    Lightbulb Club Polk Karma (Polk Audio Sign)

    Ok. I frequent another forum that is full of folks who are nearly as fanatical about SIGs as we all are about Polk and audio. It's very simmilar to our forum here. A close knit community, family oriented, and overall a pretty cool place to hang out.

    One thing I noticed that they do, that I've never seen anywhere else is KARMA. Basically Karma is this: FREE STUFF

    Free stuff? Nothing is free you say?

    Over at the other forum (it's firearm related), I've almost seen it all. Triggers, magazines, ammo, sights, even some fine leather holsters... all offered up as a prize for a DRAWING for forum members.

    Here is how it works:

    You make a post offering the item with "Karma" in the title.
    You must set a time for the drawing. 24 hours, 48 hours, etc.
    Those who want to participate, say something. "I'm in" "Add me please" whatever.
    The drawing is made (paper names in a hat, however you want to do it, just be FAIR)
    Item is shipped. Thats it.

    I've seen how this has helped maintain a good atmosphere and sense of community at that forum, so why not do it here?

    MY rules to enter THIS karma: (you can change these for your karma offering if you wish):
    You must own Polk speakers! (sorry Sid)
    You must have 50 posts.
    Reply HERE to enter (NOT IN MY PM BOX!). The drawing will take place on Sunday April 3rd. You have until NOON CENTRAL TIME to enter. I will post pics of the drawing (gonna use my SIG hat!)

    So here goes. The first Club Polk KARMA.

    One CLASSIC Polk Audio sign. Clear, with white vinyl lettering and the CLASSIC red Polk Audio heart. This sign came directly from Polk Audio headquarters and was given to me by our beloved Micah a couple of years ago. It's in GREAT condition, and is even featured on my wall in a few of the pictures from the very first Polkster gathering.



    Good luck!

    Why you gotta own Polk speakers to participate? With that rule, you'll cut out several wonderful gents such as Sid (and me, of course) who contribute significantly to the forum to make it as great as you say it is. Hell, Sid knows more about Polk speakers than most folks on the forum, and all of us non-Polk owners are quick to highly recommend Polk speakers based on our own experiences. We simply went in a different direction to experiment with other gear, which is what this hobby is all about.

    BTW Phuz, can you give the link to the SIG forum? I own one!!!:D

    I'm in too. I still have one set of Polk speakers(nothing to drive them with, but I still have them).

    Yes, free stuff is good. If I have anything of value laying around, I'll do this too.

    Do dirty baby diapers have any value?

    Why would you want a Polk Audio sign, if you don't own Polk speakers? That was just my rule for THIS drawing. Anyone else can make up their own rules.
    Oh, you make your own rules. Got it. Cool. And to answer your question re: why I would want a Polk sign -- cuz it's free!!

    Thanks for the Sig link. Got a 2340 and luvin' it.

    Excellent idea!

    Count me in. (5 Polk Speakers) I am sure that I would be the only one in NWT with a sign like that. Everyone else has a caribou.

    The NWT is one of the most sparsely populated places on earth
    It has a total area of 3,426,320 square kilometers
    The population is 65,400
    The population density is 0.02 people per square kilometer
    Represents 34% of Canada's total land mass
    Contains 0.22% of Canada's total population has 52.4 square kilometers per person
    There are 1,310,000 caribou in the NWT and 2.6 kilometers per caribou!
