We're excited to share this "Idea of the Week", submitted by either the MAiZE staff or one of your fellow siteowners. There never seems to be a shortage of ideas and the truth is that some of the best originate with all of you! So, if you ever have an idea you'd like us to pass along to the group, please just send it our way. Also, please remember that we'll be archiving these ideas on the siteowner web site, so that you can go back and view them whenever you like.
Spiderweb & Jumping Pillow Discounts for MAiZE Members Extended!
On the website, we have posted information regarding several agritourism products that we are big fans of and who offer discounts to MAiZE owners.
The Spiderweb offers a 20% discount that has been extended until April 1
Also the Jumping Pillow has new pricing available and offers a material that is 25% heavier than the competion and has the safety info printed directly on the pillow. Orders placed by April 1 can be installed by our teams the same time your maze is cut, which will save you $1750 on the total price.

That Rocks!
After taking a brief break from our Ideas of the Week to prepare for the Corn Party, we're back this week with an idea that truly ROCKS! Many of you have seen these giant rocking chairs over the past few years and several of you already have them even. After being highlighted in a couple of different slideshows at the Corn Party, we've gotten a lot of recent inquiries about where to get them.

Following is the contact info for the gentleman in Dolph, AR who makes the chairs. The cost is $2150 and he will be accepting orders up until March 15. At that point he’ll be making all the chairs in one big batch for whatever orders he has received. He most likely won’t be making any extra for late orders, so be sure to get in touch with him soon if you’re interested.

* For those interested in building their own, Gary Starr (a member of our own MAiZE family) was kind enough to share the building plans for the chair he built. You can view them by clicking here.
