1. On the first of each month, a contest "theme" will be announced (i.e. water clarity, family fun, decking, custom features, lighting, scenery, etc)
2. Members have 10 days to upload ONE image for consideration; Photo must be related to the thread titled theme for that month.
3. Per general TFP rules, nothing profane, political, or insulting.
4. The first 10 days is the submission period. Posts are limited to ONE image ONLY. No discussion posts yet. This will make viewing much easier for all.
5. Days 11 - 15 the thread will be locked and is for voting only. No more uploads. Viewers now have a final opportunity to vote (or modify their selection) for their favorite upload.
6. Members are encouraged to use an emotion icon ("Like" or "Love") to vote for their favorite upload; it will be tough, but select only one favorite.
7. On day 16, emotion Likes/Loves will be tallied for a winner. In the event of a tie, we will create a poll on the thread to make a final selection.
8. Once a winner is announced, the thread will be unlocked and comments/discussions are welcomed. Winner and nominees can tell us all about their pool/photo/event.
9. A member can only be selected as winner once per calendar year.
10. Winner will receive a $50 gift certificate from tstestkits.net! Oh, and maybe some bragging rights. :poke:

This should be fun. Showcase your family fun pool toys. Let’s see those pics! Have fun and good luck to those who apply!

We have to cheat a little bit by holding it steady for my toddler daughter, but we love our unicorn ring toss. She has multi purposed the rings as hula hoops to wear in the pool when she doesn’t want to wear her swim vest (under watchful supervision, ofc.)7D9E7FD7-55C5-42D1-A060-86A4C314793D.jpeg

Folks, let's congratulate @SJPoe (Post #6) for being voted as this month's TFP Pool of the Month. While all nominees had an outstanding display, this display of pool toys seemed to be a crowd favorite. We invite all who posted to tell us more about their pool, and thank you all for participating. Let's do this again next month.

@SJPoe be on the lookout for your $50 discount code from tfteskits.net.

Whoo Hoo !!! I was just about to put an order in for some refills too :)

Backstory : My Grandson Drake has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, and swimming is a big part of his ongoing physical therapy. He's a very large part of why we purchased the house with the pool in the first place.
Drake loves to play with toys in the pool, and it's a constant battle to limit the number to a manageable amount. Like most 10 year olds, they are good at getting the toys out...not so good at putting them away.
When I told him there was a competition for a photo of his favorite toy, he said "But they're all my favorite...why can't we just have them ALL in the pool.? ". He knew he had me dead...and the victory pose is exactly that ;)

BTW - I believe there are 42 toys - which as everyone knows...is the meaning of life!!

The blow up pool slide is a favorite at our pool!!View attachment 450919
If I was going to have 2 votes this was gonna be one of my votes. If you have read anything about my submission you would know that obviously I am super curious about your pool slide. Does it feel pretty heavy duty? And what ages or weight is it recommended for? I love it 🥰

Thank you @PoolMammy! Believe it or not, we bought that pool slide for our sons in 2006!! It moved with us to 3 other houses with pools before this house. That is my oldest granddaughter on it sliding head first just like her dad and uncles did! She is 10 years old, I don't know her weight, but she wears a size 12 in girls. I don't let kids much older that that use it. My little grands, aged 3 and 2 absolutely love it too! When not in use we keep it dry and folded in a Rubbermaid tote in our garage. It works perfect and is a huge favorite when the grandkids are here!!
