First of all, Thanks for all the extra ideas on how to host an event fair for all.
We decide to limit it to 5 cabbers. "Sorry Carvers." The time allocated would have to be much longer to hold the two events. Still a possibility, more to figure out.
Two stones are going to be sent to each cutter at random. I think we have 4? allready. I have to go back to look. Postage paid to you from me, Postage paid back from you.
The one cabbed must be returned after its completed you choose out of the two you would like to cab. The second stone is yours to keep for your hard work and time. The time frame can be up to 2 weeks to complete no longer "please"! DELIVERY IS SLOW CROSSING BORDERS. After you receive your stones you must notify me in a PM they both arrived.
A picture of the rough should be posted by us after they are all sent to the cutters participating, and we'll keep it a "secret" who got what. "sneaky"
As soon as we get all the finished entries back, we'll take pics so no modifications can be done and all the participants cabbed stones are taken from the same camera in the same lighting condition and posted at the same time.
Next they are all posted, voted on from this sites forum members, in a one week time period. "figure out how to do that one later"
Then the winning artists name is annouced for a prize of 1 mixed pound of disdero rough.
Sound fair? Pretty sure its all laid out on here. I'll give you a day or two 2 read this and the 4 who stepped up allready can decide if they still want in or not. There names are on the disdero thread i posted earlier just re-enter it on this thread please.
Thanks and good luck to all that partake.
Todd and Warren.

Awwe, Hey Krystee, it was MY privilege to have you work the Disdero, and work you did! Awesome job my friend and thanks for voicing your positive opinion on the material! Thank-you to the other members from RTH for the attention (although scandalous at times as Chad put it) and input. A special thanks to Krystee, Helen, Donnie (Donnie's Treasures) and Uncle Stu for participating and your special and extraordinary work on the Disderos!!:)  I'm anticipating atleast the same passion and excitement will be generated on this forum! I would like every member here to share in the Disdero dream.... If you can't dig it... Cut it!

So the guidelines have been set, the 4 cabbers who expressed interest on the original thread will be contestants if they still choose to be. The fifth cabber will be the next to reply to this thread! Not everybody has seen this and if this sparks interest we will do more! For this first contest we are going to mail the 5 contestants a random stone so they won't know what they're getting till they open the package! Refer to Todd's post if you're unsure of the guidelines.

Here's a link to the thread being referred to:

http://gemstone.smfforfree4.com/index.php/topic,10870.0.html

and in reading it I'm pretty sure I'm one of the four but honestly not certain. I don't think anyone would mind if you listed us by forum name - would sure be easier for me ('cause I'm a hell bat high on natural cave gas chasing the name dizzy with every whack of a wall I hit chuckle )
