Winter giveaway mystery box #3

Post By: Hawaiian Punch      Posted: 2/11/2020 8:13:45 PM     Points: 6546    
I had this idea that we should have a mystery box of stuff folks from the site contrubited. Talked to Matt and here is how it will work. I'll collect the swag and deliver it to Matt or the winner(if your less than 75 miles from Denver) here are some guidelines,no guns,booze,things that go boom or break any laws. Popeels pocket fisherman . . .yes! White elephants . .sure! That lure that you just had to have and it never caught a single fish . .you bet. This mystery box is going to be the one to get folks . . .there will be many "OOOOHHHH" and AAAHHHs when its unpacked. And a few ?????
So . . .we got till next December to clean the ________ and find treasure/trash. If it has not been out in the light of day in two or three years it might be a good item for mystery box #3.
BTW . .I will be doing this every year!.
Make this a great mystery box!!!!!

That sounds like a cool idea, Punch! I'll definitely look through my stuff and see what I can contribute.

I'm in. I have a box of stuff, some of which is pretty good, but that I'll never use.

I just inherited a bunch of salmon and pike fishing stuff from a friend who is calling it quits on Alaskan fishing adventures. There is no way I can use all this stuff so I am definitely interested in finding some of it a good home. Let us know when you want to start collecting.

I can see I've created a monster!
We got till December to collect it all,but you folks can get in touch with me by email or phone.
My home phone has messaging service 303-431-6190 I'm home after 5pm
I'm excited to put my efforts to use,this could be the best item in the winter giveaway.
What I really want? To be the fly on the wall when the winner unpacks the mystery box.

Hey Dan, you work about 10 minutes from my house. You are welcome to drop by and go thru all my extraneous gear sometime for the box.

One other thing that I have seen done with such Boxes - you put it all in there and then circulate it. It becomes a take some, add some box that goes from one person to the next. Eventually someone spoils the fun and just keeps it, but it goes further and probably does more good along the way when people can take what they want and give what they don't use...
For the while that it circulates.

I['m not saying you need to do all the extra work, but I am saying that the recipient can offer to take on the next generation of it and offer it back up, if they like, and might be encouraged to do so.
