The CUP Contest is OVER! CARLY Wins!

The answer to yesterday’s contest was indeed, the bottoms of my Vibram Five Fingers. Skeletoes was also acceptable.

Here’s the points break down:

Carly AND Lance Finney receive 100 points for accurately answering at the same time (per the time stamp on their comments).

Erin gets 25 points for guessing Vibrams, Jude gets 25 points for guessing the bottom of a trainer (a training shoe).

Noelle, Jeremy and Vicki get 15 points for pipping in with comments and congratulations for Carly. And speaking of…

Congratulations to CARLY for winning the CUP contest! Expect the CUP Winners page to be updated and finalized in the next 24 hours. For now, here’s the top 10 player rankings:

Per the CUP Contest rules, Carly wins bragging rights forever and ever AND she wins the lame-o prize of getting to choose any topic that she’d like to see me do a blog about.  From the CUP Winners page:

It can be a serious or humorous topic, it can be requested to be audio, video, written or – help us all – drawn/painted/sculpted or some other artistic rendering.  It can be on something I know nothing about, or something that I’ve written about in the past.  It can be dedicated to someone.  I will even include links if I approve of them beforehand.  I will reserve the right to veto any aspect of the request because I’m not going to do a post on something that could harm or embarrass me or other people in a bad way.  But other than that, all is fair game.

So Carly, let me know. You can email or tweet me the topic you’d like me to address or you can put it right down there in the comments.

I’m also announcing that I have special prizes for the top 5 ranking players. Since October 2010 there have been 29 CUPs. I am putting together a photo book of the 29 CUPs and the accompanying full-view photos. I will mail these to the top 5 players if they are wanted: Carly, Vicki, Erin, Noelle and Jeremy. With the exception of Erin, I’ll need you to email me ([email protected]) your snail mail addresses if you’d like me to send them to you. Depending on price, I may have additional books or collections of the photos that I can mail out to other players if there is an interest. Let me know in the comments or by email.

Thanks for playing, everyone. You made this an incredibly fun endeavor.

    Oh! Nice prize! But I think it will cost a bit to send mine to me! Can I donate mine to Michelle who is 6th on the list?

      *sigh* I know, it will be pricey to hand-deliver to you, but when I commit, I follow through! *wink* You know better than I do about shipping, lady. I’ll contact you offline to discuss the options.

        I’m pretty sure that in the fine fine fine fine fine print of the CUP contest rules it states that the winner must accompany any hand deliveries made outside of the country ;)

      I will definitely be here to accept it if you hand deliver! We can have a ceremony at the end of the dock!

    This is so awesome! I’d like to thank my mom & dad… But really, I’d like to thank you, Bri, for giving me something to anticipate. It’s been so much fun! And I love the idea of the photo book. Thanks for putting this on!
