The 'Where Do You Play Photo Challenge' is ON!

Ah yes, another day, another challenge! This time though, we wanna see your personal astrojax stomping ground. Do you throw your lollys in Bali? How about a Turbune in Irvine? So you do the Charleston in...uh, Charleston?

Wherever it is that you let your inner jaxogist conduct mad experiments, we don't want to hear about it- we want to see it!

Here's the deal (which, if you were already subscribed to our fabulous newsletter you'd already know, but we're not judging- honest.)

Photos will be judged based on quality, creativity, and of course, location. Three photos will be selected to receive gift certificates redeemable at www.USAstrojax.com.

1st place winner receives $50.
2nd place winner receives $35.
3rd place winner receives $25.
4th place winner gets nothing! Good DAY, sir!

Additional details our lawyers make us put in:

  • All submissions should be submitted by midnight EST on 10/10/2012
  • Submit your photos to info@usastrojax.com.  You may submit up to 5 photos
  • Your photo may be posted on USAstrojax or used in promotional materials (emails, Facebook, basically we own your soul)
Please note: To make up for the whole 'owning your soul' thing, we reserve the right to make this contest even SWEETER, meaning if someone goes that extra mile and absolutely blows us away, that individual will receive a $75 gift certificate!
So what're you waiting for?  Grab your fancy-pants camera your sister bought you last Christmas, your phone, or for you hipsters that totally practical Holga you overpaid for on eBay and start busting out  some of your favorite tricks in your native habitat!

The Most Embarrassing Astrojax Moment Winner is Decided!

Last week we put out a challenge to the community on our Facebook page (which, if you haven't 'liked' us yet we'd gee golly appreciate it) to tell us your most embarrassing Astrojax moment. There were a lot of great stories! Harrowing tales of rogue injuries caused by loaves of bread or even one fan having to demonstrate her mad jaxin' skills to a customs agent; Even Larry, the creator weighed in and while his story was good, we just can't see letting him win free Astrojax stuff- Sorry, Larry! So who walked away the victor?  Well, let's just say this titan of shamelessness didn't just walk away, but strutted. Here's the story. Colby, having just done a thousand one-handed pushups while rescuing 9 kittens from a burning orphanage, was walking back to his Lamborghini Gallardo when all of a sudden he spied a shady character trying to steal his bumper sticker!  Rather than immobilize the perp with his mind (which he can totally do), Colby instead reached for his trusty Astrojax. Just when the crook had recovered from being blinded by Colby's dashingly good looks, he made it only a single step before tripping over Colby's make-shift Astrojax bolo.  In classic fashion, Colby retrieved his bumper sticker and Astrojax, just before sending the mischievous scamp on his way and telling him to stay in school. Ok, we made up the part about the Lamborghini- it was actually the Batmobile because that's the only explanation for how one man can dish out so much justice.  For all of the details of Colby's masterful crime-fighting, head on over to our Facebook page! Congratulations, Colby!  You just won $25 store credit in addition to the mortified respect of all of us in the office.  May your strings never knot and your bumper stickers remain forever unsoiled by the fingers of injustice, you champion! Thanks again to everyone who submitted a story and be looking for more contests soon!
