MilesCity.com has launched it's first contest!!!

The rules are simple -- the person who submits the most "quality" messages to the MilesCity.com Discussion Forums during the month of February 2001 will win the scanner.

So go for it! Think up a good message and post it. Right now no one is in the lead yet and the scanner is in it's shrinkwrap waiting for a home.

Regards, Larry
MilesCity.com Webmaster

Man, I love this contest stuff. I write one of two things and I win a scanner. Milescity.com, how about an Apple Cube for next month's prize? -- although I could use a riding lawn mower.

Anyway, thanks!

See, good things do happen at MilesCity.com! Although for the next contest I was thinking more along the lines of a jar of Tang and a pair of garden snips.

Hey, hey, hey. I got my scanner -- a beautiful Agfa SnapScan Touch. Even with an orange handle to go with the iBook. It works great. Many thanks milescity.com.

Orange Handles? ROTFLMAO! Larry! I want orange handles!!!! How come mine's so stark and plain and--wait--it's a PC.

'Was the first time anything ever got "hot-plugged" into Frankenputer. Sorry, no pictures of "Bwahahahaha! It's alive! It's alive!"

SWMBO's got some choice words for you about my new toy that consumes all my attention, but at least *I* thank you anyhow.

Dear Larry:
Just what no-prize do I get for all that information I submit on my relative, William Frederick Schmalsle? He was
a Buffalo hunter, Indian guide, Scout, and Courier to Lieutenant Baldwin and General Miles. All were involved in the
Red River Wars and the rescue of the German sisters. I have a very thick 3-ringed notebook on Schmalsle and I am
starting another notebook. There is a rare blue picture of Schmalsle in a Texas museum, I think it is a tintype. Now
how about a website on Schmalsle? Or how about a prize for information submitted on your genealogy site? Just
don't limit prizes to General Discussion. Check your town history for all that Schmalsle information.
Sincerely,
Ellen Kay Hillemann/Compton
