Now to the third and last chapter of this amazing campaign!
Looking forward to it--and getting a chance to win a K-new!

hmm

I wonder if the slow down in posting in this particular thread was because of the realization that posts here don't count toward a member's personal posts for the raffles ?

[ something I was aware of back in the beginning of this thread ]

________________________

it's getting down to the end, only 30 days in November remember

personally my posts are a little down but it does look like a large number of members will qualify for the general and grand prize raffles

credit goes to them, Adam and all others who helped come up with these contests.
I was the same. I have also found it hard to get going this month but the prize of a K-new, well, you just have to be in.

and after that, it just depends on chance. For the first 'raffle' I had eleven tickets; Larrymc received the lens with "only" five - but he was equally deserving, as would have been someone who was holding 'just' one ticket. For me, the "chase" is most of the "fun" anyway. I have a ticket for this 'raffle' too now; I guess the KP I purchased Black Friday last year would become my backup if I were to "win" - but I don't expect to.

Was not selected for the first two raffles, hopefully the third time is the one.

Aslyfox got the KP and I am delighted for him he is very active and helpful all the time boriscleto got the PLM, once again, that's brilliant because he is an established member I am totally with you on the pleasure of participation and, as I don't expect to win, odds against and all that, I am never disappointed I must admit, the thought of my KP being relegated to back up crossed my mind too and I am not sure if I like that idea lol, I only just got use to parking the K3

Winning a K-new would be a terrific augmentation of my K-1 and probably relegate my K-3 to road trips where packing 3 bodies is more doable. Regardless, looking forward to the final specs and release date.

my posts have slowed down each time

9 chances for the first grand prize raffle

7 chances for the second grand prize raffle

I'm at 2 plus now but, of course, I am not eligible for the current Grand Prize Raffle so I am not posting an entry in this last contest

I never expected to win any of these raffles nor the contests last year

so I was very surprised and happy when the random number generator gave me the KP

[ it was scheduled for delivery yesterday, it arrived today ]

to me posting, commenting and if lucky receiving " likes " are the rewards

especially if I am able to help out a fellow member with a post or comment
