Ok, have you found anyone to pool the money? I'd be happy to if you guys are alright with it, and you have not made other plans. To make more payments possible I could take both money orders through the mail, and money via paypal.

What you guys say? I just want to get this thing rolling, and so long as we have the money pooled up we can be ready to go anytime.

If this really goes then I would probably like to handle the cash involved, just because it would be an "official" contest.

Question is, what kind of competition is this? The last one was most ingenuity... it could be the same or different. Also gotta remember we need PLENTY of heads up time for this, especially depending on the type of contest. An ingenuity contest would need to run until end of summer to allow plenty of time for ideas to be made and things built. I think ingenuity would be great to do again, but I am open to other ideas as well.

i think we should go with most realistic this time around. mostly because a lot of the guns on here look like odd space weapons, realistic ones would be nice. (I'm working on 3 or 4 different ones at the moment, sort of.... money is becoming an issue)

I think the contest shoule be for the best all-around cannon. Ingenuity would be a part of it. Make a rubic for scoring, something like this:
Ingenuity: 1-10 pts
Paint/finish: 1-10 pts
Power: 1-10 pts
Size: 1-10 pts
Overall aesthetics/design: 1-10 pts
% of popular vote: 1-50 pts

Popular vote would not be winner takes all, but your point total would be a representative of the % of votes you received out of all votes cast. The other items would be judged by a panel, like the mods. The average score from each other area would be assigned an appropriate point value. The cannon with the highest number of points wins!

This is one way that we can "shoot" for a fair contest that includes all members as well as makes it not so much a popularity contest, but has some specific guidelines/criteria.

Okay- I am ready to hand out money for this... who do I send it to?
