  1. Just out of curiosity, I used my browser’s “FIND” feature to see how many entries Alicia and Crash entered during the contest. Check this out…

    Crash went with a high-volume approach entering the contest a staggering 314 times. Whereas Alicia entered… brace yourself folks… 1 very lucky time!!!

    I was somewhere in between with only 52 entries and obviously didn’t take the prize with my middle of the road approach.

    At any rate congrats to the winners.

  2. @Justanotherblogger just amused me at the time I made that decision, seemed like fun, nothing more than momentary whimsy 🙂

  3. Shh. Don’t give Hyatt any ideas. I’d argue value under $600 (no matter than the points can potentially be used to secure lodging priced at over $600) and thus no 1099 should be generated.

  4. It is nice that such drawings are afforded to us, your loyal fans ! Congrats to the victors ! Looking forward to more ops !
