The Rules

Here are the official rules for all Blogville Olympic Events.  In order to be consistent with all other hosts, and more importantly, to be fair, all rules will be strictly enforced.  Any and all complaints should be addressed to the Olympic Committee at:  frankiefurter(AT)wildblue(DOT)NET

  • Photos of your athlete participating in any event will be accepted ONLY from July 9th until  midnight July 18th (in the host's time zone - in this case Mountain Standard Time, USA). THE OLYMPIC Committee must insist that all athletes be entered by Midnight July 18th.  Complain to FRANKIE (above) if you have problems with the deadline. 

  • Do to space/handling considerations, no videos can be accepted. Please size your photos for easier handling. If you send more than 1 photo of your athlete, I cannot guarantee they will both be used, it depends on the number of athletes who participate in the event.

  • All pics must be emailed to the specific event host and all athletes in the photo must be identified.  Also give your email address (in case of problems or questions, it will not be published), and a link to your blog site (if applicable).

So really, those are some pretty easy rules, huh?  Mostly, we just want everyone to have fun, be creative, and participate in LOTS of events!  This is the official site for the Marathon Chewing event.  It will take place on August 3rd. In order to enter this event, email your photos within the above time frame to cecampbell(AT)msn(DOT)com.  There will be two categories:

Authorized Chewing:  In this category the athlete will be shown chewing a lawful object (any object permitted by the peeps: toys, ice, chews, bones, etc). 

Free Lance Chewing:  In this category, the photo must show the athlete in the process of chewing an unauthorized item OR (and more likely) the athlete in the photo with the already-been-chewed unauthorized item.  Example:  If the athlete chews up their peep's favorite shoes, the photo need not catch the action but would just show the athlete in the photo with the chewed up object (looking innocent, guilty, proud, contrite, etc.).  To be clear, you need not run for the camera when you catch the athlete in the process of eating your prized possessions (although that would make a great photo - LOL) but it is NOT required!  Just capture the result of the activity and that is fine.

Prizes & Awards:  All athletes will be winners but there are no prizes or awards.  Blogville Olympic events are for entertainment purposes only.

So start getting ready, get those cameras ready, and when it's time (July 9th), start sending the pics to the specific site hosts.  Remember, there is a list with links of all events on the right side of this blog.  Makes it easy, eh?

Hi guys, I love this event because it is something Hunter is good at-both authorized and free lance. I think it is a very fun sport. Unlike you, are two good friends, Hunter doesn't like water, except to drink. On Friday I held him and ran through the outside of the sprinklers; he wasn't too happy but I know it made him feel cool.
Happy Days, Noreen & Hunter
