Glad to Win a Gladius!

Each year for the last several years has seen a member-initiated donation drive intended to pay the big annual cost to host this site. This year's drive ended a couple months ago and successfully paid off that hosting bill. This contest is an acknowledgement to those who contributed. Thanks goes out to all those who donated, purchased membership plans, or helped get the word out to encourage others to do the same. You guys took the burden off my shoulders alone and I certainly appreciate it.

Over the years, a bunch of prizes have been given out, but this is the first time we've given away a gladius. I'm glad to be able to give it away and I hope the winner will be glad to win it!



I bought this this prize with what I had left of the contribution money, but a thanks must go out to Patrick Kelly for giving me a deal on it.



THE PRIZE:

Valiant Armoury Signature Edition Actium Roman Gladius

The Signature Edition Actium Gladius has a blade made of 1060 carbon steel. The hilt is made of dark stained wood. This example has been modified from the standard offering in that the white paint and varnish has been removed from the grip. Linseed oil was applied to make for a much more pleasing look. The matching scabbard is wood-cored with a leather exterior and brass accents. A leather baldric is also included.



This gladius was designed by Angus Trim and Christian Fletcher and licensed and produced by Valiant Armoury.

Approximate measurements (taken from the maker):
Overall length: 32.375"; Blade length: 25.1"; Weight: 2.3 pounds; Grip length: 3.75"


HOW TO ENTER:

Follow the instructions shown in this button:



If the button says you can click it to enter, that's all you have to do.

If it says something else, you can click it for further info. Make sure you're logged-in before you try to enter.



ELIGIBILITY:

You must be a registered member of myArmoury.com and have donated $10 US or more within 90 days of the contest's start date or be a current member of the Benefactors, Upgraded Members, or Premier Members usergroups.

GENEROSITY BRINGS OPPORTUNITY:

When the contest closes, the names of all the participants will be thrown into a hat. Every $10 contributed as part of a donation or as the cost of a membership plan will earn that participants a separate chance to win. This means that members who donated $10 to the site will have one (1) chance to win. Members who donated $50 to the site will have five (5) chances to win. Members who donated $100 to the site will have ten (10) chances to win... and so on. The more donated, the better the odds of winning the prize!


Entrants must be made prior to contest close on Monday Dec 14, 2015 at Midnight PST. All participants will be entered into a drawing and the winning names will be randomly selected later that same day.

Thanks goes out to everybody who has given to this site. Good luck to everyone!!

A really nice prize I would certainly enjoy winning it, but contrary to my best selfish interests I encourage all eligible people to join the contest, even if it reduced my odds of winning ....... what would be the fun if it's too easy. Wink Big Grin Cool

I already won a prize some years back and I would feel " ALMOST GUILTY " winning again if eligible people didn't participate.

I'm certainly going to check on my odds of winning often, what about you ? . Wink

You can easily give up your freedom. You have to fight hard to get it back!

Glad to see the lights still on. Happy

I can't spend as much time as I'd like, but I'm glad to continue to support this community. Thanks for the opportunity to check in from time to time.

Nice touch with the "view your chances" button Nathan. Happy

My chances were 0, until I realized my membership had lapsed. Eek!

Now they're looking pretty good at this point, but I'd prefer if they weren't. Wink

Thanks to everyone who is eligible for this contest. That means that you've contributed to the site and that's more important to me now than ever. Thank you for that.

There's still a lot of you who are eligible but have not entered. Why not? You might win a sword.

Follow the instructions shown in this button:



If the button says you can click it to enter, that's all you have to do.

THERE ARE STILL 50 ELIGIBLE PEOPLE WHO HAVE NOT ENTERED

This isn't too alarming because not everyone wants to win the prize... but some of you probably do and just haven't remembered to actually enter the contest. This is your reminder.

Contributing does not automatically enter you into the contest.
