willie has 3/2 boxes of water bottles - enough for up to 100+ 'door' prizes

I would respectfully disagree with Laura on this point -- I think a small
prize for entering could be an enticement to try biking to work. My
suggestion was for something like an "2006 -- I biked to work" t-shirt,
and I can see being proud to own one of those.
What is our inventory of water bottles? I think Willie has a box,
as do I, so perhaps those could be used as a small prize as well
I can see that having observed the melee at Freebirds that there would
be concern about people cheating the system, but I really do not think
that would be an issue in the type of contest we were proposing. It
would be easy to request a contact number for someone at the office/company
to confirm the participation.
However, I do think the person in charge of the project should be allowed
to make the decisions, and should also be heaped with appreciation.
Having expressed my opinion I am planning on quieting down now and being
really really grateful to Laura for taking on the project. ;)
