Well, my reasons for suggesting this are fairly transparent

1. just for fun, Based on that I dont think the stakes shouldn't be too high, or that it should be overly organized or there would probably some state or federal law to comply with since there is a "prize"

2. to give forum "users" and "members" an additional incentive to prove their 10" catch. Sometimes, just a little incentive will compell a blowhard to "put up or shut up".

3. to give the "unbelievers" a venue to provide all that money they were offering to throw at a probably undeserving female coona$$ to prove her catch to someone that is willing to "put up"

4. cant overlook this one -to stir the pot!

As to whether comms should be allowed to submit an entry.

I don't really care, the guy the guy soaking several hundred pots a day obviously has a greater stab at catching a 10"er statistically than the occasional handliner or weekend pot dropper. But as a forum committed to accumulating & dispensing information about Blue Crabs, it would seem counterproductive to deny them entry. It seems to me, that getting some idea of just how many 10"ers are out there would have some value to the overall crabbing community. We might find that 10"+'s are more common than we had previously thought and need to set the benchmark at 11" or hades might freeze over & all the cajuns might suddenly start entering all the 12" er's from Lake Ponchetrain.

My idea is to flush out the biggest Mumbo's and give somebody "legitimate" bragging rights.



I hope this wasn't aimed at me. I have no problem with a contest for the fun of the competition. I was just stating that if the purpoese was for proving that a 10" crab existed the contest wasn't necessary. As far as stirring the pot goes please clarify that.

Thanks

OK, I am getting my plane tickets.  I'm going down to LA and find a 30 something woman crabbing and steal one of the many 10+ inchers from her basket.  She'll have so many she won't notice.
I hope the prize will cover the tickets.  laugh laugh

We could hijack a tug! Make a run down the ICW and steal the whole basket.  Grin

OK so the "BIG 10" REWARD"
stands at present with rewards coming from these folks


OSB-                    $25
tugcapt                $05
madcrabber1113     $ ?? (maybe I misunderstood "I'm in")

There is also a plaque/trophy being considered to present to the winner.

I will edit the original starting post to reflect what seems to be a general agreement concerning the "contest", eligiblity, verification, and Reward.

If anyone else is willing to sweeten the Reward pot, post up.

While verification is necessary for the Reward,
Each person offering to sweeten the pot will be on the honor system.
If they don't send the winner what they promised it's on them.

It should only be fair to include everyone. 

Prize to the first 10 +

Tat could have the final say in measurement (If willing).  If within the time of verification another is found it will be considered only if the present crab is not legitamate.  Regardless if it is larger.  FIRST TO PRESENT ACCEPTABLE PICTURES and VERIFIED.

Simply put the time will be documented on the picture.  The odds of one being caught at the same minute are in the billions.  If it happens you should play the lottery.   

Prize is the commendation and temporary bragging rights for the season, or until the next is caught in the following seasons.

If the current posesor of the trophy moves or expires, the trophy will be sent to Tat or someone on the board trusted with the responsibility as decided by constituant parties.

Cheaters will be IGNORED by the participating board.

Some quickies for review guys.
