In the spirit of St Patrick’s Day and looking forward to Spring, Castle will hold our very first Limerick Contest!  The winning limerick writer will receive a $250 Gift Certificate for Handyman Services.  One definition of “limerick” we found is: “a kind of humorous verse of five lines, in which the first, second, and fifth lines rhyme with each other, and the third and fourth lines, which are shorter, form a rhymed couplet”.

With that in mind, put your thinking caps on, get your creativity flowing and get your limericks submitted for Castle’s 1st Annual Limerick Contest!  Our very own Troy Sinykin took inspiration for his limerick below, from our St Paul Showroom’s mascot, whose seasonal festive apparel is always the talk of the town.

There was a fine company in
the City who
 thought their showroom was pretty. 
o be the best of them all,
they hung a deer on the wall and
St Patty’s Day they were all witty.”



* Limericks submitted must contain five lines and will be judged by Castle staff on creativity and rhyme. Only one submission per person, and we thank all for keeping your limericks “clean” and refraining from offensive content.

* Limericks must be submitted via email to Loren@Castlebri.com by 5:00pm on March 17th, 2012 in order to be judged. Judging will follow and the winner and their limerick will be announced in the next Castle News.

* The 2012 Limerick winner will receive a Castle Gift Certificate for $250 in Handyman Services.

We look forward to all your entries!
