    [SIZE=3]Here is a basic run down of the race:[/SIZE]

    You have 14 days to post deals in the hot deals forum.
    The temperature of your deals will be tallied daily, and this total temperature will equal the distance that your horse has covered in the race so far.

    The horse with the most miles under its feet, will take home the major prize!!!

    [SIZE=3][COLOR="Blue"]Some more details on how to play the game:[/COLOR][/SIZE]

    [B][/B]1. First, you need to chose an icon and a tag to represent your horse. Size restriction for your piccie is 80 by 80 pixels or 19.5 KB (whichever is smaller).

    2. Start posting your deals. Please have a read of this [B]thread[/B] to pick up some tips.

    3. All of your deals MUST have your unique TAG. eg ‘MISTY’ my imaginary horse’s name. I will use this tag to track your progress. This is VERY important.

    4. Freebies are included. HOWEVER, the distance your horse will travel will only equal half the temperature of the Freebies deals you post. eg freebies deal post temp = 100, distance you will be rewarded 50m.

    5. Competitions are NOT included

    6. You are NOT allowed to vote on your own deal. We can see who votes for what deal ;)

    7. DO NOT vote cold on others deals unless you write a comment explaining why. Any user found voting cold on other competition deals without useful comment will be penalised. Eg lose 100m!!!! Minimum

    8. Please make your deal posts useful for, and open to all other Buckscoop members. Remember they are the ones that are going to be voting on your deal!


    9. [COLOR="Red"]The prizes: First place $50 voucher, Second Place $30 voucher, Third place $20 voucher, Fourth and Fifth place receive $10[/COLOR].

    10. We will also have [COLOR="Red"]16 x $5 vouchers[/COLOR] to be given away randomly to all members that join the race and post a deal

    11. Admin’s decision is final

    12. Anyone found creating new user IDs will get themselves disqualified.

    13. The winners will be announced 10am AEST Saturday 24th November

    14. Minimum of 3 deal posts required to qualify for any of the prizes.

    15. The vouchers will be from these merchants: Deals Direct, Play4me, Dstore, OO.com.au or Home Couture.


    [SIZE=3][B]Go here to list your icon and tag[/B][/SIZE]


    [SIZE=3][B][B][COLOR="Blue"]Comp is open to ALL Buckscoop members.... Not a member? Join up HERE[/COLOR][/B][/B][/SIZE]



    [SIZE=3]The Race will commence 9am AEST Monday 12th November and finish 6pm Friday 23rd November[/SIZE].

    So start feeding up that horse, get it some nice new shoes and a fancy icon and join us for the [SIZE=3][B][COLOR="Red"]Buckscoop Cup[/COLOR][/B][/SIZE]!!!

    You bet :)
  • lisss2007/11/10 11:29:59
    This is such a great idea :D
  • holdenmg2007/11/10 13:49:42
    Discrimination rampant here...
    You try running like a horse - it's not easy being tall.:confused:

    Start F.A.Q's here:

    1 Do Unicorns qualify?
    2 How about Zebras?
  • admin2007/11/10 19:54:43
    :D - very funny picture.

    see, unlike me, I think you'll get a bit of favouritism holdenmg
  • nod2007/11/11 00:14:45
    Well of course :D

    I guess anything that has 4 legs and can run is allowed. Oh except donkeys!

    Love the piccie Holdenmg but me thinks you will want to get yourself a different horse :D

  • jayne2007/11/13 23:16:11
    So the first set of results can be seen in [COLOR=Blue]this thread[/COLOR]. It's only day one, we're playing for two weeks, so anyone could be in with the chance of winning. Finding ONE good deal could really land it for you!

    So, if you are reading this and have not yet registered on Buckscoop, why not join in and start posting some deals!!
  • nod2007/11/14 20:48:57
    Yesterdays and todays results will be up late tonight
    :)
  • nod2007/11/14 22:13:50
    [SIZE=4][B]DON'T FORGET YOUR TAGS WITH YOUR DEAL POSTINGS!!![/B][/SIZE]

    It would be a shame if you missed out when you deal post so make sure that you add your tag.
  • nod2007/11/14 23:16:18
    Here again with another tip!!

    Quality of the deals is important too guys. Please only post deals that you think are actually a good deal and offer good value. That is you have had a look around and done a bit of price comparison.

    Good deals will get you a really good temp and are just as likely to get you a long way in the race :)

    Just my 2 cents worth
  • schlemster2007/11/14 23:24:57
    I am struggling to find a deal to post :D
    Quality of the deals is important too guys

    Gotta agree there. I might be snowman for a bit :D
  • nod2007/11/21 09:00:13
    We still have a few $5 vouchers up for grabs people
    SO if you can find a horse, a tag and 3 deals, you could be one of the lucky ones...

    I am going to do a final tally tonight but the final tally will not be announced until after 6pm Friday night - it will take me an hour or two to count them all I think :D
  • nod2007/11/22 02:47:34
    [B][SIZE=4]2ND LAST UPDATE ON THE BUCKSCOOP TRACK HAS BEEN DONE. WE STILL HAVE AROUND [COLOR="Red"]NINE[/COLOR] PRIZES UP FOR GRABS.
    [COLOR="DarkOrange"]SO FOR ALL THOSE INTERESTED YOU HAVE UNDER 48 HOURS TO POST UP 3 DEALS AND BAG A $5 VOUCHER!!![/COLOR]
    [/B][/SIZE]

    The competition is certainly hotting up. But there is still only one deal in it :)

    The Buckscoop Cup has come to an end. Thanks to all those members that took part. The response has been far far better than we could have hoped. We have certainly scoured the internet over the last 10 days :D

    I am going to do the final tally tonight and I will list up the winners tomorrow morning :)[/COLOR]
    [/B][/B][/B][/B][/SIZE]
  • admin2007/11/23 19:54:39
    I second that - the response we've had has been absolutely fantastic, not to mention good fun. So thanks to everyone who participated.
  • nod2007/11/24 10:09:21

    See the announcement for the winners podium :)
  • elegantegotist2007/11/24 10:15:52
    Aww. :(
  • admin2007/11/24 10:41:06
    :) - its not whether you won elegantegotist- its how you ran the race.....














    dont you just hate these philosophical statements.
  • admin2007/11/24 10:52:00
    I should also add - a huge thanks to everyone who made the comp as successful as it was. I reckon it was fantastic and its a pleasure to have helpful and humourous members.
  • ScarletRubies2007/11/24 11:49:38
    A bit of an upset there at the end (but it made me laugh, so I reckon it was worth it, Egotist... sorry!!) :)

    Hey Michelle - look how good you did! Really cool.

    I'm really glad to see that all 5 "big" winners were such clear stand outs - really ahead of the rest of the pack - and it's nice that 4th & 5th have same prize value, because that was a photo finish!

    A great comp, Nod, and thanks Jayne for mucking about with the graphics...

    [SIZE="1"]so, what's next?[/SIZE]
