Aloha friends!

OK, so here's the deal. On January 1, 2013 we will be giving away a brand new, perfectly awesome Kanilea K-3 Tenor Deluxe Gloss Koa ukulele package. All that's needed to enter is a few minutes of your time and your opinion. At the same time you'll be helping others with what you have found to be true. Only reviews made during December 24-31 are eligible.

Log on to http://theukulelesite.com. Register if you haven't already, and submit up to three reviews on any product on our website. Ukes, strings, books, cases…anything you have experienced. Your review will not be visible right away. All reviews are subject to approval, only to deny unhealthy spam. (as opposed to the healthy kine found in a musubi …mmmmm). Reviews with links to outside websites, and those that do not appear legitimate will not be published. The point of the contest is to give visitors more info and real life opinions.

Here's the low-down
1. Please don't submit more than 3 reviews or you will be disqualified.
(Remember, reviews are not immediately visible. They will be held until approved.)
2. One contestant per IP address. (If you have previous reviews, they won't count, so go ahead and give three more.)
3. Only review what you know. If it says "this looks real good" or some other useless comment, it will be thrown out immediately.
4. Give us the truth! Your adoration or disdain will NOT be censored, I promise. But please be nice with your loathing :)

The winner will be chosen using random.org and will receive a Hawaiian Ukulele retailing for $1975!
Plus we're including an Oahu hard case, Oasis Humidifier, and shipping to anywhere in the world. Total value is…a whole lot, YOU do the math! It's a good deal for nothing. Good Luck! I'm definitely rooting for you.

I will be enjoying a few days off with my family. Then I will return to melting my brain with end of the year paperwork. So sorry, but I can't hold anyone's hand through this one...just do it!

Mahalo for a great year~

Done. I made sure to review things I own, and not on the website.
This is a great way to get reviews up. I hope they are not too swamped.

Hopefully Andrew will do, like many online contests, a video screenshot (or just point the camera at the screen) of random.org and punch the sort button. It's fun to see, at random, which one comes out as #1. Try the website for fun if anyone is looking for a good time. This is a generous offer from HMS, certainly.

I just finished my three reviews...I was sorry I did not get to review the uke I actually bought from HMS as it is no longer on their website though. That is a wonderful contest and sure to make the lucky winner very happy.

Heh, heh. I've been sitting here all day hitting the refresh button - do you know how hard that is with all of your fingers, your legs, and your arms all crossed, while knocking on wood? LOL

The suspense is driving me crazy - where do we find out who won?
(keep checking my email... hoping against all odds it's me or my favorite uke enabler). :)

They posted the winner on their facebook page.

Congrats to that lucky dog.

Hopefully they will post something here. Not everybody does facebook. Is their page called "The Ukulele Site Next To Killer Taco's"? A name like that makes me wonder if it is the right one. Can somebody copy and paste for the rest of us?

I think there's a mistake, I was supposed to win!

Oh well, congrats Michel and thanks for the generous contest Andrew!

At least I finally get home tomorrow to see my new Pono, so I'll have something to console myself with.
