    Question Winter Outing GAW Challenge (not a Pass-around)

    I'm Being offered via my 2nd 2015 GAW Challenge is a Lucky 1-2 (Kerri) MultiCam Map Case paired with a MultiCam BadgerClaw Drop Pocket, both items are in new condition. This is a GAW Challenge and not a Pass-around. The Challenge is to complete a winter bushcraft outing in a new area/location. Challenge report should include planning, navigation and winter condition bushcraft skills.

    Due to frustrations with 2014 all thomdarrah 2015 Pass-around GAW will be limited to three entries, GAW Challenges (non pass-around) may have more than three entries. Entries will be selected via proposed outing plan, PM details.

    GAW Challenge - rules:
    1) Must be a Bushcraft USA member with supporter status.
    2) Must complete outing and post TR in month of February.
    3) Must agree to post bushcraft Challenge outing report with pictures and or video.
    4) Agree to participate in scoring.
    5) Best score wins the gear.
    6) These are quality items and deserve a strong effort by all that enter.


    Entry Slots:
    1) EvanStinson (posted)
    2) Blackhawk45hunter (posted)
    3) Snake Eyes (posted)
    4) the_dude (posted)
    5) Sharp_canadian (posted)

    I was surprised all the slots were open when I sent my PM. It's all good. Gonna be a better challenge when people enter who really want it and will put forth a strong effort. My favorite part of Thom's challenges are the experiences we all get from putting forth the effort.

    Maybe I have too many GAW rules, maybe the challenges are too difficult (or too easy) or maybe I need to offer up even nicer incentives (gear).

    I think your spot on with your approach in 2015. The gear is top notch and not only should be earned but should end up in the hands of people who will use and appreciate it not just own it because "it's cool". It's a challenge not a race, the slots will fill.
