Competitive Winter Picnic 2014 – Thanks and Winners!
Thank you for being part of Competitive Winter Picnicking! Seeing people having that much fun out side in 30 degree temperatures is really something.
Competition was fierce, but the weather was relatively forgiving, so we had that going for us, which was nice.
I’ve put up the team portraits here:
And my low budget, super quiet aerial photography of the event (aka a gopro on a stick) can be found here [and yes, they could use an edit…]:
I’d really enjoy it if you sent me links to any pictures / videos / write ups you may have done. Or just send me a note with thoughts/ideas/improvements.

Big thanks to Prospect Park for the permit to use the park, and to my fellow judges. Having a crack team to work with always makes things a joy! I could not have done it without you. (We needed at least that many stomachs for all of the bribes!)
That was a lot of fun! Let’s do something again sometime soon!
