Cool

FF1 - let's take this "off line" - we can discuss the category/awards thing & get the guidelines squared away, then present to the board - the 50/50 sounds good to me.

I'll email you with my work address and we can type tomorrow.

hopefully we can kick this off on Monday next week!.

thanks,
TMS

Wow - I havent' tracked this thread but it's really taken off!

I haven't totally soaked it all in yet but I have some comments:

We don't need a monetary prize if we use the flies as the currency. Thanks for the gesture but here's what I would propose if I were doing this, but of course this is your event and I am only providing an opinion as requested:

Each category takes entries.

There is no entry fee.

There is a first, second and third prize award per category.

First prize fly goes into a grand shadow box with the other first prizes. The winner gets the top tyer award for the year in that category. We will have a suitable award / trophy made.

Second prize wins a very nice shadow box with a lion's share arrangement of flies from the contestants, put together in an heirloom-grade manner.

Third prize wins the remainder of the flies submitted by the contestants in a nice shadow box.

The top flies in the grand shadow box will be auctioned.

The voting occurs on-line.

That way:

- no one needs to send money or deal with money
- every fly gets utilized
- more participants from around the world can participate

It might make a nice annual tradition!

I think this is a great idea... and I think Tod and flyfish can work out the details as was suggested... I will do whatever the group wants. Once you decide I am sure Juro Knows how to structure a banner or sign up.

Juro,
Great ideas! I like that much better than a monetary prize. I think it means more to be able to see the work of your peers and have it preserved in a way that's easily enjoyed. We'll try and get the details ironed out...

Cool

Chris & I are in agreement with your suggestions Juro - I'll meister & give you the heads-up when I've got it all settled. Then you can make the banner.

Also - Juro, is the book project still a "go", I'll be sure to ask for ingredients & how-to write ups anyway but this would be a great start...
