View Full Version : Olympic Athon??

07-20-2012, 10:22 AM
Anyone up for an Olympic Athon?

I was thinking a different "discipline" each day for the daily competition - but all arts would be welcome all days.

I will send a prize to the first winner - that person will send to the next day's winner and so on.

For disciplines I'm thinking different crafts, colours, themes.

Are you in shape? :jiggy:

07-20-2012, 11:54 AM
How many days would it be? I will surely peek in and get something done for it!

07-20-2012, 12:11 PM
I'm always up for an Athon. Sounds fun.

07-20-2012, 12:24 PM
I have trained for the Olympic athon the last few weekends, so I am ready :)

Hopefully I'll be able to attend.

I have a hospital appointment in london the day of the opening ceremony. That should be fun trying to get there by train lol

The Olympics begin July 27 and ends August 12 - so plenty of time to participate;)

My deepest sympathy, @adifferentstory!!!

Maybe luck will be with you. (Or the Force?) When Salt Lake had the games, we heard so many nightmares about traffic being bad so a lot of Utahns left town and actually traffic was pretty good. :)

I'm in.

07-20-2012, 01:29 PM
This sounds interesting. :)

07-20-2012, 01:34 PM
I'm sure to be able to participate!

07-20-2012, 02:12 PM
oh yeah! :jiggy::jiggy::jiggy:

07-20-2012, 06:15 PM
I'll be there

07-20-2012, 06:43 PM
I'll be at a family reunion when the Olympics start, but if the a-thon goes for the entire time, I'll be around. :)

Or maybe a Gold, Silver and Bronze. LOL :D

07-20-2012, 10:00 PM
I'm in for another marathon.

07-20-2012, 10:18 PM
Okie Dokie! You can add my name. Can't promise I'll be here ALL of that time though. But will contribute whatever I can.

07-20-2012, 11:07 PM
Should be able to get some stuff done. Will be having an operation mid-athon, but hope to be able to craft if I'm not hurting too much.

07-20-2012, 11:10 PM
I hope you have a quick recovery Jensaz.

I did originally want to award gold, silver and bronze prizes each day - but then I did the math... :D I like the idea of a prize for someone who posts every day - in accordance with the day's theme.

I forgot to request for co-hosts in the initial post. I will be around every day but I dont expect co-hosts to be.

07-21-2012, 02:47 AM
Mooncastle - I would be happy to help co-host this side of the world :D

07-21-2012, 05:36 AM
I could co-host from over here.

07-21-2012, 01:54 PM
I'm afraid that I'll be without the internet most of the days and the days when I have it, I'll be working all the time. I hope that I'll have more time in September and October.

07-22-2012, 11:05 AM
sorry summertime...too busy, can not commit myself now.

07-23-2012, 12:41 AM
Thank you for the co-host offerings - both here and via PM.

I'll start the official thread today or tomorrow - then you can see which disciplines there will be and on which days - so you can plan ahead;)

07-23-2012, 12:59 AM
This sounds like a lot of fun! Count me in!

07-23-2012, 11:31 AM
I will surely try and create some art during that time.

07-24-2012, 05:29 PM
I think I'm up for this. Thanks for the invite Sharlene. Have to see what the specifics are first.

07-24-2012, 05:35 PM
Sharlene-Thanks for the heads up! We are taking a short vacation from Aug 1 - 10 but I will certainly drop in and participate when I can! Have fun!!

07-24-2012, 05:37 PM
I forgot to ask - Any hints on what the art / themes are for the first couple of days?? I have some time on Thursday to get ready! Thanks!

07-24-2012, 05:59 PM
I was also wondering what the themes might be?

07-24-2012, 06:16 PM
I made some room in my gallery yesterday. :cute:

07-24-2012, 06:40 PM
I'm glad to see some are getting ready for the fun.

07-24-2012, 06:49 PM
This does sound fun! And heaven knows I have plenty of atcs, chunkies, and moos to get done for swaps, whats one or two extra just for fun. Count me in!

07-24-2012, 09:48 PM
Just back from a 4 day training course and this sounds wonderful! I'll be there. . . er. . here.:wacko:

I will try and fit some "a-thon" time this weekend, or at least during the games! I can't leave Sharlene hanging for the whole 2 weeks!!

07-24-2012, 11:30 PM
Thanks, Patti. I'm working out on my creative juices, getting lots of rest and getting ready for the Olympics-.Athon. Olympics here we come.

07-25-2012, 01:08 AM
Sounds like fun, I haven't done an A thon in forever it feels like.

07-25-2012, 02:39 AM
I'm sorry I didn't get around to post the official thread yesterday. Summer has finally found Denmark so I spent the day outside:)

I'll go start it now - with themes and all:D
