Hello members!

I just wanted to let everyone know in advance about our 1 year birthday celebration coming up on July 19, 2008.

I really can't believe this thing is still alive and kicking after a year! I would like to thank each and every member here who had a hand in making VENDiscuss what it is. From those who contributed by shopping our sponsors to those who made their own special contributions by posting some great topics! Every active member here has made a contribution in some way and I am very thankful.

Over the last year we have gone through some ups and downs, trials and tribulations. We've pissed, moaned and bellyached to each other about one thing or another. We've laughed, gotten angry and a time or two we even had to just sit back and think "What the F*** is he thinking?!?"  In the end though, we as a community managed to help a lot of new, and not so new, vendors grow their businesses to new heights. I feel like we've become a big vending family. I've certainly made some new friends that I'm happy to have. That's something we can all be proud of.

On to our celebration!

I'm happy to say that we have a wonderful assortment of prizes to give away. The list below is a preliminary list that I am working on. All these prizes are confirmed and will be given away on Saturday, July 19, 2008. I am also trying to reach out to other board sponsors for more items to add to the list.

Items available to win...

[*](1) $100.00 credit at A&A Global

[*](5) $10.00 gift cards to eBay $50.00 value.

[*](5) Platinum location packages from KickStart. $260.00 value. (Thanks Rob) 

[*](2) accounts to Vend-Trak for 1 year each. $100.00 value. (Thanks Jeremy) 

[*](1) yearly dues to wholesale club of choice. $35.00 value.

[*]A bunch of VENDiscuss bumber stickers.   

Everything will be given away on our birthday. I will fill everyone in on the details of the different contests that will be going on throughout the day soon.

I will tell you though that some of the prizes will be given away at random times throughout the day. I will be checking in from time to time to see who is online at that moment. I will randomly give out a prize to someone who is online when I am! For your best chance to win, make sure you spend as much time on the board as you can. Maybe we can even break that September 1st record of 52 members online at once. I'm tired of looking at that number 52!

Thanks again and good luck to all!

I just realized that I have to entertain ten other Thunderbirds that day who arrive on the 18th in the evening staying thru the 20th.  Oh well.  I will be thinkin' about the gang here on that day.

I am surprised we don't have a few more free location donations from the list of all those Locators we have. Plus it would be a good chance for any that have not had a review posted to earn a good review. I wish I had something to donate but all I have is an extra candy or gumball wheel for a Seaga Millennia.

I've added a section at the top of the board where all the contests will be held. Please let me know if you can NOT see the section entitled "Birthday Celebration Section"

Contests are open to all so you do not need to be a PLUS member to see it.
