~~~ The Fabulous Forum Photo Challenge! ~~~

Recommended Posts

PHOTO CHALLENGE I:

 

"Shiver me timbers, I found me treasurrrrrrre!"

 

* * * * * * *

 

Post a picture of a team member...

 

wearing a pirate hat,

 

and an eye patch,

 

with a parrot on their shoulder,

 

standing barefoot,

 

in a public fountain,

 

at least ankle deep in water,

 

holding THIS MAP,

 

and a geocoin...

 

TRIUMPHANTLY!!!

 

* * * * * * *

 

Standard Caveats:

All listed items, objects and actions are to be taken literally, and must be clearly visible in the photo.

And of course, the Cointest Rules posted here apply as well.

 

Specific Ridiculousness:

1. Avast, ye!

No homemade paper hats, or cut-out parrots.

 

2. Polly wanna shoulder?

The parrot can be a stuffed animal, puppet...or even real, but its gotta be on the shoulder.

 

3. Get yerrr feet wet, ya land lubberrr!

If it's winter in your part of the world, improvise, but you need to be ankle deep in water, and in a fountain.

 

4. Aye, here be me booty!

Put the "oomph" in triumphant. I need to see some serious jubilation, or you'll walk the plank!

 

* * * * * * *

 

Ladies and Gentlemen, start your search engines!

 

GOOD LUCK AND HAVE FUN!!!

Pirate hat - Check

Eye patch - Check

Parrot - Check

Barefoot - What do you mean you won't go barefoot?

 

Drat foiled by a man afraid to show his feet in a picture. Oh well the nearest public fountain I can think of is a 15 mile drive and last time I looked it didn't have any water in it. Nearest one with water that I know of more like 30. Better luck next time. I can't wait to see the pics. What a fun contest.

I can't believe there hasn't been a picture yet!! I tried calling around today to find a pirate hat, as I figured I could come up with a stuffed parrot one way or another..........

Alas, tis a sad day when a pirate must admit defeat. There be no pirate hats or parrots in my domain. As for the whereabouts of a fountain...the closest I would be gettin is the beach at the yacht club...we could do a variation on a sailing galleon but I dont think that would cut it.

Good luck everyone!

Yeah, so were the people drivin' by as this fountain is on a fairly busy corner here in town and right across the street from a park that is usually PACKED with soccer players.

One person drivin' by even honked!

It was a HOOT!!

We've got more pics. pretty much the same. When Mrs. rockymtn8iv tried to get a better shot of the POG coin (which she did), she cut me legs off!

 

Anyone got a spare peg leg??? :anibad:

Wait a second... Is that a property fence back there on the left within the trees? Is that a PUBLIC Fountain???? LMAO!

 

While I'm sure the tint of blue on the right is a sign stating such, thereby verifying... we need the judges ruling on this! Arrrrrrrgh!

 

notworthy.gifnotworthy.gif THAT's FRICKIN' AWESOME!!! notworthy.gifnotworthy.gif

 

This has got to be one of the funnest cointests ever (IMHO).

GREAT cointest!

Well...blow me down, me bucko!

 

BRAVO, rockymtn8iv, BRAVO!

 

Excellent! Just flat-out excellent!!! Congratulations, and my sincere thanks

for kicking off this project with exactly the spirit I was hoping for.

I can only imagine the looks you got as you stood there in the water like the Karate Kid.

A job well done!

 

And to the victors, go the spoils...

 

Not only have you earned your Compass Rose booty,

but I am proud to present you, rockymtn8iv,

with the first ever...

 

Certificate of Ridiculosity

 

certificatePC1.jpg

 

It is well known that geocachers are rarely ashamed to put their enthusiasm on display for all to see.

Yet, there are those that truly go the extra mile in spreading the spirit and essence

of what the sport of geocaching is all about.

 

This prestigious, yet nonsensical award shall be bestowed only upon

those select few individuals who demonstrate the extraordinary ability

to stare embarrassment directly in the eye...

and enthusiastically embrace their inner imbecile.

 

:lol::lol::grin:

 

Let's hear it for rockymtn8iv

 

---> applause, applause and more applause <---

 

* * * * * * *

 

That's our show for today, folks.

But be sure to stay tuned for our Fabulous Fourth of July special!
