    Congratulations and well done!

    I gotta say I'm inspired. Gotta go back to the wood shed, bring some supplies and lock the door for a bit.

    That sort of stuff is some of my favorite style of playing.

    Thanks for sharing.

  6. Well done Jeff!

    I was so excited to hear about this competition earlier in the year, and nearly entered it myself - sounds like the competition was pretty awesome!
