I am happy to announce that I will be offering a Garmin Etrex Legend as a prize for attendees of the Copper Rush event.

To enter:
In order to qualify you must log the event as "attended" and you must post at least one picture from the event with your log.

Winner:
The winner will be chosen two weeks after the event, or after the event is archived (whichever comes first). It will be a pseudo-random draw. I will pick my favourite 10 images from the event gallery and randomly draw the winner from that.

Tips:
The more images you upload with your logs, the better your chances are but only one image from each cacher may be in my "top 10". If you are caching as a family, be sure that each family member logs attended with their own account and posts unique pictures to increase your odds.

Prize collection:
If the winner is in the Lower mainland/Fraser Valley, we can arrange for pickup/drop off. If the winner is beyond reasonable driving distance from Langley I will ship the prize to you at my expense.

So don't forget your cameras if you are heading to the Copper Rush!! Hope to see you all there.

A couple other things to clarify as I cant seem to find the edit button for my previous post.

-There is only one prize.

-Final judging conditions / deadlines may change depending on the quantity of images in the gallery for the event (but will not be sooner than stated to allow everyone time to upload their pictures and logs)

-Winner's caching name and winning image will be posted in this thread after the winner is drawn, and I will also send an email through the winners geocaching.com profile.

I want so much to post the picture, but think it more of a PG-13 rating. But if you would like to see the picture, send me a message and I'll e-mail you a link.

Just a reminder to post up your pics with the "attended" logs. So far there are only 10 unique cachers with photos, which is making it difficult to find 10 favourites. I realize not everyone frequents these forums, so if you know another cacher that was there please encourage them to post the pics. Hopefully the Turtles can send an event announcement as a reminder.

As a teaser these ones have made it into my top 10 so far, but could be bumped if/when more pictures arrive.

Uploaded some pictures (36 actually Shifty ) while the system was up this morning. They seem to be doing maintenance on it during the evening.

In light of all the upload issues and the likelihood that many cachers took an extended holiday, I will be extending the deadline to Aug 21st for all photo submissions. I want to be sure that everyone that wanted to, gets a chance at it.

I've been looking at the pics too. Some people have a great eye for photography. I doubt I'm in the top ten anymore. And I like it in an unusual way.

It's always a pleasure to see people taking time out of their caching day to absorb the surroundings and document it on the camera.

I have many favourites. I'd find it hard to judge.

Firstly I would like to thank every one for submitting pictures.
It was sooo tough to pick my top 10 favorites and unfortunately there was some really great shots that I love, but narrowing it down to 10 was necessary. So I am sorry to some of you that didn't make my top ten. Perhaps if I do this again next year, I will do it a little differently but this is the way that I had committed to doing it.

I picked my ten and made a list. I ran this list through www.random.org/lists/ randomizer.

Results were as followed:

List Randomizer

There were 10 items in your list. Here they are in random order:

1. RATCHET_FMR - I'LL - BE - BACK!
2. Adroit Seeker - On top of the world - what a view!
3. Jazzpurrr - Final cache & pose of the greatest weekend ever!
4. Scruffster - Cave Exploration
5. Mr. Wilson & a Mt. Goat - Dust!
6. dloubert - "Sally" conquers another one...
7. Chewy_06 - Before Noon Panorama
8. nenners - Fair ground neighbour
9. Pro & Cras Tin8 - Last Cache of the Day
10. hollyburn - ~~~~~~~~~~

I then used the integer generator at www.random.org/integers/
to pick a number 1-10, 1000 times. Analyzing the list of integers gives me the winner by the most frequently drawn number. Here are the results of 1000 draws:

1. 98
2. 108
3. 92
4. 80
5. 118
6. 95
7. 102
8. 102
9. 94
10. 111

As we can see by looking at the list the winner was #5 with 118 draws.....

Mr. Wilson & a Mt. Goat - Dust!


Thanks once again to every one for their contribution!

Mr. Wilson, please send me your shipping info and I will get it shipped out to you asap.
