Mine is small this year and will go unused. Not really happy with them in regards to their dropping Vista Outdoor products.

I did forget. Thanks for the reminder.

Edited to add: No checks issued for less than $25 :(

Ordered some North Face Rain Pants for $3 after coupon and dividend. But they're back ordered and have to wait a month...

Either Katadyn's new filter or MSR's new squeeze filter.

I ended up letting my wife use my dividend for a new vest.

Did anyone else notice that REI staggered the release of the dividend and the 20% off coupon? Clever bastards.

Oh yeah! Over the years the "co-op" thing has turned into just another modern marketing ploy.

I bought a ResQLink+. While I hope never to have to use it, it does ease the minds of folks back home.
