Great Guitar Giveaway Winner

Congratulations to the winner of our Great Guitar Giveaway: Al Ozog, a 60-year-old television engineer from Butler PA.
Al didn't place his order until last Tuesday, the day before the deadline, but his was the name chosen at random. He wins the first real electric guitar ever owned by ApologetiX lead guitarist Karl Messner -- a red Yamaha RGX he got in 1986, played in concert since 1993, and used on most of our CDs.
Here's what Al had to say when he heard the news:
I'm really elated! I've spent 40 years in TV broadcasting, and your group, ApologetiX is the first group that I was ever close to being a groupie of. I mention this to my contempories all the time and they just scratch their heads. But I'm getting more of them exposed to your ministry and only then do they understand.
Praise God! I am really glad that you have chosen this labor of love and have chosen to minister to us all, your audience, who are then immediately your fans. I believe that you are collectively called for this ministry for this season of life. I'm convinced that ApologetiX is bigger than you know and maybe that is OK ...
Thanks for all of the hard, back breaking work you do at each concert and the writing and practicing and traveling in between. Thanks again.
