  • 2009 "Luck of the Draw" Video Contest

    Is there a new Steven Spielberg out there? Let's find out by submitting your entry to the 2009 RIDGID "Luck of the Draw" Video Contest!

    We are calling it the "Luck of the Draw" Video Contest because you have to incorporate two of the three items from a random item generator. To get more details and to sign up, go to www.RIDGIDVideo.com.

    Like we did last year, five finalists will be chosen by RIDGID employees and then posted to RIDGID.com for public voting. We will view the five videos and crown the winner on the last day of the 2009 RIDGID Round Up.

    Finalists will receive a free trip to Cleveland for the Round Up, two nights of hotel and $100 for expenses. The winner will receive $2500 of RIDGID tools of their choosing.

    We look forward to receiving your entries.

    Good Luck!

    Great idea on the random generator. I've signed up but now I have to figure out where to find a donkey and an F-18 Hornet.

                Hey no matter what...


                make sure all the videos get posted...that would be a thread on here that would get some serious mileage.


                Just tag it (Ridgid) and send it to youtube...that's a whole lot of advertising on the global view.

                  I’m afraid, under the official rules, only videos from US residents are eligible. Canadian promotion rules are extremely strict making it difficult to open our promotions up to our friends to the north. However, feel free to post a video if you have already made something as it will get play on the web for all to see!

                        Ok, my video is posted

                        It's not that hard, Charlie. Try using the Windows Movie Maker program that comes with Windows XP.

                        Once I figured it out, it went pretty smooth.

                          Well I emerged from video-HELL just under the wire by about 5-minutes before tonights deadline (11:59 PM EST). I cannot tell you how many problems I had or how many times my computers crashed over this. I started out with the software the camera came with, then went to Roxio9 and final to Ulead 11. At the end of my editing attempts all I had left was files which could no longer be read. With a mere 2-hours left we re-shot everything with the video feature of a point and shoot and used Windows Movie Maker to edit it.

                          The real items I ended up with from the random generator were a plunger and newspaper. I guess had I planned it better I could have had Rick reading the newspaper on the water closet while wearing his plunger hat.

                              Please you know I would never do anything to embarrass you. However, I did happen to add this still to my video.
