The Hilux Club decided to run a competition for the best trip report posted this holiday season.
All you have to do is post your trip report with pictures in the trip report section.
If you do not post your trip report in your own unique new topic it will not be evaluated.
By the end of January we will create a poll where members can vote for their favorite trip report.

The winner will win:
If a paid up Hilux Club member:
1. The next year's membership complimentary
2. A 160l/min compressor, compliments 4x4Direct

If the winner is not a club member he/she will win:
1. Complimentary one year Hilux Club membership
2. A Badger Tyre Deflator , compliments 4x4Direct

Members can now vote at:
http://www.hilux4x4.co.za/views/viewtop ... 57&t=43351

I also sent out an email via the forum to get everybody's attention for voting.

The 4 guys who submitted reports, how long time do you think is fair to keep the poll open?
3 days or a week?

One week maybe? It will allow some users to thoroughly read over the coming weekend as sometimes it is difficult to read during the week due to work commitments.
