I've always wanted to do one but it came about because of Rob Sanders. He's a superstar volunteer!

Thanks Bobi!

I read through the guidelines and saw that you have to be a member.  :-\ I'm sorta moving this weekend and I can't afford to fork over the fee. Oh well. C'est la vie. Maybe next time. Chicken House is open until November. Maybe I'll enter that!

Just a reminder that the contest ends soon. One of the prizes is a scholarship to one of our conferences!
