 Clarinet Bulletin Board Poetry Contest
Author: GBK 2017
Date:   2009-03-18 20:42

At the request and urging of Dave Spiegelthal, we are now accepting submissions for the:

1st (and maybe the last) Clarinet Bulletin Board Poetry Contest.

Mark and I have decided that this event could be a nice diversion from the often mundane and repetitive discussions which take place almost daily on the bulletin board.

We will be the sole judge of all entries and our decision is final.


The simple rules are as follows:

1. All entries must be original works created by yourself.

2. All submissions must have the word "clarinet" somewhere in the poem.

3. Any form of poetry, limerick, rhyming verse, etc... is acceptable, however extra consideration will be given to those that rhyme and read pleasingly with consistent rhythm and number of syllables.

4. Clever rhymes, humor and current discussion topics (you all know what they are) related to the clarinet, clarinet playing and its joys and frustrations are most welcome.

5. Please post your submissions only on this thread. Do not comment on others' works as it may or may not influence the outcome.

6. Unlike auditions, you may enter and submit as many original poems as you wish.

7. [ Late addition - MC ] No matter how good GBK thinks he is - he can't win. I, on the other hand, am so bad I will not embarrass myself by entering.


The winner will be announced after a designated time period to be determined, or when we've all grown bored and tired of reading these attempts.

The winning participant will be crowned "Clarinet Poet Laureate" for the calendar year 2009 and will receive five (5) vintage sealed Vibrator clarinet reeds from 1978, strength 2 1/2 (original cost was 25 cents each - today's value, probably less).

So....put down your clarinet and let's see how creative you REALLY are. [wink]
