Thread Name: Song Challenge! Part 3
Subject: RE: SONG CHALLENGE! Part 3
For such a new 'Mudcat Tradition' (?), the SONG CHALLENGE! has turned up a wondrous bunch of nutters (and songwriters)!! If you haven't seen it yet, I've updated the 'Additions to Mudcat Songbook' thread and announced the winners of the SC!3 contest. I've also rearranged the Songbook page to set up a special category for the SONG CHALLENGE! Winners. I've got some ideas for more changes that I'll begin work on this weekend, the Good Lord willing and the creek don't rise...


Here are the agreed prize categories for the SONG CHALLENGE! entries. Good luck to all of you! (Note: Some awards have been given out already to past winners. Songs, authors and awards to be designated in the new version of the Songbook page sometime in the near future)


Golden Cow Chip Awards are given to all winners of the SONG CHALLENGE! Contest. These permanent awards and should be displayed proudly and prominently on your mantel. There is one caveat, however. If I find out that any receiver of the Golden Cow Chip Award has used their trophy in a local (or international) cow chip tossing contest, said Chip will be confiscated immediately and awarded to another Song Challenger.

The Shamrock Cluster is awarded for a high level of imagination in a song.

The Harp Ribbon is given for being able to make me fall on the floor laughing OR short out my keyboard with tears.

The Guinness Crest is awarded for causing BOTH Harp Ribbon conditions within one song.

Cleigh's Blue Fume Award is given to the best blues rendition of any challenge topic.
