    Okay here we go folks!

    The contest prize as you probably already know has been posted, and i hope that you all agree that it is surely worth a try.


    This year is slightly different from the previous contests as you will be able to choose your entry as such.

    Below are 5 tasks. You must pick 2 of the first 4 tasks for your entry.
    Number 5 is mandatory for all entrants.

    This means that if one particular task does not happen to be one of your strong points, then you can avoid it.



    I want unusual photos that include your trumpet, flugel or cornet.

    For instance: a trumpet blindfolded, tied to a stake awaiting the firing squad.
    Your dog playing the Flugel etc etc You get the idea.

    It must be taken by you and be original, pictures taken from the internet will be disqualified.
    You must post this picture on your entry. If you dont have a place to host the picture then i am sure many people will help with that.
    Please note: only one photo in this section

    This photo must be kept and given to me in England should you win.

    2. THE STORY

    I want you to write a story for us, it can be about anything you like!

    Make us Cry, make us laugh, make us think you need a shrink!
    Whatever you want.
    This must be an original story, not taken from any other source other than your own mind or it will be disqualified.
    I want a hand written version brought to me in England should you win.


    I want you to make me a model of a trumpet.(it doesnt have to play)
    It can be any size but made from general things that you can find.
    For example candy tubes, hose etc etc
    You can paint it,spray it,dress it up in any way you want.
    The name it.
    A picture of it must be posted on your entry, again help with hosting the picture should not be too much of a problem.
    No normal trumpet parts may be used!!! but anything else.
    Please note: only one picture of the finished item per entry!!! you can put a link to other pics showing the build process if you wish, but only one finished picture of it on the entry please
    This model should be kept and brought to me in England should you win.


    I want you to write a poem or limerick that is trumpet related in some way.
    Choose a poem OR a limerick, NOT both.
    It can be as long or short as you want.
    Again only original work will be accepted, so only your own thoughts please.
    A hand written copy must be brought to England should you win.

    Okay that's the 4 tasks!

    Remember we only want you to pick 2 of them to do.
    What 2 you pick makes no difference in the judging, we will be judging on merit for each persons entry.

    5. MANDATORY : All entrants must give us a brief reason why they feel that they should win this contest.


    1. No copies of entries once they have been posted.
    2. Only 1 entry per person.Anyone using 2 names will be disqualified.
    3. There is no cash alternative to the flight and hotel if the winner cannot use them.
    4. The judges ruling is final.
    5. Each entrant must have their entry completed in full by the closing date given below. Entries after this date cannot be entered.

    Something else may crop up but that is it for rules at this stage, i'll update as i am made aware of anything.

    A seperate thread will be set up for any questions you may have regarding the contest, and will be answered as soon as possible.

    This is all about having a bit of fun and having a laugh.

    We do not have any fees or charges to enter this contest so it has to be worth a go surely.

    The contest is open as of now so get going!

    CLOSING DATE : 6am UK time 28th March 2005 (plenty of time)

    I wish each and every one of you the very best of luck!

    And may the best MAN/WOMAN win.
