Recently, we told you about some upcoming "pilot" sponsor campaigns that will help us sign long-term sponsorship deals that will shape the future of DBR, its success, and our ability to improve the site for all of us. We told you that we'd need your help to make these pilot campaigns succeed.First up is Lowe's Home Improvement. Lowe's is running a very cool NCAA Final Four "Cut Down The Nets" promotion that provides every Lowe's customer, from March 1 - April 10, 2007, the opportunity to win a trip for you and three guests for five days and four nights to the 2008 NCAA Men's Final Four. With Duke's young core and more great players on the way, the Devils have a great shot.
What can you do? Pound the the web page Lowe's has set up that provides all the details on how you can participate. All you have to do is click any of the Lowe's banners, skyscrapers, message board promos (the posts at the top of our boards) and/or links on the sponsor's page for details.
Or, to make it really easy, you can just click the Lowe's logo you see to your right.
There's another way we can get feedback to Lowe's and convince them of just what we have to offer. You can tell them in your own words how much you appreciate the investment they are making in DBR. Could you take a minute and e-mail them to show them what an opportunity they have here? If you've got a Lowe's story, or just feedback or commentary about Lowe's Home Improvement, e-mail it to us and we'll put the emails together and pass them on to Lowe's. If we could get them a bushel of e-mail, it'd make a big impression.
We're also doing a pilot program with Allstate. Â All they are asking from you is to Click any ofÂ the banners, skyscrapers, sponsor text message and/or links on the sponsorâs page, check out their new Your Choice Auto programÂ and get a quick, free quote.

Thanks for your help on this. You guys are great! We'll be doing it again soon with other sponsors as well.
