The haunting of the Spirit (October 30 day Spirit Challenge)
« on: September 21, 2018, 12:34:55 PM »
Nix and Speedy have inspired me with their zeal in the September Storm so why not let all the little ghouls and banshees out with an October Spirit challenge?!

This challenge will be run using standard challenge rules, enriched for goodness:

1.  Carry a Spirit for 30-days. It doesn’t have to be the same Spirit everyday, but it has to be a real Victorinox Spirit. Modded Spirits welcome.  Cheap copies, not so much.

2.  Try to use every tool in the Spirit’s ample tool set at least once.

3.  Post a fresh photo of your Spirit every day. Action photos appreciated.

4.  Post up insights, memories, and Spirit stories as you are able.

5.  A final summary at the end of the challenge is always appreciated. How does the Spirit stack up against your beloved Wave or Rebar or MP600 or…… paper clip? Give the MTo community an honest and frank assessment. Did the Spirit live up to it’s popular reputation?


The challenge starts 01 October 2018, local time, and will wrap up 31 October 2018.

Because the challenge is expected to involve a large number of MTo members, to make it easier on the mods to award the new badges en masse, all participants must start 01 October and finish 31 October. (That’s why we’re announcing the challenge well in advance.)

And yes I've borrowed a bit from Nix's post.

So let the haunting of the Spirits begin

I'm out.
Got the badge, and posting pics daily is hard at the moment (timewise)
I'll hop in to say hello from time to time though! :salute:

I might join in.  Will overlap a bit with the GEC challenge, but should be OK.

Hmm... I am considering joining but would like some clarification, possibly also for the benefit of others: my modest counting powers make this a 31-day challenge...?

Cheers!

Fiendishly tempting challenge..... I've got the badge, but then, it's not about the badge, it's about the fun of the challenge.

In my mind, it would be keeping in the Spirit of a Halloween challenge to require each participant to use the challenge tool to carve a Jack O'Lantern during the challenge.

So, I'm in...IF...the rules require a Jack O'lantern photo.

This would be dangerous for me. If I carried a Spirit that much, there would be a real risk of me realising I could easily sell everything else I own  :D

I've never carved one. Halloween isn't really a big thing here, and it has only been a thing the past few years (less than a decade really) but i'm all for it

that is sign to join in

i'm a bit impatient

I may. I'm somewhat undecided. I've done two 30-day challenges so far, and each time I'm so glad when they're done. For some reason the pressure to post a pic each day gets old after awhile.

I do love the spirit, so I may yet join.
