Linglestown Gazette: Mini-Mowing Contest winners declared

Mini-Mowing Contest winners declared

I did my best to put off the first lawn mowing at Gazette headquarters, but I started picking up vibes Easter Sunday from Mrs. B² that the time to git-er-done was at hand. My trusty Honda push mower started on the first pull Monday, April 13, and I toured the yard in record time. Prize winners for the Mini-Mowing Contest were revealed in a video and are listed below:

GRAND PRIZE WINNER: Beth Stewart, a reader from my hometown of Dillsburg, told me she used a complex set of algorithms and flow charts to come up with her guess of April 13. She will receive great prizes from three Linglestown merchants – $25 gift certificate for First Impressions Boutique, Gifts & Day Spa, 50-percent off any service at Shag hair salon, and a free studio sitting and photos at Kelli Wyland Photography.

2ND PLACE: Lisa Rundle, a Blue Meadows Farm resident, was a day off with her April 14 guess. Her near-miss guess earns her a $10 gift certificate at St. Thomas Roasters coffee house and a coupon for a free massage and discussion with a doctor at Homza Chiropractic Wellness and Rehab.

3RD PLACE: Rose Baker of Linglestown snagged third place, winning some loot in a tie-breaker with another entrant who more or less guessed April 11 (more on this in a second). Her prize package is the same as the one for second place.

CONSOLATION WINNER: Longtime Gazette reader and B² neighbor Scott Starr submitted the correct date, April 13, but indicated that the 13th was a Saturday. (Saturday was April 11.) Scott, Scott, Scott! The rules committee relegated him into a third-place tie with Rose, and he lost the tie-breaker drawing. Never fear, Scott, you're not going away empty-handed. You've earned a Roasters gift certificate and a free Homza massage.

Gazette thanks go out to the Linglestown merchants for filling up the prize bin, and to all readers who entered. It pays to visit the Gazette!

By the way, gets called a "dork" by his camera operator in the contest wrap-up video. I'm now accepting applications for a new crew member.
