Default Blowout's 2016 THREE-POINT CONTEST!

Hello all!

In the spirit of the holiday season, I would like to introduce to you the
1st annual Blowout three-point contest!!




The PRIZE you will be playing for is a $100 Gift Certificate to Blowout!


*We have mod approval, this contest is good to go!


Rules of the CONTEST:

The Blowout member with the most made three-point shots in 60 seconds wins the contest. The member must submit a video of their highest recorded attempt before the deadline.

Before the 60 second timer starts, the member MUST identify himself / herself with his / her Blowout username, then proceed to start shooting WITHOUT any cutting of footage or editing whatsoever. This is to assure that the contest entry videos are legitimate.

For example, your video should look something like this. "Hi my username is _________ from Blowout" (if easier you may also hold a sign that legibly and clearly states your Blowout username) - then, in an uninterrupted take, you or the timer must start the 60 second timer as soon as you start shooting.

The timer will begin as soon as the first shot is released. Shots that are still in the air after the 60 seconds are up will still count as good. Timing can be done in a variety of ways - you may have a person timing on the side or you may choose to do it yourself via a self-timer or timestamping your video. I will be verifying the time of any videos that are unclear. Note that you cannot just splice 60 seconds of your footage in which you made the most three-pointers as you will need to introduce your username at the beginning of each contest attempt.

Your video will need to clearly show that you are behind the three-point line. If it is obscure, you will NOT be given the benefit of the doubt. If you are clearly behind the line for your contest but step on the line for a couple of shots or it is unclear whether you were behind the line, I will simply subtract those shots from your total score. I will act as the final judge on whether your submission is valid.

You must utilize the physical three-point line of the gym / park you are shooting at. That means if the court has a high-school regulation three-point line, you may use that line for your contest. If you are in a college or NBA-size regulation court and they only have one three-point line, you MUST use that 3-point line for your contest.

You can only shoot with one ball. You may have one rebounder or you may choose to rebound for yourself.


RULES OF SUBMITTING:

Your video entries should be YOU, the Blowout member, shooting and not your distant 3rd cousin who plays D3 basketball. Since there isn't really any way to verify this rule, please just use the honor system on this.

Contest will run exactly one week from Saturday, December 17th to Saturday, December 24th. Contest will start at 12:01am Central Time on the 17th, and end exactly at 11:59pm on the 24th. You must upload and submit your video before 11:59pm or it will be void.

You MUST have at least 100 posts OR have done 1 transaction with a member here to enter this contest.

Each member will only get ONE entry. You cannot edit your post with another video and you cannot submit multiple videos on a later post.

You may upload your video to any reliable video streaming provider, ie. Youtube, Vimeo, Streamable, etc and provide the link or embed the video in your post which will count as your official submission.

In the event of a tie, the member who posted EARLIER will win the contest. This is added incentive to post earlier instead of waiting until the last minute to post your entry in hopes of 'sniping' a victory.



Lastly and most importantly, HAVE FUN! This is meant to be a fun contest and my way of giving back to the forums.

If there any concerns or questions, please make sure to ask me before you post so you can make sure you meet all of the requirements and rules.

Good luck to all!

The Guinness World Record is ten 3-pointers in a minute (without a rebounder) so not only are you playing for $100 gift certificate but the Guinness World Record! (Though obviously you're not actually playing for the record as you would need a representative there.)

After watching that video, I think it'd be awesome if no rebounder is a part of the contest. I'm confident I can get to 6 in a minute without a rebounder. More than that will be tough.

Was thinking the same thing! (Either way it's possibly the greatest contest idea ever!)

I considered it but i decided it would be too difficult to film by yourself and also verify that every shot was behind the line seeing as how you would be running all over the place w/o a rebounder. Grab a friend and hit up the gym!

Hopefully this works...
Sunday mornings I play ball with guys from 18-70 and this was after the normal 2 hour run on Sunday. I'm the tall blonde kid and Dave is the rebounder, props to him for hustling. Also a shout out to D (he's recording).
If it matters, I'm 6'0" and weight about 155. I play the post majority of the time and don't do the jumpers unless mid range. Favorite move - drop step and up and unders.
Here it goes anyways...

more like kyle singler. i've been called dirk and porzingod by a lot of the guys lol.

my old teammates know i'm a great post man with great post up moves. i was called white howard, in reference to dwight. i've gotten marc gasol a few times as well.

i decided to just do the shooting once. i figured i could re shoot it 50 times and get a higher score, but i was like fugg it. all is fair and i decided to just do it. i'm sure someone will kick my butt and reshoot 50 times to get 10 3's, but i figured just do it and be honest with it.
