The winner of the Summer Bucket List Challenge will receive the top prize of

TO ENTER: Simply create a thread in the Summer Beach Hut forum with the title including your username and Summer Bucket List, i.e. 'Queen Cersei's Summer Bucket List!' Post the link to your bucket list thread in this thread for Official Entry. This thread can also be used for questions and discussion.


TAKING PART: The threads will be used to document your progress and you can use these 'blogs' to describe your experiences, share your progress with the community and post photos up of the awesome things you have seen!

You will need to post up your bucket list as the OP- this should have at least 10 items to be spread across the Challenge, though more is better (my own list has 54!). These can range from something small such as growing some herbs to something big like swimming with dolphins.



PRIZES: Lava have supplied some awesome prizes for the Challenge- the top prize is £500 plus a Lava Brightsounds Portable Bluetooth Speaker and Ambient LED Light!!! The 5 runners up will also receive a snazzy Lava Brightsounds speaker!

At the end of the Challenge, the blogs will be reviewed and the best one will win the top prize and have their blog published as an article for the TSR newsletter! Entrants will be judged on the quality of their bucket blog posts (we welcome photos, videos, anecdotes etc!) and on having completed all the items on their bucket list.

Winners of the Lava Brightsounds Speaker will be asked to submit a review of the product for an additional blog post.



DATES: The Summer Bucket List Challenge will kick off on Wednesday 1st July with 10 days for entry closing on Friday 10th July at midnight (creation of thread, formation of bucket list). The Challenge and will then run for 7 weeks over summer until Friday 28th August when the competition will close and final blog posts must be made.

The winner will be announced by the CT at the beginning of September!

I am strangely drawn to this £500...

Tell me, are group entries allowed? I'm thinking the annual MHSS camping trip could do with a larger cider fund an opportunity to grow as people and learn a little more about ourselves.

Hey just a quick question just wondered can you add to your original bucket list after the 10th or not really. As in for example I want to go on holiday with my friend somewhere which I'll put as one of them, but depending where we decide there could be more things I want to do eg I've always wanted to go paddle boarding but don't have any plan of where/if we're doing anything yet so it might not be possible. Just wondered since it doesn't really matter cos if we do manage to go on holiday together then obviously I'll mention things that we did but, yeah.. or if I just thought of more things throughout the summer, even though I've got a pretty long enough list already haha
btw I just looked up geocaching and it sounds so good! Just the sort of thing I'd enjoy, we're going on holiday to visit my grandparent (they live in Spain) and there's some in their town as well! My grandma always used to make us treasure hunts when we visited them so I can see her really wanting to do it haha so thanks for that suggestion

Absolutely! That is fine to add more on as you go along for those things that crop up unplanned!

I haven't tried geocaching yet so it is also on my bucket list
