Time for a new Picture contest!!! Let's stretch the Gallery's legs!

This contest is a short one, so time is of the essence.

The theme for this contest is 'Old Man (or woman) Winter!'

We're looking for the funniest and/or most creative ways to enjoy or use your boat in the winter. The boat does NOT have to be in the water and pics with snow or ice are encouraged!! Pics can be from the past or present but we do ask that they be your pics and not from somewhere else on the internet.

The contest ends March 1st so Hurry up and get those entries in!

The contest will be judged by a group of MIT trained, Govt Qualified, Chaparral Certified Owners Club Forum Picture Contest Judges!!

The winner will receive a goody box of 3m & Starbrite boating supplies and some misc Chaparral goodies! 2nd place will receive 2 Chaparral Window Decals.

May the games begin!!

*note: Please use the Owners Club Gallery to post your pictures.

Void where prohibited and all that.

Above was the first sprinkling of snow here in Jan. I swear that house across the block look like a flame thrower on the roof.

This is this month:

Wish I could partake in this, but I don't have access to my boat this time of year. She's tucked away inside a secured barn for another 45 days or so... :mellow:

Love the gallery picture of "Glory" in the inflatable in the snow. I was thinking of doing something similar with my kayak, then building a snowman inside with the paddles in "hand", but couldn't muster up the ambition. :beer-7687-1:
