    Hi All

    The contest has now ended, and i wanted to say that the entries are all fantastic in their own ways.
    I am pleased with the effort everyone has put into this!

    The standard of your entries has made is extremely difficult to choose a winner and that will not happen overnight.
    It will take the panel some time to sift through it all and agree on a winner.

    I will let you know when 1 am going to post the winner up on here, so please try and hang around at that time as it might well be you?

    A further post will be added later tonight (UK time) to show a little more about the prize.

    I truly believe that you are all winners simply for taking part! i would love nothing more than for all of you to come to England and have a horn built, but of course we can only have one winner.

    I would as usual like to thank the Trumpetmaster Website for hosting this contest for the last few years.
    In this time we have managed to make a certain few winners very happy and have had a lot of fun in the process.

    This year is no different although the prize is a little larger than before!

    The contest will go ahead next year, so there will be another chance to win if you are not successful this time.

    As for the prize for next year! well all i can say is that it will be equal to what we have done this year.

    Once again thankyou to all who took part! and i wish each and every one of you the very best of luck.

    I'll be back! :cool:

    Best wishes

    Thanks for the oppourtunity Leigh. I'm sure all of the entrants can admit that this contest was fun and the 1 in 39 chance of winning is pretty sweet. Thanks again.

    Yes - Leigh, and all the FCB co - thanks a LOT! This was a lot of fun, and even though there will only be one winner, I think we all "won" in the sense that it was very creative again this year.

    Thank you for the wonderful opportunity!! Waht a terrific gesture on your
    part being willing to put one of your "babies" in one of our hands at no
    cost to us. It's a shame I wasn't able to complete the 3 requirements
    (my photo hoster pulled the picture I had posted without informing me :dontknow: ).
    Next time!!

    Well, I managed to distract myself for half a day without thinking about the possible winning announcement but I don't think I can hold out much longer! Tomorrow I start on the fingure nails ha. While we wait, I would like to wish all my fellow posters the best of luck. Thanks Leigh, this has been...fun,fun,fun!

    I must have checked this thread 5 times today. And I know there is no chance of seeing the post staing the winner yet. Thankfully it's back to school tomorrow, so I'll be tied up and preoccupied all day.

    Thanks, Leigh. This was ALOT of fun. What an amazing thing you are giving back to us.

    I too find myself checking this board, even though I know there won't be any real news for some time. It is quite a magnanimus thing that Leigh does, giving away and instrument each year to someone on the forum. This year's prize is sure a doozie.

    The posts are really great, everyone. Thank you Leigh and Eclipse for encouraging creativity. This is a blast and I'm really shocked that more people didn't participate.

    I'm like the rest of you, I can't stop checking in. But I think the anticipation is definitely a big part of the fun. Just don't make us wait toooo long, Leigh. Pleeeze! ?

    Best of Luck to everyone. Although, I secretly hope to win. LOL! Surprise!
