Fan Fair 2019
First Annual Best Fan Mashup of The Year Contest
BFMOTY (pronounced beef-a-mo-tee, not to be confused with beefaroni)


The rules are simple:
  1. Combine the business end of a fan with the base from something else to create a one of a kind fan mashup.
    The original fan base can be retired from service or parted out on the forum or eBay). Who knows?
  2. Yes, you can desecrate lamps or other items to repurpose their base for your mashup.
  3. The fan must operate as originally intended. If it is an oscillator it must successfully oscillate with the original oscillating mechanisms.
  4. You may transplant the fan on/off or speed switch into your mashup, if possible.
  5. The objective is to blend the various parts into a seamless creation that gives the illusion of all parts belonging together, even though we know they do not.
  6. For the inaugural year we will allow all entries regardless of the creation time. This year, last year, earlier even. This way we can see as many awesome creations as possible and congratulate everyone for their inventiveness. Future years will allow only current creations (created since most recent Fan Fair). But this year it is wide open. Show us what you got!
  7. Have fun!
  • Let us know by June 1, 2019, if you plan to participate. Post here or send me a PM, if interested.
  • Judging will be by popular vote of the Fan Fair attendees.
  • The winner will be immortalized on the plaque of a special BFMOTY trophy and receive a free lifetime pass to the fan museum.
  • Participants will have the option to have their amazing creation auctioned off to benefit the AFCA Museum.
Good luck!

I was afraid that I wouldn't be able to participate since I'm so busy with other stuff, but since we can submit prior creations, I have a couple of prior projects I can enter.  One would have to be judged at the Museum. It's too Big to move...Will that work? It started life as a coat rack...…..

Hmmmm?  That’s a hard one to answer, Kim.  We’d love to see as many as possible.  But it’s hard to judge entries and compare them when they are not side-by-side.  How about making that one a special exhibit only???

Yes, it should be.  All we need are some more entries. Don’t be dissuaded by the entries of the great and powerful Frank&Durbin. Come present the Frank&Fan you always dreamed of but were afraid to create!

🧟‍♂️

Dear Mr Frank,

The BFMOTY board of directors (hereafter referred to simply as da' Board) met in executive session this afternoon at world headquarters in Indianapolis. We reviewed an instant replay that was not previously known to exist. The replay revealed that one of your proposed entries is a coat rack (see above clip from instant replay). 


Three circumstances had to be considered:
(1) Your proposed entry is a coat rack
(2) This is the first year of the competition
(3) This is supposed to be fun


This seemingly impossible combination of circumstances has led da' Board to reverse the earlier decision that excluded your coat rack creation from the voting competition. Still, it must be displayed at a recognized fan museum within 22 miles of the 2019 Fan Fair headquarters hotel and a suitable rendering should be available at Fan Fair HQ, as well.

Bring on the coat rack!


Sincerely,
da' Board
