    The Floor Pro Community and Shank Floor Tools
    is giving away a new tool every day in May 2011
    to celebrate TFP's 5th anniversary.

    May 2011 marks five years online for The Floor Pro Community. Helping consumers, do-it-yourselfers and flooring professionals from around the world has been our focus since May 2006. We have grown to almost 4,500 members, posted over 9,000 topics and brought dedicated flooring professionals together from every segment of the floorcovering industry. Together with consumers who need advice on the best flooring for their needs and the home handyman and handywoman who want guidance on doing their projects the right way, we have become the premier flooring website on the Net.

    Helping us celebrate our 5 years is Shank Floor Tools and owner David Shasnk. David is an inventor and creator of flooring tools for the pro and the do-it-yourselfer. He has offered us a chance to give away a tool for every day of May. And together, we have come up with an easy way for you to be the winner of one of these great tools.

    Who can win:

    Any registered member of The Floor Pro Community, pro or not a pro. If you are not a member now, registration is free and easy. You cannot win if you are not a member. Staff and their families are not eligible to win public contests.

    How you can win:

    Post flooring related messages for all to see. You can do that by starting a new topic or replying to an existing topic (forum rules apply - don't post to topics older than 30 days). Only posts in public, flooring related forums apply. Posts made in private forums or off-topic forums do not count toward eligibility for a tool.

    How the winner is selected:

    Each daily winner is selected from all members who posted on the forums that day. A random number has already been selected by David Shasnk, for each of the days in May. The member ID number (each registered member has a unique ID number) that comes closest to matching that preselected number will be the winner for that day. The winner each day must have posted that day. And the winner can not win more than one prize during this month long give-away. All winners will be announced on the last day of May - there will be 30 winners, beginning on May 1 and ending on May 30, with the last day of the month reserved for tallying and making the announcement.

    The Tools:
    • 10 Multi-creasers
    • 10 Wall Trimmer Plates
    • 5 Air-ez
    • 5 Stand-up Trowels

    The contest begins at midnight, May 1, 2011 and ends midnight, May 30, 2011. All times are Pacific Time. Good luck to all and thank you very much to David Shasnk and Shank Floor Tools.

    All tools will be shipped from Shank Floor Tools. David Shasnk is solely responsible for providing and shipping all contest prizes. Winners names and addresses will be sent to David Shasnk so that the tools can be shipped out as soon as possible. If the winner does not provide the shipping information, the tool will be forfeited. There will be no alternate winners and winners may not designate an alternate recipient.

    Forget it. I don't have any questions, I guess. :) My eyes were all bleary from just waking up. I couldn't see the fine print.

    After tallying all the posts for May 1, 2011, we have a winner. This member joined us late last year. Thank you for all the activity today (well, I guess it was yesterday now).

    All winners names will be announced on the last day of this month. Only one winner per day and no winner can win again. Good luck. There are 29 more prizes to win. Rules are in the first post of this topic.

    Another active day on the forums and Shank Floor Tools is providing yet another tool to one of our members. This time the winner is a charter member and a flooring professional with many years experience. Maybe the old dog can learn a few new tricks with his new tool.

    Winners names won't be announced until the last day of the month, so keep posting. Remember, the only posts that count for the contest are those made in the public, flooring related forums. It's great to see all the posting, teaching, learning and camaraderie in the private, pros only forums, but if you want to win a tool, you gotta post public too. :yesss:

    Oh yeah, non-pros, do-it-yourselfers and consumers can win too.
