We're giving away a FREE Sawmill!
« on: December 04, 2009, 04:58:58 pm »
Cook's Saw is giving away a Brand New MP-32 Sawmill with an 8.5hp Kohler gas engine and 12ft. log cut.  Every order you place for 10 Cook's Super Sharp™ blades will get your name into the drawing.  If you order 50 Super Sharp blades then your name goes into the drawing 5 times.  The more you order the greater your chance will be for claiming a new sawmill!
See below for more details:

Cook's Saw 2010 Sawmill Giveaway Rules:

2.  There is no limit as to how many times your name is added into the drawing.  Example:  If you order 1,000 blades - 1,000/10 = 100 times your name is added to the drawing.
3.  One Grand Prize Winner will be determined by a random drawing conducted on or about July 10, 2010 at Cook’s Saw, Newton, Alabama.
The odds of winning will depend upon the number of entries.
4. The potential Grand Prize Winner will be notified within five days of the drawing.  If contact cannot be made within 10 days of the drawing or in the event that the potential Grand Prize Winner declines to accept the prize an alternate Grand Prize Winner will be chosen.
5.  The prize can be picked up from Cook’s Saw here in Newton, Alabama at no charge or it can be shipped at the expense of the Winner.  All local, State, or Federal taxes are the responsibility of the winner.
6.  The Grand Prize Winner will receive a brand new Cook’s MP-32 Sawmill with an 8.5hp Kohler Gas Engine and a 12ft. log cut.  Additional accessories and options can be purchased from Cook’s Saw if desired by the Winner.

Well, it seems like your not really giving away a sawmill - just selling chances to win one. You have to buy blades to be in the drawing so the only people who have a chance to win one all ready have a mill.

Wow, nice give away! I wish I had a sawmill that I needed to buy some blades for so I could get a chance at winning!  ;)

We realize we can't please everyone.
This is a way to give back to those who support us in a win-win fashion, and it guarantees that the mill will go to someone who truly is a sawyer.
We've given mills away in the past to just anyone and we may do this again in the future.

I got to say that don’t mind having a second mill or even a dozen. Good to see you giving back to your loyal customers.

I agree with the customer appreciation, but I suppose in all reality you are raffling off a mill.

Is this cold weather making people testy or what. Tim and the boys at Cook's are tops in my book. I am going to call in an order soon. When is the drawing?

You know, you don't have to have a sawmill to order a blade. As a teenager, I bought 4 nice hubcaps and didn't even own a car. Told mom that I needed a car to go with my hubcaps.  ;) It worked too, but it wasn't mom getting me the car, I bought it myself.

I've bought grinding wheels and such from Cook's and they are good people to do business with, so buy a blade or two, maybe you'll end up with a mill to go with them. :)

I buy from them myself. I don't want another mill right now though. Two is enough for the moment.

Heh.  The Mrs knows I want a sawmill very badly.  She'd be mighty darn suspicious though, if a bunch of blades showed up all of a sudden.  ;D  Seriously, I'd order but we're saving up for adoption.  Sure would be neat to see one of you guys win it.

Good luck, Joe!  And thanks to Cooks for running this giveaway!!

I see Joe found the date for the drawing.

There are some really good people on this forum and it would be great for one of you to win that sawmill. Especially since we will be doing an article on it for our catalog and one or two of the sawmill magazines out there will be running the story as well.  It would also bring some more publicity for the forum as well.
We hope you all the best.

I agree with the first part of your post Lee!
Cook's is not raffling off a mill! 
It doesn't cost any extra to get your name in the bucket! 
If you buy blades, your name goes in there automatically!
On the other hand, if it was a raffle, you would pay more than the cost of the blades to get your name in the bucket!

James,

I also appreciate that you are giving away a mill.  You certainly don’t have to do that, and it’s a nice way to get people to try your blades. 

I saw this promotion in your catalog some months ago and I will repeat the suggestion I made to the person I talked to on the phone. 

Don’t give away a mill.  Give away an edger. 

Virtually everyone who orders blades already owns a mill.  Many of us don’t own an edger.  There are probably some, like me, who do own an edger but would like a better one, like a Cooks. 

Think about this if you intend to repeat this promotion next year.

Loren,

Giving away an Edger is a great idea. Maybe in the near future that is something we will do.

BP,

Yes, time didn't allow for us to get the article put together on the winner of the MP-32 but look for it in our 2010 Issue 5 catalog towards the end of the year.
