    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    This week's challenge will be "No Balls", Any sports related picture which does no use a ball or similar object. .

    Really looking foward to see what you all come up with ..

    __________________________________________________ _______________


    As always, here’s how the Sports Forum Challenge works….

    Each week we will have a theme to which everyone who chooses to participate must submit a photo(s). If someone opts to post more than one image, the first image is your official entry.

    Each winner will have the opportunity then to select the new challenge and pick the winner for their challenge.

    You have till Sunday to enter your photo at which point (Sunday night of each week) we can pick a winner.

    Here's one from me to get you going. . .

  2. that is a great image. I still have a hard time accepting it as a sport when there is no human activity...and Trainer doesnt count. But who knows, maybe it will be the Olympic substitute for softball and Baseball!

    By the way, I assume that based on the title of the contest... this dog is female? LOL
