Here's the deal with the Ant Contest.
The winner is:
Andrew Taylor of Red Deer, Alberta
Andrew if you see this before your e-mail, you won. If not, check your e-mail.
Andrew's entry was:
This is like The Lion King. I'm the helpless animals living in Africa and you're the Lion. You can either be a good king like Simba and pick me or you can be a bad king like the uncle who killed Simba's dad. Are you a murderer? ARE YOU????? Hakunamatatah.
The winning entry was chosen solely by Anthony, so if you thought yours was better, don't blame me.
I apologize for the delay in announcing this, but I just got the winning name back from Harvey at Freeskier yesterday. Even though the contest ended sometime ago, it took this long to announce the winner for several reasons.
1. Harvey had to e-mail me all the entries. This took longer than usual because he was all over the world getting stories for next year for you to all enjoy.
2. Anthony had to read ALL the entries, (there were nearly 1,000 of you who entered.) This also took longer than usual because as a pro skier, Anthony was also travelling the world making an insane segment for Poor Boyz for next year.
3. I had to send the winning entry back to Harvey so he could tell me the name/address of that person. This took a while again, for the same reason as above.
Congrats to Andrew, and thanks to everyone who entered. Next year we'll try to do the contest earlier in the year, probably starting in August for the first athlete.
