VF17 - Learning to fly

Sat Oct 23, 2010 9:24 am

Wow, I'm always amazed by the generosity of people.... We have got a great prize for this round, something everybody would love to have in their 'A' bag.

I'm not sure how best to use the prize hence the poll. I need the results of the poll by tommorow evening when I will giving out full details...

It may take it a while to get my head round the website thing....but once I've worked it out I'll keep it updated.

Let's listen to your other suggestion.

I'm not sure about the most improved flyer option, since this would seem to rule out new entrants.

I still think the random draw is a valid option, since it has the most pulling power for bringing entries in. The rounds with the best prizes always tend to have the most entrants and the randomness of the prize allocation is a significant factor in this IMO.

For me : random draw... as I don't see VF as a competition, but as a project shared by different pilots in different places.

And, it supposed we make it for pleasure, fun, and not for winning...

Random draw has worked for me in the past, so why not? ;-)

Well that's made it clear! As you will have seen already the prize will be drawn from all entrants.
