What everybody's wearing this season. Well, it's what one person may be...and it could be you!
It's this month's pick...
It seems just about everybody is aware of the regular new draw open to all current BowieNet subscribers that we started last month. (05.01.06 NEWS: MONTHLY BOWIENET GIVE-AWAY STARTS TODAY)
We're still working on getting new additions to the BowieNet vaults photographed and listed, and we hope to have that up and running shortly. The autographed shirt above, (see actual autograph below) which was owned and worn by David Bowie circa 1987, is just one example of the stuff you can expect to find in the vault...and it could be yours in exchange for 2,500 points.
I have been asked if winners can club together to amass points for some of the bigger items, and of course we have no problem with that...as long as they can agree on fair time-share ownership!!
And so, on to the list of the five winners for the May draw:
1st prize = 500 points to nature_boy
2nd prize = 400 points to colinwhite
3rd prize = 300 points to adeline
4th prize = 200 points to georgina23
5th prize = 100 points to matt
A further 200 points each were gathered by BowieNetters Excelsiordivine and ZiggyStarGirl on the MBs, when I set a quick competition asking for a picture of David actually wearing the above shirt. Excelsiordivine was the first to post something that seems to fit the bill, with a small mono picture of DB wearing the shirt in a shot with Peter Frampton.
But, I thought ZiggyStarGirl also deserved to win for finding the Denis O'Reagan shot below. Zardoz may yet have earned himself 200 points, but the jury is currently out over whether his contribution qualifies or not.
I wish somebody would hurry up and invent the iPod...this thing's fucking heavy!

There will be a fresh chance each month to send in your name, and don't wait for us to tell you so, you can just start sending in on the first day of each new month
Each contest will close at midnight UK time on the last day of each month, with winners being announced a day or two later.

As I say, we'll be posting details of the new items as we get them, so you don't have to worry about choosing anything just yet. Good luck kidz!
