POE5 Ends – And the Winners Are:
The 2012 Peace on Earth Hunt is over. Awards are in order for those who made this year’s hunt a success (for me and, maybe, for you, too).
Best Advice from Others Award: The award goes to the BLOGGER who said to search five places each day. The hunt lasted 37 days, there were 200 stores participating, at five per day = well, you do the math. It worked out beautifully.
Most Ingenious Clue Award: PRISM Designs. Clue: “hiding by the object that has two hands but no arms, and a face but no nose.”
Honorary Mention: BOHO HOBO. Clue: “Do Ray Me Fa So La Tee Do. (Sung backwards, you’ll hear the clue in the middle)” = So Fa = Sofa.
Most Enjoyable Hiding Place Award: AMACCI. It is obvious Amacci understands the spirit of gifting during the holiday season, and knows how to do it with a sense of humor.
Tradition and Consistency Award: ROCKBERRY – It is always a pleasure to visit a store that freely and generously gives, year after year.
Special “Walk This Way” Award : ARTIZANA
Lifetime Achievement Award: This award goes to SEQUOIA NIGHTFIRE for pulling the grid-wide hunt together for the fifth year (with bonus points thrown in for maintaining her cool during the entire time of the hunt).
Honorary Mention: To all the POE ELVES who worked tirelessly to help Sequoia, so she could get a wee bit of rest during the long, long month of the hunt.
Finally, the Better-Late-Than-Never Award: To ME, for actually completing the hunt – any hunt – for the first time.
Well done, Winners, one and all.
