I’ve seen these kinds of threads posted in this section lately, so here goes:
TotalArtist Contest #1 for Leather Yo-Yo Holder Release
I recorded a few yo-yo songs recently. This is a contest where you listen to the song, answer a series of questions (with a number answer), get a score, and if you are the highest score, you win. Listen to the song, and PM me with answers to the questions below. PM so others don’t steal your answers. I will pick a winner after we have enough entries, hopefully by July 16th. If you have any questions about the rules for this contest, you may post in the thread so others can be aware of your inquiry. But, read this entire post first. If you like yo-yos, music, and you can follow instructions, you can enter the contest. Have fun…and thanks! Special thanks to my band mates Fellavader and mgiroux77, who heard this song before anyone else, (my other sets of ears).

-All answers require only a number, and anything besides that, or in addition to that, is considered wrong. Keep it simple. Do not answer a question with a question, or give me more than one answer. The ability to follow instructions is part of the contest.
-When you PM me, put “Leather Holder Contest,” in the subject heading, number 1-11 and fill in your answers. I will confirm receipt of your entry by reply.
-Anyone on my blocked list may not enter the contest for obvious reasons, as a PM is required.
-You must be YYE forum registered before the date of this post, otherwise, you must wait until the next contest to participate.
-Anyone discovered making entries under multiple usernames will be disqualified.
Note: If there is a tie, I will post for the tie breaker. An answer key has been established, so there is an answer I am looking for for each question, and I’m sticking to it : ) We may discuss the answers later, after the winnings are announced.
1st place = A YYE Edition genuine leather holder (as sold on YYE), and a $50 gift certificate to YYE
2nd place = A short version of the leather holder and $20 gift certificate to YYE
3rd place = A short version of the leather holder
More contests to come…Contest #2 posted in a few weeks. A hint about future contests:
I want to hear people recite the promo song, the Leather Holder Song, on the product page from memory, also the song “Hold Your Throws Up” needs a music video…hmmmm 'til next time.
