Furniture and Sailing: $75 Prize

For the first time ever on Proper Course there is something of real value here. To thank all of my loyal readers for their tremendous support of and participation in our topic of the week, Furniture and Sailing, today I am announcing a giveaway of a gift certificate worth $75... and YOU could win it.

But first let me suggest to anyone who is having difficulty finding a suitable table to try out the ideas in yesterday's post on How to Learn to Sail on Your Dining Table that you should seriously consider buying a drop leaf table. When you are not using it for learning to sail you can fold down the leaves and it will take up hardly any space. And if you do decide at some future date to convert your table into a sailing vessel, I think a drop leaf table would provide some interesting design opportunities. Did someone say "twin canting keels"?

Now, back to the $75 giveaway. Thanks to the generosity of CSN Stores who, just by coincidence, happen to be the vendor of those drop leaf tables at the link above, I have a $75 gift certificate to give away to one of my lucky readers. But you don't have to spend it on a drop leaf table. You can use it for any of the gazillion items available from the 200+ online CSN Stores. Check them out. You are sure to find something you need there. (Or failing that you could put your 75 bucks towards buying your significant other a waterbed for Xmas.)

Entering for the giveaway is simple. First, you have to be a follower of this blog. If you are not already a follower, go over there >>>>> to the top of the sidebar and sign up immediately. Once you are a follower, leave a one-word comment to this post that best describes what you think of this blog. Awesome? Brilliant? Grippy? Superstantial? Don't hold back. Tell me what you really think.

Helpful hint: you are not going to win if you leave an anonymous comment.

This contest is open to entrants in USA and Canada only. Sorry, CSN don't ship to other countries. Submit your comment by 10:00pm (EST) on Sunday, October 31, 2010. The winner will be drawn at random and announced shortly after that on this blog.
Only one comment allowed per person.

This contest is now closed, and the post is closed to further comments. Winner will be announced shortly.
