Final POTM for 2009 - Winner Announced!

Post by Myaj » Wed Dec 09, 2009 4:39 pm

Okay everyone, due to a combination of not enough entries sent in and me having a ton of overtime, illnesses and other busy-stuff going on, we're combining all our entries from Oct-Dec into one final, end of the year POTM. That adds up to 12 entries, so there's an extra 2 thrown in over our usual 10, but that's just the way its going to go :)

So, lets get this voting done with so we can move on to our POTY competition! The winners of all of our POTM competitions will be entered into the Puffer of the Year contest, with a prize of a gift certificate to the Puffer Store, their photo featured all year on the home page, and of course, extreme bragging rights :)

Voting on this Oct/Nov/Dec POTM will start today, Dec 9th, and run for 10 days. At that point, the winner will be announced and the POTY will begin shortly thereafter. As usual, you may only vote once, and you may not change your vote. Tie's will be broken via a tiebreaker vote.

Remember, click on each thumbnail to open it up to view at full size. Let the voting begin!
