I'm going to be on the road a LOT for the next two weeks. Do you send an email or message here to winners in case we forget to check this thread? (Thinking positive!)

I will send a direct email to everyone who sent money during the pledge drive, on Monday around noon ET. The prizes will be awarded on a first come, first served basis ... there are some great prizes left that will work perfectly for the right person.
