    April 2011 Trip Report Contest - Win $50

    Ready? Here's the skinny.

    Each month we'll be switching up the contest type for Trip Reports. This month will be taking place on the Bogley facebook fanpage here:

    http://www.facebook.com/BogleyOutdoorCommunity

    The goal is to achieve the most comments on the Trip Report link you post on the fanpage. Here's a quick youtube video explaining the details:



    Our definition of a Trip Report is the same as last month:

    1. Be started within the current contest month. (does not need to have "happened" this month)
    2. Have the Trip Report prefix.
    3. Contain at least 1 paragraph description - @4 lines.
    4. Contain at least 5 photos and/or a video. Slideshows are included.
    5. The full report must be posted on Bogley and not link out to another site

    Any other optional features like an embedded Google Map may build value to your Trip Report and help your ranking. An "Album" in the Dark Room that meets these requirements will also be eligible.

    You may comment on your own link, but only the first instance will be counted towards your score.

    "Liking" the link will not be counted in this contest.

    Before anybody comments on your Trip Report link from the fanpage, they must Like the page itself.

    The prize this month will be a $50 Amazon Gift Certificate, along with a Bogley shirt and window sticker.

    Contest closes Saturday April 30th at Midnight.

    Good luck!

    upping the Ante...I like this!

    Btw, what if people wanted to donate gear or money to these contests?

    For example, I have brand new carabiners and a 2L Camelbak reservoir (not the backpack, mind you), and brand new entriers I would be glad to donate - since I have more than I'll ever need. And donating to people who would ACTUALLY use it and motivating people to post TRs, is a crafty, but great idea. Heck, I'll even pitch in a $20 gift card to Walmart/Target or the Chilis or something...

    How about a separate contest? We could do a vote on the top 10 TR's posted during a given month. Then award a Bogley t-shirt and sticker or the other loot that your offering. Would you be willing to run it?

    Open to other ideas as well.

    Penelope, if you'd like to get that contest rolling, I'd like to take a look at it before it's public just to make sure it's got all the right parts.

    2 weeks left. We've got a few contestants so far.

    How about you let the members here vote on it instead of the whole Facebook like thingy? Just a suggestion.

    Oh I've got all the right parts, but I'm certainly not going to post my tatas here! hehehe
    I won't be back in the canyons until July anyway.

    All kidding aside, just a reminder that the Trip Report can be from any timeframe in the past, it just needs to be posted this month.

    If you Like it from Bogley, I think it will just pick the first image it sees. It excludes animated gifs, slideshows, and videos.

    If you post the Trip Report link directly to facebook, that's where you can choose the thumbnail more easily.

    Yep, paste your trip report link into the Bogley Facebook wall and then you'll be able to select an image. Beech's video does show this process.
