I thought I saw it posted that this year's win comes with some type of prize?
Maybe it was the 'creek water' had me seeing things....  ???

Yeah think some companys have been paying notice and contributing to this honor perhaps. Back in the day a pat on the back and the unity of the addiction was all that was needed , cool to see the added gratuities IMO

I saw somebody's lament about less 1% of the  members vote.  I wonder why  that is?

Probably wrong, someone double check me, but last I saw there were 99? votes. GTA has 20430 members so if I managed to do it right
it's actually something like 1/2 of 1% of the members who actually voted.

You'd have to go back and actually check prior years but I think it's been pretty much that way since it all started. Why? Not a clue and you'd
have to run a poll asking why members chose not to.

Membership does not equate to activity or participation.
Many folks join just to see what all the buzz is about.
Many join looking for specific information and once they find it, or don't, they're out.
Much of the traffic on the GTA, sadly, is in the Back Room gates with topics that have nothing to do with airguns....
Some don't appreciate that and 'if you don't like it don't look' leaves a bad taste in the mouth.
But, if traffic numbers are important to sponsors and bragging rights, the 'Back Room' has a huge impact.
This past couple years have had adverse affects on lots of folks. For many just providing the basics for themselves or family has put the hobby type stuff on the back burner. "We got our own things to worry about".
You want to see these facts in real time? Have a raffle. I remember our raffles only attracting 500 members. You would think that a $5 ticket to win a $1500 item would attract more than 500 of the 16000 membership.
And finally... yes, the voting turnout this year mirrors that of the past since it began.

Wow, thank you!  I am honored and humbled to be included among such fine people, many of whom I have learned from along the way.  Thank you to everyone who voted, I do mean everyone.  All the guys nominated are fantastic contributors...Hector, Scott, John, and Bill.  They help foster a welcoming community and sharing of knowledge that makes GTA such a great place to be.
