I have decided to launch a new, intereresting contest that will last a full year.<br><u><strong><br>The Zodiac Sign Contest!</strong></u><br><br>I am talking about the twelve western astological signs. <br><br><a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Astrological_sign" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Astrological_sign</a><br><br>Starting with <u>"The Bull" (April 20 - May 20)</u>, there is one sub contest every month. <br><br>During the span of the current sign, anyone can enter the competition.<br><i><br>The slingshot must have a design that is recognizable as the current sign (e.g. looks like a bull). The resemblance may be symbolic and/or vague, though. Artistic freedom is fully respected.<br><br>It must be presented here with at least one picture.<br><br>It must have been made by the person who posts it.</i><br><br>After the month is over, the voting is open to all members of this forum. The voting ends at the last day of the span of the next sign (so the voting for "The Bull" ends May 19, 2012). <br><br><strong>The Winner gets:</strong><br><br>- 100 &euro; in cash (PayPal)<br>- A "Cougar" or "Panther"<br>- The sign "Theme Slingshot" made by myself (Jörg). It will be presented here, too, but won't participate in the contest.<br>- A shoutout on youtube on The Slingshot Channel<br>- Glory, fame, and honor<br><br><strong>Further,</strong> there will be a rafle amongst all the voters every month. One Panther or Cougar slingshot will be the prize. <br><br>After the last contest is over (Aries, ends April 19, 2013), the overall winner will be drawn from all the monthly winners on May 20, 2013. <br><br><u><strong>This Overall Winner will get</strong></u><br><br>- <u>1000 &euro;</u> in cash (PayPal)<br>- A full episode about the winning slingshot on "The Slingshot Channel"<br>- The unlimited pick of one of my slingshots - no exclusions (as long as I still own that slingshot). Crossbows included. <br>- A place in the (imaginary) Slingshot Hall of Fame<br><br>Good luck! The race is on.

Free pick out of your slingshots???!!! I'm sure that is worth much more than 1000 of whatever currency ! I think this means there is potential for one of Joergs works to hit the open (black) market ( this is hope for us who lose <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_razz.gif" alt="Razz" longdesc="9">) <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1"> This is a good day truly
