Celebrate 800 contests! Be a part of the fun!!

Have you ever wondered how Andrew and Paul pull this off week in and week out?

Well, to celebrate 800 contests complete, we are going to give you a chance to be a small part of the magic.

First, for the rest of the 801-810 series, we are going to be driven by you, our loyal players. Send us your suggestions for locations to include, and we will pick from those candidates each week. We’ve received a number of good locations as you’ve seen for 801 through 804 – but welcome additional entries. Not all locations pass our rigorous tests.

The player who suggests that week’s contest will not only get an automatic 2 points for the week, but, if they are interested, we’ll bring them along for the ride, backstage and behind the curtain.

The amount of involvement is up to that week’s player, but if you are chosen and interested, we’ll give you an admin userid to the site for the week, we’ll show you how we compose the weekly contest, hint and reveal posts, and, if you want, you can be the one to post that week (putting your name forever on the site for that post). Then, after the contest posts, you can watch the guesses come in and help us score the contest for that week. There may even be a unique token of our appreciation in it for you.

So, let’s hear those great ideas for contests. There will be a maximum of 2 entries per person unless we start to run out before 810. Post the locations (lat long coordinates if you have them, something else that will help us find the site if not) as comments to this post. If we can’t use a spot for some reason, we’ll discuss it with you separately and privately take any other suggestions you might have.

Problems submitting entries…

We have become aware of problems that some people are having when they submit entries. Once you hit the post button, you may not see the confirmation showing that you have posted a comment even though we do see the entry coming in.

We are working to find out what is going on and will let you know when we think it is fixed.

In the meantime, if this happens, feel free to e-mail either Andrew (andrew64giles@gmail.com) and/or Paul (pfranson@gmail.com) and we’ll happily check to make sure we have your entry.

So far, we have entries from hhgygy, Garfield and Phil Ower. If anyone else has submitted an answer, please contact us so we can get your entry in.
