We would like to introduce a great new opportunity for the LawnSite Community - A Monthly Give Away. Each month one of the sponsors or participating companies at the site will provide something of their choice for the community.

In order to be eligible for the contest, you must respond to a specific thread started by the administrators at the site. By responding to the thread, a ticket with your name will go into "a hat". There will be only one response per member and there will be one winner each month. We also ask that no other comments be made about another member's response. ONE POST PER MEMBER.

WE CHAPPS, a long time sponsor of the site, will be donating this month's LawnSite Give Away. WE CHAPPS designs and manufactures quality commercial landscaper and equipment accessories. They offer the Green Industry various products to answer many of the problems professionals in this industry face. Product Lines include: Mesh Debris Bags, String Trimmer Chapps, Equipment Covers, Chemical Spray wear, UL Chainsaw Gear, Hedge Trimmer Chapps, Neck/Ear Sun Protection, OEM Brand Name Mesh Bags and Equipment Covers, Custom Print Mesh Mower Bags, Company T-shirts and much more.

For this month's LS Give Away, W.E. Chapps is offering your choice of two packages. Their newest product: The Grass Handler - a true OCDC-like mulcher that attaches on most Walk-Behind, Zero Turn, Riding and Stand-On Mowers. It has a special LawnSite retail price of $299.95. Or your choice of any of the other products they offer totaling $299.95. See photos and read more about The Grass Handler mulcher at www.wechapps.com/home/Misc_Chapps/G...dler___bag.html or visit www.wechapps.com . to see all of the other professional products that they offer.

Remember, in order to have a chance to win, you must respond to the Give Away Thread started by the administration. Also, you can only enter once, no exceptions. If you have any questions, please email sean@lawnsite.com.

The following is the question you must answer in order to be elligible to win:

If you were given $50,000 cash that you did not have to pay back and you had one week to spend this money on your business only, how would you spend the money?

Please remember, one post per member, and do not comment on how others answer this question!

Posted by Sponsor W.E. Chapps one week after the start of the contest:

I would buy more stock in my Corporation and use the money as capital for future growth.

I would spend it all on my company stock so I could use it as capital over a period of years.
Since this is not the answer you are looking for here is an alternative-New Chevy 3500 dump truck.
