Title: PHOTO COMPETITION - GENERAL DISCUSSION
Post by: Rocket on April 29, 2014, 06:49:44 PM
This thread is for general discussion about the photo competition and the 2015 calendar.

The idea is to post all your comments relating to the competition here (thereby keeping the other threads in this sub-board free of general banter).

Just a quick one ...

Anyone wondering about the size quality of other info about the shot can you take a peek at the achive calendar info placed on previous years forum threads. they are right at the bottom of the forum main page.

Loads of interesting stuff in there

Cheers

Everyone's got a good story to share. Make sure you get yours into the photo competition. :046: :046:

There's nothing in the photo competition rules that says it has to be YOUR bike.

Watching someone else can be entertaining ..... :123:

Here's a couple of gems that made it into the 2013 Calendar....

Fancy having a shot?

Payback time.....

Now, if my local hand car wash place was to expand into doing bikes, I would definitely consider it..

And not a Rokstrap in sight!

Limitations exist only in the mind!

Back to reality, there's 10 weeks left before the close of the photo competition, so make sure you get your 3 entries in. Don't get caught napping and miss it!

Remember , you can enter 3 of your favourite photos into the competition. Win or not, its the taking part that counts!  :152: :152:.........and its for charity too!

Just as a quick note I am about 50% through the artwork for next years calendar but hope to have woken Rocket Ron up (see last picture above) to proof and approve by the end of this week  :046: :046: :046: :046:

As per last year I guess Rocket will post up and example page as a preview.




So .................. Anyone who maybe has thought "Hmmmm should I" ........................... then go on do it! Order one of these Calendars and feel good that you have contributed to a great and worthy cause!

Lets try to get the numbers up a bit and give yourself a years worth of functional bit of kit that shows off some of the best pictures from around the world.

If you haven't put your name down for one the of calendars yet, here's another reason..

Motorcycle Outreach is planning to start a new project in Tanzania next  Spring. Tanzania has one of the worst maternal and infant death rates in the world. The tragedy is that most are preventable if we can just get health professionals to the rural locations where many people live. Our bikes can help them do that.

 We will begin with a pilot project of 3 bikes in the Ruvuma region of south Tanzania.   ( but this will build to a fleet  of 22 eventually)  . it would be brilliant if the Tiger 800 forum could fund one of these. We will be purchasing Yamaha 100cc machines that cost 900 each from a local dealer.

To reach 900, , we need to sell around 140 calendars and we are at just over 100 currently if everyone who has expressed interest confirms with an order.

So , we need orders for another 40 calendars to achieve our target. All the money we raise will go towards funding the bike. Once purchased,  it will have a Tiger 800 Worldwide Forum sticker on it, the same as the 3 bikes we purchased for the MoR Indonesia project.

Are we up for this ?

If interested in ordering then simply add your name to the list via this link.

Details of how to confirm your order will be posted in the next couple of days. You will also get a PM.

Price will be the same as last year. :046:
