Well, it is March. We will not reference current events. But I miss March Madness Basketball and I have something to maybe take us in a different direction. A Contest! Woohooo! As some of you might have remembered up until last year I would always have a March Madness Challenge to guess the Champion in college basketball. I would always provide a musical prize. I gave away guitars, pedals, a banjo and a mandolin one year. Even a Tele type guitar once. I loved that contest and I miss it but events around here changed everything when the site was sold. But now we are solid again. Things are good. We need a new contest. Don't need no stinkin' sports! Short Story Contest. I will provide the rules, open to everyone, musical prize will be sent to one winner. Here we go!
