Ok, this question was a little bit of a set up for an idea I?m putting together. Let me know what you think.
Here is the basic idea:
Working Decoys.Net Member Rig Raffle
This is how it would work, to be a part you have to make a decoy (species to be identified or any species depending on what is decided) post a photo of it completed. Then mail the decoy to me. Receipt of the decoy will be your entry into the drawing (so we don't end up with any missing decoys). On a specified date we will draw a name to see who wins the full rig!! I will have some shirts made for everyone who takes part. If a mod or I submit a decoy, we will not be a part of the drawing just to make sure things don't appear to be "fishy".
The way I see it, by submitting a decoy, you stand a chance to win a full rig of custom decoys!! You may end up with foam, wood, cork, canvas and all levels of carvers so it would be a fun rig to use. I don't expect that we will have a huge turnout on doing this so your odds of winning would be something like 1 in 10 to 15....
I know we have carvers of all different levels but I would like to have EVERYONE be comfortable to take part. You might get some starter level decoys and some that you would be challenged to put in the water in the rig.
We would not do it until later in the year, I?m just trying to gauge interest. Would you consider taking part in something like this? Or am I just too far off the wall on this one? Thoughts?
