@Dave -- who got 5th place? You only listed 4 in the winners post.

So first place gets first dibs! As runner up prizes, the 3rd, 4th and 5th place winners will each get from me 50 acorns. Smiling

You're right!! I have no idea how that slipped past me but I only printed out four of the winners. I'll go back into the system and see who got drawn as the fifth. Thank you for that! I'll post the update here.
