Default Pull-Tab Contest Win a Silver Coin

Earlier this year I failed as a father to my little guy (my avatar).

You see, his school was doing a class by class project. The winning class got a pizza party and bragging rights for the rest of the school year.

What was the project?

What class can bring in the most pull-tabs!!!!

Right away my little treasure hunter knows daddy (me) scraps all the metal I (WE) find.

He was sure I(we) had enough from last year to win it for him and his kindergarten class.

But I didn't. So I plan on fixing that for next year's school project. It has turned into an annual event.

So here's the contest for EVERYBODY to win.

Save your pull-tabs. Make me a nice pile. Ship them to me. Then I will send you a silver coin in return. The pull-tabs will eventually be given to the Ronald McDonald House.

I don't want to let him down again.

Don't worry about dirty pull-tabs. I will tumble them if I have to.

If you already have a pile, PM me for my address.

Any questions please add PM me.

I will update this thread with pictures whenever I get a package. I look forward to how many I will get.

*****PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT I GET THESE BEFORE CHRISTMAS*****

Also, at the end of this contest, I will send out bonus prizes.

Hat, t-shirts, and more coins.

I am also looking forward to stories of members digging nickel low-tones because of this contest and finding GOLD.

I still dig the low-tones. I've been skunked by gold for a good year and a half.

This is a fantastic idea. I will be saving every single pull tab I find. Your little guy should have no problem winning this year with all of FMDF behind you. When is the deadline for us to send it to you? I'd hate for you to be getting pull tabs 3 months after the school contest is over haha.

Hey Buddy, do you only want the modern pull-tabs, or will beaver-tails work too? Inquiring minds, and busy diggers want to know. LOL

I don't see a deadline for this until around Christmas break.

I'll announce it when I find an exact "due-by" date.
