Please vote for our picture in the Yakima Rack Photo Contest

Post by kayakmamma » Sun Oct 07, 2012 11:02 am

:yahoo: We really need your help! Mat Pereda, John Hicks, and I are competing in a photo contest with Yakima Racks. Right now we are in first place, but are neck n neck with another photo entry. The theme is "Take More Friends". We really bonded paddling the Drawdown last week, and the photo captures that. Please vote! You can vote every hour.
Thanks tons, Lorraine McPhee :thumbup:

That's a narrow margin. Apparently, in this one it is fair to vote more than once...

Lorraine, if you win we all expect free shuttles or something!

Ha ha ha! Y'all are awesome! Thank you so much. We are staying neck and neck with an entry from another group, so every vote is a huge helping hand.

Gap is tightening. Darn you hour-per-vote limit!

Other team maybe pacing you; look for a push in the final day and final hours! (hint, hint - plan one of your own!)

I was going to suggest offering the other team cash to take a dive, but since 11 PM last night, they went from "tied" to about 50 votes ahead.

Possibilities include:
1) They have pooled 7 or more log-in ID's, and "short straw" stayed up all night voting.
2) Somebody hosted an all-night rave.
3) They managed to get 25 to 50 folks to voting once or twice before turning in for the evening.
4) Something in-between; maybe 10 of them work night shift somewhere.

(The above also provides a list of possible paths to victory.)
