CONTEST!!!

During the latter part of August and early September, Paul will be
touring the Western United States (WA,OR, CA, AZ, UT, ID) giving
talks on permaculture and related topics! He may be coming to a town near
you!

Such a tour needs a name so we are holding a contest to name the
tour. The person submitting the best name will receive as a prize a
PERMIES T-shirt (stylish!) and a PERMIES coffee mug.

Submit your name by posting to this thread by July 1, 2012.

The CONTEST winner will be notified by July 4. Stay tuned as details of the tour are finalized
and made public!

[All decisions by the judges will be final and all submittals will be deemed licensed for use on, and for publicizing
the tour by Paul Wheaton and Permies.com.]

How about calling it simply "The Great North West Permaculture Tour!" Then when you can get to the south western states you can have "The Great South West Permaculture Tour" and so on for the south east and north east. After that you can take on other countries and then it will be the already suggested "World Domination Tour!!" Can just see all of these with big broad side posters being put up in the towns you are about to visit. Big colorful posters like with the old time circuses.

Alex is whipping up a mountain of new tshirts in these two designs. There will be a plethora of men's and women's sizes.







If you want, you can have one of the old tshirts instead:




And of course, the all glass mug:




Here is the old mug with some coffee and cream:

Trying to pick a winner. I thought it was just gonna be stuff that we paint on the wall of the land whale, but today I learned that is will be used for the promotional stuff too.

So, going through the list again to find a good fit and then Jocelyn says "Symphonies in Seed and Soil Tour"

What do you all think?

I like that best! Can you fit in some kind of subtitle referring to a monoculture as a symphony of 100 tubas?

You know, "Ode to Polyculture Tour" isn't too shabby either.
