Rise flyrod Give-Away Point List!

Post by Owl on Tue Apr 05, 2011 5:15 pm

OK guys, here's the Points List for the fly rod contest! The easiest way to rack up points it to convince your friends to help you out! Here's an example:

Jim-Bob gets 5 points for blogging about the Contest*. Then, Jim-Bob talks his friend Sally into blogging about the Contest.** This is the "Buddy Post" and it's worth 20 points every time Jim-Bob talks another of his friends into featuring the Contest on their website or blog!

* each qualifying blog post must include a link to OwlJones.com and RiseFishing.com
** each "Buddy Post" must include a link to OwlJones.com, RiseFishing.com AND a link to the "buddy" who prompted the post (ie Jim-Bob) in order to prove that they're helping you!

Also guys, I need to explain why so many of the tasks that earn you points involve showing something with "OwlJones.com" or "Rise Fishing" in it. Asking you to put the URL or name into the photo or video or whatever does two things:

1. It allows us to easily confirm that the post, picture, video was recently made and not something you pulled off your hard drive.
2. It helps to get OwlJones.com and Rise Fishing noticed.

I don't think we'll have any problems with cheating, but since you never know these days we're going to do it that way just to be sure. Plus, who doesn't want to see their name on someone's chest? What a Face

The following points are up for grabs in the Rise Fly Rod Give-Away Contest:

To enter any of these tasks and claim points you will need either a link proving the successful completion of the task, or (for real-world tasks) a link to a photo of the completed task. ( NO PHOTOSHOPS. If you try to claim a photoshopped image, we will catch it - and you will be disqualified from this contest. ) Additionally, we advise you NOT to do anything that may break any laws in your state. If any of these things are illegal where you live, don't do it. Got it?

And finally, a word about how to win....if you play the game right and don't try to cut corners, not only will it be more fun for everyone but it will keep us from having to deny your request to validate points. So don't try to cheat! If you want the rod, reel, hat and the other stuff, play the game, win the contest, be the man. Or woman. Whatever. Smile
