Hi
Ok, so I bet many of you forgot or thought I would forget or if truth be told, couldn't really give a rats bottom either way, but as it is I never forgot which means, yes indeedy one of you lucky lucky people could be the proud owner for an entire year of the most splended First Eggsac of the Year Eggcup Thing!

Now is that quality or what? thum-up.gif

This most prestigious and sort after of awards was started last year with my most amazing achivement http://www.the-t-store.co.uk/forum/index.php?showtopic=11376&hl= but it is now time to pass the crown or rather eggcup onto the next worthie candicate.

So here are the rules that will enable you to be the winner:-

1. The eggsac must have been constructed on the 1st of January 2009 or onwards!
2. You must show a picture of the eggsac.
3. The winner must email their address to me so that they can recieve the eggcup.
4. Once the eggcup is recieved a photo must be posted of the winner holding the eggcup and your face must be in the photo also.
5. The winner must agree that on completion of the year they will post the eggcup on to the next winner.
6. Only tarantula eggsacs count.
7. You must have more than 20 posts on the Tarantula store forum to be able to enter.
8. entries must be posted on this thread.

Well I think thats about it but if there are questions just ask.
Just look at what YOU could be the winner of for a whole year no less! Just see it sparkle! f1.gif

The cup came to me clouded in mystery and mysticism from my alien friend Neep Neep (An name from the past eh wink.gif ) who told me to start these awards. Alas I have never won the award so my image does not deserve nor can behold the greatness of being posted on the thread of fame. Maybe in time if I win.

All the best

Did Neep Neep not leave earth after a bit of a menage et trois between him yourself and Bo or did it get fined by the MIB for smugging a (hard) suit case of "Spiders from Mars"??.

Posted by: Chris Allen December 29, 2010 04:43 am
Almost that time again!!!

Posted by: Tomasz Drozdzal December 31, 2010 04:50 pm
Yep! I have just checked my spiders and it seems that only A.versicolor is about to drop an eggsac!

Unfortunatelly it seems that she still needs a couple days more... ;-(

Good luck everybody! ;-)

Just found this one an hour ago :-) The other H.minax female on the right looks promising too!

What's more it looks like P.ornata female has an eggsac for about a week now and P.fasciata is about to drop one too!

It seems to be a promising season :-)
