Only XXX to go! (August post push!)

It's the start of a new month and we all need to hunker down and make some posts to get to the goal. Let's really push this time and see if we can get the K1 mkII for the winner!

A bit under 45000 to a K1; we'll cross the K1 mkii bridge when we get closer.

Midnight UTC, until midnight on September 1st, UTC-8.

Also, posts in this forum will not count in August. A more effective strategy might be to alert new users of the giveaway, and that they themselves can also win.

So posts in this forum and the various Groups won't count?

Correct, though I may integrate group posts if we're super close to the K-1 II at the end.

In future editions of the giveaway I'd also like to track reviews.

In that case can you perhaps move this @adam or close it? I don't want people posting where they don't get credit.
