Happy 9th Birthday SCF!

http://www.sportscardforum.com/picture.php?albumid=1962&pictureid=18007

The Hockey team will be hosting a two part contest this year.


CONTEST 1
Starting at 3pm (-5gmt), there will be a trivia contest in the chat. We'll have 99 trivia questions. For each one you get right, you'll get 1 point.


CONTEST 2
Show off a card of a player who has the same birthday as SCF. BUT you have to show it off in a way that best shows the idea of "BIRTHDAY!".

You can edit the image, or take a photo while holding something birthday-ish. whatever you want! A full list of players who have a birthday on March 3rd can be found here:
http://www.hockey-reference.com/friv/birthdays.cgi?month=3&day=3
Here's a list of those players with at least 30 games played:
Rk Player Born From To Pos
1 Brian Leetch 1968 1988 2006 D
2 Kelly Miller 1963 1985 1999 LW

If you don't have a card of any of these players, but still want to celebrate the birthday, just post a card that screams "BIRTHDAY!". The SCF hockey team will then vote on the card image that best shows the idea of "BIRTHDAY!" with preference going to players from the list above.

If your card best shows "BIRTHDAY!", you'll get 7 points. The runner up will get 5 and third place will get 3 points.


PRIZES!

At the end of the day, We'll count up your points from the Trivia and the "Birthday Card" contest. For every point you earned today, you'll get 5 CC. The person with the most points, instead of CC, will win.... a Panini Dominion Jimmy Howard Autograph (/9 for SCf's 9th Brithday)! The Detroit goalie who was drafted in the 2003 Draft, the same year that SCF was created!


Rules:
Staff are not eligible to participate in this contest.
If you have received a major infraction (3 points or more) in the past 30 days, you are also not eligible

So go a head and post your birthday photos here! The hockey staff team are heading over to the chat to get the trivia started! See you there!

Yes. :cool:

If it helps you when designing your cards, the Hockey staff has been known to really enjoy subtle clues and references.

Cheers,

TRvia will start shortly. Very few contestants, so if you want a good shot at a prize, come on in.
