A little while back, the Orlando Magic Championship For Charity Golf Tournament took place and it was a resounding success, as it raised more than $250,000 to benefit the Orlando Magic Youth Fund.


The Magic’s 18th annual golf tournament at Reunion Resort was a sold out event with more than 200 participants and featured Magic players Vince Carter, Matt Barnes, Jason Williams, Mickael Pietrus, Magic Head Coach Stan Van Gundy and celebrity golfers Chris DiMarco, Ian Poulter and Brian Davis.


One of the players to play alongside the golfers was Matt Barnes.


You know the drill.



I'm sure everyone here is familiar with a "create a caption" competition, but in case someone here doesn't know what this type of contest is ... basically a picture is provided and you, the reader, attempt to come up with a quick sentence describing what's occurring in the photo. The line can be funny, stupid, witty, etc. 


I'll be a judge but I like to have another collective voice determining the winner, that way there's a bit of a consensus among the community. What I prefer for everyone here to do is this ... if you like the caption a fellow member has come up with, "recommend" it. That will be 'your vote', in essence. If you don't know how to "recommend" a comment, go to the comment you like, click on 'actions', then click on 'rec'. You can "recommend" multiple captions/comments, if you want. 


So for a quick recap.

- Write a quick sentence describing what's occurring in the photo. 

- If you like a caption/comment that's been written, "recommend" it.

- After you "recommend" a caption/comment, write something (like +1, for example) to indicate you like the sentence a 3QC member has written. 

- The contest will last four days, so whichever caption/comment gets the most recommendations, wins. In case of a tie, I'll determine the winner. 

- There will be two rounds in the competition. In the first round (Friday/Saturday), submissions are made and votes are tallied. At the end of the second day, the submissions that garnered four or more "recs/votes" will advance. In the final round (Sunday/Monday), votes are tallied for the eligible submissions. 

- Winner will be announced Monday afternoon or evening.

- The contest is subject to change


Let the contest begin!
