I really don't want either, despite them being not bad ideas. GBC tends too close to functionality, and animals too close to looks. Which brings me to my next proposal:

Build a kinetic sculpture.

It's a decent blend of functionality and looks IMO, and it ain't possible to have too many kinetic sculptures!

Time to have something other than super cars and have something that is in the spirt of Technic i.e. engineering, be that GBC or maybe replicate a early steam engine from bygone ages, such as a Crorther engine.

An Atmospheric Engine would be a real challenge

I will be away for four weeks from the 19th of April till the 18th of May and I am very busy at the moment. So having a big contest is probably not the best idea.

Can we come up with a simple contest or joined activity? The idea of doing something with GBC is still in my mind. Making a decent GBC is pretty complex, so instead of a contest we could do a theme month (or rather, six weeks). Venture into the world of GBC together?!

Just thinking out loud here.
