May 2010 Photo Contest

Post by Waterwings »

Yep, I know it's about a week before May gets here, but I'm going to be out of town the middle of next week, and wanted to go ahead and post the topic. May's topic came from Jim, and it's a good one: Ramps. You don't have to be a boat owner to take a shot of your local ramp and submit it. The prize....bragging rights and the photo on the homepage for a month, and also it's added to the photo contest archive.

Update (4-23-2010 @ 5:45pm CDT) : There will be prizes. Thanks to Jim and Hawghunna =D>

Rules:

Start date: Saturday, 1 May 2010
End date: Monday, 31 May 2010
Photo Topic: Boat Ramp
Entry: One (1) photo per member.
Location: The location of the ramp must be included under the photo when posted.

Details:
Photo (taken by you) will be of a boat ramp, and can include any floating or stationary dock(s) associated with the ramp, and can also have a boat (this contest) in the shot, as long as it's on the ramp, and the ramp is highly visible in the photo. Remember, the topic is Boat Ramps, so a boat in the photo is not a requirement.

You can change the entry photo (prior to deadline date) if you have multiple docks in your area, but only one entry per person. After the deadline passes, whatever photo is submitted will be the one judged. Judging will be the poll-type by active members.

You must have made at least 4 [legitimate] posts within the month of April 2010.

You do not need to be a boat owner to enter the contest

Any entries not meeting the requirements will be deleted, no pm's or emails sent explaining why. I'll open a thread for posting the photos this weekend, but it will be locked until 1 May. I will be out of town, but Jim or one of the mods can unlock it. If I have a wi-fi connection where I'm at, I may be able to log on from my wife's laptop (if she takes it) and unlock it. Not sure at the moment.

Shucks...My topic? That means huge participation from all the members right? :LOL2:

I guess I will have to throw in one of my not so famous custom made TinBoats.net branded spinnerbait to the winner of the May contest!

Awesome photograph cyberflexx =D>

Hey, if it's o.k .... instead of me sending 3 Mopster Jigz for the contest winner, I'm gonna send you guys 3 Constant Threat Baits' VYBE RAIDERZ.

Here is a look at 11 of our color choices (We can custom build any color skirt, head, and/or blade) that we keep in stock. The VYBE RAISERZ shown in this color chart have Mopster Style Skirtz, the baits are also available without the mop strands (heavy living rubber) , and we use Star Flash fully round silicone as our signature skirt material. The VYBE RAIDERS are available with a fixed hook (modified 4/0 Mustad Flippin' hook) or a free swinging 4/0 double Mustad Frog Hook, and slightly over sized double locking snap rings.

Yep, meant April, lol. ](*,) . End of the school year and too much stuff going on at the same time. Have a school competition to attend tomorrow, and two family weddings to attend this month. Appreciate the offer of the mop jigs. :)

Tell you guys what. This time (upcoming May contest) boats can be in the photo............but, we have to see the ramp (concrete, dirt, gravel, whatever it's made of) in the photo. Also, no boat in the photo necessary for those that want to enter the contest. I'll update the rules tonight.

If you didn't make a face, I'd be really surprised - and, your faces should win just about any contest here - fish or no fish..... your faces are kinda like fish anyway :P :P :P
Either cuff em & stuff em - or - catch em and cook em! In my world, "catch & release" is an escape!
