Its all about the experience.

I am sure that you will light the way for a lot of future female contestants who may be shy to enter.

And that is the last spot taken!

For those that read through this thread and still want to enter, remember that I will have two positions open on the day for those wishing to enter! first-come first-served!

All those that are entering, get yourselves to the main stage on Sunday by 11h30, so we can make sure you're all accounted for and we can get going! I will update the second post on this thread with the list of competitors!

Good luck everyone!

Hi Guys,

I saw only 10 contestants allowed to enter.

Erwin @thatlowlyfs_vapes is Vape con 2017 winner and he wants to enter.
I am on of the only female trickers and i too want to enter.

Why is it limited to 10 contestants there are a lot of trickers from CPT flying up.

VapeCon 2018 Vape Trick Competition !!
--- brought to you by ECIGSSA ---

ECIGSSA will be hosting the Vape Trick Competition at VapeCon 2018 on Sunday, 26 August at 12h00 at Heartfelt Arena, PTA (https://www.ecigssa.co.za/vapecon-2018-sat-sun-25-26-aug-rsvp-save-the-date.t46417/)

Can you do to vape what Messi does with a soccer ball (maybe not this year though)? Do you have what it takes to "wow" the crowds and walk away with some incredible prizes? If the answer is "yes" then it's time to sign up! If the answer is "maybe", then it's time to believe in yourself and sign up as well!


--- How To Enter ---
  • RSVP to this thread by commenting below with "I'm interested!" The first 8 valid spots secure it!
  • We are going to be limiting the total number of entrants to 10 vape trick enthusiasts. We have currently reserved 8 slots on the RSVP list here and an additional 2 slots for those that would like to register on the day. The RSVP list below is for yourself only. 1 entry per forum member only.
  • Those who would like to enter on the day need to register with @Stosta or one of the members of the Admin & Moderator team at the ECIGSSA stand before 11:00AM. No late entries will be allowed.
--- Rules ---
  • Contestants will each be given a number and will impress the judges with their tricks in a timed event. Each contestant will have one attempt lasting a total of 2 minutes at getting into the top 4.
  • The top 4 will then compete in a 3-minute display to determine the top 3 places.
  • You may use any atty, mod and build that you want. (Please ensure you are using safe batteries)
  • Each Contestant will be allowed to compete with their own juice of choice. Yes! You can bring your own juice.
  • Each contestant gets 1 attempt per round.
  • Judges will decide on the winning displays using the following criteria:
    • Variety
    • Quality
    • Uniqueness of tricks
  • Please guys, don't give the judges a hard time. Respect their decision. This is a fun event and the judging can be very tricky.
Please note that it is a big area and impossible to cut off the airflow completely. We will do as much as we can to limit it though. Remember that all contestants will face the same difficulties, and that the nature of the competition is aimed at good spirit and fun!


IM INTERESTED

Morning Guys!

Let me start off by thanking you for your interest in the Trick Comp, it is awesome that we have so many local trickers interested!

Due to the overwhelming requests for additional entries into the trick comp, the team has decided that we can add an additional 5 positions to Sunday's Trick Competition. We have a lot going on during VapeCon so unfortunately we are limited by time, however we have done a bit of shuffling to try and cater for additional entries.

These additional five positions will be made available to the first people that come and register with myself, or one of the other A&M team members at the VapeCon/ECIGSSA Stand on Sunday before 11h00. As we already have two slots available for on-the-day registration, that means that we can now take an additional seven entries.

Thanks for the interest @Ruan_VR .

All the reserved spots are taken, but the good news is that there are 7 on-the-day spots still available. These spots will be given to the first seven people that come see me at the ECIGSSA stand on Sunday and book one.

I would advise getting there early to do this because there seems to be a lot of interest in these spots.

Hi @Monica Hedder
Please read the post a few posts above (#42)
https://www.ecigssa.co.za/vapecon-2018-vape-trick-competition.t51720/page-2#post-707467

We have expanded it to 15 contestants :D

The main reason for the limited number is because of time constraints.

The Trick Competition was definitely a learning experience for me.

The first thing I learned was that tricking is alive and well here in South Africa. Not hearing much on tricking on the forums, I didn't expect to have many takers for the available positions. But I was absolutely inundated with requests to enter in this competition!

I learnt a lot over the weekend with regards to tricking, and how to set up a trick competition properly. I got to talk to a lot of the guys and girls involved in it personally, and they gave me a lot of advice and ideas as to what we can do with tricking in South Africa, and how we can take it further.

I had a brief chat with all our entrants while the judges were tallying up their scoring. But the system was loud so I just wanted to put it out here again in case anyone missed it. A huge thank you for you guys to entering and going up on stage. I know the conditions weren't ideal, but it was great to see that you guys took the blow and still got up to show us your incredible skills. So a massive thanks to you!

He's not on here, but I know that some of you on here are in touch with him, so please pass my thanks on to Zach from VGod once again. That man had a job to do, and he still took the time to help me out on so many occasions, and really stepped up to the plate big-time for me!

With all that said, we were treated to some spectacular displays, but in the end we could only have one winner. The way the finals played out was great, and the decision on placing was unanimous, so there were no grey areas!
