As I’m sure you all knew because you woke up early this morning to check, doakley won this month’s contest with a wild guess that just happened to be correct. With that daily victory, doakley also set a record for most wins in one week, 4 out of the 5 days. Congratulations to doakley, and thanks to everyone who participated and even to those who lurked for making the contest fun and exciting (well, it was for me, I hope it was for you too). You’re all winners in my book!!
Doakley will receive an attractive and professional-seeming certificate that can be proudly displayed on the wall along with diplomas and other impressive paperwork, when I get around to creating said certificate. Until then she will have to be content in the knowledge that she is “Mississippi Preservationist Extraordinaire for July 2009″ and that’s something that no one can ever take away.
I’m open to suggestions for our next contest–how about the time of day? In my own defense, I did try a poll before this week and hardly anyone voted, so I don’t feel guilty about the early morning. What about a themed contest: courthouses, churches, architectural styles? Or doing a whole week in a certain city or region? Now’s the time to speak up or forever hold your peace.
Here’s the final tally:
- Monday: Joseph A
- Tuesday: doakley
- Wednesday: doakley
- Friday: doakley
- doakley: 8 points
- Carunzel: 6 points
- tsj1957: 3 points
- Joseph A: 2 points
- Tom Barnes: 2 points
- Theodore: 1 measley point–you still get a trophy for participating though :-)
To Relive the Whole Week, the Thrill of Victory, the Agony of Defeat:
Monday: Name This Place #1
Tuesday: Name This Place #2
Wednesday: Name This Place #3
Thursday: Name This Place #4
Thursday: Bonus Round
Friday: Name This Place #5
9.00 am seems very sane to me. But of course I was continuously beaten out by the early bird doakley!
I agree about 9 AM, Anonymous. I’m confused though–I don’t remember anyone named Anonymous participating last week . . .
First time posting from the iPhone. Giving away my anonymity
Lol, you’re too techie for your own good :-)
Ok, now that I have someone to agree with I agree about 9 am, Tsj1957.
