500/5,000 Drawing RESULTS!

The results are in!

First, I want to thank everyone who participated in the contest and for those taking the time to visit.  Not everyone can win but many did and those winners ended with one of their top picks too.  An armload of books will be hitting the post office shortly.

Second, as the random sampling results show, making it into the Top 10 Commenters paid dividends.  Frequent commenting was rewarded in the manner in which the ballot system was constructed.  Also good to see a few infrequent commenters make it into the prize list.  Notice rather than the eight books offered up as prizes originally, I pulled ten names from the sampling bin.  Two of the more requested titles got tapped twice.

Anyway, on to the prize distribution.
Winner: El Grego 
Winner: Michael Peterson
Winners: AHunt &
Christopher (aka Axebreaker) 
Winner: Bluebear Jeff
Winner: Gonsalvo
Winners: Samuli S &
Phil (aka Ms. DBA) 
Winner: Phil (Associaton les Riflemen)
Winner: Black Powder 
Congratulations to the 10 winners.  To collect, simply send an email via the Contact Form (shown below) containing your preferred mailing address:

Several books were in many contestants' Top 3 list.  Hyde's Wargaming Compendium was one of the most requested.  With such demand, I will consider offering up another copy in a future Give-away.

What?  Ray did not have his name drawn?  How could that be?  Well, Ray, to maintain your unbroken string of uncanny prize wins, send me your mailing address details.  I have a Consolation Prize for you.

For the winners, enjoy the books and please let me know when they arrive.

    1. Once the Compendium arrives and you have had a chance for a look, perhaps you could treat us to a review?

    1. My copy of AMW arrived in the post yesterday. It looks very good and I look forward to reading it when time permits.

      It is much thicker than I expected, clocking in at about 275 pages. Interesting stuff!

  7. Thank you, Jonathan. I am back on chemo again as of today so I will probably find lots of reading time as my fatigue level increases. I am of course delighted that I won and the Naseby book was my first choice too . . . so I am doubly lucky.

    Best wishes to you, sir . . . and many thanks.

    1. Chattiness paid off! This is a more positive connotation to the phrase, "the squeaky wheel gets the oil."
