I’ve had more questions about this contest than any other we’ve done thus far.
It seemed to draw some interest.
I received a few e-mails and other messages. And I’m glad that people were thinking about it. Because if we’re giving away prizes, I need to make you think a little sometimes, don’t I?
So the big question was based around the photo posted last week and we asked — did the disc rattle the chains?
There were a lot of different answers and theories. I will be doing this again. I have ideas for it and different ways I hope to capture the disc to really make you think.
Such as this one.
What I loved about this photo is that it can really make you wonder. You can obviously tell which side it’s coming from. And the flight path makes it look like it’s heading downward.
But does it rattle those chains?
I’ve missed — and witnessed others miss — shots like this. They look perfect. Heading right in.
Of course, we’ve all been on the other end, too. You know, it looks ugly only to rattle the chains like it was destiny.
And that sound is a wonderful thing, isn’t it?
Of course a grown that comes after missing a putt can be humorous, too.
I know, I know — get to the point, right? OK, OK, OK… here’s the results. Peek below to see what the disc did as it headed toward the basket…
And people doubted it! Pfffft! Nothing but the rattle of the chains. (To be fair, look at the images again… at one point it definitely looked like it was going to pop out. But it hits the chains and eventually rested comfortably in the basket!)
Eighteen of you got it right that this Vibram putted did, indeed, get in and stay in the basket. So the randomizer went to work to pick a winner of a small item I can send you out of the prize box.
The winner is Ryan Palmer! Congrats! E-mail me your address so I can send this out to you.
Fear not, people… I will be doing this again. I have some ideas for it, too. I want this to become a feature I run every few weeks, so keep watching for it!
