It's going to be one hell of a battle, can't wait...Good Luck to ALL ENTRIES! (first)

I haven't fared well here before when I tried. I'm giving it my best shot this month. Good luck to all who entered. There's a little bit of every ones style represented in the spread I think. Happy to have such cool competition. :)
The above was posted and removed because I hadn't finished setting up this thread yet, so I've quoted it above...Cool post and well said, Cityracer! (2thumbs)
