The plunge

On December 4, 2007, in news, by

For a split second I thought I was sent one of the toys from Toy Story but then I remembered they were binoculars.  Yesterday in the mail a package arrived.  Orange-ish and square with Partner plunge on the front.  Inside complete with a sbsc logo was a Viewfinder…

And hooked to it was a little attachment to urge me to go to with a link personalize for me.  Like Mark said, you can tell that they are taking the SBSC logo seriously.  Okay… so maybe a little bit light-seriously since they sent out a kids viewfinder with “newfangled” stereo views of the trip you’ll possibly win….

  • GRAND PRIZE: A trip that is definitely over the edge. The winning company will enjoy an exciting 4 day/3night rafting trip for 14 on the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon plus two nights in Las Vegas. (valued at $60,000).

  • Second Place Prize: an HP ProLiant DL380 Server (Provided by Hewlett Packard–$3000 value)

  • Third Place Prize: an HP ProLiant DL350 Server (Provided by Hewlett Packard–$2500 value)
    Second and Third place winners will receive Small Business Specialist jackets for their team members. (limit 10 jackets per winner)

  • Fourth and Fifth Place Prizes: one SMB Nation Fall Conference attendee pass for each winning organization. (Provided by SMB Nation – $1500 value each) The 2008 SMB Nation Fall Conference is scheduled for Oct. 4-6, 2008 at the Bell Harbor Conference Center in Seattle, WA

  • Harry indicated that the fourth and fifth prizes included airfare to Seattle (thus the total value amount).

    Take the Vista test drive.. (and after you do pick up a Vista security book to find out more about virtualzation and how when you save to c:\program files you really aren’t saving to c:\program files at all…..)

      Ours needed an immediate patch as they arrived broken. That is after we figured out what the heck they were.
