For format, here's what I was thinking....

  • Limit entry to people with between 2,500-7,500 DL's at time of entry (is the entry critieria too broad?)
  • Winner will be whoever has the highest increase % in DL's similar to how the Ultimate Race was judged. 
  • Winner must also have reached Gold by the end of the competition to be eligible. 
  • Race will run until May 31, 2009 (is time frame too long?)


Thoughts??

Whoever is organizing the race, it wouldn't hurt to start a new thread!  Sounds like you'll have plenty of takers.

Oh, I wasn't trying to get you guys to leave!   Just thought it would be a good idea to get one started now so you can spread the word out to the whole community.  (Don't forget to link to it here so we can all watch and/or participate!)

Here's the link Niki. Fun to get in the contact sheet! It is funny though that they called it a race to silver.

Thanks swilmor!  I guess they just have their ways of re-wording things   Not a big deal; I'm stoked that it actually made the contact sheet!

WOOT! Got my race swag today and lovin' it! Especially the iStockArmy field bag and reel-head T. Haven't modeled the undies for my wife yet but we'll see how that goes later (don't worry I won't be posting a pic) .


Thanks again to Niki and Roxanne in HQ for making it happen!

Me, too.


Yeah, the T Shirt looks really great. The undies... well, not really my style and definitely not my color but I'll wear them with pride. And yeah, I didn't forget about the picture for Alina just won't have time for it before the weekend...


Thanks to Niki & Roxanne and the iStock HQ team.
