What's new

The "I Lurvz My B&B!" March 2012 Fundraiser

Once more we wish to welcome you to the sometimes annual Support B&B Contest. This event is being brought to you by the self-appointed and self-important B&B Fund Raising Committee. Members include brianw, jakespoppy, hdstreetglide, beginnish, captp, maxman, natchez and yours truly, Mr. Scruffy. Honorary members are Sullybob, dkh, strop and rearviewmirror.

Our Story (once again):
We like B&B. We think that you do too. We truly enjoy our time spent here. Each of us through B&B has been afforded a wonderful source of information, inspiration, support, camaraderie and general good fun in our respective pursuit of shaving happiness. Because of this forum and those who participate here we have transitioned from lethargic, face scraping automatons to well educated, well informed and contented wetshavers. Straights or DE’s, soaps or creams, badger or boar, regardless of your chosen setup this board has helped guide you through the process of finding what works for you. You have adopted the B&B mantra, “YMMV”.

And the additions over the last year of new forums such as The Nib and The Brown Leaf have reflected our members' desire to expand our areas of interest as we pursue the more gentlemanly aspects of life.

Continuing the task we have assigned ourselves to assist in assuring the financial viability of Badger and Blade we have assembled a grab bag of goodies from our personal stashes to entice and reward B&B members who support this community with their hard earned coin. We don’t have a specific purpose for this fund drive other than to show support for the forum. We will leave it up to Joel and Nick to determine the best uses for the funds we raise here.

Here's how the contest will work:
  • The format is pretty much the same as previous fundraisers. All members are eligible for the contest. We especially wish to encourage the participation of our international members. Lurkers will need to join in order to play.
  • A raffle will be held to award the goodies listed below to four deserving B&B contributors. The entry period for the raffle begins now and will end at 7:00 PM CDT on Wednesday April 4, 2012.
  • Any B&B member who becomes a new Copper Level ($20) or higher contributor will be automatically eligible for the raffle. In order to enter the raffle, go to the Contributor's Corner and add a post to the"I Lurvz My B&B" thread. Include in your post the words "I Lurvz B&B". Don't forget to make your contribution before posting to this thread!!
  • Members who have previously contributed, regardless of amount, can participate in this contest by making another $20 contribution.
  • Only one entry per member is allowed.
  • The First Place Prize, Second Place Prize and Third Place Prize will be awarded to members whose entries have been selected by a random number generator on the first day following the end of the entry period.
  • As always, there is one flaw in this plan. We can tell you are a contributor by the tag that appears next to your user name, but we have no way of knowing when your support was given. So we want to remind everyone that the honor system applies to this contest. Play nice. Play fair..
  • This is the most important rule – NO WHINING, COMPLAINING, CRYING, TANTRUMS, SNARKINESS OR GENERAL DISPLAYS OF BAD ATTITUDE...Violators will be disqualified at the discretion of the committee members, without refund of any contribution made.
  • Rules are subject to change at our discretion to accommodate what we feel to be fair play for all.

Oh my, Oh my, Oh my !!!!! Harry say it ain't so !!!!!

and for all you Sabbaticalians out there... This does not count !!!!!
Hey Harry. I hope I did everything correctly. Paid up with PayPal, posted in the thread you linked to. Love it. And happy to support B&B.

Cheers, Todd
Oh man, I've had my eye on the 2008 forever (or at least sometime after 2008). The $100 pool might be smaller :idea:


Pretty Pink Fairy Princess.
Wow, did I see 2 B&B 2009 Kent LE Butterscotch??? As a Committee member, I deem myself ineligible, but, man, would I like a chance at the watch, or the 2009 B&B Ebony LE brush. Oh well.
I made a contribution last week am I eligible for this?

I made my contribution on the 15th so I hope I am in!

From the original post:
A raffle will be held to award the goodies listed below to four deserving B&B contributors. The entry period for the raffle begins now and will end at 7:00 PM CDT on Wednesday April 4, 2012.

I just re-up'ed about a week ago myself, but I don't think it will qualify us for the drawing. Guess it is time to dig deep!

EDIT: sorry, quoted wrong post.
