Default Soliciting ideas...

... for some more culture award topic/competition/whatever.

My originality only goes so far... looking for some ideas for the next culture award...

(C'mon... keep it generic... none of this "first person to drive around Hawaii wins" sort of idea...)

Most BFT referrals per [timeframe]

Most people moved at highway speeds on a Vegistroke

Biggest / heaviest load hauled by VS

Coolest picture of truck / background (truck in front of old faithful anyone?)

Best D2 or WVO milage

Cleanest tailpipe

I like those, plus here's three more:

1) Most creative use of a cubie

2) Most interesting veg tank re-filling pic

3) Hottest babe/dude in frame with a veg-related pic

First two are wide open to subjective interpretation (making the participant snivel/whine factor go up... making for interesting judging). The third you might have to recruit a female judge for dude judging... unless Clay and Snake are comfortable in that arena, of course.
