You might consider some type of awards to go along with each for incentive. We have a year to figure it out ...

Currently, I am looking to become a Golden Eagle, just got to get the okay from the boss. Afterwards, I wouldn't mind chipping in ...

Is BBC a non-profit? I used to be a professional fund raiser in a previous life, and we could probably get somethings donated.

Randell,
Do you mind my asking where the photo was taken from?  Not seen it before.

Not at all.  It was taken from the Boquillas Canyon Rim South of the Marufo Vega trail.

I just bought a hardback, with dust jacket, 1973 ed. of Warnock's "Wildflowers of the Guadalupe Mtns and Sand Dune Country."  Its way out of print and a quick google shows value of $30-150.  I didn't pay that for it....heh.   It's my second copy so I'll donate it for the contest or for an auction to benefit the website.  Feel free to PM me and we can work something out.  I can't give $ but at least I can contribute something of value.   Yo.

This post seems to have gotten lost.  Since no one seemed to have bid on this book, I will start the bidding at $30.00.  Anyone else want to bid?
