Hmm ...

Well, the second Evotri contest has been announced. Basically, it involves writing a blog post illustrating your personality and your commitment to the endurance sport community. Special code will then inserted into your blog post so that people who visit your blog can vote for you. The 3 people with the most votes will then be interviewed by Team Evotri members and sponsors regarding their vision of giving back to the community, which involves having in mind "an original project, gathering, or event, etc. that has yet to be launched, and that would bring the endurance community together either physically or virtually in the spirit of our sport."

I have an exciting original project in mind but don't think I'll get enough votes to be selected as one of the top-3 who will get to present it. I need some help making a decision.

Poll results as of 3/10/08:


Thanks everyone for your input!

Note that without the visibility of being on Team Evotri, the idea will be much harder to implement. If I gave it to someone who made the team, I'd help them implement it.

Shirley -I'd say go for it. Do it your way... winning isn't the major thing. Besides, if someone else wins it, you can still them about it.

Agree with Akshaye. I'll be ready to notify all my friends, if you decide to enter. Best of luck in your decision!

I would enter the contest with you idea. IF you don't win, then do the Event by yourself without sponsorship, or ask for sponsorship.

At first I was going to vote "try anyway," but then read that you didn't think you'd get enough coverage to win, etc. So, I voted other -- now why did I do that?

I want you to try to do this -- and then if you're not selected you can help out whomever wins. Make sense?

Go for it! Enter the contest anyway.

I say go for it! I'm going to try again as well, and if one of us makes it, we'll help the other one out. How's that?!. Seriously, you should go for it!

Shirley, I entered the Evo Tri contest for the first round, too but did not make it to the final round. When all the videos were posted, I mentally ranked them and I put you at the top--actually head of me--because I honestly believe you deserve it. It's a shame that it comes down to voting as opposed to a face-to-face interview. I say go for it, you deserve this sponsorship!

Shirley - Walt Disney put Orlando on the map. His motto, "If you can dream it, you can do it." You've dreamt it, now do it!

Maddy said...

Go for it Shirley! We will help drive traffic for voting.

And like Terry says, if you don't win do the event yourself!

Thanks everyone for your input!!

I've decided to enter the second contest and go ahead and spell out my project idea. If I don't win, I want someone else to run with it. I'm sure they're going to want help anyway :-)

That's it! We're all behind you!

Shirley. Definetely enter. Even as an EVOTRI ambassador you could run the event. I'm sure most of the team would help out anyways!
