    Grand Prize winner

    I entered the HF vintage hammock contest last fall. I made the knapsack/backpack for those that are new.


    Brian from OES graciously put up the grand prize of any of his tarps. I asked for a purple standard maccat. He said "If it is a purple maccat you want then it is a purple maccat you shall recieve".

    It looks blue in the photo but it is more of a purple. His work is fantastic as usual. I don't mind it if any of you get a little envious. Thanks Brian for contibuting such a great prize.
    Peace Dutch

    I'm Jealous. I want a cool colored MacCat standard. I'm lacking in the tarp department only have Micro in Spinntex a Deluxe and a WB superfly. Not enough options.

    You are one tarp from being greedy. You have a micro and a superfly, how could you really need more?

    A micro and a Superfly would have everything covered, except having it in a cool purple color like Dutch's tarp.

    Yes, thanks to Brian for the cool purple tarp, but you earned it, for sure.

    Congrats. It's kindof a shame that all of the contestants couldn't win some sort of consolation prize, as hard as everyone worked on theirs. It was a cool contest.

    I'm glad you don't mind anyone getting envious cuz I think i'll go ahead and jump on that bandwagon.
    Very nice, congrats.

    Congratulations, Dutch, I like your vintage backpack-hammock very much. Well done!
