At the rate we are going, very soon (within a month) we will have 1000 members here at TRF.........(I know some have signed up and have never been back)........ Our forum is growing at a very fast rate...... I think I was number 631 last June........

PS.......

Should we have a special prize for the 1000th member?

Well we could always buy a Mosquito, build it, spray it gold, and mount it on a working launcher/ plaque. Send it to the person, having them buy a 1/2 A motor locally - and have them take a pic of it launching off the plaque.

Call it the TeRriFic Skeeter !

But we need to find a way to provide a motor (if that's what we choose) and have someone else take a photo-----after all, is this going to be a prize or a penalty?

I would chip into a 'pot' to begin collecting prize stuff for our 1K man (person?). The money could go toward buying a TRF shirt, or a NAR membership, or any number of things. If someone will volunteer to take the point, I will also mail in some kits to go into the package. If most of us chip in something in the way of a small prize, this could end up being a giant prize-pot for someone!

At the rate folks have been joining TRF, we are likely to reach 1,000 in about one month?

Dang..if that comes to fruition, you may see Silverleaf disappear and be reborn as the Martian Thug.

A T-shirt would be a nice gesture, with the words " 1000th member " written on it.

Silverleaf, I would like to think that this bunch of fine, upstanding people would not stoop so low as to game the system?

Anyway, I just noticed that (for whatever reason) the rest of my post didn't make it. What I meant to say was:
At the rate folks have been joining TRF, we are likely to reach 1,000 in about one month? If we are really gonna do this, we had better get this thing organized. Sorry, I would volunteer to be "it" but I am currently up to my eyeballs in ____ . Anyone else?

Actually, I'm thrilled to be here!!! A prize unto itself!

OK, I can see the response to my last question was massively underwhelming.

Hi guys. Best suggestion I can offer at this point is to be patient. The mods are constantly thinking up fun ways of paying the membership back. Not all of those ideas happen but some do. In this case, I agree with styme: A public notice that the 1000th member gets a car will get us flooded with bogus new members. So, my suggestion is to just drop this thread. Not that the mods know any more about running a contest than you guys but it may already be in the works. Course, it may not be and that is my official answer.

Oh, and if you are a vendor and are reading this thread, please send me an email.
