**WINNERS POSTED!** 1st annual RCGroups Pumpkin carving contest

This thread is to be used for the purpose of posting entries to the first annual (?) RCGroups pumpkin carving contest.

Here are the rules:
1. Only members eligible to post in OTD may enter.
2. Employees of RCGroups and their families may enter, but they can't win.
3. Carve your pumpkin with some RCGroups theme. Feel free to use your imagination.
4. No digitally enhanced photos please. Dave has ways to tell.
5. Winner picks one from a list of prizes to be posted later by Ms. Anne Marie Cross.
6. Judges will be the RCGroups staff. No attempt at anonymity will be made. No impartiality is guaranteed, but we will do our best to judge the entries on imagination and artistic merit.
7. Judges decisions are final.
8. Please keep this thread for contest entries only. If you want to comment on any entries you can make another thread for that.
9. If we have forgotten anything we reserve the right to amend the rules later.
10. Entry deadline is noon on 31 October.
11. HAVE FUN!

Here is Colleen preparing to hack on the defenseless family pumpkin.

I used Greg G. as my model last year.

After our air battle between the Baron in his triplane and Snoopy in his Biplane I claimed victory in the fight that was actually a draw. This is what Greg looked like after I made the claim. (This is not an entry as it is my carving from last year.) Moderator Mike

Here is my entry,

I was inspired by Burt Rutan and his team at Scaled Composites for succesfully winning the X-Prize. Its not exactly a conventional pumpkin carving but what can I say, I love airplanes,

I carve on Saturday

This is the model or subject matter for my pumpkin carving. A review of it being built can be seen in the GWS forum under the heading of Mr. Lin Magician. It is on the Halloween theme.

My V11 will 'carve up' the sky..
The problem is, I don't know if this is a 4s or 4p pack? Will it be too much for my Master 105 ESC? Plus, all this talk about round cells - where do I put the ESC????
