What ideas do you have for our next competition ?
« on: July 02, 2008, 12:50:20 »
Ok, me ol' Deck Hands and Scrubbers ...and tea boy (footski) .... TugMaster needs you to get your thinking caps on ...

We may have yet another donation in the pipeline !!

This donation would be given away in form of a prize for a competition.

What ideas have members got for a competition ??

The 1st one we did was good and quite hard ....want something like that again ? ...or something different ?

Lets throw some ideas around !

Cheers

TugMaster

...Hi Guys....

What about a display of members boats at a Major Show (Maybe Blackpool)and get some neutral judges to vote on the Best Boat In Show...
This would encourage another wee Get-Together for Members...


But Nae Cheetin Mind...

...Best Regards...Norry...(Waiting to be Shot To Pieces)

*** I think Norry's idea would be great if we all lived in Britain, But the reality is that members of this forum are from across the globe, making the forum population "Global", If the Comp were run in this manner most members could not participate. I think to encourage all members to take part in a competition, it will need to be seen as to "Include All Members".

Red Bush tea please Footski, milk, 2 sugars ....ta

I have to agree with Franklin, we are a global site so any comp or infact anything we do, has to be fair to all. It was always our aim to make the site a world wide site. Hence .com and not .co.uk .... Where I live is immaterial.

Norry, you do make a good point though, if the site grows it would be nice to offer a "Best Tug" trophy at some of the best Tug/Boating events around the world. Perhaps this is something we as a forum can look to do sometime soon in the future.

Cheers

On the other hand we could have our "Best Tug" competition now.
We could hold it in Canada (always wanted to visit Niagara falls)
any member who wished to enter could collect their FREE TRAVEL TICKETS from our generous Tugmaster !   :D

Ah well, fantasy over with ...
I rather liked the first comp we had, a little on the hard side, but great fun searching out the answers.
No matter which way you throw me - I'll always stand.

Think I agree with Manxman...I would love to go to Canada and would be happy brewing the tea, but think he is right......Lets me out as I know nothing.....but think it is the best idea so far!!!

How about identifying several tugs from a mixture of skimpy pictures ?

Here is a sample as a tester.  Answer in a few days.

     Hmmmm, everyone must be doing some serious thinking here!! ??? ::)

We'd love to hear all your input :) :)





P.S.
 Ray: I  like your idea, but who would judge :-X :-X

Also, Geographically, if we all got together at a central point, I figure we'd be up on 'bigfords' roof, which could still be under repair after his last 'get-together' ;D
Any updates?
