Yeah, I would think you would have been more concerned about 'exposing' those shorts than that new extractor.

Brice,  Congrats!  I was not expecting it to arrive today so unfortunately the drawing for the two other winners of something yet to be announced will be tomorrow.

BUT,

In the meantime, I want to announce that there are TWO other winners of Fogtainers.  Thru this entire project two members have contributed much time and effort to the project.  This time and effort goes far beyond what we saw on the forum - so much goes on behind the scenes.  Remember that old saying " a picture is worth a thousand words"?  We have a saying here that is similar "If you don't have pictures it didn't happen!"  Maybe from now on we can have a new saying: "If you have pictures - It CAN happen!"

Well, those two members were instrumental in the development and continuation of this project and have pestered me to death with questions about what else they could do to take a load off of me.  Well, I have an answer for them finally.

Wayne and Jonathan.  It seems that I will be getting some Fogtainers in the future, and I don't have room to keep a few.  So, in recognition of your skills and efforts to make this project the sensational success that it has become, as fully evidenced by the comments of others here, I hope that you will enjoy your new Fogtainers as a thank you from all of us.  

JONATHAN & WAYNE,  CONGRATULATIONS!

Congratulations Brice!  So well deserved, truly.  Not only for catalyzing the Fogtainer project into a "retail" movement, but for all you contribute to this forum and we all benefit from.

Congrats also to Wayne and Johnny.  You guys have an alternative career in 3d modeling / CG content.  I dunno if your pictures were worth a thousand words.. my jaw just dropped and I was kinda stunned quiet.   [wink]

Congrats Brice - well deserved in both your idea for such an event and overall contributions to the FOG.

Congrats also to Jonathan & Wayne as well.  That was a nice, unexpected gesture Peter - good move and a testament to your always considering the other guy, and the next guy, and the next guy...

The 3 winners come from the US, UK and South Africa. Truly a global effort. Well done all and especially Peter.

And well done to everyone who supported the project by buying a fogtainer! This has been great fun.

Thanks Neil and to everyone else.  I'm so glad Jonny and Wayne will be getting Fogtainers of their own. 

BTW, the I Fogtainer 1 won't see a jobsite, I'd hate for it to get beat up.  I plan to proudly display next to my desk that way it can keep an eye on the FOG.

!!!!!!!!!! FREAK !!!!!!!!!! last night there was nothing on now a million posts, feels like i woke up a week later. CONGRATULATIONS Brice!! You really deserve the one and only FOGtainer I, without your idea i dont think anyone would have thought of actually getting this project up and running. Again thanks to Peter for making this experience so amazingly fun for all of us. Also for all the hard work that i dont think many people would have done. I cant imagine how much behind the scenes work you had to do, and still have to do. ( But like you said if there arnt any pictures it didnt happen [tongue] ).

And Im getting FOGtainers too!!! This week just gets better and better. THANKS A MILLION PETER. And congrats to Johny also, I hope you enjoy yours as much as im going to enjoy mine.

 [thanks]

Should have known it would be Brice... these rockstars get all the benefits  [poke]

Pun aside: I think you all deserve the extra attention and appreciation. Oh, and the prizes are welcome as well, I imagine.
Great work guys, you can be proud of yourselves.

Random note to all: Shouldn't Peter be awarded as well somehow?

Congratulations guys on a well deserved win!  Nice Blaklader shorts Brice!  Next time you win you'll have to wear their kilt and mittens!

I think Peter should be awarded with a Festool position, something like Overseer of import for NAINA goods, Vice Big Cheese or something along those lines and maybe some stock in the company.

Thank you to everyone for participating in this project for so many months.  It has been an enjoyable experience for me, and Kevin D. was correct in that my biggest enjoyment has been the way the members have embraced this idea and the way they have made it their own.

I had originally planned on a video of the drawing, but frankly, the trial runs were awful.  So I am working on the post to come a little later tonight.

Were you expecting just two winners?  WRONG!

Be back in a bit....
