We'll accept till January 4, 2009.

"We'll announce the winners in our e-mail campaign on January 6, 2009."

Here's how it works: The story teller should go to http:///http://www.thecontractorsside.com, Tell the story, Cut and paste it to the company e-mail address: thecontractorsside@yahoo.com, and he or she is entered. This guarantees anonymity if desired.

Even if it happened years ago, it counts. If it happened to somebody else, it counts. It'll post on a blog site to be announced in the upcoming e-mail, and anyone can look up other stories up for free on: http:///http://www.thecontractorsside.com

"Believe me, it'll be enlightening. Everybody's got a story, and a lot of them are on the site." according to Dodson.

"The economy is not in the tank," Dodson said, "but it isn't easy. Building trades people have to get sharp, use every business tool available, but we have to remember that effort alone, ambition alone won't cut it, nor will plain stubbornness. We have to remember that desperation does not breed business. A light touch builds confidence in the business."

Does this bounty hunt concern only with clients and contractors?

Dodson grinned. "Not at all. This bounty hunt is for everybody in the trade from design phase like architects and engineers through inspectors on to suppliers, even laborers"

"Some of the funniest guys I know clear trenches for a living."

thecontractorsside.com plans two more bounty hunts of different subjects in the first quarter of 2009.
