But it's now well into August, and high-time we get the new Discussion Board up and running. Happily, Ravinia has just announced its new three-part contest, so we have something great to hang a new thread on!
Lord of the Rings Photo Caption Contest
In celebration of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra's presentation of The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring on Aug. 18 and Aug. 19, Ravinia presents a caption contest! Check back every few days for a new photo to comment on! The person who submits the funniest/most imaginative caption will receive a prize package from Ravinia. One GRAND PRIZE winner will receive two (2) pavilion tickets and a Blu-Ray Box Set of the Trilogy, in addition to the prize package.
ENTER BY TWITTER OR EMAIL: Tweet your submission by using a hash-tag of #RFLOTR1 or email us your submission to email@example.com with subject "LOTR Caption 1" or by clicking here. ALL EMAIL SUBMISSIONS MUST BE 135 CHARACTERS OR LESS.
If your Tweet does not appear within about one hour, check your spelling of the #RFLOTR1 tag, and make sure that your tweets are not set to private. If your email submission does not appear within 24 hours, double check the email address. If your email submission is rejected, you will receive an email explaining why.
GOOD LUCK. And may the force be with you…oh wait, that’s something else.
The first caption-able picture is, of course, above. Be sure to visit the official Ravinia LOTR Contest Site in order to keep up with the latest.
And don't forget that I'll be signing The Music of the Lord of the Rings Films at 6:45 p.m. before the concerts on both the 18th and the 19th. Look for me in Ravinia Gifts, the official gift shop. I'll also be in attendance at the performances both nights as well (no sign-and-dash for me!), so come say "hello!"
