One Shot 2018-2019

Women vs Men

Monday, March 4, 2019 7:30pm

Presentation Director: Jake Mosser
Equipment: Rick Cloran

This night is one of the most popular events at GLPA. This friendly, fun, rowdy, but competitive contest pits the men against the women photographers in the club. This will be a Women vs. Men competition with teams but will not require team leaders or selection nights. This is the only night that seating is segregated. Each team must sit on their own side of the room. Cheering and showing support for your team is mandatory! We will also serve refreshments and a little libation that night. Chris Germain, MNEC does a little decoration of the hall and arranges the munchies for the night. The teams are usually dressed in the team colors although the women always look better but the men usually have noise makers.

There are twenty-five image categories for the contest. Names and categories were selected last May. We pulled two names for each category - one female and one male name. The participants are responsible to get their one image for that category in to Coordinator Jake Mosser, HonPSA, HonNEC, by Monday February 25th, one week before the March 4th competition night. Jake prepares the images for judging. If you can’t remember what category you got, you can email program chair Susan Mosser. If you do not submit your image, your team will forfeit that category and you will lose points/. You can see that you must send in your image. We do have a few alternates so if your plans have changed since we drew the names last May and you can no longer participate, please let Susan know as soon as possible so they may draw an alternate for that category.

We will also need one or two volunteers to help set up the hall for the judging as we need to set up two screens and projectors.

On the night of the competition we will have one or two judges pick the image that they feel fits the category best and that they view as the best image. The team with the most winning images wins the One Shot contest, earns bragging rights, and has the trophy turned to display their team name (women or men) for the year. The men are desperate to keep the trophy displaying the men’s nameplate again this year. The judges are sworn to secrecy until that night. Along with the “One Shot” on the same night is our famous “Cook Off Dessert Raffle” which unfortunately the Men’s Team also won last year.

Cook Off Raffle

Here is the way the Cook-Off Raffle works. There will be ten desserts to choose from. We will sell tickets at three for $1. Each dessert will have a bag placed in front of it. You then place your tickets in the bag in front of the dessert or desserts you crave. You can put all your tickets in one bag or spread them out. The winning baker will be determined by the number of tickets placed in the bag for their dessert. The winner will receive a special monetary prize donated by Jake and myself. One ticket will be pulled from the bag for each dessert and the winner gets to take that dessert home.

The Cook Off Raffle is being coordinated by Marilyn Cloran, FPSA, MNEC. We already have some cooks booked but we need ten. If you are interested in cooking a yummy dessert that night please email Marilyn at mrcloran@comcast.net and get your name on the list.

Below is the list of this year’s categories and under that a recap of the winners from last year put together by Pam Lintner, MNEC.
