SARATS Flip Flop - Let's End This Thing

It seemed like a good idea at the time. I mean collecting "video votes" to decide the SARATS winner. The thing is, I don't have the time to get out there and do it, and I don't want this contest to drag on forever. So here's what I wanna do instead: Let the entrants decide.

I will be sending an email to every entrant asking them to visit this page and vote for any two trees other than their own in the comments. I made it two trees because I couldn't decide between my top two and figured others might be in the same boat. I kind of like this format and may well use it next year as well depending on how it goes... it seems kind of fitting to let those who bothered to enter decide the winner.

So, without further ado, here are the 2011 SARATS entries for your consideration!




Huge thanks to all who entered and additional thanks for helping me wrap this up. Once again, if you have entered one of the trees showcased above, I want you to vote for 2 OTHER trees in the comments. I will wait until Sunday Feb 26 for votes to come in, and announce the winner of 500mL of freakishly good tree juice on Monday, Feb 27.

Yer Pal,
R A N T W I C K

PS - If you check the comments you'll see that I already got the voting started!

PPS - If you didn't enter a tree and want to vote anyway, knock yourself out. I will only use your vote in the event of a tie, but hey, you never know!

I like the map on Picasa that shows everyone's location. But I where the heck is wbrown?

RANTWICK said...

Vegas - I never got a location from wbrn... so I stuck the tree in the middle of the sea

RANTWICK said...

Johnny - I included my tree, but I'm not allowed to win, so a vote for me is a wasted one... no problem.

I wrote down a few names when I first got the email. JAT and Darin pics are my favorites. Really an excercise in futility to narrow down this field. Thanks.

RCT - Agreed... there are lots of beauties in this year's crop... yours among them!
