What about Canadians

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Junkyard Wars : One Thread

How can us Canadians get involved in all the fun... I've seen quite a few shows and everytime I walk away saying I've got to try it.....

In response to Robert Maitland's post:

If you want to be on Junkyard Wars, but haven't got a team check out the build-a-team page. There is one Canadian on there at the moment. If you send me or Junkyard Jackie your details, we will post them to that page.

If you want to start a seperate forum, please feel free (and send me the url so I can link to it). I'll seperate the build-a-team page into US and Canadians if the page gets much bigger, but at the moment it seems more sensible to keep it on one page.

We have already got all the people we need for this series, I'm afraid. With any luck will we get to make another series, and I am sure some of the programs (and the junkyard wars website) will have details. I am not sure if we have got a policy on Canadians, but we did have a bunch of americans on this series of the UK show, so it has got to be worth applying. Also, you can start lobbying the Canadian broadcasters to make a series. It'd be fun to get you guys over to our junkyard.

I know of at least one Canadian team that was applying for the US series. (from the crew that builds exhibits for the Science Museum in Toronto). There was also one mixed (1 Brit, 2 Americans) team applying. I don't know if they made the cut, but it wasn't an automatic reject.

If there was anyone interested in the making of a Canadian Team. I would be interested in it . Ie Forming or Joining. Email me with intentions. As for Canadians on the show I think it would be A little amrican Candian Faceoff action :) .

Having seen the shows...my purpose in life (well maybe one of my short time goals...) is now to participate in the show (let's show that canadian CAN do it). I'm trying to get more info on the shows but cannot get much. I'm trying to get a team together but would be willing to get "sucked" into another one.

Can cut with a torch and weld anything anywhere(except in water)....Will travel.

I'm interested in joining a team.Auto mechanic by trade also good with wood and steel fabrication.

-- boyd roberts (mrbgr@yahoo.com), November 23, 2000.

I am certain that a Canadian Team would be one of the better teams in a worldwide series. Count me in. I am a Robotics Technician by trade. Pretty good at general designs...( ok call it cheating within the rules)!! :)

-- John Evers Jr (jevers@axiom.on.ca), November 24, 2000.

I am a 34 year old college machine shop teacher (machinist by trade) that grew up on a farm welding and fabricating for a pass time. This looks like a lot of fun, and just the excuse I need to go back to the UK for some more fun! My nic-name used to be McGyver! Just need some buddies...

I am a licensed automotive tech. ,specalizing in frame structure. With this i have engine and drive line knowledge as well as having good fabrication scills. Building is my life and my hobby which is why i would love to get a chance to be involed in this show . I would prefer to bring my own team of fabricators with me from central alberta Canada. They are the best people for such a competion and would make a good presentation of Canada.

-- Dean Brager (dbrager@telusplanet.net), November 27, 2000.

We welcome all engineers, scroungers and junkyard dogs from the "Great White North". I mean, let's face it, you guys and the Americans aren't all that different, eh? (only joking).

Seriously, we are accepting applications from Canadians, as we have done in the past. If your team is good enough, you'll get on the show - no matter where you come from. Hope that helps and best of luck applying.

Junkyard Jackie (RDF Media)

-- Jackie Morris (jackie@rdfmedia.com), November 28, 2000.

I'm thinking of creating an online forum where Canadians who want to compete can post messages & hopefully find suitable teammates within their area (unless RDF wants to do one).

E-mail me if you are interested.
