Ideas: Project X Competitions
David came up with this:
Post up potential projects that people could to strive towards. Denote some sort of entrance fee, and possibly seek sponsors of the projects to throw in additional funds and potentially items. Then who ever wins has the money donated to the charity of there choosing, and also recieves what ever items were donated. This could give people who are working on specific projects additional incentive to go in that direction, but more importantly it could give the hobby a positive PR oppourtunity. Rules could be made up for breeders at all levels to participate in other competitions as well. For example, you just make sure all participants start with the same level of genetics and first to get to what ever the project is wins. Then of course this site could also highlight the winners and the charity they gave to.
