RE: RC Surfer
The interest is growing : )
A one off comp is fun, but a year long comp would be an on-going event which will eventually crown a champion...
To be the the "World RC Surfing Champion" requires more than just a one off video or picture submission. It requires a structured competition with numerous events, an unbias referee, throughout an entire year and at the end the winner on points takes the crown and the title.
The referee needs to be someone who is NOT a competitor and is unbiased in his or her scoring (all competitors need to accept the results and if they feel a result is bias, then **** will hit the fan and the comp will be over)
Barrels can not enter the comp if he is the ref. Curly can not be ref as he will benefit financially from the footage and still images. Also, curly may not want the winner to be footage of a home-made rc surfer as that is not what he sells. He sells the 26" and will want footage and pics of that sized board to sell his product (just thinking from every angle, so take no offence)
Who will be the ref??.... David Reese, the founder of the sport would be fitting, but then he can not take part...
We need to work this all out soon as the year is fresh. If Barrels wants just a one off comp, then no prob. But if that is the case, lets get the year long comp started ASAP and we can decide on a prize later. If not being "World Champ" is enough.
Everyone, get involved and lets resolve this in a week!
