... It's pronounced MINION-LYMPICS
... The Minionlympics will run Monday February 8th through Friday February 12th
... New Minionlympic event each day - don't miss it!
... To participate you'll need to be an e-minion (sign up as a follower there to the right)
... Points will be awarded for a whole bunch of things throughout the week (listed below)
... PRIZES (did you hear that? P-R-I-Z-E-S will be awarded for the first, second, and third place finishers at the end of the week
... Each Creamathelete will be awarded 1 point for each comment they leave (limit one comment per post).
... 3 points if the Creamathelete puts up the Minionlympics button (the one right above) on their blog's sidebar for the entire week of the Minionlympics - please also link back to The Creamery. If you have trouble posting the button above, email me at whimsyattack AT gmail DOT com and I'll email the jpeg directly to you.
... 2 points for Chip's favorite comment each day (which means the deadline to comment for each daily post is 10pm PST). And to insure that he is not playing favorites, I'll be reading the comments to Chip without him knowing who wrote them.
... 1 point awarded to each Creamathelete who has a supporter come and cheer them on at The Creamery (1 point for each unique comment left by a non-competitor; the commenter needs to say who they are cheering for, much like they'd do if they were sitting in the stands at an Olympic event, example: GO FOR GOLD, WHIMSY!). Must be left by an actual real person, you're on the honor system here. They can comment every day if they'd like, but can only comment once per post.
... A special POINT EXTRAVAGANZA will take place on Friday's post.
... The Creamathelete with the most points at the end of the week will be awarded first prize, following on down to third place.
... Third prize: a Minion award of honor
... Second prize: a Minion award of honor AND a personalized Minion lunch bag
... First prize: a Minion award of honor AND a personalized Minion t-shirt AND the first round of The Golden Minion Box of Awesomeness (gmboa), filled with fabulous Minion goodies
Now CREAMATHELTES, declare yourselves! (That means you. Yes, you. You should comment and tell everyone that you're proud to be a Creamathelete.)
See you Monday for the start of the games.
