One thing that I have discovered over the last 10 years at PomPrint is that if an idea doesn’t work, then replace it with something else until you are ready to try it again in a modified format. You will see from this bold statement that I am not the type of person who gives up easily, even when an idea that I think will work falls flat on its face. I tend to store the idea, work on it, and then bring it back again much bigger and better. It is for this reason that I have given our weekly “Where’s Waves?” competition a resting and replaced it with a new ‘draw’ type of contest on a temporary basis.
“Where’s Waves?” did not, for some reason, give us the kind of response for which we had hoped, as we received only a handful of entries each week, and even these were from the same people.
This having been said, I intend to continue the weekly ‘Town Recognition’ contest, especially for those of you who did actually enter, in the hope that it might start to snowball off the back of the new one.
Starting this week, I will be creating a new “Puzzle” category for items such as this, which are designed for entertainment purposes only. In other words, “Where’s Waves?” will live on in a new guise. Each week a location show will be uploaded on a Friday, and the answer will be given the following Friday. You will be invited to submit answers so that I can continue to gauge its appeal. If it takes off well, it will be reintroduced as our ‘official’ weekly contest.
Ironically, the two members who ‘fight it out’ on a weekly basis both live outside the area, one in St. Cyrus (near Montrose) and the other in Plymouth!! I would therefore like to extend our thanks to Norman and Nigel who entered in to the spirit of the competition!!
The answer to last week’s “Where’s Waves” was Waves have been to Fetterangus, which was, once again, correctly identified by our Devonian following. Well done Norman!!
