DATE ANNOUNCEMENT FOR UPCOMING GUITAR CUP
The 2017-2018 35th Anniversary season of Guitar Cup is upon us! The Cup has enjoyed it's well-deserved sojourn in Hamilton but the time has come to test the field of competition once again. Don't worry, you'll all have a solid year to get your entries together. After lengthy consideration I have picked the auspicious date of 81818. That translates as Saturday August 18, 2018 and it will take place in Hamilton. The venue is not set as of yet but will be announced in due time. I hope you can all come and participate. Good Luck on your entries.
Your presiding Champion & Guitar Cup Committee Chair,
Neil (Not retiring yet) Ross

NEW GUITAR CUP SITE LAUNCHED
Welcome to the newly revamped Guitar Cup website, where you'll find everything Guitar Cup. Many thanks to Guitar Cup Committee chairman, Neil Ross for providing the new artwork. This site has been tested with the latest versions of IE, Chrome, Firefox, Opera and Safari, although there are a few bugs with Safari. Please email me if there are any issues. The GC site does not currently work on IOS because Apple sucks and does not support flash on their mobile devices.
Check out the brand new Wall of Champions to listen to hits from all the Guitar Cup champs or browse through the Archives to listen to all the entries and radio broadcasts from each year.
I'm still waiting on photos from some of you, as well as some missing tracks and titles. Please send all photos, tracks and info to email@example.com and enjoy the new site.
