Default YORF's 1st Annual RBG Contest

That's right, first annual baby. If this works out well then we'll have another.

Da Rulez:

1 - Open to all YORF members with the exception of Admins and Moderators.

2 - One entry per member.

3 - Designs must be original. Clones, up/down scales, scale models not
allowed. This is to be a creation of your mind, not someone else.

4 - Designs must be built and at least two photos submitted, one
static and one launch photo.

5 - Open to all types of Rocket Boosted Glider types, i.e. BG, RG,
RCRG, Parasite, etc

6 - Winner to be determined by poll vote. You must be a registered
forum member to vote.

7 - Voting period will begin 7/15/2009 until 7/29/2009. That means you have a month to get your entry in. The heat's on!

8 - Designs remain the property of the contestants.

9 - Prizes to be awarded to top finishers. The prize list will be published soon and there is some sweet stuff to be won! I kinda wish Scott would fire me as an Admin.


====================

This thread is for discussing the contest. The contest is meant to be fun, so pink book lawyers will probably get abused.
A separate thread will be created for contestants to post their entries. Puleeze keep the OT posts out of these threads. Create a new thread in Free For All if you must.

The admins have taken time from drinking Scotc... er... tweaking the vbulletin code to convene a special rulez committee meeting and have decided to extend the build time for the contest. You have roughly 10 weeks now. Now if you'll excuse me. I have code to get back to.

Between household maintenance work, HS graduations/parties, sports, scouts, and work, I barely have enough time for sleep. Maybe next year!!

I am... but I doubt it will be flown in time to enter. It is at the "two weeks" stage... and you know how that goes.

Most of the stuff I came up with ended up being a redesign of something...

Cool contest, great prizes and a great forum, but with NARAM coming up and several complex models to build and some of the conditions (Clones, up/down scales, scale models not allowed), I'm not going to qualify to enter. Hopefully the next one will go for several months and include some of the winter "building" months .
