Thread: New (almost) Summertime Contest July-15th-October 15th.

  1. #1

    Default New (almost) Summertime Contest July-15th-October 15th.

    We're off with our newest contest, which in truth is our old contest. But just like a good TV show, some re-runs are worth watching the second time. We're rebooting the successful spring contest with the same rules and same prizes. Contest starts July 11th and ends October 15th 11:59 pm.

    We will rerun the posting requirement during the 3 month period. You will need 100 posts to qualify for entry and will count as 1 entry. Project posts can count toward the 100 posts.
    This time we are looking for Projects based in categories, each good for an entry. Only one project per category though to keep it fair, but a project in each category will each count as an entry, good for a total of 5 entries. Choose a possible maximum 5 of 7 categories. Please use at least 5 photos with a description of the process, materials used, dimensions, or special challenges encountered.
    We are looking for qualifying NEW, previously unpublished projects in the following categories:
    1) Welding Carts
    2) Welding Tables
    3) Custom Automotive on/off road Welding: i.e. exhaust systems, frames, buggies etc.
    4) Custom welded Shop tools and improvements: i.e. overhead lifts, stairs, presses, or anything used to help out around the shop.
    5) Decorative Metal Art.
    6) General Welding repair
    7) Barbeque Grills/Cookers

    In the title of each project follow the following form:

    Project 1 from Performance. Category: Welding Cart

    Additionally, we are offering bonus entries that allow people to compete, that don't have a welder, or projects in the works as well. All are invited to participate in this aspect as well. These involving "sharing" us with your fellow friends on social media.
    You can gain additional entries, for a total of 5 entries by doing the following, each counting as one entry.
    1) Sharing at least 5 items/articles/blogs via facebook or Twitter from our related sites during the length of the contest. No more than one per week. (5 entries)
    2) Like us on Facebook/follow us on twitter (1 entry)

    This will allow a grand total of 12 entries.

    The PRIZE:

    Spring Everlast Green bucks good toward the purchase of a product of their choice:
    1st prize 1500.00 of Everlast Greenbucks
    2nd prize 750.00 of Everlast Green bucks
    3rd prize 250.00 of Everlast Green bucks
    All the rest of the people who meet the 100 post mark will receive a 25% discount on their next purchase. These are not to be used (stackable) with previous contests or discounts. One discount per purchase will be allowed.

    AS ALWAYS SPAMMING IS STRONGLY DISCOURAGED. PLEASE DO NOT MAKE COMMENTS WITHOUT SUBSTANCE. NO "GOOD JOB" OR "COOL PROJECT" SINGLE COMMENT POSTS PLEASE!
    ALSO, POSTS THAT ARE DELETED (AND THEY WILL BE) BECAUSE OF IRRELEVANCE, OFF TOPIC, OR INSULTING CONTENT WILL NOT BE COUNTED. SO PLEASE KEEP IT CLEAN AND ON POINT.

    Is it OK to want to break something just so that you can weld it back together?

    I am joining the contest! This will be post #567.

    Contest rules don't say anything like "Previous winners should sit on their hands and give somebody else a chance" but maybe they should? Statistics are statistics- if I was to somehow win / place / show I'll forfeit, how 'bout that.

    I haven't be on the forums in a while - I was to busy with work and finishing the hovercraft.

    But I'm getting back to doing some metal working now. I'm starting a CNC table build - so I'm in at 100.
