I was thinking it might be fun to do a face off contest between individuals. The way it could work is say I put out a challenge and throw 25.00, or 50.00 or 100.00 towards a challenger, if he accepts he puts up the same $ and we send the money to a volunteer bookie. We then have 2 months to complete the bird that was agreed upon. We each submit the agreed upon # of pictures to the thread and then it is open for vote by poll by the taxi net members for a couple of days or whatever? Heres a example, I Jeremy challenge for a face off on a drake mallard ( or whatever bird you want) with this pose ( here I would insert a reference pic) to who ever would take me up on it. I throw in 50.00 towards the challenge. At this point you wait for some one to accept your challenge and agree to the terms ( pose, time limit and such...) When agreed we ask for someone on here to be the bookie.. and then we send them the money. Maybee the bookie should get a handlers fee, I don't know but sound fair for his trouble? Some questions what if you are like me and kinda suck and than one of the good guys come around and accepts your challenge? Should you be able to decline? Or is it too bad to sad and follow through with it anyway ;D This would all be in good fun of course and what a way for us to hone our skills and learn by competing with each other. Should it be open to only 2 people or should it be open to multiple people with a time limit to pay in? It sounds like a little bit of work but on the other hand it would be a good learning experience and would be fun....I think :-\ I don't know, it may have some bugs to get worked out but first are there any of you feathers heads interested or are you a bunch of chickens.
