The selfsufficientish forum awards 2011 WIN PRIZES

Hello there folks

It award season and it seems that there is an award for almost anything these days so why should this forum be any different? There will be five awards, a top prize of a bottle of my homebrewed wine (not sure which one yet) AND a signed copy of booze for free. The other 5 will get some other books and other prizes (which will be dependant on what gets offered to us for prizes).

So the first round starts now and ends on 10th December, its for open nominations for the following categories.... So please copy and paste and post below. I'll post an example beneath this one.

Most prolific poster
The most selfsufficientish person
Funniest post
Most useful post
Most deserving of an award

Once we have someone in each category I'll open up voting for the top prize and this will close on 17th December. This is open to everyone who is a member on this forum.

No I won't use a smiley because I've decided to turn into Boboff, as he's turned all nice all of a sudden. Grumble grumble.

Let us be lovely
And let us be kind
Let us be silly and free
It won't make us famous
It won't make us rich
But damn it how happy we'll be!

Right then, not the most successful of competitions! Perphaps next time I'll set up a comp where everyone has to jump through a ring of fire, swim across a croc swap and retrieve a golden amulet from the jaws of ancient sun god deep in the jungle that time forgot. Hmm..... or perhaps a photo comp!

So the fairest thing looks like I should give everyone M3 nominated plus Mandy herself a signed copy of booze for free for entering and I'll do another more easy comp in the new year for the wine.
