Guinness grant  

I thought I’d said, but maybe I didn’t!

I closed out the Arthur Guinness Projects popularity vote contest with 2976 votes. The leader had just under 4500, and I’m pretty clearly in the top 10%. I think I might have been #6 overall.

So now we wait. :) The judges will be announcing their decisions sometime in September, but I don’t know when exactly. Someone hypothesized it would be the 26th, which is the Guinness-invented holiday Arthur’s Day, and having had that hypothesis suggested to me, it’s OBVIOUSLY what *I* would do, but I’ve no idea what they’ll do. :)

Anyway, I’m certainly in with a chance, and it’ll be exciting to see what happens! Fingers crossed! :)

Yay! I knew it had closed (from trying to vote after the fact), but I'm chuffed to hear you're in the top 10%. I presume this means Swan River did quite well, too.

Swan River landed in 2nd place with a vote gap of only like 40 votes, so yeah. :)
