Your entry is number nine, is creative, and has added a good laugh to my morning
routine here in H.K. Did you make that up entirely?

Notice to all other “Keyboard or AASCI? Artists” out there : This kick-off
version of the Contest ends Thursday, March 18. At that point, I’ll pull all the
entries together, classify them and decide who gets “The Prizes.” See FINAL LIST
Below …

  1. Grand prize - One Brand-New, Historic, Hong Kong Unicon IX T-Shirt (Very
    Popular in Germany), AND an “Official” Unicycling Society of Hong Kong,
    enamel, club - logo, lapel pin!!! :slight_smile: ** These pins were not yet available in
    Bottrup - but are WAY COOL !!!

  2. First Prize - One Slightly Used, Historic, Hong Kong, Unicon IX T-Shirt
    (Even MORE Popular in Germany) AND an “Official” Unicycling Society of
    Hong Kong, enamel, club - logo, lapel pin!!! :slight_smile: ** THESE pins are the same
    as in GRAND PRIZE above, and were also not yet available in Bottrup - Still,
    WAY COOL !!!

  3. Second Prize - One “Official” Unicycling Society of Hong Kong, enamel, club -
    logo, lapel pin!!!

  4. Third Prize - One “Official” three - color, cloth - embroidered, club

  • logo patch. Looks great on a hat or jacket, or even IN YOUR COLLECTION!! (Rare
    item) !!! :slight_smile:
  1. Consolation Prizes - To All “Serious” entries, one booklet of Unicycling
    Society of Hong Kong, proprietary, UNI-MAIL stickers in Red, Green, and
    traditional “Air Mail” Blue!!! ** Yes, now YOU TOO can trick the post-man!!
    (Looks just like a real “AIR - MAIL” sticker, but has a picture of a UNI on
    it :slight_smile: !!! (Also circulated at UNICON IX)

  2. The WORST entry - One Life - Time, non-cancellable subscription to “Jack
    Halpern’s Joke Club.” ** As you REALLY don’t want to be stuck with this
    “prize,” think a little bit before you submit :wink: !!

** Remember, ADULTS: This is perhaps your only chance to best your kids’
performance in a unicycling-related activity. Conversely, BEGINNERS OF ALL AGES:
This is your chance to beat out “The Experts!!” Yes, even self - proclaimed
Newby Rick Bissell (entry below)

May indeed be able to beat “Expert” John Foss (Entry Below)

 )-D "Tah-tan-gah" cycle

ALSO, you don’t even have to be a RIDER to send in an entry!!

Once all entries are in, I’ll collect and Re-Post all entries on one sheet,
listing the entrants’ names, age, and sex, and welcome discussion for a period
of one additional week before ultimately deciding and announcing the prize
winners. No, I can’t “Win.”

And Like I said before, I’ll probably submit the whole lot to “Unicycling
Magazine” together with a short story for printing once the contest ends. In
this way, you’ll not only get a super - nice prize, but also your name and
creative efforts will be (probably) forever immortalized in the pages of
“Unicycling!”

So, get thinking and get typing / Only 8 days left from where I sit here in
U.Q. The prizes are DEFINITELY worth the effort.

                                            V/  "Tah-Tan-Gaaaahhhhhhhhhh-
                                                hhhhhh" /S

…O

P.S. The contest was originally called "The First Annual “John Foss Birthday -
UNI KEYBOARD ART COMPETITION” because the idea sprouted from a post to me
from John on his birthday. But since most entrants have forgotten to add
the “Happy Birthday, John” part, we’ll just call it the “First Annual
UNI-KEYBOARD ART COMPETITION” from now on.

Don’t worry John, you’ll always know “The Truth.”

WOW!!!

I’m impressed … You’re # 12. I especially like the detail of the
seat-post clamp.

I think I should add one more question to the original three which should
accompany your entry:

  1. Name

  2. Age

  3. Sex

****** 4) Hours spent at the keyboard!!!

Great Job.

Steve

P.S. How about submitting the above REQUIRED data or else I can’t consider your
fine entry.
# 4 is optional :slight_smile:

Hi John,

Your “Second Entry?” is # 13 (lucky).

Question is: Anyone out there who would attempt to “RIDE” one of those?

Steve “Staying on Top, But NOT THAT high, Thank You”

P.S. John, how old ARE you on your birthday last week? It’s ** Required **
information.

Re: UNI KEYBOARD COMPETITION )-/====O, U.P.date

Hi Kris!!!

This is perhaps “The Best Yet!”

But … we haven’t started the “Voting” yet.

You still have time to do an awesome MUNI entry!!!

None yet … 'cept Rick Bissell spoof.

Steve

P.S. I guess they ‘CAN’ get better, but most of us have jobs :slight_smile:
