An Introduction

Well you know who I am, but some of you may be wondering, why do this Comrade? Well for a long time I've seen ingenuity all around me, throughout my life, and I'd like to (try) to install that sense throughout the GB&C. There will be prizes, what they are wont be revealed at this time, so without further adieu, here are...

The Rules/Questions

Questions


Q - What exactly is the purpose of this competition?

A - To build/mod something that is unique/works/and installs ingenuity in the rest of us, THAT'S what it's about.

Q - I'm not that great at building/modding, what CAN I do?

A - ANYTHING! The point here is again creating/modding something, to make sounds/functions that nobodies ever thought of! I don't care if it's a Ice Pack Pic, just try!

Q - What date's should I need to know?

A - For now, only one; July 9th, signups will close, and you'll be left out, so signup!

Q - What's in it for me?

A - Probably something pretty cool, a learning experience and maybe even some prizes

Q - What kinds of categories are their?

A -

- GB&C RMOGC Categories -
1. Builds
a. Instruments
b. Pedals
c. Other
d. Mods (All mods counted under same category)

Q - What about a rubric on how we will be judged?

A -

Creativity/30 - How creative is it?
Functionality/45 - How functional is it? (How well does it work?)
Appeal/25 - How appealing is it? (Why and what would make me buy this)

The Rules

1. The end product of your build/modification must be different than started.

2. No team efforts shall take place

3. Deadlines are deadlines, meet them or miss out

4. No making popular known modifications to your equipment unless you want a deduction in the Originality category of the rubric.

5. Please have fun

I can has judge? Plox?

When's the deadline anyway? If it's far enough away, i might be able to complete my 3d mockups of that trem of mine finally. Though, i dont know if a computer model would count in this.

Regardless, I'll stick with wanting to be a judge for now

Alright, sweet. I wouldn't be able to build anything though, i currently dont have access to a mill, plus it would cost a pretty penny in materials.

You'll find whisky very different, but try it and you'll grow into it, soon you and whisky are one, but still two, lovers dancing across a frozen lake under moonlight, wrapped in honey and warmth.


Sums up whisky perfectly

I'm in I guess. I have a couple of things that are about to be built so I'll enter one of them. If I can get the wood and crap for my Kay amp clone's cab then I'll enter that. otherwise I have a pedal I'm revisiting.

Are clones allowed? if not then would several part substitutions count as a mod?
