Rise Contest Reporting Thread for 4/8

Post by Owl on Thu Apr 07, 2011 1:12 pm

On Friday, 4/8/2011 - please make one single post reporting all your Rise Fishing Contest completed tasks. This will be your official Point Request for the week.

The following Monday, all requests will be checked by me and point totals awarded or denied. Any denied point requests will be explained via the private message system here. If a point request is denied, it's most likely something that can be corrected. If you correct a disqualified submission, it should be reported on the NEXT WEEK's Official Point Reporting Thread. Sorry to change up how you report your tasks and receive validation of the points, but the old way wasn't quite as "mistake-proof" as I think we need it to be. This method should ensure that everyone gets all the points they have earned and that nothing is missed, even if we get 50 people in the contest at some point.

Thanks, and if you have any questions please feel free to email me at owl@owljones.com.

This thread will "OPEN" to your submissions on Friday Morning and close at 11PM EST Friday night.

Good luck, and don't forget to LINK to the proof! Smile

Here's my entry for 4-8-11..


Blog posting with 3 entries rolled in to one: Rise Fishing chest writing, the dog wanting to go fishing, and the cat wanting to go fishing with the dog...800 points in one post!

Video and Photo Entries

And here's the Email Response from Rise Fishing to my email letting them know I was in the contest:

Rise Fishing Response Email Blog Post

And here's one using the phrase "Well, I don't have any fish pictures, so here's my cat" w/ pix on my own blog

Well I don't have any fish pictures, so here's my cat

And older entries that haven't been verified yet, so I put them here for Owl's ease of checking (I would edit them off the other page, but it's locked...)

Went fishing today, sporting the owljones.com/risefishing.com pimpin' T-shirt I made. I was stylin'

A Short Fishing Trip - with an OJDC T-Shirt!

Unfortunately the pond is too far away from the parking area to get a good shot of the Jeep w/ OJDC written on the window, or I would've gotten that pic too! Maybe tomorrow...

I did however, comment on Dub The Thorax, with the line " Well, I don't have any fish pictures to show, so here's my cat."

Cat Comment on another Blog

Just created a "Twitter" account - my first tweet is about the OJDC flyrod giveaway! I'm @Floggin_Water on twitter. (I'm not sure how/if it's possible to directly link to a "tweet")

Floggin Water Twitter

Oh, and the cat likes Rise Fishing and Owl Jones...see!

Cat likes OJDC and Rise Fishing

Okay, so just in case Owl's mug wasn't good enough to pass muster as an "owl" - I replaced the cookie monster with a real owl at the bottom of my blog...

My Blog - scroll to the bottom for the Owl

Also added a contest button...

Contest Button!

hmmm.....looks like there's going to be just two of you left in this thing...time's running out to report your tasks completed and I'm not sure I'm going to accept anything that wasn't already in that thread without it being reported today. Wouldn't really be fair to you guys that are following the (adjusted) rules, would it? A two man shoot out for the Rise Fishing Rod and Allen Reel? Not really how I thought it would go down, but if that's the way it goes....
