As we've recently passed 6000 members, yes I know there's alias', pikeys and all kind of wierdo's making that number up, it's time for a competition!

This is BIG, and as I'm really crap at coming up with comp' formats, it's really simple, a sort of online raffle in reverse with an added twist of lemon

Pick a number between 1 and 6000, then post it in the comp' thread along with a picture of you riding

You've got 4 weeks to think of one and get a photo of yourself if you ain't got one already!

(To add a photo, you can link to a photo uploaded anywhere i.e. facebook, online photo hosting, just right click on it, select properties and copy the Address (URL) paste this between the Img tags)

I'll update, as I often as I can, list of those who've entered in numerical order, so that it is easy to check if your number is still available - UPDATED LIST ON PAGE 7

Any entries that contain links that do not work, or use a number that has been used will be deleted and the username added to a list of deleted entries at the end of the "used numbers list" You can resubmit your entry if it gets deleted

Also, you will not be eligable to win a prize if you have less than five posts on the competition closing date, this is a forum, a community, it's all about getting involved, not just making one post to win a kite :wink:

That's it! I reckon there's enough numbers to go round :-)

*Please use this thread for adding your entry, there is another thread running for general talk on this

Closing date for this is May 3rd 2010

The prizes listed below, will be awarded in the order they appear, so the first prize will go to the person who picks the number, or is closest to it. The rest will go to the numbers nearest the chosen number, in the event of two numbers being an equal amount from the magic number, the number which was submitted first will take the next prize in the list! I hope that makes sense :-)

The actual number has been chosen and no amount of bribery or other other methods of persuasion will make me reveal it until the closing date. The number has been sent via email through a couple of email accounts, so the email info will be available for those who wish to see it. This is the fairest and most secure way I can think of doing this.

Rules, we gotta have a few!

If you pick a number and it is already taken, the person who selected it first, gets it, obvious really!

Your number will not count unless it is accompanied by a photo of you riding!

One entry per person, it is possible that poeple may use aliases to enter twice, even with dynamic IP's it often easy to work out, also previous posting patterns can be a give away. Any new registrations who enter the comp will be heavily scrutinised. If anyone suspects another user of trying this, let me know :wink: Anyone found entering more than once will have all there entries removed - My decision is the last word on this!

Members registered as dealers, trade etc are not elliable to enter, it's these guys who are helping make this work :-)

Pro / sponsored riders are not eligible for entry, don't wanna see you guys walk away with a kite and sell it on the beach the week after cos it's not what you ride

UK entries only please, as many of you travel, if you are out of the UK, you must have a UK address the company supplying the prize can send it to

The prizes will be distributed by those supplying them, there didn't seem to be any point in them sending them to me, then me having to forward them on to the winners
There is one exception to this! Very soon I should have the Wainman Smoke in my possession, I will endeavour to meet with the winner to present this personally and do some photo's. The photo's will be used by Waiman and hopefully, the kitesurf press :-)

I can't enter :shock:
