THE 2011 FUN PHOTO COMPETITION
« 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

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

I don\'t want a second childhood. I\'m still enjoying the first one.





I\'m retired.
I was tired yesterday, and I\'m tired again today.
