    Hi Folks,

    For anyone looking at this thread (http://www.cyclechat.co.uk/forums/showthread.php?t=3629) page 3 onwards, you will see that I have decided to put my old helmet camera up as a prize. As a little twist I will also be lending the camera to bonj so that he can film some of his rides. (For some reason people appear to be interested in bonj's cycling capabilities? xx( )
    So with the permission of the cyclechat admin (Thanks!) I bring you

    Magnatoms's Cyclechat Prize Draw Thingy

    Have a look here

    http://www.justgiving.com/magnatom

    The blurb is:

    Hi Folks,

    I'm looking for entries/donations of £2 or more to win the ATC-2000 helmet camera. It will come with helmet attachment and a 2Gb Sandisk II memory card. (I'll look out the other attachments as they must be in the house somewhere!) Each donation will provide one entry only.

    It will be going to Bonj for a maximum of 1 month (as we want to see what his cycling is like!) upon which he will pass the camera to the winner.

    Donations will be accepted for 3 months (this is the minimum time I can set on justgiving so feel free to donate after the competition), however, the closing date for the draw will be Friday 12th October noon. Only members who live in the UK will be entered into the draw (due to postage costs). To ensure that you are in the draw enter your cyclechat username in the display name section. Jovial banter in the comments section is highly encouraged!

    After closing the competition I will place all of the usernames in a hat and the first name out of the hat wins (even if it is bonj!) I will video the draw to show that it was fair. If there is another member who wants to meet me that weekend, maybe I can get them to draw it. (Usually a nice looking lady would be required but I'm not that fussy!) If a few members want to meet (Glasgow) we could always have the draw in a pub somewhere!

    Anyway good luck and thanks for the donations/entries!!

    Donations are going to the Scottish Motor Neurone Disease Association. I apologise that this is a local charity, but I chose it because my mother has unfortunately developed this disease. I would just like to pay them back for the good work that they are doing. They also support research into the condition, which, although it won't help my mum, it might help others in the future.

    I'll be posting the camera to bonj this weekend (barring any more magnatom children becoming sick!) so if you win, you should get your prize in just over a months time.

    And just to clarify if for some strange reason you don't want bonj to know where you live :sad: I can arrange to send it to you.

    (Can someone sticky this please here and in cycle cafe?)

    well it can't possibly be a fix if I win because no-one else enters...
    which at the moment is looking like the likely outcome! xx(
    come on people you've got to bid to stop me winning it!

    I was trying to think of ways of raising money and this seemed like a good idea (and a bit of fun:biggrin:)

    We should get to see some footage from bonj as well. Result!
