So, I thought it might be nice for us to have a pumpkin carving competition (though I've not asked Shaz about this so might be being a bit cheeky) :D

So, carve a pumpkin, take a picture, upload it here and (pending poll results)win a prize!

PRIZES ARE:

1st= £30 gift voucher for The Spider Shop
2nd= One Hapalopus sp. colombia large spiderling +p&p

No excuses, even if you hate pumpkins just get creative and carve something else!

On 31st October at 3pm (so you have ample time!) I'll knock up a poll, which we will leave until 5th November, 3pm then announce the winner. As usual, common decency dictates that you will not vote for your own entry!

Sound good?

3...

2......

1.........

GO.

Oh one last thing: Be nice, don't cheat.

I couldn't give away free millipedes MissCat :laugh:

I'll buy a pumpkin next time I go shopping and try to come up with something without copying the design from the internet.

Not sure if I should get a little one or a big one

Updated with prizes: bear in mind I am footing this myself, therefore there are no cars or holidays to Madagascar up for grabs!

I know that vouchers for The Spider Shop are perhaps a little bit of a cop out but I figured the winner could then either choose what invert they wanted from his stocklist, give it away to another invert enthusiast for christmas or basically do whatever the hell they want with it! Thought it would be better than just giving away a random spider or other invert that not everyone may want.

Annnnyway. Carry on... ^_^

We have 5, though I'm not entering as it's a conflict of interests and I don't want to be accused of fixing it... don't know if that extends to Mark or not though...
