And the winners are….. (iPads for Christmas contest)

Congratulations to the following winners of our iPads for Christmas contest. It was a hard choice, but I ended up with these winners:

  • CC-597066
  • DataChomp
  • Scott Murray-240410
  • richardn-1128243
  • Michael Lysons
  • chris.cantley
  • Nick Van Dyk
  • barb.wendling
  • hghumphrey
  • MdApache

I had over a 100 entries to go through, and it  took some time, and a few passes to get down to about 20, then 14, then pick the last 10. These were interesting entries, and while it was close, these seemed to stand out in my mind.

I’ll be contacting the winners today, and then letting Red Gate know as well and we’ll get those iPad shipments moving.

Thanks to everyone that entered, and happy holidays to you all.

I think only winners from USA and UK are picked so that ipad can be shipped without huge shipping and customs taxes.
