    To all members.

    First of I'd like to appologize for the last contest i received many complaints for it been to hard to get a good pic and also the fact that it required a frog to take a picture of which didnt really help begineers.

    So instead we will be having a build a dart contest. The contest is to build a dart outta what ever you want from paper masher, coffe stir sticks, play doh to clay and anything in between. Then take a photo of it and send it in.

    The winner will receive 1 green and black auratus(winner will have to pay for shipping) generously donated by our very own James aka Fourfrogs from FourFrogsUnlimited.(he's a calgarian, so good news for our very large group of western members )

    here's the rules

    1. one entry per member

    2. the "dart" must be built by you or family members. It must be a original work of art , anyone caught using someone else's art will be banned from ever taking part in any other contest. Please be aware that i visit over 50 sites a week relating to dart so i will notice if a photo is taken from another site

    3. all entries must be emailed to cyberloach@sympatico.ca
    no later than Tuesday the 5th of july at 9am est.

    4. In the email please write your membership name and a title for your work.

    5. The contest will be judged by you in the way of a the poll will be set up 5th of july , and will last until the 10th july at 11 est.

    6. Winner of the previous contests are not eligble to win , but can for sure vote.

    7.The contest is only open to members that are already registered ie: sardaukar is the last to be elligible
    also the members most live in canada(due to shipping legalities)

    THE WINNER WILL RECEIVE a Green and black dart

    I think, other good than frog could be cool mostly because the shipping cost will not be 100$.

    Don't be too bummed Drew! I think that maybe the shipping part did turn a few people off, also a lot of the frequent posters on this forum already have a number of frogs (usually with the intention of trying to breed them) and to get a single frog, which you then have to devote an entire viv to ... I don't know, maybe this deterred some others. Honestly, the reason that I didn't enter was that to do a good "model" of a frog would have taken me hours/days; time I just didn't have right now (I know, now that I've typed it out, it kind of sounds like a lame excuse). Maybe a contest needs to be something somebody can do/put together in an hour or so max. Maybe a limerick or a poem, or back to a simple photo like best "group shot" of frogs, or a quiz with easy to more challenging questions about keeping frogs (not just for the experts . . . everyone who gets all the questions or the majority of them correct goes into a draw for the prize), or an article about frogs (or food, vivariums, plants etc.) that could then be archived on the site. Anyway you get the idea :)
    Just my two cents,
    Duncan
