Left behind

(found this on the floor in my wife's grandfather's old barn on his farm in ohio - I brought it home for my dad because he was born in june, 1950. he looked through it and thought it was the coolest thing, and some of the stuff in it was hilarious)

no matter how you count the votes ( even if you count or don't count no motor's late vote or the way i voted) it looks like macfred had to win so he would get to pick july.

also

After that, the June contest will have prizes as well to get it on a fiscal schedule, and then September, Dec March and June.....

For the prize contests, previous lifetime Ti winners and staff are not eligible, to reserve it for the members who would specifically benefit from it.

Sorry for the delay everyone. They have installed a monitoring program on the computers at work and I have been on the forums less. Couple that with the short term memory of a goldfish and you get very delayed results.

By my math, Macfred takes first, thesciguy takes second, and there is a tie between clemsongirl and jbchyrider for third. Since not all votes were cast for the categories, we can't really declare a winner for those.

I ran numbers based on the points system, but I did just wake up, and have had no tea. If anyone wants to check those numbers, that is fine.

I decided to add an additional Ti Prize since there was a tie for third. Congratulations to Macfred, who takes first, the sci guy, who takes second, and there is a tie between clemsongirl and jbchyrider, and since clemsongirl was so altruistic, I couldn't decide between them, and awarded both with Ti for Life. Congrats to all 4 of ya!
