    Dear tMP Cornet and Trumpet players,

    Here is your chance to win a brand new Eclipse Trumpet! Please visit the Elcipse Trumpet Contest forum on for more details

    The contest ends Sunday April 16th (Easter Sunday)

    Rules have been provided below. Good Luck to all tMP members!

    Below are 5 tasks. You must pick 2 of the first 4 tasks for your entry.
    Number 5 is mandatory for all entrants.

    This means that if one particular task does not happen to be one of your strong points, then you can avoid it.



    I want unusual photos that include a trumpet, flugel or cornet. The instrument does not have to be yours.As long as the picture has one of these 3 instruments included in it somewhere.

    For instance: a trumpet blindfolded, tied to a stake awaiting the firing squad.
    Your dog playing the Flugel etc etc You get the idea.

    It must be taken by you and be original, pictures taken from the internet will be disqualified.
    You must post this picture on your entry. If you dont have a place to host the picture then tootsall has that covered (PM him)
    Please note: only one photo in this section
    The photo must be organic as such, no photoshop or editing with any photo gadgets! just as it is taken please.

    This photo must be kept and sent to me in England should you win.

    2. THE STORY

    I want you to write a story for us, it can be about anything you like!

    Make us Cry, make us laugh, make us think you need a shrink!
    Whatever you want.
    This must be an original story, not taken from any other source other than your own mind or it will be disqualified.
    I want a hand written version sent to me in England should you win.


    I want you to make me a model of a trumpet.(it doesnt have to play)
    It can be any size but made from general things that you can find.
    For example candy tubes, hose etc etc
    You can paint it,spray it,dress it up in any way you want.
    Then name it.
    A picture of it must be posted on your entry, again help with hosting the picture should not be too much of a problem.
    No normal trumpet parts may be used!!! but anything else.
    Please note: only one picture of the finished item per entry!!! you can put a link to other pics showing the build process if you wish, but only one finished picture of it on the entry please
    This model should be kept and sent to me in England should you win.


    I want you to write a poem or limerick that is trumpet related in some way.
    Choose a poem OR a limerick, NOT both.
    It can be as long or short as you want.
    Again only original work will be accepted, so only your own thoughts please.
    A hand written copy must be sent to England should you win.

    Okay that's the 4 tasks!

    Remember we only want you to pick 2 of them to do.
    What 2 you pick makes no difference in the judging, we will be judging on merit for each persons entry.
