I've gotta be honest. When I started this contest with Mike from Misty I really didn't know what to expect, and I have a feeling that Mike didn't either. But being the cool guy that he is, he jumped on board enthusiastically to support the CCC and offered to donate the Powerpack. Things got off to a bit of a slow start because of the 4th of July holiday weekend, but after that the fundraiser just kept growing and growing. Seemed like every time I checked my email there was a new contribution from another climber committed to helping the CCC protect the amazing resource of the West side Rumbling Bald boulders. With everyone's help, we were able to not only meet, but also surpass, the CCC's $500 summer fundraiser goal for grand total of $560. So everyone who donated, please give yourselves some props. You came through for the CCC and made this fund drive a success. Frixtion, Misty, and the CCC all thank you in a big, big way. Saving the rocks we all enjoy is definitely a community effort, and we couldn't do it wihtout your help. Also, we have to give a final thanks to Deadpointmag.com for their promotional assistance. They really helped drive some numbers, too.
So without further ado, here are the contest winners!:
1. Matt De Camera wins the Misty Powerpack
2. Brian Payst wins the Petzl headlamp
3. Robert Rives wins the Adventure Photo book
The selection process: Everyone who entered got assigned a number. I then used an online random-number generator to select numbers in that range. The numbers that popped out in 1st, 2nd, and 3rd order won the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd prizes. Easy-peasy, right? Congrats to the winners and thanks again to everyone who donated. The Rumbling Bald boulders are that much closer to being paid off.
