Cornerstone of the Fool - The 13 Steps

How would youlike to win a selection of Foolish stuff -- ball caps, t-shirts, boxers, ties -- and how would you like to come to Fool HQ in Alexandria, Va., for a day?

If you win our contest, we'll fly you here for a day, put you up in a hotel, and feed you three square meals. Uhh... what contest is that? Simply post a better response than anyone on the planet to the following question:

What would you like to see The Motley Fool do in the next three years?

Drop your answer on our Fool Anniversary Contest message board. The most thorough, thoughtful, and Foolish of all responses wins.

The lucky winner will spend an entire day at Fool Global Headquarters. You'll attend the daily content meeting; you'll get to spill something on Dale Wettlaufer (writer TMF Ralegh); you can expect to play a good deal of ping pong and pinball; you'll hang with David and Tom and the gang, go for cookies at 3 PM, and ink a Fribble about your experience. Oh, and, expect that we'll probably put you to WORK, too.

Why are we doing this?

We're celebrating. August 4, 1997 marked our third anniversary on America Online. It may not be a silver wedding anniversary or a Sweet-16 party, but it's a great big deal nonetheless. Looking back three years, The Fool has much to be proud of -- The Motley Fool Investment Guide, the great portfolio returns, the hiring of 100 highly Foolish employees, and our position as the driving force behind new reforms on Wall Street.

That's all great -- but what's the biggest thing that we have to celebrate? The chance to hang with great readers like you. We're celebrating our anniversary by celebrating you -- and bringing the biggest Fool of all into HQ for a day.

This once-in-a-lifetime contest is sponsored by Pacific Brokerage Services!

Contestant participants must live within the continental United States and be 18 years of age or older. This contest is not open to Motley Fool employees, Partners of the Fool, or their families.
