    I got this idea from this SWD challenge. The rules are simple: 1. You need to be wearing something CM (i.e. something that would be fit to post in the CM WAYWRN thread). 2. You need to be doing something. Be creative (just look at Stitchy's contribution to the SWD FC). I know that a lot of the posters here are golfers, some like football etc, so there's probably something you can do. 3. Saturday is the last day to enter submissions. [​IMG] The contestants:

    Clever idea, Erik. I'll be out of town from Friday through Monday, but if I can be inspired to action, I'll post something tomorrow.

    Also, I would even consider proposing that no close-up shots should be allowed, only the action shot. That way the voting can judge solely the action aspect, which is the actual challenge.

    Ymmv but of course I am right.

    Interesting challenge. Not even sure I have any idea what to do. I guess I'll try to think of something...

    Just remember, Noodles, if you can't do the time, don't do the crime . . . :satisfied:

    Hmm... well, there's an obvious one for me given the number of bikes I own, but it does mean that I am going to have to persuade my wife to take some pictures for this - something she generally sees as pointless and vain (and she likes photography...).

    You are assuming that I have a phone that takes pictures (or even a phone)...

    I find that my kids have a lot of fun taking the action shot fit pics. I will try and enlist them again.
