Although our club contest to create a theme for MMW 2013 did not quite achieve our anticipated 1,000,000 entries (we were this |<-->| close), there was a quite respectable number of entries. Most incorporated some reference to the physical location, mentioning “Bend” or “Deschutes”, or more-generally, ” River”. Another general focus was on the na- ture of the area, referring to “Sagebrush”, “High Desert”, “Dust”, or a “cowboy” tie in. A few entries keyed on the number “13” as in Apollo Mission and Friday the __.
At our February club meeting members present voted, in a two-step process, on the entries. The most-popular and ultimately-chosen theme is ” Minis Conquer The Cascades”.
