Finally we have a winner after several recounts since Christmas Eve Day

Congratulations to Roberto who is this year’s winner and will get a 1st prize check of $7.25 (Thomas has your check). Normally he would have received a trophy, but since the trophy was an ice sculpture it melted on Christmas day. It was one of the best “CDS095” images ever made from ice and because CDS095 freezes up once in a while, the material fit the subject matter. The good news is before the melt-down a small cube was saved and placed in the refrigerator in the cafeteria. The bad news is, there was a small Christmas celebration and the cube was used to cool a drink. (Next year we need a freezer on hand just in case).

Plans are already in progress for next year and because Joe S. had the drink that used the small trophy cube, he is in charge. Voting for the trophy image will begin on January 5th.

We have nothing else to report except to wish everyone we know a Happy New Year and the same to everyone we don’t yet know.

Just too clear up any questions on the amount of the 1st prize check which is normally $10,000.00. This year’s check is a net amount with the following expenses deducted: The daily fees for renting the voting machine, which was on hand for five days of recounts, the sculpting of the trophy, and operating fee (Don’t ask) all came out to $9,992.75.
