    • Berkey Water Purification Systems
Our Berkey Survival Podcast contest/drawing for the month for April 2010!
(This contest has been approved by Jack.)

When disaster strikes, will you and your family have plenty of safe drinking water? If your one of the 13 winners, that problem might be taken care of (at least for a little while).

First, Here are the prizes:

(Just a side note, we can ship this to any California or Iowa Address as this is a prize and no money will be changing hands.)
We are giving away 3 Berkey Water Purification Systems to 3 different members, You can pick the system of your choice from this list:

Go Berkey Kit - http://directive21.com/go-berkey-kit.html
Berkey Light - http://directive21.com/berkey-light.html
Travel Berkey - http://directive21.com/travel-berkey.html

All systems will come brand new, with 2 black berkey elements.

We are also giving away 3 Sport Berkey Water Bottles to 10 different members. If you are one of the 10 chosen, you will receive 3 Sport Berkey's Free!

Sport Berkey's - http://directive21.com/accessories-sport-berkey.html

Some Specs on bottles:
Generic Sport Berkey® Portable Water Purifier bottle is the ideal personal protection traveling companion - featuring the IONIC ADSORPTION MICRO FILTRATION SYSTEM. The theory behind this innovation is simple. The bottle's filter is designed to remove and/or dramatically reduce a vast array of health-threatening contaminants from questionable sources of water, including remote lakes and streams, stagnant ponds and water supplies in foreign countries where regulations may be sub-standard at best.

I thought I would increase everyone elses chances of winning by entering.  ;D

Yeah, my luck is that bad. LOL

I once went to a Microsoft product demonstration, They had 12 door prizes and 13 people showed up,  Guess who was the only person to not win a door prize :).

So your luck is improving by the mere entrance of my name in this drawing.  

Good luck everyone.  

And Berkey guy....  You Rock!  Thanks for the opportunity.

Archer, maybe we'll cancel each other out and create a worm hole or some other space/time anomaly and we may actually have a chance to win!   :o

Consider me entered!

I think it's bullstuff that IA and CA laws can keep someone from there from winning.  Is there something we can do to see that they could be included as well?

I must have missed something. I just read back and saw where Iowa and CA can't win.  You'll have to cancel my IA entry.

I'm am curious though, why can't Iowa or CA win?  I don't have an issue with it, rules are rules and I can respect that.  I'm really just curious.

Thanks

Doc, if you win, I'd be happy to have it shipped here and forward it on to you on my dime.  I say 'nuts' to those rotten IA rules.

I really do appreciate the offer kc9eci.  However, circumventing the rules creates a semi ethical situation that I don't wish to impose on anyone other than myself.  (I'm only 25 miles from the Illinois border and could get a general delivery to a post office there as someone else posted above without involving anyone else.)  :D

I came with nothing, I made some people laugh, I leave with the knowledge I made some people laugh so I've gained something and still feel good about it and i'm ok with that.

I'll tell you what, leave me in the drawing, and if you draw my name, we can figure out something at that point.  (Maybe i'll have it sent to my other brother in Texas or a very good friend of mine in Nevada or WA).

Thanks

Doc

Since you're not actually selling them, but giving them as a gift in this instance,  IA shouldn't have a problem.

Welcome to the Doc Watmo Purification Testing Service Company(DWPTSCO fo for Short).  Please send us your equipment and we'll test it using standard practices and report back on the results.  Unfortunately your devices will not be "Sale-able" in IA as we are not the aforementioned certified testing service.   ;)

I could actually use a good filter system this summer when I go on my canoe trip.  Never really worried much about water in the past as we just always took along a LOT of beer.  The coffee tasted a little funny...
