 Hi Everyone,
          Well, The Great Hosta Photo Contest is finally over, and what a 
great contest it was! An amazing 811 new hostas now have their portraits in 
the HostaLibrary as a result. Carol Brashear, one of the people who helped 
Bob get the Library started and has contributed much over the years, is the 
winner with a truly awesome 270 entries. Karen Butner gave it a heck of a 
shot, but in the end couldn't catch Carol. If there's another contest next 
year, watch out for Karen. These two really worked for it, with a combined 
total of 473, they had more than half of the entries in the contest, and both 
had more than twice what their nearest competitor had. Carol wins the $200 
top prize and gets first pick of the plants. Karen wins the $125 second prize 
and second pick of the plants. Another newcomer Nathan Wood, and Ken Marek, 
finish third and win $60 and the third pick for their efforts and Ray Wiegand 
finishes fourth, winning $35 and the fourth pick. The other contestants in 
the order in which they finished are:
 
  1.  Carol in CT ..................270
  2.  Karen .........................203
  3.  Nathan Wood ...............97
  4.  Ray Wiegand ...............60
  5.  Erwin Van Delzen .........49
  6.  Bev Stegeman ..............29
  7.  Kent Terpening .............26
  8.  Alttara Scheer ..............19
  9.  Mike Ewald ..................14
 10. Josh Spece ...................9
 11. Pat Mora .......................7
 12. Aleesa Drennen .............6
 13. Cheryl Belobraydic .........5
 14. TIE --  Rachel Vincun .....4
                Kathy Miller .........4
 15. Bevie Schmidt ...............3
 16. TIE -- Randy Goodwin .....1
               Les Pickett ...........1
              Charlotte Miles .......1
              Michael Laico .........1
              Julie Kelty...............1
              Sue........................1
 
          If you are one of the winners, please stay tuned for further 
instructions on how to choose your plants from the list of prizes. This may 
take a while because not all contestants may be available to choose today. 
There are 13 prizes now in the Plants and Other Prizes section, so if you 
stand below #13 in the standings, there may be a chance if one of the 
higher-placing contestants declines a prize. If this happens, we'll have a 
tiebreaker for the #14 spot. Will all contestants please send their E-mail 
addresses to Bob at bobaxe@sbtek.net If there are any challenges to the 
results of this contest, please send them to me at njhosta@comcast.net and we 
will check all the records carefully and get back to you promptly with a 
response to your questions. As previously stated entries that were already 
submitted by other contestants were disallowed, as were plants that did not 
match their names, plants that did not yet have their own names, and plants 
that were already in the Library under other names even if those names were 
no longer correct or misspelled. 
         The organizers of the Great Hosta Photo Contest would like to thank 
everyone who entered photos to help buiild the HostaLibrary. It stands alone 
among plant websites in size and quality. Daylily and other groups can only 
envy what we hosta enthusiasts have. Thanks too go to the donors of all our 
prizes. They have surely spurred the contestants to greater efforts, and will 
doubtless be a much appreciated reward for all the time spent wandering 
around gardens with notebook and camera, and more time yet at home organizing 
and preparing to enter their pictures. Thanks to those who worked in the 
background checking and rechecking to be sure the credit went to the right 
person and that the hostas submitted weren't already there. And last of all 
thanks to Bob, for creating the Library for all of us to use, and for 
creating this contest to enrich it.
