Long time member, first time forum poster here. This discussion was brought about by your recent post on Facebook for your Thanks-giveaway Spectacular noted here:https://www.homebrewersassociation.org/thanks-giveaway-spectacular/
Some great prizes there. Unfortunately, they are only available to those who are signing up or renewing their subscriptions. Those of us who have been faithfully paying our dues yearly are left with nothing. I also see from time to time other freebies for signing up/renewing like free hops or free books but again the existing members are left out.
The point I'm trying to make here is why isn't there giveaways/freebies for existing members? Heck, even the Homebrewtalk.com forums have frequent giveaways for even non-paying members. All I'm saying is I'm sure you guys get a ton of schwag and it would be awesome if you were to give some of it away to us existing members.
Sorry, just venting some steam here. Thanks for listening.
Edit: Just saw the rules here: https://www.homebrewersassociation.org/thanks-giveaway-rules/
The giveaway is open to everyone. Sorry for jumping to conclusions.
