Welcome to Frijid Pink's 17th "Free Magic Giveaway Contest".
Contests 9 through 12 were held on the Spookclub Forums, all the others were held on these Penguin Forums.
As mentioned before I've decided to share some of my magic with fellow Magicians that I no longer have a use for or have decided I can live without. This contest comes at absolutely no cost to you. The items I'm giving away are totally free, I even pay the postage.
Please pay particular attention to all Rules and Restrictions. Any deviations could possibly result in your disqualification from this contest.
CONTEST RULES AND RESTRICTIONS ...
(1) Only those who reside in the US are eligible.
Reason/s: My investment of the item to be won is has already come out of my own pocket ... and the shipping/postage is coming out of my own pocket. I am on a limited Disability Income, disabled and have difficulty getting to the Post Office. Winner will receive the item secured in simple packaging with Stamp/Post Office postage. Nothing special, but what the heck, it's FREE to you! I apologize for the residential restriction but maybe some of you other countymen could consider running your own contest/s.
(2) All entrants must have a minimum of 300 posts on the Penguin Magic Forums.
You must have at least shown that you are a contributor to the Penguin Forums and not just entered the Contests with a minimum amount of posts to take advantage of a free magic offer. Your other contributions, financial and/or purchases from Penguin Magic are not my concern, only your post contributions. In order to be fair too those who enter my Contests that have
contributed to the Forums, I have to ask that all
entrants who enter have made a fair contribution as well.
Other than the above, all Penguins are eligible ... meaning any registered member of the Penguin Magic Forums who reside in the US, and have a minimum post count of 300.
(3) Only one (1) entry per person.
Attempting to make more than one entry in any form will result in immediate disqualification. This means no use of multiple user names or editing of messages to change your guesses/answers to the contest. All edited/changed guesses/answers will result in disqualification.
The Penguin Forum Moderators can and will check for infractions on multiple user names and message editing on all entries. ..... You have been warned.
(4) Winner must be available to be PM'ed or E-mailed.
When the winner is chosen and announced I will need a way to contact them to get their address to send them the prize/s won.
(5) After notification you will have one (1) week to claim your winning Prize/s.
Make a note to yourself, or write down on your Calender, the date of the Contest ending time so that you may check back to see if you’ve won. After 1 week of notification all unclaimed Prizes will automatically default to the second winner.
(6) At the end of the Contest I will make a post to announce the winner. I will then notify the winner for their address and the topic will be open for comments and congratulations to the winner, and I'll start my next contest soon after.

To An Athlete Dying Young
by A. E. Houseman
The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
To-day, the road all runners come,
Shoulder-high we bring you home,
And set you at your threshold down,
Townsman of a stiller town.
Smart lad, to slip betimes away
From fields where glory does not stay,
And early though the laurel grows
It withers quicker than the rose.
Eyes the shady night has shut
Cannot see the record cut,
And silence sounds no worse than cheers
After earth has stopped the ears:
Now you will not swell the rout
Of lads that wore their honors out,
Runners whom renown outran
And the name died before the man.
So set, before its echoes fade,
The fleet foot on the sill of shade,
And hold to the low lintel up
The still-defended challenge-cup.
And round that early-laurelled head
Will flock to gaze the strengthless dead,
And find unwithered on its curls
The garland briefer than a girl's.
Now, without further ado, let's get on with it ... whadaya say?
Make your entries.
GOOD LUCK TO ALL WHO PARTICIPATE.
