a giveaway might be a good idea, but don't require all those posts. just require registering and making one or two posts.
Definitely agree on that point. The "make 50 posts" feels very inorganic, and I fear would lead to fifty "thank you, me too!" posts from people addressing the contest and nothing else, rather than the content you're actually wanting.
Perhaps the "one or two posts" could be something like "write a 100-word or more story in our Adventures forum about the equipment and location of your most exciting outing last year, or the equipment and location of an outing you would like to make this year." So that there is something more "personal" about the post you're asking for, that might make a person want to come back at least to see what others thought of their story.
And the "second post" could be "and reply to at least one other member's story within the contest deadline"; with the hope that if they're checking & looking, they'll engage and reply to more than just one.
