Second twist - The runner up PHIL MAJOR wins the Chinese made Oscar Schmidt!!!

Twist number three - DEGARCIA wins the Makala with the case!

Congrats to all!!!

:eek::eek::eek:

I am beyond overwhelmed. I had this contest on my mind the whole time. Especially DEACH giving this opportunity to the community. I was ready to congratulate DAVOOMAC because he had the amount of votes in already.

When I read about your OS incident, I thought wow to it as well. But to give away 2 brand new purchased ukes and the makala is just amazing of you.
I'd just like to thank you DEACH. For this opportunity and for doing this as well. And thanks to the whole UU board. I can't even express myself right now. God bless.

btw, congrats Davoomac and Phil! Enjoy the ukes

Wow. Massive kudos for Deach for giving away three ukes to deserving members. That is easily the most generous unilateral action that I have seen on any forum. Congratulations to everyone who won.

Deach is member of the decade.


That's just crazy talk right there! I'll accept "Member of the Day" however. :)

There are so many members here that are my Uke Heroes. WS64, Dominator, Aldrine, seeso, Rayan, Bugoy, Fred and so many others I know I am forgetting are easily "Members of the Year". They are the ones who are constantly giving back to ukulele community. Seriously, where would be without them?

Since so many people asked....my gesture started off as a way to get rid of a ukulele I wasn't using. When I saw there were so many people that needed a decent one, I decide to add two more to the list. and NO I'm not some old eccentric millionaire. I wish I could afford to send one to all who entered.

Anyway, congrats to the winners!

Not a lot of action on the boards right now, so I thought I'd pimp Deach for some more reputation points. Add to Deach's reputation!!

I ran out of rep points for deach! anyone know how much you have to 'spread around the rep' before you can give someone more points?

I was thinking that exact same thing! I have given a handful of reps already, but I wonder what the actual number count is. Probably 10 ish?

DEACH! I think the uke came in the mail already! we just got the yellow slip so I'll be picking it up pretty soon. :D

I'll be sure to take pics and post a video when we get it.

It's about time! Had I known it would have taken this long, I would have thrown it in a canoe and I would have paddled it there myself. :D

I hope Andrew likes it.

hahaha I know huh?

It probably got here sometime mid last week, but we share a PO with a family friend and he had the slip. is the return address listed on there? We are going to send you some guam stuff :D

... is the return address listed on there? We are going to send you some guam stuff :D

I think so.

I wonder if Phil got his yet. He hasn't been on much lately. Maybe he's too busy practicing - like I should be doing.

I barred myself from going online for about a week while I finished up some term end work I had. It got a bit hairy there for a bit, but I'm past the craziness for a while now!

I've not received mine, but I'm excited to hear that it's probably right around the corner... I'll post as soon as I get my hands on it and let you all know.

Thanks again deach... :)

DEACH!

It's here! It's so awesome. Instantly I sound 10x better than before. Having an instrument that has proper sound goes a long way. I'm so impressed. I'll upload pics of me with it in the next couple days, and video as soon as I can figure out how to get my hands on a video camera. Really deach, this is pretty awesome. Thank you so much.

I want everyone to know how awesome deach is... I know people have been giving him praise, but seriously, I have this great instrument that makes me want to play so much and its because of this man's generosity. I cant thank you enough.

Congrats Phil! I feel exactly the same way once mine came in. I couldn't stop playing it... heck I have it on my lap right now as we speak. Deach has bless all of us and brought out the best in the community. I really can't thank him enough!

Okay Andrew's ukulele came in the mail already and it is sooo sweet! Andrew and I have been busy so we've not been able to meet up just yet. OOOOHh I wish I had an oscar schmidt too hahaha. This is a VERY nice ukulele Deach!

The sound is much different from my kala. I'ts like a it's a little less resonant, but it has this warm, mellow sound. :D Once we get some new strings on this uke, it'll be killer! I'll post pics and video when I get the chance.

Phil - get some new strings and it should sound a ton better.

Congrats to all!
