Another year has gone by and it is time for our annual Christmas Contest!  This year I'm calling it the Elf on a shelf contest. There are ten hidden elves. You may have to stray a bit from the Forestry Forum to find some of them, but most of them will be found quite readily by just looking around. I'm giving you all the tools and clues to find them in this post, so think and keep your eyes open! I'm hoping that this will get some of you to look around the forum and sponsors a bit and see what you discover rather than just heading for the whatcha sawing thread  and no where else. :D  I've made this contest so that you won't have to use the search function over and over to get your answers as that is very hard on the forum server.

What you do:  Find the ten elves. Each elf has a letter and a number. The letter is to help form a word. The number tells you where that letter is in that word.  Once you have the word, you use it to complete this address:

Code: [Select]
http://forestryforum.com/board/index.php?action=REPLACE WITH YOUR 10 letter WORD   (all small letters no caps!)When you successfully complete the address you will be taken to a success page where you will find a secret phrase and a link to submit that phrase and your entry.   Prizes will be drawn sometime Christmas day from all the successful entries. Contest closes Midnight, my time, Christmas Eve.
Please make sure to thank the following for our prizes!
@thecfarm has donated a forestryforum hat of your choice. winner: @Wallydawg 

@doc henderson has donated a Laser engraving. You will work out with him a photo and size. THEY ARE AWESOME! winner: @mroldstyle 

Logrite has donated a 48" Cant Hook or peavey winner: @davch00 
Blue Creeper has donated a value pack and oil can winner: @stevegee58 
Ritelegco has donated a set of 4 sexy single legs for your slab or table. winner: @jeeper9574 

Thanks Kevin and Tammy!

So, hopefully I am not forgetting anything!

MERRY CHRISTMAS

SO much for going to bed early tonight! :D I (we) had a lot of fun with this last year. This should be interesting. Thanks Jeff and Tammy.

Need some help? Might help to keep searching. Even digging around in your tool box might help. Maybe even sawing on your woodmizer might help some. Maybe a check up with the Doc will not do any harm. Going to the farm will make you think straight.

Done! 

Another fun one, Jeff. Easier this year. We should end up with a lot more contestants this year. Youre going to need a bigger prize wheel. 

:christmas: Jeff and Tammy and all the good members of the Forestry Forum.

I got all but one letter. I didn't have numbers on a couple of them. What I thought was the word from what I have didn't work
I believe in the hereafter, because every time I take two steps into the tool crib to get something I wonder " what did I come in here after"

you guys are killing me, this is what happened last year. Not easy for me, I have no idea where you are looking. I got 4 letters, but only 2 with numbers. Arrgghhh!

Not sure why, but on my PC (using Chrome) some of the elves didn't show up both the number and letter correctly.  On the iPad (using Chrome) everything was ok (using the full site).  If you're having trouble with the letters or numbers it could be a similar issue.  Don't know if it's a pc thing, or Chrome thing.  Or maybe it's just Jeff messin' with us.  Just FYI

I never found all the devishly hidden dwarfs, but after four letters I made a lucky guess.

Here's a big hint though:  It's got nothing to do with grits!  And there's far fewer of them down here than up there.  

(Not much of hint really, but somewhat of a hint.  Wouldn't want to spoil the fun.)

I think I'm probably using the right word then. Maybe I'm replacing it in the wrong place

It goes after the = sign. Everything thats after the equal sign needs be deleted. Only the mystery word goes after the equal sign.

OK, done. Thanks Jeff and your cohorts for another challenge. It was NOT easier than last year, but I am getting used to your 'odd quirks' a bit more and worked my way through it a little faster this year. Thank you for a fine contest and big thanks to all the prize sponsors. I think the contest is fun enough on it's own, but the prizes are a bonus. I enjoy listening to the chatter afterwards about the prizes and how they go to good homes that use and enjoy them.
 At least I can get to bed at a reasonable hour tonight. Last year was a long one for me and I paid for it the next day. :D

Another great contest by Jeff. Thank you again. I struggled yesterday, but came in with a fresh mind this morning and got it pretty quick. 

Merry Christmas to all and thank you to all the sponsors for some great prizes.

I actually saw one this morning before you announced the contest and I thought what in the world is that guy doing with that elf there? 
Good times.

That's one of the four I've found!

Not much luck with it this year!
