I actually think you should wait, Sebi. We really are going through, or have gone through a whole lot of contests lately.

I think people will be ready for another contest in September.

Sebi, I can't wait for you to host a contest, but I would definitely prefer something that kicks off in September.

Besides, that gives me more time to develop my skillset… I have only been playing for seven weeks… I need more time if I want a shot at winning an ukulele…

No, 80's were done. 70's is what we're talking about here.

Please also remember there are 2 types of contests:

UU contests - official contest put on by the UU guys
Member sponsored contests - these aren't necessarily endorsed by UU

No one is stopping anyone from holding their own contest. The 'older' members are just a little burnt out with all the recent contests that have been held concurrently.

Ermmm.....

So I read this thread after I posted my new contest.
Yikes... Hope you guys still attempt it... It'd be kind of sad if I couldn't even GIVE this ukulele away. :D

Yup. Except we've already had a 1980's contest a few months back, so this one will be a 1680's. contest.

So start brushing up on your Corelli and Purcell!

Sure. I think it's plausible. :) Thanks for your advice, Deach and Seeso.
