US and Canada Contests

I'm fed up I cant enter some contests like the 30-second video contest just because I'm not resident of the US nor Canada. I live in Spain, and when I see a contest I like, it says its only for US and Canada residents. I understand that its easier for Instructables to send the price withing America, but the sending taxes are not so high for them to be a reason of not sending the price. While I was reading the contest rules for the 30-second video I had ideas for 4 different entries. But I'm not going to bother doing them if I'm going to be thrown out of the contest the first day because of my nationality. I think contests should be something international, where everyone could win. That is the spirit of this new era, the internet era. With sites as this one, youtube, facebook, one can really feel as part of the international comunity, where every one, no matter age or race, can be someone. But of course, this "feeling"· of being part of something bigger end by the moment one reads "This contest is limited to legal residents of the United States and Canada, age 18 or older at the time of entry." (I understand the age problem for legal reasons). So, I ask to the team of Instructables to be considerant and to think of all the people living outside the US and Canada that could have a good idea or ideas for any kind of contest. Thanks for all Juanviperea.

Sourcing Components in Canada

First post, while everything's feeling all shiny and new. I was wondering if anyone knows the best place for sourcing electronic components (basic stuff like resistors, capacitors, relays, basic counting chips, motors all that good stuff to instructable with) in Canada (Ontario preferably). I used to use Rapid Electronics in England (www.rapidelectronics.co.uk) and have never found anything to match (in price or quality). All / Any suggestions welcome. Look out for a couple of instructables coming later in the month!

Canada Amateur Model Rocketry?

I've recently been looking into model rocketry, and was excited at the prospect of making and testing my own small sugar rocket motors. I've done quite a bit of research, and have discovered that many of the oxidizers i would need to use are not available in Canada (ex. KNO3, ammonium nitrate etc...). The only option I discovered was to synthesize KClO3, which I'm not interested in considering how dangerous and unstable it seems to be. I was wondering if any fellow Canadians have found anything that can be used as a substitute/any way for me to pursue this as a hobby without buying motors pre-made, which I'm not interested in. Any help is appreciated.

Help wanted in the UK: Dealing with SNOW

Hello there all, As you might be aware, us here in the UK are having a fair amount of snow, which as you might also be aware, causes our country to slowly collapse... Since those of you who live in Canada and northern states of the USA are quite a bit more used to the snow, I wondered if the collective genius of Instructables could give us some tips on dealing with snow... Things which'd be interesting to know about: -Footwear -Driving -Clothing -Shovelling I think you get the picture. Cheers!

Is there anywhere cheap in southern ontario to buy Acrylic sheets thats not home depot or things like that?

As the title says I'm looking for a place or a store to get some sheets for a few projects from here and I don't want to spend that much for just a couple pieces. Is there anyone on here from southern ontario that has had the same problem, and potentially with a solution? :)
