CONTEST: Pick your favorite IR forums post and win a calenda

Post by fonixmunkee » Tue Dec 18, 2012 12:20 pm

With no one venturing out to the the island this time of year, and most of spent planning our holidays rather than another trip back, I thought we'd keep the conversation alive on the forums here with a little contest. Here's how it works:
  • Simply pick your favorite post of 2012 on the forums and link to it here. Your favorite post might be one that you got the most information from, one that contained your favorite picture, or one that has the most humor in it. Simply select the post, then link to it with a reply below
  • Be sure to REPLY to this post and link to your favorite post ONLY ONCE. Only your first post will count; all others will be disregarded!
  • How do you link to a SPECIFIC post? Easy, simply find the post, then click the bold subject line for the post. This will give you a URL such as this:

    Code: Select all

    http://isleroyaleforums.com/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=1894#p12396
    Notice the URL contains a hash mark, followed by a number? That's the number of the post, and anyone who click that link will jump automatically down the page to your favorite post. Try it out by clicking here: http://isleroyaleforums.com/viewtopic.p ... 894#p12396
So what will you win? If your vote for favorite post is selected, you'll get a free copy of Ingo's custom-made 2013 "Reflections on Nature" calendar, featuring beautiful photos from Isle Royale!

Contest deadline: You have until 12am on December 31st to submit your entry for favorite post. After that, we will randomly select a winner using random.org.

Good luck!

OK if a new guy goes first? Haven't been everywhere on these boards, but my favorite post so far is this one:

The beautiful pics have really gotten me excited about my own trip to IR this coming August.

Thanks

It definitely seems like Trip Reports (with pictures) are the popular posts here. And it was very fun for me to go back and read through them and look at the pictures. Thanks for your votes so far, everyone!

Thanks for the vote Dro. How are you guys doing? I miss you all very much and the island too! You guys are the best and closest thing I have to being on the island in between my the trips I take each year. I recently got hired to a new job position and it has not left me with any time to see how you have been. I will be off of the next two weeks and hope to connect with a lot of you while I am free. I also have the intentions of writing my trip report that I still owe you from my September Trip. It will be a great opportunity to revisit the island even though we all cannot be there right now and it will give me a chance to make a good push for that calander. I shall begin posting next week :) Hope you areall well and have a great holiday in the mean time.

Not sure if I'm too late, but I like this one:

(Kinda speaks to the benefit of this forum; content is beating the NPS to it's own website!)

I've been a long time reader of this Forum. And had to finally become a member to submit my vote for the best Post. I've read them all (i think) And the one that consumed a lot of my time at work, and i got lost in more that once.

I think some might agree, and I look forward to the one to follow..

I'm not voting, but thanks to whoever thought of this post contest, as i had one of my best laughs of 2012 over Rafiki's machinations over the letter Q in the grocery store game. It would have been classic if a moose had stepped out to join him on the trail, at the same moment that he was all wrapped up in the "Q" struggle. Talk about priceless... Thanx
