Good question.  I have been a

Good question.  I have been a member for a couple of years, and I do not recall them doing this before.  Of course, I had a job that I was in the field alot, and not near a computer, so I was on alot less frquently.  As for next year, I am sure we would all love it.......... Yes

Been here for a bit and this

Been here for a bit and this is the first I have seen of it.  Definetly would be a good thing to try every year around this time as it really get myself going and can't wait to get back into the field.

I have been here since 2006

I have been here since 2006 and this is the first contest that since that time.  it has been fun, but i suppose the site owners will assess the cost-benefits of it. If it was profitable and had long term residual effects thats increased member participation then I bet they'll do it again.  If not, then I suspect this will be the first and the last

grand slam contest

This is the first time we've had a contest of this kind. We primarily came up with the contest to coincide with the relaunch of the new BGH site back at the end of June. Because the new site had so many new features, we felt a contest would be a fun way to inspire everyone to try the new features and contribute to the site. Plus, I'm not sure if most members realize it, but it was also our 10 year anniversary! Yup, BGH has been online since 2000 now!

Will we do this again? We're not sure. It's been costly. We did not have sponsors or donations (except for one pair of Vanguard binoculars), we purchased all prizes. If we could come up with some good sponsors, we would be game to do more.

We may have some other contests and/or give aways, but they will be on a smaller scale.
