Fighting Load Contest Reminder

Last year we had an Everyday Carry contest.This year we are doing Fighting Load's. Fitting in with my overall tiered gear philosophy this is going to expand beyond the obvious war belts, chest rigs, plate carriers, duty belts, etc all to include  the level 2.5 sustainment of assault packs, get home bags and other smaller than a full ruck type setups to include the tactical man purse. I am not specifying that you must (or cannot) have guns in the picture. Everybody likes guns and talking about guns but if you do not want to include them that is fine too.

Prizes are as follows:
1st: Blackhawk 3 day Assault Pack ($90) AND a $50 gift certificate from LuckyGunner.com ($50 value) plus 2 copies of The Reluctant Partisan by John Mosby.
2nd: HERC stove from Titan Ready Water ($169 value) plus The Reluctant Partisan by John Mosby.
Note: Prizes 1 and 2 are really closely matched. As such the overall winner can pick the Lucky Gunner stuff OR the HERC. 2nd place gets what is left. 2 books will go to #1 and 1 book to #2.
3rd Place: 3 Sport Berkey Water Bottles donated by LPC Survival ($69 value)
4th Place:  A Lifestraw donated by Camping Survival ($20 value)
5th Place: A pair of Gyver Gear survival tin's
6th Place: The Western Front (hardcopy) or 3x e books by Archer Garrett.
Wildcard: This one goes to whoever I want to give it to for whatever reason I feel like. It will be a grab bag donated by yours truly. The exact makeup is TBD depending on what I have lying around  and may include books, gear, medical stuff or even a couple silver dimes. ($30+  value).

For a good example of a post reference my EDC Contest entry or Max's  Battle Belt discussion. Those should give you a good idea what type of thing I'm looking for. I will probably do a full fighting load post some time after the new year.

The contest is going to run from today 16 December to 1 February. Voting will start after the last entry is shown on the blog. Voting will run for about a week and will decide the winner's who get the prizes.

Submissions will be made via my blog email theotherryan@yahoo.com. You can do the text in am email or as an attachment. For the picture I'm not going to specify exactly what format or such but if my standard computer can't open it then I'll politely let you know it didn't work.

Disclaimer: As far as this contest is concerned I am a totalitarian dictator albeit a benevolent one. I reserve the right to remove, add or change prizes, edit entries, reject entries, scrap the results of voting or otherwise do whatever I want at any time with no advance notice. I will also retain rights to use all entries on the blog or in other way's. While I'm a reasonable guy and will listen to your concerns there is no appeals or arbitration process. Whatever I say goes so if you don't like it then don't play.

There are a lot of great prizes on the line so hurry up and get your entry in!!!
