I don't think those damned non-citizen immigrants should be permitted to compete in the USA West Coast category.

Yeah John, I think Cali shooters realize trip reports don't have to give away trade secrets and can be entertaining and informative for everyone. Tanc won with no pics in his report, just entertaining writing.

So, if you write carefully and take (or crop and edit) pics and video with no location-specific identifiers, you should be OK. These issues are not unique to Cali - I deal with it in my personal trip reports on the east coast of Florida and am careful with how much to disclose.

The message is simple - take care and post up trip reports regardless of whether they are Oscar material or just posting general water conditions and catch listing.

Spearboard enjoys them all. Tony

Thanks for asking that question. Let me figure out the timing.

The period for the trip origination dates is the second quarter of 2011 which is April 1, 2011 to June 30, 2011.

I guess I should start a nomination thread now this weekend for that second quarter.

The following contest will be the third quarter July 1, 2011 to September 30, 2011.

I have a pile of guns and need to decide which ones to put up plus the trips and any other prizes I can muster.

Here is what the rules said and we are behind schedule due to having to re-open nominations in two zones.

 Diving – Any time in the 6 months prior to the trip report thread origination date
 Trip report thread origination – From January 1 to March 31
 Eligible for nomination – From April 1 to June 30
 Seconding of the nominations – From the date of nomination to June 30
 Poll Voting on the top five in three regions – From July 1 to July 10
 Winners announced – July 11

The ACTUAL timing was that winners were announced on September 1 and that is about 50 days late.

We can try the following timetable for the second quarter contest:

 Eligible for nomination – From September 11 to October 31
 Seconding of the nominations – From the date of nomination to October 31
 Poll Voting on the top five in three regions – From November 1 to November 15
 Winners announced – November 16

Tony

I thought the whole nomination- seconding- voting process was a little complicated. Is there a simpler way of voting on trips?

We went with that approach which is modeled on an unrelated forum's "best of the best awards" so that the members make the main decisions, not the mods, me or some special comittee.

Now that we went through the first round with only a few bumps, I'd like to try it this way again and see if people learned how it works.

Democracy style approaches can be complicated - but the end result was quite participatory.

Based on your negative attitude, I doubt anyone would want anything from you...
