Definitions

 

Strangers – As we have near thirty people participating, there is a high probability that a stranger to one person or team will not be to another person or team.  Therefore, a “stranger” must be a stranger to that team.  If it can be proved otherwise the team will received a reduced point total for that photo.

 

Shot – shall be defined as an actual 1 oz drink from a glass or a swig from the container.  Applies to all adult beverages.

 

Doing a shot – should be the simultaneous consumption of an adult beverage.  No need to take turns or share a container one after the other…there are enough to go around.

 

         Posing – is the interaction with another and looking in the direction of a camera
