    Seeing as everyone is stuck at home and not in the mood to work, I thought I'd kickoff a best snowman competition.

    I'll start it off (badly) to get you all in the mood.

    If we get enough entries I'll set up a poll and we can choose a winner with the prize being the admiration of all your fellow snowman builders. :D

    P.S Please don't cheat and post up someone else's handy work that you found on the net, only snowmen build today and over the next few days of snowfall are allowed to enter, its only yourself you'll be cheating... ;)

    GET BUILDING!!!

    Is it really his snowman - didn't he get into a spot of bother before for 'borrowing' a photo? ;)

    I was going to go out front at 3am this morning where we have a big bit of grass before you get in to the park and make a giant penis out of snow.

    Didn't snow though, was gutted, had to go to bed and get up for work like a stupid adult :(

    In an attempt to get this thread back on topic and away from member shaped snowmen/art. lol :D

    The snow has moved north so no excuse for more of you to get your entries in; some stiff (careful ;)) competition has already been entered.

    I do not have any pictures but my friend has just produced a video of our nightsledging trip to a hill on the outskirts of Loughborough on Monday night. The snowman/angel thing that we made is featured about 5 mins in.

    Anyone leaving Loughborough by train on the mainline to Nottingham should be able to see it, or at least what's left of it, on the side of the hill shortly after crossing the River Soar on the right hand side :D

    Nightsledging video with snowman

    ps. We can be seen walking along a railway line but this is a disused stretch of the Great Central Railway and not a mainline ;)

    But ours was way taller!!! :D

    Well done to all those who have entered so far!
    I'll give it to the end of the weekend for anyone else who wants to enter and will then set up a poll for us to pick our favourite. :rotfl:

    Apart from me rolling the body, this was made by my 2 daughters (6 and 3).

    Not bad for their first ever snowman.
