As always I've failed in my bid to get a computer controlled lights as the winner of the Bendigo lights comp. The winner was the same winner as last year and was also the only local lights that got written up in the paper for the month of Decmeber. http://www.bendigoadvertiser.com.au/story/2782459/back-to-back-lights-win/?cs=80 . I did however make it into the Bendigo Advertiser "video" with my house/lights appearing at 1:31 to 1:47 and 1:56 to the end http://www.bendigoadvertiser.com.au/story/2775671/merry-christmas-to-our-readers-and-clients-video/?cs=2603
Thanks to all that voted for me.
Geez really!! They should do what our local area does and eliminate previous year winners from the competition.
Really....once you've won it, what buzz is it to win again.
I wonder if the URL on one of your photos was seen as commercial and worked against you?
Sorry Alan, I know the feeling. Once had 100k+ lights in my yard and the winner had some lights around their pillars. Found out the woman judging took her 2 kids and got them to pick the ones they liked. Sucks but hey lots enjoyed my lights.
I heard 2 kids about 7 yrs old at the shops arguing whose lights were better, my lightshow or the the ones up the street. What would kids know anyway. Mine was clearly the best haha
But seriously though I don't enter Christmas lights comps cause the best never wins and I hate to lose.
ohh, the one sided competition thing, well, that happens in EVERY town.
here too, 1 guy had a "can't be beaten display", but well, in what was discovered as an inside the judges friends loop, the judges friend claimed 1st, 2nd, and 3rd prizes on 3 separate houses decorated by him and his family.
the judge let them decorate their house too.
that was my first entry into the local competition in the newbies category, i lost that to a old POS car parked in the front yard with 4 strings of lights around it, a santa sitting in the drivers seat and some icicles on the roof.
wasnt happy jan, but hey, cant beat the competition if they are p***ing in peoples pockets.
all we can do is be happy with what we have, and do it for the sake of the kids and their families at a happy time of year.
enjoy it all and lets get 2015 rolling on already
Just wanted to Say thanks that all that voted for me. I won
Now I can afford to update with a you beaut radio transmitter.
Well done John.
In addition to a transmitter make sure that you make up a nice sized "tune to" sign or run the details over your matrix regularly.
