Post subject: Tip Your Cap to the August '07 Screenshot Winners!

The time has come, the Turtle said, to talk of many things: Of shoes - and ships - and Sealing Wax, of Cabbages, and Kings.......

And, had famed author and rumored Flight Sim Enthusiast extraordinaire Lewis Caroll not have been interrupted by a Highly Massively Important CFS1 match on the evening he was writing the above, he also (I have it on good authority) would have had the Walrus bring up the subject of the 2007 Com-Central Screenshot Competition! Because that sly ol' Walrus does go on to mention boiling seas (no doubt from all the FIRE and SMOKE which was last month's Theme) and also there's the thing about pigs having wings after that, so he obviously musta had a lot on the ball.

But even though that's the best intro I could come up with right now, it's still all beside the point of course because no one on Earth at that time, and even up until THIS VERY SECOND, had any kind of inkling whatsoever of who would be named King of Kings and Premier Cabbage Of The Month (queue trumphant horn music) as the August 2007 Com-Central Screenshot Competition Winner(s) are announced!!!!

(let me know if that's just too much hoopla and I'll back it off next month!) Wink

Anyhowsomever, it's my pleasure to announce that by popular vote with a final rating of 4.875 out of 5, the double-duty WINNER of the August 2007, Picture Of The Month *and* also having taken advantage of last Month's "Smoke 'em" theme, is none other than.....

"Mayday! Mayday! Trailing Smoke!" by Manolo

And%20because%20therein%20lies%20a%20question.....can%20one%20pic,%20however%20good,%20win%20both%20the%20Picture%20Of%20The%20Month%20and%20the%20\"Theme\"%20category%20at%20the%20same%20time?%20%20Frankly%20I%20don't%20know%20but%20I%20tell%20ya%20I'm%20gonna%20say%20probably%20not,%20'specially%20if%20it%20means%20I%20don't%20get%20to%20celebrate%20more%20of%20the%20EXCELLENT%20screenshots%20that%20were%20contributed%20and%20keep%20namin'%20names!!!%20%20So%20my%20usual%20spur-of-the-moment%20decision%20is%20to%20say%20let's%20keep%20the%20party%20rollin'%20and%20give%20a%20few%20more%20slaps%20on%20the%20back,%20and%20say%20that%20this%20next%20fine%20pic%20stands%20as%20a%20second-place%20winner%20(in%20the%20\"Theme\"%20category%20alone)...with%20a%20final%20rating%20of%204.625,%20take%20a%20deep%20breath%20and%20don't%20get%20too%20much%20smoke%20in%20your%20lungs%20when%20looking%20at: \"In%20smoke\"%20by%20siskens But%20wait%20that's%20not%20all!!!!

And even more importantly - Many, MANY THANKS and words of appreciation and encouragement to ALL members who contributed by submitting their great pictures, and also contributed by voting regularly and making all this possible. Good job by all and let's keep it rollin'!!

MAN! If I'd only been willing to fire on a friendly, we'd have had smoke and I've have displaced that Dutch guy for second and put that funny lookin' push-me/pull-me plane in it's place! Laughing Well, we can't have blue-on-blue kills just for a virtual trophy so congratulations are in order to the winners for some great "shots" (since I couldn't take mine...concience wouldn't let me...and I won't commit fratricide for less that a big cash prize Wink ).

At least we got Armor Branch represented, the Combat Arm of Decision!

(I do hope that 11th Cav crew in the helicopter came out alright though!)

Winning in the tradition of an ancient tragedy..The warrior is applauded, the audiance is jubilant, the inevitable end of the usurper is at hand.The villain stands to lose due to his greed and cruelty. His victims are to be remembered forever after...A thousand years of victory lay ahead! Shocked In a last effort he sees his enemy is in smoke and going down.
"wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall."
Watch the Picture of the Day tomorrow 'cause you'll hear in your crackling virtual headsets: "Kraut smoking now!". So - all's well that ends well .

Friends, it's always great fun to participate in this contest. Congrats to the Great Winner: The Manolo Hail! and to our mudmoving firends heavily splattered but never battered : Hail!

And now for a cold beer and back to normal Wink

Aww its not too bad, last week I started writing the anouncement for next month's winner(s) and so far it's only averaging about 3 to 4 pages per day in growth, so it'll be manageable. You know you can compress folders, right?? Laughing
