BYOWP - OLS group catagory
Any OLS'ers interested in gettin' an OLS group together to enter the Bring Your Own Winner Paddle contest?




Quote:
Show your individuality or show your team spirit!

Wave them high and wave them proud, but you better make them sturdy because we plan for you to be winning and waving your paddles all weekend long!

This contest will have two categories...

Individual - Use your imagination and create the luckiest, best and most amazing paddle.

Group - Coordinate or complement or just plain shear numbers. Create as a club or group of convention buddies

The rules - No loud noises, nothing that leaves a mess, no projectiles or anything that infringes upon your fellow sweepers enjoyment of the convention.

Judging criteria - None, the winners will be whatever catches our eyes, makes us laugh or impresses us.

You have a year to create so BYOWP!




Let me know!

Hmmmm...this could be fun! You are awesome with creating graphic designs, Richard has a workshop downstairs and I'm kinda crafty and have summers off to play with paint and markers and such.

If you design it, perhaps we can do production on them and pass them off to you and Baked on your road trip to the convention.

Just a thought...

I want to wave an OLS paddle too and I would also like like to make an indy paddle. I tried looking up pics of any winner paddles and I couldn't find any. Since it's my 1st convention, I think it would be fun to make one along with having the group OLS paddle.
Does anyone have any pics of previous winner's paddles that they can post so I can get an idea of what they look like? Please clue me in, I'm full of newbie convention excitement lol

Check out my DD's art, views and comments welcome.

Mrs
I could be wrong... (last year was my first convention) but I don't think they've ever had a paddle contest before. I don't know what OLS is doing. I don't think there are many ideas for paddles! I've been thinking about how to make them but i'm not that creative! lol

Here are the paddles they handed out to everybody at the NH convention a couple of years ago. Other conventions had similar sized paddles -






I won't be participatin' in the group catagory - I'm gonna enter the individual catagory though. Good luck to the OLS'er group!

I think I read somewhere that you can do both - individual and group. KISSaholic4life, thanks for sharing that picture - I love it!

May the sweepstakes fairy visit each of you today!

Thank you all for replies
Janna- I've been trying to come up with something too but i'm thinking about it too much, it could be a visual overload lol
KISSaholic4life- Thanks for sharing the pic, now I don't feel totally clueless and that's a start.
I can't wait to see your winner's paddle, your a crafty guy so it's gonna be cool.
SweepyLin- I did see that you can do both, which is what I would like to do. I definitely want to make one.
Does anyone know who's the OLS paddle coordinator, how exactly does it work with the group paddle, is it still an option? If it is, is anyone else going to do both?

I will be proudly waving my amazing club's amazing paddle, and I've been working on an individual paddle too . . . but I look forward to seeing y'all wave your OLS paddles (I know they will be amazing too!). MISFIT13, in answer to your question above, the BYOWP section on the convention site does give the option of a "group of convention buddies" creating a paddle.

May the sweepstakes fairy visit each of you today!

Linda
