This is the thread for the discussion of our second challenge for the year 2006... the Tournament de Tombstone. The focus of this contest is building a tombstone.

I'm looking for some input as to what rules and guidelines we should have for this one. I'm thinking a price limitation, maybe a size limitation and possibly one other limitation to make this a bit of a challenge.

Jeff has also offered to donate another prize for this one. Do we want to do this one for a prize, or just limit that to the $20 Challenge (which will be repeated again next year)?

Feel free to post all your thoughts and ideas and then I'll formulate the rules thread on April 15th. This thread will remain open through the duration of the contest much like the thread for the $20 Prop Challenge thread did.

Epitaphs or not could be a rule.
Could be. I'd be inclined to go with no epitaphs... see who can impress everyone the most with an epitaph-free tombstone. Any thoughts?

Sounds good. About the price though paint can get a little bit expensive.
Remember, paint will be pro-rated just like in the last challenge. So you only add the amount of paint you actually use to your total.

I understand paint being prorated, but spray paint is hard to tell how much is left.....It is for me anyway. Oh is ok to make whole tombstone from wood?

You might want to clarify if it can be a monument or tombstone or headstone etc. There are a few differences. Maybe you could add a few points if your tombstone makes reference to Unpleasant Street. LOL.

You know me I have already been working on mine. It might not win but at least I have a tombstone built.

Ok, we'll make it a straight-up standard tombstone contest... no obelisks, crypts, monuments, etc... just standard tombstones.

How about a size restriction? Like say, no taller than 36"?

Whatever you like. I think width will be a "self-controlling" sort of thing as a tombstone that's too wide may look a little bit ridiculous.

Sure, as long as it'll be shorter than 36". For photos of the tombstones, I'll want at least one photo with a ruler or tape measure to show the height. That photo must show the ENTIRE TOMBSTONE and the ruler/tape measure in the same shot.
