Congrats Dave! I did a member search to get to know a little about you but there are no members named Dave Turner. I searched Kingston, TN also but you're not there either. Tell us a little about yourself you lucky dog.

Ya know.....I just read the rules for the drawings....I don't see where the rules say you have to be a BHO member, just "anyone over the age of 18" seems to be the criteria. Shouldn't you at least have to be a member of BanjoHangout to be eligible for the contests, giveaways, drawings, etc....?

In the 10 years and 5 days I've been a BHO member, which has entailed multiple giveaways of banjos and / or other prizes, I don't think I've ever seen anyone post and acknowledge winning anything.

The chances of BHO members actually winning any drawings are pretty slim because the drawing is not just for “members only.”

 It’s for anyone who cares to enter, like Scott said, and furthermore, if I get it right, the BHO has no say in who is the winner or not. The only thing BHO does, is to act as the “name-taker”/raffle-basket/announcer for those who enter and the one who wins, and the sponsor/prize donor does the actual picking of the winner.

 I’m pretty sure Eric would never think of telling a sponsor that they had to award another individual the same prize, because “they should have won it” or they “entered their name more times than the winner did, therefore they should get the prize instead.”

If it were a members-only drawing, us members would have a much better chance at winning. There’s been a time or two where I’ve entered my name 10 or more times in one drawing, but I’ve never won anything. It’s much more likely for a non-member to win than a member. 

There have been times where I’ve really wanted to have been the winner, but then I think “what if the winner had never owned a banjo/instruction books/____(you name it) in their life? Shouldn’t they have the privilege of winning the prize as well? It’s not like I need another banjo right now.”

It's also possible he signed on with just a username and not his real name and therefore you can't find him in a member search. Or, as has already been said, he may not be a member.

Wow, you have a real record for how many less posts than me!

Now, all I have to do is change my username to “the real pickup truck” and I KNOW I’ll win the next drawing!

wink

Again, congrats brother! When you get your hands on it let us know what you think. Better yet post some pictures of you pickin' or a video. It'll keep us (never won anything) dreamers, dreaming we'll win some day. Thanks man, Enjoy!

Congratulations Dave, I hope you love that banjo. I would love to hear your review after a month or two of playing, if you feel like it, but if you don't, no problem. Enjoy it....If you hate it I will offer to take it off your hands at no charge. Have fun!
