Need some help voting - Gaugeplate



This is a little off topic, but I felt it's important and wanted to share.

This is an email from Chris Collman:


Hey everyone,

I know I mentioned this to some of you already, but our band Gaugeplate (www.myspace.com/gaugeplate) entered a contest to open for Godsmack!

We submitted a DVD consisting of 2 of our recent performances. Our DVD was chosen as one of the 10 finalists. The top two out of the ten will be submitted to Godsmack where they will decide who will open for them 5/25 @ the Chevy Theater in Wallingford CT.

Now this is where we need your help!! Starting Thursday morning (5/10) thru Monday morning (5/14) go to http://www.wccc.com and look for the section on the webpage regarding the godsmack contest. There you will be able to view our video and vote. Oh, and feel free to mention this to as many people as you can! They more the merrier. This is an unbelievable opportunity and we appreciate everyone's help!!!

Thanks again!

Chris

If you have a moment, please vote.

(Note: I know. This is way off topic. But for those who don't know, Collman attended our first Major Harpoon event - St. Patty's Day Festival 2006. Most likely you have heard this story, but Collman (and Carolyn) are main stream beer drinkers. Collman is a fan of the 30 rack. It's OK, but during this event he discovered the Harpoon UFO. We were happy to hear that he has purchased an occasional 12 pk - 6 pk of UFO at his local package store. This is news to our ears. Main stream beer drinkers can like microbrews!! -- This is why I like to be a 2beerguy. Try something new. If you don't like it, try something else new. -- Ok. Yes, this only counts with beer.)

From Collman:


I just wanted to take a second an thank all of youthat voted for Gaugeplate in the Godsmack contest. Although we didn't win, we did compile quite a fewvotes and turned a lot of heads in the local scene. We ended up with 600 votes and came in 4th place outof 10, which isn't bad for a band that's only a littleover a year old. Thanks again for all of your helpvoting! We couldn't have done it without ya's. Chris

    I voted, but they were in 4th place at the time of voting. Nrs. 2 and 3 were very close so they may jump ahead, but the number 1 spot was already so far ahead they'd have to be made one of those special offers that are so hard to refuse to let slip their first place at this point in time.

    I didt my bit, it's not going to be my fault if they don't make it.
