This contest ends at noon Oct. 4. Winners will be chosen at random. Winners' usernames will be posted on the site by 9 p.m. Oct. 4. I'll email the winners by then as well. Winners must respond to the email by noon Oct. 6 or a runner-up will be chosen. Good luck!

Congratulations to our winners: nclighthouses, findabb and buffaloemorris. Check your email and get back to me!
