Yep - The circus is in town folks! There has been so much talk about the great work that members collaborate on here, for example, 556MP makes a knife and Ratty1 makes the sheath. There have been some amazing examples of these joint efforts and we want to take advantage of it! Site management has blessed the concept of a member collaboration auction! Upthecreek and I will be managing this endeavor and here is the concept: 1. Interested members and vendors will reach out to eachother and develop an idea for a knife, tool, pouch, artwork, etc. where more than one member applies their skills to the project. As an example, my daughters and I will make a knife blade, ask Aven to finish the grips and than send it to Growling Bear to finish the blade and make a sheath (BTW - I haven't talked to these folks yet, but you get the idea...). 2. Once you have a sense of what you want to do, post up thread indicating your intent. Upthecreek will track the collaborations. Ideally projects will be completed by the end of June... 3. Once you finish your project, post up pics and indicate that you are donating it to our auction. We will auction off the items as they are completed and the proceeds will be given to BCUSA. At the discretion of site management, a portion of the proceeds will be used to create a "Campfire Fund", a pool of money that mods can distribute to good causes or members with legitimate needs. Also, if you have collaboration item in your posession, feel free to post them here just to show them off! Upthecreek and I will be winging this a little so be patient with us. Let's go!
