Craftsman Tool contest: I can't find any details on it, did it start on Nov. 8th? Answered

I am unable to locate the details of the Craftsman Tool Contest
Enter any project using tools to win a $5,000 shop upgrade! Starts November 8th
That I got notice of awhile back.  Can anyone help?

Ok, found it.... Craftsman Tool Contest.... 


Wasn't that November 8, 2009? You actually posted a forum topic about it, but the URL now points to some unrelated question.

Nope, I was wrong about this. The original Craftsman Tools contests started 2 Dec 2008 (yep, two years ago), and closed in Jan 2009. I suspect Jeff's right about the vanishing contest...

Good catch! And it looks like there was almost a day's worth of discussion before it vanished...

Well, they just posted it on FACEBOOK today again.....so is it still live or not?

It's on the list as OPEN with a deadline of 19 December 2010. So I think that's, "Yes."

Yes, I agree. Now it appears just before I sign in here as a banner ad.

I know, it was in an Email from Robot, unless he made a MISTAKE ! A fairly recent email actually listing the current and "upcoming" contests, and that one said it started Nov. 8, right after the start of a few of the contests going on now.

Yes, I saw that too, it was for this year, I've been waiting for it since the Dremel contest is for US residents only. I found the email, it was sent on the 13 Oct:

Yep, that is the email I got.....

Hmmm, looks like it is scratched from the record. I think I had my peg game entered into the contest and the banner link is gone. Maybe when the Craftsman adverts that also took over the adspace was up, the programming wiped it all out?

Perhaps, with 8 (!!) contests currently running, they decided to hold off on it for now.

It would have been nice to know that, since I had planes for it ;-)

It was just a guess.

Planes, eh? The flying kind, or for removing thin slivers of wood? ;)

I was stressed on Monday....and today isn't much better :-) planed plans for it ;-)

You do know that the "rains in Spain fall manely on the plain".  Right?  

Of course. And "In Hertford, Hereford and Hampshire, hurricanes hardly ever happen."

Looks like you weren't crazy after all! ;)

So, you better have some awesome planes ready for us.
