CONTEST ENTRIES in last name order...

Everyone may judge for a winner but all opinions must be submitted on or before May 31, 2010. Email your favorite to
  1. The theme is "27th Anniversary Model 100 Programming Contest." The Model 100 came to market March 1983, so the end date of each contest is March.
  2. You will note that it is not program specific, thus all program types and subjects are fair game.
  3. The end date is March 31st, 2010 ... unless a different date is agreed upon.
  4. The objective is to submit a fully functional program with a documentation file explaining your program goal, your approach and any use details necessary.
  5. After all the programs are submitted, I will set up a separate blog page for each program and doc file, wherein people may download the files, test them out, and then make their comment.
  6. Judging will be by all of us in a blog-style, wherein every one and any one can chime in about what they like and not like about each program ... comments, suggestions, etc.
  7. Each participant will receive a token of appreciation from Club 100. Not sure what it will be ... could be a blue bag, an AC adaptor, a coupon to a local pizza join ... I don't know yet.
  8. And lastly, a group of us will be called up on to select those programs that reflect something special for what they are. Programs thus, will be judged on their specific merits and not against each other.

These "select programmers" will get full billing as winners of that years' contest on the contest home page as well as the judges comments as to why their offering won special attention. Winner photos will be required. I might be able to provide a trophy to each of these individuals. There's a trophy shop here in town. I know the owner, Dave. We can work something out.

Model Ts Forever!
