Alas, I am not on Facebook, twitter, of Do-Tell. But it's all good, I have a custom being made just for me, without having to go through the ardors of a contest. Besides, I'm not much for hard travel anymore. All is well. But I appreciate the heads-up.

I think this sounds absolutely wonderful - but, even as an IT professional for over 35 years, I could not, for the life of me, figure out how to log in to Instagram.

It’s almost worse than the UMGF

Not that I actually wanted to, that is, but, it was a requirement for entry.

I had no idea how extensive the Emerald operation is! That was an interesting look behind the scenes. Impressive!

No Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter for me so I'm disqualified

Very nice place though and great to see the great Wizard of Donegal on a behind-the-scenes tour. I will own an Emerald someday.

I'm with Steel, just not social enough to have the media ties necessary. But the contest is really appealing--get picked up at the airport, transported to the site, coddled and cared for--doesn't get much better than that.

I would think that Kramster would be all over this and he must have a friend somewhere to help enjoy the trip.

And even if he doesn't have a friend to share the trip, he can always turn to his relatives, like his favorite uncle. We could fly united, get coddled, bond and reminisce about unshared history, and so forth. We could play together and Mr. K could have a signature guitar. This is win win win.

There is a piano in Ireland calling my name...I want to believe anyway

Finally had a chance to watch the video (in peace). It was nicely done. Looks like Emerald has a really nice setup. That would be a great trip to win if I never had 3 small kids and a needy wife (oops did I say that out loud). It was pretty funny seeing Kevin in every room that Alistair entered playing an instrument.

Yes that was pretty cool and a different one each room I think

Would it be OK for me to send my favorite Uncle E and Cousin K to go see Alistair and pick up an instrument for me if I weren't able to get away from work after winning this contest?

Um, what about your brother from another mother?
