Badges will be generated in the near future, but to give an idea, they will be based off of this:


____________
10m I * * * I




____________
10m I * * 0 I



____________

Thanks for doing this Duck. The target made from something common is a great way to make participating easy and cheap. I'll definitely be taking part in this one,but it does remind me of something.......

HA, I think of that everytime the word badge comes up in conversation. I can't help myself from blurting it out. :)

Yup, a blonde and a brunnette.. of course not what you think. My 7 and 4 year old daughters playing to the side..   no bonus points for head shots so I had to make sure they were in check  :D

 

So are you setting up a thread for entries? When can I start?  :headbang:

 

You can start now, and you will place them here. I will update first post with the qualifiers.. and soon there will be something for you to display in your signature block

Video is funny, but was hoping for the original "we don't need no stinkin' badges" from the movie Sierra Madre.
