Great idea, but I don't know enough styles to choose.  Go ahead. ;)

I would like to see points chosen from across the country. Pick a point one month from the SouthEast, next month from the Far west, Then East Central, High Plains. That kind of thing. We would then get more exposure to points from all over the country.

I vote for Mouse Creek.  Found in TN.  It's a rare, interesting, point and relatively simple to make.  I cranked out an example pretty quick. :)

Rare?  Looks just like my ex wife's teeth.  I will get one knocked out tomorrow.

Mouse creek I am in.    I think one month we all should make a point jackcrafty style.  I always wanted to hit my knee with an antler hehe.
