    *This thread has been split, part2 can be found here: http://www.apug.org/forums/forum184/104768-its-camera-7-part-2-a.html#post1334588

    After much deliberation and consideration.... We have decided to to unleash Camera 7 on the world while Camera 6 is still in the stratosphere..

    There shall however be a slight twist in the tail ..

    There will be two camera's in this round.. Camera 7a will begin life in Ireland destined for Canada and the US of A.. Camera 7b will begin life.. also in Ireland.. however this camera is bound for Japan... The aim of the round is "The The USofA and Canada ~vs~ The Rest of the World". The camera that comes home first shall be deemed the winner.. There is a limit of 10 participants per camera.. and each participant is allowed two shots (if they're wanted or needed).

    The only stipulation is that if you sign up for the travelling camera you must follow it through and undertake to have the camera back out within 7 days of receiving it.. We already have some names on the list.. So please send a PM or post in the thread if you are interested in participating in this round.. it's on a first come first served basis..

    We can decide on a theme once we have a full compliment of participants.. however I get the feeling that volunteers will be slower off the mark with the length of time it's taken/taking camera 6 to get it's butt home..

    We just have to co-ordinate your time in Germany vs your time in San Jose to get you to shoot both.. in fact if we keep moving you around... there may be no need for any more participants!

    Lisa.. You so won't!

    List so far:

    Hmmm seems we are many more signing up for the Best of the World team!

    To even out, I could volunteer for the Dark side, and join them instead of the Best team which I already signed up for.

    If said camera could be sendt to me before crossing the Big Pond, provided it is sendt out from Ireland in the first place.

    Since I have many friends over there, I don't mind one bit, helping them out!

    Lisa and Rachelle I will gladly provide the whips if you ladies can do the cracking? I think if we're all over this like a cheap suit - we might just get it home soon!

    Sile! If you have trouble getting enough of them damn yankees or Souther Gentlemen to sign up, I'm willing to side with them! That is if the cameras are sendt out from Ireland, so one can just go to me, to be sendt to USA or some other foreign destination as soon as I have made my picture. Have a lot of riends over there on the Net, so I love pulling thier strings! Or put me in last on the Dark Side, and I'll send the camera straight to you afterwards.

    Looking forward to the whips! :smile:

    Erik

    Excellent.. thank you Erik! I'll give those "foreigners" a little longer to sign up and if we don't have a full compliment of participants I may just call you on that!

    The whips are currently being custom made for our willing whip wielding ladies who start cracking as soon as the camera's leave home..
