So ive been provided with a choice of several of the best Windsurfing DVD's by a generous local shop (wink wink) and want to give a couple away as part of a contest. I've also got a whole pile of these Addicted to Ride DVD's to giveaway.

I want to get people to start submitting windsurfing locations at windsurfquest.net so that its full content potential can be met. Right now it has several in Texas and scattered accross the US and the world, but several areas are kinda empty. And NO I cannot sail at these places myself until I have a more mobile way of making a living.

So I am thinking - a definite prize giveaway for the contestant who submits the MOST windsurfing launch sites/locations. And then I am thinking a voting pool - where the submitters may (or may not) let everyone know about the location or locations they have put up on the website - and users can then vote that location UP.

The submitter who gets the mosted voted or top rated location withiin the contest time span ALSO would get a DVD giveaway (although it may be the same person).

I have the code setup and ready to go - just want to get any thoughts so that there is nothing I have not thought about. Got all these addicted to ride dvd's I could send to people for just participating - kinda worried about postage for that though, especially if 500 people participate ( unlikely).
