Hi All,

I've thought up a fiendish contest for you all to have a go at :

- Post a picture on this thread of you reading TG Mag in a weird and wonderful location. Doesn't have to be far away, just somewhere unusual, interesting or funny. Best picture in my opinion wins.

Rules :

- No porn / nudity / swearing
- No massive files, it must fit with the Final Gear rules
- Special bonus if it's a non-UK edition of the mag
- Special bonus for a pic including a celebrity
- Contest runs until August 31st (to give you a chance to take pics on your summer holidays)
- No 'special pleading' PMs

This is not an official BBC contest, the usual disclaimers - it's just a bit of fun. I'll decide the winner..

Prize? A TG Mag goodie bag which may or may not include Ferrari soundcards, mouse mats, cool wall magnets and any other crap I've got in my cupboard.

Good luck!

Aren't you awesome :D Best place to do this (if you can't get TG Mag locally) is at the airport. And while your there, find someone famous!

Just one thing TGUKGLM, i know it's your idea, but wouldn't it be more fun to make it a poll at the end and everyone chooses the best. Maybe you could just select a few of the best to then make the poll.

Just a thought 8)

Perhaps that would be better ... but I wanted to try and capture a 'Top Gear feel' so in true Jeremy fashion I'm going to decide and whatever I decide will be right.

Good suggestion though. :)

How about you can use a sign with Top Gear wrote on it but only if you live in a country where the magazine is not available. Just a little suggestion so no one is left out.

Nope, has to be copies of the magazine only. If you don't have a local edition, you need to buy a copy of the UK mag from your local airport or international bookstore.

It's available in most countries .... :)

I've never seen one,but then again I never looked for one really...
If I get one I'm gonna take it to where Jesus first walked on water, put it on a small piece of wood and make it the second thing to walk on water there haha.

Heh, good idea, but I fear the mag may slowly disintegrate underwater, ruining your local swimming pool's drainage system.

As to the question - you can get disposable underwater cameras for around ?8 a pop...I got mine from a larger Boots store [UK only, I guess]. Or you can get a cover for your normal camera. I've got that too - one of these, the 'compact camera case' one. Served my digicam and mobile nicely on a kayaking expedition.

I am already thinking up ideas, though no strokes of brilliance yet...


edit - what does the GL in your name stand for, TGUKGLM? I can guess the rest is "Top Gear UK something something Magazine"...

good, I've been wanting an excuse to go 100 miles to my nearest Borders to pick up a Top Gear issue.

And I know I haven't been here for a while, but wouldn't this be a good sticky?
Just a suggestion
