GO SLOW - READ EACH TRIP REPORT AND/OR WATCH EACH VIDEO LINKED BELOW - CHOOSE CAREFULLY

YOU HAVE ONLY ONE VOTE PER POLL - NO DO-OVERS ARE ALLOWED

The Trip Report Challenge First 3 Quarters 2013 USA West Coast nomination process finalists are below. I congratulate these finalists and have started the above poll for you to vote for "the best" in accordance with the following rules:

The three geographic regions are USA East Coast (includes Gulf), USA West Coast, and International. There will also be a prize for best video in each time period. The video may or may not be part of a trip report and thus a compilation video may qualify. Spearfishing has to be the primary subject of the video.

Please read carefully the rules linked here:

OFFICIAL RULES FOR THE SPEARBOARD BEST TRIP REPORT AND/OR VIDEO CHALLENGE (http://www.spearboard.com/showthread.php?t=166834)

Note the following member qualifications to vote from the official rules:

D. Voting is up to the voters; no one can force or rally a vote, please visit all nominated trip reports and/or videos and vote for the best in your opinion. Please vote based on quality of the report and/or video and not popularity of people, fish or areas that you are most familiar with personally.

You MUST have 50 posts to vote

and you can vote in all three regional polls in the two time periods per this rule:

all members with more than 50 posts are then able to vote one time for their favorite trip reports among the final nominations.

Be sure to vote in the other two regional polls for the two time periods linked here:

Please do not post in this thread to help assure compliance with this rule:

B. No rallying or mobilizing other members to second a nomination or vote for a finalist whatsoever is allowed either internally on Spearboard or externally. Any evidence of this may result in disqualification.

But, I may bump the voting poll threads to the top of "New Posts" periodically to remind members to cast their votes.

If you want to make a comment or ask a question that does not promote voting for your favorite finalist, please do it here in this thread at this link:

There will be a pool of prizes for the trip reports in three regions and the video winner. If the prizes are usable in all geographic regions, the four winners will try to agree which prize they want. If they can't agree, we will use a selection method like Rock –Paper - Scissors. Being awarded a prize should be a secondary consideration to the honor of being selected as the best trip reporter or video maker by your fellow spearfishing men and women.

As a bonus and because this is the first video challenge, we are giving away a special prize for the best video of the six video finalists (three each for the two time periods) in the challenge for 2013. As a video professional myself, I will be the final judge of the overall winning video.

The prize is the following custom hybrid speargun from Spearboard sponsor Impaler Spearguns. Company owner Jason is the outstanding new custom hybrid speargun designer who joined the community and marketplace in 2013.
