Topic: Yama Tradition (3 msgs / 79 lines)
1) From: K W Matley
My continuing quest to de-clutter my kitchen has met with dismal 
failure, as I seem to acquire dodads more quickly than I can get rid of 
them. Still, I try. Some things are fine to send to the thrift shop, 
but others need to find good, caring homes. I bought a tabletop Yama 
from Tom and Maria about a year ago and really loved the coffee it 
produced, so much so that I soon replaced it with the larger Cona. Poor 
little Yama now sits on the shelf unused (unfortunately so does the 
Cona, as I'm on an espresso kick at the moment). 
I am offering the Yama 5 cup tabletop coffee maker, complete with 
alcohol burner and a couple (at least) extra cloth filters (this model 
Yama doesn't accept a glass rod) as a tradition. If you are interested, 
please email me at  (I'm using this address because 
Chidak is a phonetic transcription of nChi-dag, Tibetan for Yama. It 
seems fitting). Please put "Yama tradition" in the subject line so I 
don't lose track of your submission.
My personal preference is to give the Yama to someone who has not yet 
tried a VP, but you be the judge of whether you want to enter or not.
I will accept names until 6:00 pm on Monday, 16 February. I will then 
write all the names on slips of paper and throw them in the 
wastebasket. The first name that my trash-raiding dog, Edgar, pulls out 
will be the winner.
Hopefully I will get the pot on its way to its new home on Wednesday.

The grand sweepstakes for the Yama VP closes this evening at 6:00!
There are 25 entries so far, so your odds are great!
 
Remember this is the only Yama VP drawing of the whole drive, so pick 
up your phone and call 1-800-oh, sorry--it's just that two of the radio 
stations I listen to regularly have just finished pledge drives.
Nevertheless, if you want in, write me at  before 
6:00 pm pacific time. Make sure that "Yama Tradition" is in the subject 
line.

Ken,
Great Tradition item and generous of you to offer it up.  I have an 8cup 
Yama and a couple old cory/silex vac pots so I don't want to be entered; 
I just wanted to compliment you with keeping the tradition of the 
Tradition.
Somebody is gonna get lucky tonight!
