2013 TONs of FUN Christmas Contest!

Happy Holidays everyone!!

This is the OFFICIAL RELAUNCH (kissing's seal of approval) of the TONs of FUN Christmas Contest!
Our sincerest apologies for having to re-boot the contest, but we needed some time to ensure that the PRIZES for the winners were implemented in a way that would make it most fun!

*Focalink snowy white crackle Alto C ocarina
*Noble Bass C ocarina

The First prize winner ALSO gets this basket full of holiday snacks!


HOLIDAY GOODIES BASKET

2nd/3rd Prize: Choice of remaining ocarina(s) from prize pool

1st/2nd/3rd winners will be determined by YOUR votes.

Collaborations are allowed, however, if there are several members from TON that are participating in a single video that video can only be submitted once by only ONE member. The member that chooses to submit the video will be the one representing that entry.

As the snow-covered palm trees might indicate, it's the first time I've run into that problem. Rather startled me when I realized what was wrong.

Hte's saying that he wants to participate for the spirit of the contest and the fact that the new year is around the corner, but he sort of feels bad because he really just wants to participate so he can win the Mountain set.

Here's my entry (the video was my husband's idea :p) :

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0uR5yrgntXM&feature=youtu.be

Was a bit of a rush in order to get it up on Christmas Eve (which was important because of the song choice) and it took us most of the day to learn, record and make the video, but I think we pulled it off okay. :D

Enjoy! :D I know I did! and yes, this is the same video I talked about where I got my first busking tip. :blush: This video was a lot harder to do than last year's entry because there was a HUGE, year's end farmers market so, the mall was a freaking ZOO! I just hope the ocarina quality is okay. :shame: and yes, I'm wearing a pair of fingerless gloves I crocheted. They're very comfy and they sure strengthen your hands! .... like the hat?....

In case you can't see the flash player. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l8zCtTyG3dg&feature=youtu.be :3

Very pretty playing Zero. Your ocarina was sweet and clear above the ambient crowd sounds. I wish I could add ornamentation to my playing like you do. I also like your fingerless gloves. :)
