Decided this is something interesting for me to do this winter. Hope I'm not breaking any rules by posting this here.

Up Your Bench Contest!!! Up-your-bench723
www.UpYourBench.org

Two main prize categories, best or most interesting or unique soldering set-up and a lets see your workbench category.
Will run from mid December till the end of February. I'll announce the winners in March and post the winning photos and comments.

If this one goes well, I'll plan on running a couple each year relating to soldering, test equipment, and electronics workbenches.
I'll announce on the site when final entry details and entry forms are available. Still a couple of weeks and room for a few more prizes.
Open to residents of the U.S. and Canada.

I am looking forward to it. I have it as my home page so I will remember it. I like seeing other workshops because I might get ideas to make mine better. I will look forward to entering mine.

Ken, The workbench category will have many angles. It could be a creative use of space, strangest location, best use of storage, or many other aspects. I will probably even award a prize for most pathetic... Think of something. It may be a great way you have to store test leads. If nothing else, every entry gets an even shot at winning the Fluke 87V. I plan on listing a whole bunch of ideas when the contest starts. If anyone has any suggestions feel free to chime in here and post your ideas. Besides, what's wrong with old Weller soldering guns? My soldering gun collection

All the details will be laid out and entry instructions made available at the start of the contest. Should be about the second week of December. Contest will run through February. Winners will be posted in March.

I plan on posting a few entries as the contest goes along and will post the finalists about 10 days before the winners are announced. There also might be a prize for which of the finalists wins a public vote but I have to figure out how to do that without allowing duplicate voting.

The random drawing for the grand prize will be selected by a random number generator choosing entry numbers equal to the number of prizes available and my dog Gidget will select the top winner of the Fluke from those. I got that one all figured out. Might even put that one on video for everyone.

Also, If anyone is a member of any other electronic related forums feel free to post a link to the contest (UpYourBench.org) if it's not against their rules. I'm a member of about 4 but I know there are several others. ARF moderators have to discuss posting it there due to the no advertising rules so I'm waiting for their decision.

Edited - Daily contests seem to work much better in the Facebook groups.
Two weeks to go before the start of the contest.

Thanks to Steve Johnson for Helping foster interest in work bench and soldering stations. Kudos!

After I posted that Picture I got a friend in Oregon to agree to help me rebuild my bench area, when He comes up to visit, I will restructure my entire radio room. Within a month I hope!

I will take a picture of my new Man Cave and post when done.
