    Wow! Great stuff. Thanks Scot and everyone! You're *almost* coming up with so many prizes I feel like we [the hikers] are benefiting more than the MWO! Really appreciate all the hard work into organizing this!

    Maybe Scot could confirm the above here on the forum.
    Simply registering isn't good enough for a goodie bag. I thought you had to be one of the first 250 to raise $100.

    I may be wrong, but why chance it.

    Default Goodie Bags, Prizes, etc.

    Hi everyone,

    Sounds like a little clarification is needed... It's all spelled out on our STP prize page, but here's the short version:

    -- To participate, you need to raise at least $100.
    -- Goodie bags are guaranteed for the first 250 people to reach the $100 fundraising mark and qualify to participate in STP.
    -- Those bags are worth well over $110 each, and include a long sleeve event t-shirt, Camelbak Hydration System, etc.
    -- If we have over 250 hikers, the bags will be gone, but we'll definitely make more t-shirts and order up more turkey.
    -- Everyone who participates as a hiker and attends the post-party will be entered into the door prize drawings
    -- I've mentioned the prize structure before and I encourage you to follow the link above for details.

    Hopefully this helps-- shoot me a PM if you have specific questions.

    Thanks,
    Scot

    Mary,

    Congratulations! Please send in what you've raised so we can reserve a goodie bag for you and add your name to all the prize drawings, including the Subaru drawing.

    Mail to:
    Seek the Peak
    c/o Mount Washington Observatory
    P.O. Box 2310
    North Conway, NH 03860

    My hunch is that there are quite a few folks out there that have done their fundraising offline... Either way, online or otherwise, we love it!

    Thanks for your efforts-- we all truly appreciate it.

    yeah its pretty exciting....i didnt realize that you had to send the registration money early for the goodie bags....last year when we registered at the bar( i cant remember the name) we got our bags when we turned in our money....maybe ill call and pay the 100.00 for our registrations....heres a question for someone....ive convinced my parents to come up with us for the weekend and take a van to the top of the mountain (theyre in their 80's so for them to stand on the mountain top would be a cool thing i think)....if we were willing to pay would they be able to attend the meal/get together after the hike?....it would just be a cool thing for them to see and be a part of if possible....
