SketchUp Halloween Entries

Aidan at Google has posted lots of images of entries to the first Google SketchUp Halloween Challenge (haunted house or carved pumpkin). Cool stuff!

Top three winners will be chosen and announced at a later date in the SketchUpdate newsletter. See all the images and Aidan's post here.

Halloween Contest!

A couple years back SketchUp Island hosted a pumpkin carving contest (using SketchUp 3D software of course).

I am pleased to see that Google is sponsoring a similar event this year! You can create either a pumpkin, a haunted house, or both! Read all about it on the SketchUp blog.

Check out the wild entries from our own contest in 2009 right here.

Doop Doop

Couple weeks back I had a fantastic time at the PPL Park seeing my first professional soccer match. I'm hoping to go back for the last home game in two weeks.

I was pleased to find this great 3D model of the park in the 3D Warehouse by djwirth!

EDIT: October 30 first playoff game at home (PPL Park). Get tickets.
