Holiday Give Away!!

A Holiday Give Away from XS11.com and NewEnough.com!

Link to New Enough.com

For a couple of years XS11.com has been participating in a program at Newenough.com that allows people to donate $1 of “New Enough’s” money to a participating enthusiast web site whenever they make a purchase. So if you buy something from NewEnough.com, please donate some of their money to XS11.com members!!

We have $70.00 to spend and so I am going to have a Christmas drawing for a pair of gloves up to $70.00 (including shipping) from New Enough. The winner will be able to choose the size and style they want!

I got us involved in this because I buy almost all of my motorcycle clothing needs from them. If you have never checked out the web site, please do. Sign up for the email specials, they often have closeouts at huge discounts (Like $100 gloves for $15.00). I am in no way associated with them; I am just a happy customer that has been shopping there for years.

Anyway on to the contest. I would like each member who would like a chance at a free pair of gloves (up to $70 we have in the account) to post a reply to this thread. Each person will be assigned a number based on the order of posting. (You can’t pick your own number) The contest will close on December 24th 2007, which gives everyone a couple weeks to see the postings. I will take all the numbers and enter them into a random number generator; the winner is the person whose posting order number comes up. (This may take a few days, I am working a shutdown during this time.) PLEASE DO NOT POST MORE THAN ONCE TO THIS THREAD!! I WILL HAVE TO MANUALLY CHECK FOR THOSE POSTS! So you may not have the exact post number you think.

If you have questions, PM or email me, don’t post here. I am running this contest, my determination of a winner is final. I am not participating in this contest. I will leave it up to the current admin and moderators whether or not they participate, but rest assured I pull no favorites.

If you don’t like the way the contest is set up then please do not participate. This is the first time we have done this. If you have suggestions on a way to improve it, let me know for next time.

Here is a blurb from NewEnough.com on how they handle this:
“For verification, the web address of all new promotions should be emailed to Paul (New Enough owner) when the promotion or sale begins. At the conclusion of the promotion, advise us of the lucky winner's/buyer's name and shipping information (or just name and email address in the case of a gift certificate). New Enough will ship the product directly to the winner and send confirmation of shipment to the user group owner. The total invoice cost of the shipment (including shipping) will be subtracted from the group's "kitty". Winners will be free to exchange merchandise if necessary directly with New Enough but winners must cover the cost of shipping for exchanges. No refunds will be offered.”

SO with that being said, let the posting begin!

Currently having to ride w/o gloves now as my wife seems to have misplaced them about 2 months ago (thought they belonged to someone else and disposed of them properly).

Consider me included in this drawing....
