Essay Contest Topic - Week of 4/25/2011

Post by Owl on Mon Apr 25, 2011 1:23 pm

The winner of last week's contest will be announced tonight. So, now it's time to get to work thinking about and writing this week's entry. Remember, this is an internet essay - not your 11th grade mid-term. Pics are encouraged!

The topic this week is: My Most Treasured Fishing Memory

This one shouldn't be fictional. Tell us about your best fishing memory. Pour out that soul, man. Remember, a new rod, reel, hat, decal and flies are on the line! A reporting thread will be open again on NEXT MONDAY, May 2nd - because I'll be out of town again on Friday making just such a memory with my three good fishing friends, Joe, Chris and William. They kinda inspired this portion of the contest.

So..................get those fingers limbered up!

Good luck!

Oh you would make us pick just ONE treasured memory! I gotta break out the machete, the torch, and my bullwhip and go spelunking down into the depths of my memory to find that one super dooper most treasured memory now...

I feel you, flog, this is going to be tough! We are about to get all serious and emotional... I better start watching some emotional movies to break down my steel constitution that keeps me tough in the face of those Sara McGlaughlin adopt a puppy commercials.

Sounds like you need to watch Steel Magnolias a few times, then listen to a bunch of Jewel, and follow it all up with a little therapy geek

Can't wait to read ya'lls essays...

You are going to do great! You have the advantage of having your best fishing memories, the reasons you started all fresh in your mind because they are recent.

OK guys, sorry about the confusion - disregard the other thread about posting them on their own threads. You guys have made it easy for me this week. I'll be reading them tomorrow and posting up new totals tomorrow night.

500 points for anyone who can EMAIL me the location of my fishing trip this last week. As in, what river. Anyone a detective? Let's see...
