I nominate Spinningwood for the 2010 In-Feste-ation Award.

Ed Spinningwood is a valuable member of the Pro and Options communities. He's especially helpful to new Fools because he answers questions quickly, thoughtfully and objectively. In the following example Ed posts a PDF file on his website to help a Fool with their investment calculations.

Ed added fun and conversation to the boards by sponsoring The 2010 Winter Contest for which he carved several prized wood pens. I won the Marblewood pen and when I use it I think of the service Ed provides to fellow Fools.

Not only did several Fools win pens, the contest encouraged us to post for the benefit of the Thurgood Marshall Academy. Ed's contest provided a boost to Motley's "Foolanthropic" endeavors.

Ed posts on the boards nearly every day and helps Fools as shown by this example.

Finally, Ed cares about Fooldom and offers critique and observations in a self-effacing yet constructive manner as shown here.

For these reasons and more, Spinningwood is a valuable resource who improves the quality of Fool membership. Award Spinningwood the 2010 Feste. (Jedi Mind Trick hand wave.)
