  • New Year's Best Contest?

    I'm a fisherman first, and I've always found that there's nothing like a competition to MAKE you go out there and try when you might otherwise stay home and watch My Cousin Vinny again for the 314th time. Unless someone has an idea for some kind of simple prize, this contest would be for bragging rights only.

    So, I'm thinking In-Situ photos of finds from either New Year's Day or, if it's easier for some, we could do the week.

    We'll all vote on the In-Situ pics and the winner gets a virtual high-five from me.

    Please post, "I'm in" and whether you'd like to extend it to a week or just New Years Day.

    Feel free to laugh at me, if this seems like a terrible idea!

    Good idea Dave, may be a bit hard for some of us northerners but I'm in if the grounds not covered in snow,it's not blowing 30-60 mph, the temperatures are -10, or I have to chisel a point out of the ground!
    We might need a week.

    Yeah Greg, I'm up north too, but coastal, which--so far--has kept us mostly snow free.

      Sounds like a grand game. I'm in but it'll be tough. I enjoy celebrating New Years so sometimes New Years day can be rough. But it sure sounds like a neat contest. Let's do it!!! ...Chuck

        Right on. Age catches all of us. I find I drink less and wind up in bed much earlier than the year before. So, DON'T GET OLD...

      Dave any contest is a good idea. Especially at this time of year.
      Greg you may be in the northern states my friend. But I bet that there is something old.
      Possibly even prehistoric that you could post a picture of.

          I am sorry but I will only vote this year
          Contests are great but I have commitments that are more important. Great Idea and I will watch who wins
          Thanks for posting such a great Idea!

            I will make an e4ntry into your New Years day contest.
            I just had to escape the house today. I had spent most of the day preparing my year end post and could not stand it any longer.
            due to the cold I was only able to stand it out there for 2 hours. And I almost gave up on this one.
            My in-situs or as I term them, "as found" pictures

            and once it was cleaned up there is a very faint 1809.

              2ndoldman, if we don't extend to the New Week... you win by default.

              And I have to say, I think that will be hard to beat!!

              Since it's for bragging rights.. let's extend it until this Sunday 1/8 at midnight

                Extend it please. Bragging rights or not all contests are fun.

                Well Dave not new years day but one day after. If there was ever a true Ray Charles find this is it. If I didn't see it I was going to trip over it.

                Snuck out with Lila today... probably the best hour of point hunting I've ever had. Four others not shown... I wish I could have stayed longer!!
