Well I made it to 500 (after a year) Now 1000!!!

To celebrate I am hosting a contest. It will run to June 30th.

The contest it to take pictures of your ukulele doing something, get creative! No more than 5 entries per person, I will try to keep the entries linked in this post. But no guarantees.

The winner will get a ET-3000 Clip-on Tuner

Second place will get Aldrine's CD

Third Place will get your choice of 1 set of ukulele strings!

i do like some of these contests that are not JUST ukulele playing.. putting captions on photos.. making art... taking photos of your ukulele doing things.. drawings.. it kind of helps give everyone a chance.. and helps build that community.. all about the UKE! and so much fun!!!

UkuleleHill
05-19-2009, 02:38 PM
Host it at a site like http://imageshack.us/ and once it is uploaded copy the direct link, then to post it here you click on the yellow button that looks like 2 mountains and a sun, then paste the link there and submit. Let me know if you need any more help!

Coincidentally, my exam contains a significant amount of questions about waves in a string. My ukulele should be an expert at this having 4 strings himself.:shaka: :p
