Sweet Spots Contest: Deadline Oct. 6, need 246 more to beat top dog


Good morning;

I entered a Baja-related video in a "Sweet Spot" contest sponsored by Mountain Equipment CO-OP, a Canadian retailer:

http://www.mec.ca/Apps/sweetSpots/video_detail.jsp?FOLDER%3C%3Efolder_id=2534374302888270&mvs_id=541&activity_cd=wate&bmUID=1280242850070< /a>

There is a prize for the best video and I will need quite a few votes to win. If you like this Baja sweet spot or have some sympathy for windsurfers, or at least like the great dog in the video, please vote. And, yes - it's not the biggest wave, but it is very sweet!

If I win big $$$, I'll post notice of a local get together (1st round on me, but rememer the prize money is in Canadian dollars:lol:) for Nomads next sailing season. But most importantly, I'll buy a helmet cam and get some filming lessons so I can get the action and music in properly next season!

Whether I win or not, I make a donation to ALMA the local dog rescue, honor the Cape Cod sailor in the video with one of Leo's Margies.

So take a wave break and have a smooth-sailing day!

Thank you so much!

That will make at least 4 towards beating the person who has 88 in the aqua sports category, as I have voted for myself and should be able to convince my husband to vote as well!

I see voters will get an e-mail from the contest organizers and will also need to confirm they want to vote with a click of a mouse. Thanks for taking another step!

OK, I voted and then confirmed it. Others need to confirm their vote for it to count. Only see 2 votes in there so far.

Love the song and the beach scene. Oh, and the dog too.

Hola, Bob and thank you!

I spend as much time worrying about the beach dogs as worrying about the wind!

I hope to spend some time helping the local shelter this year and will probably fall in love many times with all the lovely wandering and rescues ones and adopt another family member!

Until I have a faster connection, I can only watch the video is tiny pieces----but you say there is a great dog there, so I will believe you. :biggrin:

So one more vote has been added.

Looking forward to enjoying the full video
