AND THE WINNER IS….

1st of all, I wanted to say thank you to all that participated. I thought that all the entries were creative and really fun songs that captured Deaches essence in our little community here in the UU forums.

2nd... I wanted to give a big THANK YOU to Harold O. He is the other UU member that generously doubled the prize money.

I asked both Harold and Deach to help choose the winner over the weekend. It was a hard choice to make but we felt that this Video deserved the win Over All

!!!Winner!!! (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-X3_ELoNHC8)




But… Because I thought it was Soooo close between three entries that I’ve decided to send UU T-shirts to these two participants also.

In no particular order
Video 1 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4q61eCtxg9s)
Video 2 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sOE80sCguDc)

Once again.. Thank you to all that participated. You all did a great job.

Harold also wanted to say "Honorable mention to the chicken, the dog, the phone."

Deach.. Thank you for letting me host this Contest in your honor. Keep up the good work that you are doing in our UU community.


:shaka:Winners, please PM me your contact info for the Prizes:shaka:

Which is why I feel like I should've won. After all, wasn't I honoring Deach the best by not even entering the contest in the first place?

:anyone:

Er, um... well, congrats to the winners anyway! :p

Thanks, its a solid Koa Pono tenor model PKT-2-E. Last Christmas, I gave my wife a list of about 5 different tenor ukes that I wanted from MGM,(after she did not fall for my shameless attempt at weaseling a Pineapple Sunday (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mr8svl5UEBo) out of her) and she chose this one. I'm really happy with it.
