Since someone has to get to bed early so he makes it to work wide awake and on time tomorrow, we're calling July over a few hours early so it's time to vote and any last minute finds can be placed into the August Find of the Month which is now open for nominations.

Two votes per member so please vote for two phones in the above poll.


About half way through the poll week we have 22 members who voted.

Just a reminder to those 10 or so who haven't yet voted to take a look at the nominations for July and cast your two votes for the two phones you think should win the Find of the Month.


Okay, that's it for another month. The clock ran out on the July 2016 "Find of the Month" with 32 voters showing up this month, just 3 less than last month's poll but more than many past months. Thanks for taking the time to vote.

It was Gary Millam's post nominating his much sought after but rarely found WE Dark Grey 500 that took the award this month. It was an absolutely "right place at the right time" moment on eBay BIN to catch what I'm sure more than a handful of other members wish it would have been them doing the buy. Nice going Gary. WEBellSystemChristian's lead the poll until Gary pulled even and then passed his '37 WE 302, an interesting competition to watch.

And for that matter, once again everyone had votes which is always great to see so thanks to all for the nominations and voting. Let's keep the finds coming now for August, 2016, which is still looking for its first nomination.
