Title: THE 2011 FUN PHOTO COMPETITION
Post by: isibob on April 11, 2011, 08:42:17 AM
FUN PHOTO COMPETITION

You may already have seen in the latest Club Magazine there is a FUN PHOTO COMPETITION this year.
The Competition is open to all members of the Club so please if you can quote you membership number it would be beneficial.
The rules are very simple:

1) Take a photo at a faraway location or domestic location EXCLUDING air-shows
2) The photograph should include XH558 branded clothing or merchandise, club magazine or leaflet
3) The photo or title thereof should indicate the location and when it was taken
4) Then the comments can flow and sometime towards the end of the year we pick a winner
5) There is no entry fee this is a fun thing (but please feel free to donate anyway!)

So for example someone might take a photo of a person reading the magazine wearing a strappy top on the top of Snowdon whereas another might take a pic of someone in a hoody on the Equator !
I think you get the gist, it is not the furthest away that will win it's the most original or amusing.

So feel free to postaway here
or
if you wish e-mail to enuos@btinternet.com (http://mailto:enuos@btinternet.com)

Have Fun  :D

Don't forget the rules state that it is NOT the distance away that counts, it's the most original or amusing -I can think of a couple in Derby with a sense of humour  :lol:

You could always take a copy of Vulcan 607 signed by Martin, I'm sure that would be well received.  ;)

This is from 2009 if that counts?  I was taken at the Bedouin outpost of 'Ras Abu Galum', which is about 15km north of Dahab in the Sinai desert in Egypt:-

Er .....yes but clarification sought - is it a baseball cap or beanie hat ? It could make a difference when judging.

Congratulations to Smudger and Mr Tim for clearly understanding the principles of the Competition - now it's upto the rest of you members to put forward your efforts

A vulcan cap's tour of London...............

last Saturday I went to London for the day with my Italian son in law who wanted to see the city, my vulcan baseball cap went with me and visited a few unique places:

first of all the Olympic Stadium at Stratford:
(http://i83.photobucket.com/albums/j285/sickbag_andy/july%202011/olympicstadium_1171.jpg)

Then later in the day at the Cenotaph ( I took it off afterwards to be respectful but the photo would have been pointless if I hadnt worn it)
(http://i83.photobucket.com/albums/j285/sickbag_andy/july%202011/cenotaph_1246.jpg)

Then after a boat trip down the Thames to Greenwich.......
The British standard measures and electric clock
(http://i83.photobucket.com/albums/j285/sickbag_andy/july%202011/greenwich_1296.jpg)

and finally half a cap in the western hemisphere and half a cap in the eastern hemisphere ( not to mention half of me in each!)
(http://i83.photobucket.com/albums/j285/sickbag_andy/july%202011/meridian_1323.jpg)

closer to home than some but hope they are a bit unusual.

A few more from me.

I know some of you have fallen for the frankly unbelievable story that 558's been U/S  :roll:  but I can now exclusively announce that she was actually in Turkey with us:

558 had a lovely time chilling out on a lounger with Captain Pampers:
(http://i455.photobucket.com/albums/qq279/AggyMeers/Turkey%20Vulcan/IMG_0585.jpg)

Then 558 cooled off in the pool with Xander:
(http://i455.photobucket.com/albums/qq279/AggyMeers/Turkey%20Vulcan/IMG_0594.jpg)

558 also had a great time splashing in the sea:
(http://i455.photobucket.com/albums/qq279/AggyMeers/Turkey%20Vulcan/IMG_0650.jpg)

So there, now you know the truth.

Unservicable, my foot!  :D

I've been to Rome for a break with Mrs Sickbag this week and so here's my Vulcan cap’s tour of Rome (photos aren't brilliant as I only took my compact rather than carry my Canon about):

Firstly, outside the collusseum
(http://i83.photobucket.com/albums/j285/sickbag_andy/rome%20oct2011/vcoutsidecolluseum041.jpg)

Then inside the collusseum
(http://i83.photobucket.com/albums/j285/sickbag_andy/rome%20oct2011/vcinsidecollusseum083.jpg)

Vulcan at the Vatican - in St Peter’s Square
(http://i83.photobucket.com/albums/j285/sickbag_andy/rome%20oct2011/vcvatican301.jpg)

With Mrs Sickbag at the Trevi Fountain
(http://i83.photobucket.com/albums/j285/sickbag_andy/rome%20oct2011/vctrevi159.jpg)

And finally at the top of the Spanish Steps

and another one from me courtesy of Barclays (they reserve copyright but I'm sure a bit of publicity will please them), I went to the ATP Tennis finals at the O2 yesterday (should have seen Andy Murray but unfortunately he pulled out) and Barclays who sponsored the event had the Premiership trophy and the ATP World tour final Trophy on display and were doing free pics of people with it - fortunately i was wearing my vulcan fleece!

Since comments, serious, funny, quasi sarcastic or otherwise have been posted about the Fun Competition this is to clarify that the competition is still running, the initial brief was that towards the end of the year a winner would be chosen, well we are only 11 months through the year so the Competition is still open.

Nice to see the entries to date and that the logo has been to so many places ......................

So keep the entries coming it's not too late enter it is free  ...................

Well given that in 4 weeks or so it's "the end of the year" I would have though we were now well within the remit of "towards the end of the year" as it's December this week.

I'm not bothered how long you run it for but in my opinion the longer you run things like this, the staler they get towards the end, and for the sake of the participants (many of whom have probably forgotten they entered), perhaps it would be nice to publicise a finish date (even if that's not for a few weeks).

Ok, only 15 days to go till closing of competition.

Competition will close at 03.00 hrs on 1st January 2012, that gives you three hours after midnight to get your fun entries in and can include any festive creations that you may feel like posting.

Judging will commence early in the New Year and will be undertaken by completely a impartial team from outside of the Club or Trust and who will therefore be completely unbiased..............................................

Results will be posted as soon as possible after the 10 January 2012


So give it your best for the short time left but please no  :oops:  :oops:  :oops: ones  :!:  :!:

Not a great picture but an interesting perspective on BIG Pigeons!

By choice of the independent judges the winner is

Mr Tim (Tim Bell)


who in their assessment concluded that on the basis of following the rules for avoiding sunstroke by wearing a hat and coordinating his diving equipment (yellow and black) whilst managing to avoid being attacked by either sharks or Bedouins did manage to look as if it was an everyday occurance to go diving in a baseball cap !
