UK fogger needs your help
« on: March 06, 2016, 09:16 AM »
Hi all you may have noticed my posts in the win £5000 of festool thread. If you have and you've voted then thanks and I hope you're still voting everyday.

If this is news to you and you live in the UK then pull your finger out and get voting!!

 I was selected with 9 other people for the finals of the www.festool-sysrock.co.uk competition.

Please view all the videos and hopefully you like mine enough to vote for me. Oh and maybe you have friends and family who would like to vote too ;)

Here is a direct link to my voting page http://www.festool-sysrock.co.uk/?m=28

You have 3 days left to vote as it ends midnight Tuesday .You could also win yourself a festool sysrock radio.

Please help a fellow FOG member

Thanks

Chris

Maybe I am missing something but has there been anything from Festool UK to promote the competition since the 10 finalists were chosen? If I have missed it then my apologies to them.

Good luck Chris and the rest of the 10 shortlisters.

Chris,
I thoroughly enjoyed the video.  I can't believe that song was released when I was in high school!

Unfortunately, like many other Festool goodies, voting on this is NAINA so I could only vote for you in spirit!

Good Luck to you!

I'm happy in the fact that I had the most youtube views :)

I've had the 1010 a few years and only just picked up the 1400. I might end up selling the 1400 as I got because I couldn't really justify the 2200. Then this happens and I can :).
