Surly Gives a Dam

Ice dams suck. You don’t need us to tell you this. As your roof sags beneath the weight of more snow and ice than should be legal, and with the forecast looking dire, Surly wants to make the best of your bad situation.

  1. Take a photo of your ice dam.
  2. Post it on Twitter, tag @SurlyGivesADamn with a hashtag of #SurlyGivesaDamnAboutIceDams; or
  3. Post it in the comments of this Facebook post.
  4. The best photo of the worst dam will be selected at random.
  5. The winner receives a $150 gift card to Surly, as your dining out budget is probably shot all to hell on roof rakes and maintenance.
  6. We’ll also donate $150 on your behalf to Habitat for Humanity’s The House That Beer Built project.

Deadline to submit is Sunday, March 10th, and 11:59 pm. Good luck.

Not only … Continued
