The Rules
« on: November 03, 2023, 03:10:41 AM »
Hi folks,

Here are the Rules of the British Commonwealth Group Build:

  • Have Fun!!!
  • As the name implies, the idea is to create something with some linkage to the British Commonwealth.  this could be a real world creation, something from an expanded/different Commonwealth or something that somehow references it.  If need be ask me.
  • Both real world or whiff are welcomed and encouraged. Any medium - so physical models, Pixels/profiles and stories (and anything else if you can think of it) are all welcome.
  • Creativity encouraged as is collaboration
  • Duration is from 3 Nov 2023 to 31 Jan 2024 25 Feb 2024.  An extension may be granted, but only a short one and only if the Moderator (me) feels like it.  (Bribes welcomed on this front.)
  • Physical creations and pixels/stories will be judged separately
  • Any questions are to be directed to the Moderator (me again...sorry!)
  • See rule 1

Regards,

Greg

What? You missed the entire "What If..." Sig? :icon_surprised:

They were in Hall 2, I believe. ???

Too far for me to venture but Brian (buzzbomb) was carrying the flag for Australia. :smiley:

Gutted, it was there,  Hall 1.

I think I was a bit overwhelmed by the amount of stuff on show, Plastic overload I think. It's the first exhibition I've been to since the 70's

Missed a couple of aisles in that corner

Maybe next year. I'll look at the index !

Admittedly, I could too.  Therefore a ~2wk extension is hereby granted.  New finish date is Sunday 18th Feb.
