Also too….we held a contest to see who could predict the most winners for NYFCC & LAFCA this week. I am proud to say that there was a tie for first place and as a result, we threw all four names in a randomizer to choose a winner…

Congratulations to Daniel Glyn who got 11 out of 26 categories correct and was chosen from the randomizer!!!!

The other three individuals to also get 11 correct were:

Andrew Carden
William Mann
Joshua Parham

And then rounding it out with high scores were:

Matt St Clair – 10
Mouhamed Sagne – 10
Clare Henry – 9
Shane Slater – 9
Sam Coffey – 8
Joel Melendez – 8

​Thank you to everyone who participated! There will be more contests as the 2017 awards race rolls on.
