^ And sausage.

I think we need a different form of charcuterie for this contest to differentiate it from prior contests.

Pate? Prosciutto?

We need evolution!

5 entries so far! Just a reminder we need 12 before the contest goes forward.
I'm mostly here, Madbean, BYOC, and The Gear Page. If anyone's on a forum with other DIYers that is okay with posting a link to the contest, please help spread the word. :)

Rather than "waste" a post on a call for entries, here's another very cool prize that's just been confirmed:

It's a completed pedal.

It's a fuzz.

I know, you're thinking, "If I win, I can probably build my own fuzz." But wait, there's more.

It's a tricked-out FY-2.

Still not excited?

The PCB will be built by our very own Mark Hammer!

And the enclosure will be a LASER ETCHED 1590B coutesy of Pickdropper. If you haven't seen pickdropper's enclosures, hop over to the picture thread and prepare to be amazed.

So, I think that's something special. :)

Ah, what the hell, paid for another entry.

I'll see if I can find the time tonight to dig up the stuff that I've thought about adding as a prize.

Not sure how you have been counting Jon, but I bought 2 entry fees too - not sure I will use them both, but its a good cause.

Oh, and I tip my hat to those of you who have stumped up prizes - nice one gents.

Aron just gave me the total number of entries, so if you bought two early on, so I believe we're at 11 now. That's good this early on, I'm hoping this'll be a very well-populated contest by the end, even though that might make it harder to judge the final entries. :)

You've got 3 months - perhaps you should be aiming for XXL by the end of August.

Rob - nice one.

In that spirit - I am equally engrossed and revolted by the sasuage turtles that Vallhagen posted. Perhaps as an alternative I can suggest a Linda McCartney sausage on a fork?

ahh now i know what they are...i did wonder.....mad. are they just a swedish thing then?

@perrow,  i have, though its more of a pamphlet really..( how to lose £5.00 on a competition, but is well worth it) available at all good butchers. :)

@sam: that won't happen..i'm purely a carnivore  (plus ive never liked the beatles...i know...i know....that's illegal isn't it..) :)
