All names will be checked on the line-up.
You will be introduced to the judges and told where to stand and face when on stage.
All attys will need to be fired before getting on stage and juiced up with the competition juice that will be provided.
--- Preliminary Round ---
The Cloud Chasing Competition will start punctually at 14:00pm
Entrants will make their way on stage in pairs.
Each will line up against the official "Cloud Meter" banner and have a chance to display their best Cloud.
Judges will score each entrant on distance and density of the Cloud.
The Top 8 Will then progress to the next round.

The remaining 8 entrants will compete back-to-back against each other in pairs.
The winners for each round will progress until we have positions for 3rd, 2nd and 1st place.
Prize giving will be done after the competition has been finalised.
getting pretty excited
Does this mean if you competing you have to be at vapecon by 11am ? Or can you come anytime before 2pm?
Are you limited to mech mods or can you use any device ?
I may be mistaken but there is no rule on what mod or rda you use. Only rule is have safe batteries that can handle your build.
You may use any atty, mod and build that you want. (Please ensure you are using safe batteries)
I think if you have already rsvp on the forum then anytime before 2 but if you want to enter on the day then before 11
Im in!! If not why not...

Hey @shaunnadan , I had to remove myself from the rsvp list! Im away for the week, and eventually had to stay an extra day so I might not even make Vapecon! My apologies of I messed up your count for the day - but hope a young hopeful can grab my spot!
just want to say thanks to all the entrants. this was an epic comp, and at some stages was very difficult to determine as there were some very close calls.
I would like to say that it was nice to meet old vape friends, and enjoy all the good specials that was at Vapecon.
I would like to say that i'm am very disappointed with the the Cloud chaser competition, and how it was conducted. I have gone through all the rules and no where did it say that you are not allowed to use RDTA's but 20min before the comp we get told that we could only use RDA's and we had to drain our liquids from our tanks if we wanted to compete. I came second last year with an Aspire Mega which is a tank mod. i had been prepping for 4 months for the cloud chasers comp only for the rule to be changed at the last minuet. This turned the cloud chasers into a RDA comp. This gave the ppl that wanted to compete with an RDTA a disadvantage as coils are prepared differently to an RDA. Even after stating the rules on the forum they still got changed.
Big thanks @PeterHarris for helping us on the day!!
Would the end result have been different if you had juice in the tank?

Yes there is a big difference.
You have a lot less wick around the coil in the RDTA then what you would have in an RDA.
In an RDA you will have more wicking cause there is not tank to hold the juice.
perhaps the statement that was made before the cloud competition started about the tanks wasn't 100% clear.
Competition Juice was provided and all entrants needed to use that specific juice for it to be on level playing grounds. For those that wanted to use a tank, they needed to empty out their tanks of any existing juice and use the Competition Juice.
Thats not what you said Shaunnadan at the comp. we were told to empty our tanks and dry burn our coils and us it as an RDA. that why someone else also brought it up that day, that it was not fair for the ppl using RDTA's. thats why i got a dry hit cause there was no juice flow.
"perhaps the statement that was made before the cloud competition started about the tanks wasn't 100% clear." so what you saying is, that the cloud chaser comp was not 100% fair or clear on the rules??
In my almost 40 years I have learnt that there are usually three sides to every story. What he said, what she said and what really happened. I wasn't there, so I have no opinion, but shouldn't issue have been sorted on the day? Myself, and many others I am sure, come to this thread to see pics and/or video of the comp, not to read about a two-day-old argument. If memory serves, last year's comp was held with 100% VG, so surely a tank isn't the best option to begin with?
Like you said that you were not there, so why do you even comment? If you were there then your comments would be valid. Also it was brought up on the day.
Really guys. Shouldn't something like this be discussed away from these public threads? It only leads to public arguing & leaves a bad taste hanging around this forum. @BODVAPE rather dicuss it with the organizers via pm's, that way everyone is left unscathed. Thanks bud.
Vape town FTW can we please see some pics????
