We're very excited to announce a brand new summer contest!

As you know, it's been a long time since we've had a new hurricane video. The current video was filmed over Labor Day weekend of 2007, and it was unveiled on New Year's Eve that year. It's almost three years old!

This time, for our fifth installment of the video, we want to involve YOU. We want you, the fans, to create your own video clip about "What Not To Do During a Hurricane." You've seen those segments on our previous videos- they're always funny and we think you can create some great ones.

It doesn't have to be a fancy professional recording. Use your Flip, your phone, or your camera. Just keep it to less than ten seconds, please!

Here are the rules:

  • Create your video featuring "What Not To Do During a Hurricane" in less than ten seconds
  • Upload it to YouTube and tag it with "sbhurricane"
  • Send us a link: tweet it to us, post it on our Facebook page, or email it to us

Submissions are accepted through August 7. Be sure to follow all of the rules above to be considered!

Starting August 7, the public will vote on their favorite video clips. We'll select some finalists based on the votes. We'll announce the finalists at our block party on August 14, and you'll have one night to vote for your favorite clip.

The winning video clip will be featured in our new hurricane video! The winner will also receive a prize package featuring free sandwiches for a year from our sponsor, the Sandbar Sub Shop, which opens this month in Lawrence. 

Be creative! We can't wait to see what you come up with.
