    An example of Tudy out and about:

    1) If you're not on Facebook, chances are you have some friend on BYC or elsewhere that are. Have them take some pics and submit & tag them to our Facebook page and either split, or give you the prize! [​IMG]
    2) Each person can only submit ONE picture
    3) Each person can get a maximum of ♠10 submission points by tagging up to 10 people in the picture. You can be in other peeps pics to help their chances of winning. Here’s an example:

    I have 5 friends with me and all 6 of us take a picture with Tudy. I would submit a pic to the BYC Facebook Page and tag all the others. I'd get 6 submission points. Another person in the group could also submit a different picture and tag all the others and get 6 submission points.

    Any questions, post them here.

    Have fun and please show Tudy a good time!! [​IMG]

    ------------ Updates ---------
    We’ve made a couple changes to the rules to open up the contest even more!

    2. You have to be 13+ and a member of Facebook to submit and/or be tagged in a picture.

    Please note: Even if you have a coop, you should totally still join the contest! If you win the coop you can always give it to someone else or you can get the next prize in the list!

    Quote:Yes, to receive "submission points" the people have to be on Facebook, like our BYC Page, and be tagged in the picture.

    Of course, you can have other peeps in the picture for fun if you want. [​IMG]

    THIS IS WAY COOL! Can we submit more than one pic if we go to different places? Like can me and my kiddos hit up TSC and our local feed store and then I submit the pics both times? Or can a person only submit one photo? It sounds neat, but I am a lil confused! [​IMG]
