Poll for the July competition QE2 Crew Having Fun
« on: Jul 31, 2017, 03:48 PM »
The theme for the June competition "QE2 Crew Having Fun" was chosen by Cruiseqe2, the runner up of the April competition. Lots of interesting pictures, which will make your choice even more difficult. 

Thank you to everyone who submitted pictures, which we really appreciate, and we hope that you enjoy choosing your 3 favourites.

Voting is easy but you need to be a Forum member and log into the Forum to vote.  Even if you have not submitted photos, please support those who have participated, by choosing your three favourite ones, noting the details, then tick the relevant box on the poll.  But if you have submitted photos please do not vote for the photos you have entered. 

To make it easier for you we have posted the pictures below, however you can also view the photos in the Gallery, where you can see them all at once, in thumbnail form, plus you can view larger versions of the pictures by clicking on the photo to see medium size, then click again, to see them in large size.

Go to the Gallery Album QE2 Crew Having Fun .

The prize this month is the set of QM2 stamps from the Isle of Man, donated by Isle of Man Post Office

https://www.iompost.com/uploads/2008_mc67_qm-2-cunard-ocean-liners-special-smiler-sheet_800x600.jpg



Alternatively, June Ingram is offering a jigsaw of the prizewinning picture

You will not see the results until after the voting has closed on 1 September 2017, giving all time zones the chance to catch up with the voting deadline. 

As always the choice is yours enjoy!

Difficult to choose only three favourites and I can already see that this will be a close contest.

Excellent selection of photos, Lynda! They bring back plenty of happy memories even those taken in crew only areas.

14 voters and it is the 14th of the month - let's see if we can get at least one voter per day through the end of the month (more would be better  ;D)

One photo has taken the lead and two are in hot pursuit.   :)

This is an exciting month!

17 voters now, with three pictures in equal lead, and three others only one vote behind. Just over a week to go, and it is anyone's guess which (and how many!) will win :) .

One picture in the lead, and five others only one vote behind! This is going to be a tight outcome...

Just shows how many scenes of crew having fun we have enjoyed!

If you have not yet voted, please take a few moments to look at the awesome photos and to cast you ballot for your three favorite photos.   :)

Just think, your vote may be the tie breaker !

Just a few hours left to vote.

We currently have 21 voters. Two pictures are in the joint lead, with three others following one vote behind.

Every vote counts -- and yours might be the decisive one!

There is still a couple of hours left to vote until the poll closes at 3.48 pm BST. 

Looks like two photos currently in first place.
