could hope for. As I said when I first talked about this promotion, it was not just based on the number of posts, or views... the games or goofy things would always win. We were looking for a combination of that, but also posts that try to reflect what ScubaToys and this forum are about. Helping one another, being nice to other people out here, taking time to think about others, share, etc.

With that criteria, the mathematical algorithm narrowed our field, but besides our heads, we had to vote with our hearts, and I believe this post by mwhities was one that touched all of us on the board deeply.

For that reason, the Bare suit, in his choice of size is deservedly his. Congratulations! :smiley32::smiley32::smiley32:

So now on to another contest!

This month, we are going to give away a UK Tribal Pak (http://www.scubatoys.com/store/detail.asp?PRODUCT_ID=TribalPak) with a HID Light Cannon and a Titanium Blue tang knife, along with a back up light. Retailing for over $300, this is a great prize!

So keep the great posts coming guys! You have all done such a great job of adding information, assistance, and just a plain ole' butt load of fun to this forum, and to each and every one of you, I'd like to say thanks and best of luck for this month!

And a very big congratulations to mwhities for his thread. Also congratulations to all that have decided to contribute their gift certificates. I hadn't read the thread until tonight and I need to go add my name to the list of users that will contribute.

also big thanks to Joe and Larry for providing the gift certificates in the first place :)

<sorry to cross post in two threads, but this seems to be gaining momentum as the congratulations thread)

I want to thank ST's for choosing my thread to win. I didn't even think about it to win any prizes. I just wanted to help another person out the way people have helped me out.

A big thank you to all of you that has read the post and graciously donated their 10 or 50 dollar gift card. Thank you as well for the congratz here.

To show my appreciation and support for what I believe in, I'm going to throw in this wet suit to the person we decide that deserves it. Why stop at my 50.00 gift card or my 10.00 gift card? (If Larry and Joe will allow, I'm going to add it to the donation fund.)

With that said, I still challenge everyone to donate their cards or maybe buy a small gift card and give it to ST's to continue building the pot. I'm going to continue, even after it's awarded, to help build the pot up for another (or two) person(s).

God bless all of you that's helped and that will help.

Michael

Could not have went to a more deserving winner.

I look forward to hearing how things are going Michael and just let us know when to ask Larry to hand over the gift certificates.

It would be an honour to dive with you mate!

"Do unto others as you would have them do unto you."

Not that I want anything back but a smile and a happy diver.

I've always tried my best to help anyone I can. It's just who I am.

I guess the lost of my arm really pushed me to be who I am. Not to take advantage of what we have. I've been blessed with so much that I want to give out all the blessings I can.

Call me crazy, call me what you will, I'm just being me.
