Caption Contest- February 9-16- 2018
Posted By: BigDave, 02-09-2018, 12:50 PM

Contest is open immediately

The current "thread starter" is the moderator for this week's round of the contest. The moderator must post an original photo at the start of the thread.

Any forum member may invent and post a caption for the photo, posting the caption as a reply in the thread. (More details about submission rules follow below.) All readers of the thread, including those posting captions, are encouraged to vote for any and all of the captions they appreciate by "LIKEing" them using the forum's LIKE feature. (Note that this feature prevents a person from voting for one's own caption.)

At the end of the contest period, the moderator will count the votes and report who won. In case of a tie the moderator will permitted to place a vote to break the tie, except for that situation the moderator will not be participating in either submitting a caption or voting.

After determination of the contest's winner, that winner will be notified ASAP by the current Moderator/Thread Starter/Contest Host and will become responsible for introducing and moderating the next contest round. The new "thread starter" must post an original photo at the start of the new thread in the "Weekly Challenge" sub-forum category. It is helpful to regular contest participants if the new moderator posts a link to the new contest thread at the end of the caption contest round just finished.

*** Submissions can be in any written form (no video or audio files) — caption, limerick, motivational, poem or prose — whatever inspires you to describe the photo or catch attention. Submit by replying to the thread. Contestants may submit more than one entry but it must be in a separate post


Even if you do not submit an entry, please “like” any posts you feel deserve it as this is how the winner is chosen. And if you DO submit an entry, please also find an entry that you like from among your competitors' efforts and "like" that one as well. Enter often, vote more often. and most important: Have fun !

Your current moderator is BigDave
Contest and voting ends midnight PM (00:00) on Feb 16th 2018 EST.

And the winner is Nick DB! I know it is a bit early, but it is also a bit late in my neck of the woods! Congrats!

PS- I am the "Bald guy", my youngest daughter is next to me (bulky cloths, short hair makes it confusing) and my middle daughter is behind her (left) with my son-in-law (at the time, not yet) to my other daughter (yes I have three) to the right (hand up). And the flash caught me doing an "Eh Ha"!

Now I is famous!

OK Nick DB< you have the reins for the next image now!
