Well folks, in the spirit of Steve Paskey's recent boat plans give-away that was such a resounding success I will be conducting a fantastic Poster Extravaganza.
What we've got here are a bunch of posters from the Rum Regatta held every year in Flensburg Germany. The posters come from Regatta organizer and WBForum member Martin Shultz. He sent them to Joe who gave them to me.
I was fortunate enough to have some help from my 13 year old daughter who offered to hold them up for me to take some snapshots. She even dressed the part. :D
So, without further ado, here are the posters:

#1:

#6 - I had a little trouble getting help holding this one, she said it was creepy:

:D


So these are the posters. Who wants one? And which one or ones do you want? I'll probably put the names in a 'hat' the way Steve did and have a live drawing. Let's get this show rolling! Who's in?

The plot thickens!


Do you think I need to post this in the bilge, too? Some of those rats and rattses don't get up here in the fresh air enough. :D

Nahhhhh, lets keep it a secret..;)

But if you must..

How many are there in total?

StevenBauer
08-05-2008, 08:15 PM
I haven't even counted them yet. There are just a few of some and more of others. No takers for #6 yet?


Steven

Steven, I thought I adequately explained to you that it evaporated ;)

ChrisBen
08-06-2008, 11:58 AM
Pretty cool Steve. I like #6 or even #2 if you can throw my name in the hat, Thanks.

elf
08-06-2008, 12:30 PM
Put me in for a 4 and/or 2. But I really like the red one!

StevenBauer

Evaporated!:eek:!??? There are about half a dozen pictures on the Forum showing you drinking it! :eek:

I'm in for #5, danke.

Joe Dupere
08-06-2008, 07:41 PM
Well, it looks like they're all spoken for. But if you're putting names in a hat, pop mine in for number 2.

Joe, FPoP

What is it about little girls that they grow up looking better than the best parts of both parents? I can't believe how much she's grown since I was there for the S&A party!!

Katherine
08-06-2008, 07:53 PM
Can I get one or two for Paul? It doesn't really matter which number.:)

Anyone but #5 I like #1 and #4 best tho....

StevenBauer
08-18-2008, 04:56 PM
OK, Mary's back, she wanted me to wait so she could help. :) We'll be doing the drawing soon, does anyone else want their name in the hat for a particular poster? I'll give you tonight and tomorrow. :)



Steven

Id like to be considered for #2 or #5

Thanks :)

Songololo

Steven, in an attempt to return a poster to it's port of origin, or at least bring it a bit closer (i.e. Switzerland), I'd like to put in a bid for #2, #3 or #4... ;)

Lance

StevenBauer
08-28-2008, 07:41 AM
OK, tonight's the night! When Mary and I come back from sailing we're going to pick names from a hat. :) Say around 9ish. :D

I could go for either #1, #4 or #6, please. If I posted #6 on my shop door, my kids would never come in...

Captain Blight
08-28-2008, 06:25 PM
I'd like to throw my hat in the ring for a shot at #s 1 & 6, please.

David G
08-28-2008, 06:56 PM
#6 would gain a coveted spot on our shop office wall. I also like #5 & #1... but #6 is tubular!

StevenBauer
08-28-2008, 06:57 PM

OK, you got my attention from down below. Seems nicer up here! :) At least it doesn't smell like compost. :)

I like #4 and #5.

Rum_Pirate
08-28-2008, 07:27 PM
If there are any left, I'd love #1 , # 4 and #6.

Please tell me what the posting and packing will be and I will send you the funds before you send them.

No point in you being out of pocket. :cool:

Now for the infamous poster #6. The poster so fearsome my spokesmodel wouldn't even touch it. :) She's away visiting her cousins in NJ so there won't be any pictures tonight. ;)


There are 3 posters and 5 bad dudes.

The final posters of the evening go to:

ChrisBen
Captain Blight
and
DavidG


I ordered 20 mailing tubes from Staples and as soon as they come I'll start mailing posters out. Send me your addresses by e-mail or PM. The tubes are about a buck, if you want to reimburse for shipping that wound be appreciated.

I'd like to thank Martin for supplying the posters and Joe for giving them to me to give away.

And thanks to Mary and Celie for all their help. :)

Wow... Thanks Steve. I've been out of town helping some friends move (no internet). Nice surprise to come back to. I'd also like to thank Martin and Joe as well as Mary and Celie for their help.
Sending PM with address.

StevenBauer
09-14-2008, 12:36 PM
OK, sorry for the delay here. The tubes are here and we're getting ready to mail 'em out. But we still need addresses for a few folks. So here's the list:

Joe Dupere
TimH
Russ Manheimer
David Gage
Captain Blight
John Teetsel

If anyone knows how to contact Blighty let me know. Until he's unBanned he might not see this and I can't send a PM.

Thanks guys!

I was wondering when you'd drop by, Martin. :) How's married life? ;)


I still need snail mail addresses for:

Joe Dupere
David Gage
Captain Blight
John Teetsel

StevenBauer
09-19-2008, 08:49 PM
Good news! The posters are in the mail! :) Except for Hugh's - we'll give it to Gingersnap tomorrow. And Gareth picked his up in person. And Blighty's. :( Captain Blight hadn't sent me his address yet before he was sent to 'time out' and hasn't answered the e-mail I sent him. But we're holding on to it for him. If anyone hears from him tell him I have his poster. :)

Every single person who gave me their address offered to repay me for shipping costs. :) Thanks, while not required it is appreciated. It would be fine with me if anyone wants to send $5 to the return address on the shipping tube. The tubes ended up costing a little more than I thought. One Forumite even offered to help share any expenses that didn't get covered.

This has been fun for us and I think you guys will really like the posters - they are fantastic. If possible maybe we can see some pictures of where you are displaying them.

And thanks again to Martin. :)
