Shoot, we did forget that we included that rule!

Ladies and Gentlemen, your ninth place winner is actually:
~arph, for his Sentinal!


Congrats, ~arph!

Well deserved!  That was one of my faves.

Congrats everyone! I was super stoked to see all the awesome stuff people built for this, and I'm not even surprised that I lost! Looking forward to what comes next.

I was under the impression only 1 of my 2 builds entered could win a prize, so I will happily pass on my 9th place to the next in line.

Yeah I thought that too.

The good news is, Mr. Danna here came up with a way to (we hope) put the missing prize to really good use.

I think you guys will like what they have planned for it.

****IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT****

Well the cat's out of the bag!!! Or maybe I should say that great minds think alike!  ;)

Ian (whose inappropriate handle is "slacker") has generously offered the FV-1 kit to none other than Urs [Edit: Urs = "Haddock"], the winner of the 1000 Posts/End of the World competition. As most of you know, Urs won that competition and never received his prize. (For those who don't know about it, go here: http://www.diystompboxes.com/smfforum/index.php?topic=96870.0).

The prize is NOT IN LIEU of receiving his "'end of the world' themed Sonic Death Ray 14 stage phase shifter, enclosure etched by Slade, pedal built by frequencycentral......"    This prize has been awarded because Urs has been a good sport about not receiving anything since he learned that he was the winner on September 10, 2012, exactly 366 days ago. It's been a year and a day since he won the contest and has never bitched, complained, or uttered a negative word about the folks who were paid to provide his prize. (BTW, thanks to Rob DEADASTRONAUT, who stepped in and etched the enclosure for the unfinished prize.)

Urs, we hope this helps with the fact that you haven't received your prize. Thanks for being a great guy about it all!  Please PM slacker with your address so he can send the FV-1 kit to you, and congratulations!!!

BTW-In order to keep this thread pure of negative, upset, pissed off posts about the 1000 Competition, please direct any negative, upset, pissed off posts to the 1000 Competition thread. ;)

Edit: Urs has been PM'd to check this announcement".
Edit:  I've forgotten my manners; thank you Ian!

Also agreed. Also, happy anniversary Urs! I think it would be awesome to plan for another Contest to finish next summer (not that it has to be the next one) just to keep a tradition of a yearly/annual contest!

And because it's only polite, I'm also volunteering to be a part of the planning and executing team making the next contest happen. I'll happily take applications for that. Anyone who wants in, I think my limit will be 2 plus me on making it happen/arranging for judges.

I think it would be cool to have a contest here where all the members vote.
