Vote for Me!!!

Unread post by rodndtube » Thu Feb 16, 2012 1:12 pm

The voting has started and I need your vote!!! Our friends at the Surfing Heritage Foundation are running a fun contest, "Found It In The Archives." I am one of the four finalists, and now it's the public's turn to vote! The contest asked its participants to tell a brief story regarding something they found in the Surfing Heritage collection that had a significant impact on them. Read the stories at: http://www.surfingheritage.org/ . Don't forget to vote at the SHF site and on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/questions/3264 ... ?qa_ref=qd). Help an old paipo rider :)

I tried to vote more than once but could not outsmart the pollster.....even by closing and reopening. I am going to try on my other computer this afternoon. That should do the trick....I think? :D

Once the ballot stuffing at the Surfing Heritage Foundation webpage is challenged in the Supreme Court of Surfing there will probably be a ruling to use the Facebook results which reflects one vote per registered Facebook user... so, vote here: https://www.facebook.com/questions/3264 ... ?qa_ref=qd

Thanks!

Only 24 votes so far! At the risk of pissing off a bunch of non-surfing friends, I have spammed my contacts with shameless vote-begging.

Paipo Power!

Rod,

looks like you are just 2 votes behind now. It's a 2 horse race unless someone else makes a late surge.

On the Facebook site, which seems to be the only one recording vote updates right now, it is neck-and-neck between the Blue Machine and Paipo Boards (me). The Blue Machine seems to have a HUGE family network. I go up by several votes and then he closes in... and so last night I was up by 8 votes and this morning down by two.

Vote for me!!!

Thanks to all for your support -- and to my many other friends and to the many strangers that supported me on this quest! The winner will be announced on Feb 27th is my understanding -- the contest closed today -- a chap mustered 94 votes to my 74 votes, on Facebook, while another person led on the SHF site (not sure what happened over there as the vote counts seem to have froze about 2+ days ago) and the FB winner was running in second. A very worthy candidate wrote an article on Bell Helmets which garnered hardly any votes on either site which is surprising -- a very interesting essay in its own right and maybe the most illustrative of the extent of items in the SHF archives.

The SHF is well worth visiting if you are ever in the San Clemente/Orange County region:

We should do what they do in Chicago - bus people in, setup FB accounts for them, then give them a dollar and a cigarette in exchange for a vote.
