Well, I have to thank all of you for pouring your heart and effort in to what turned out to be probably the best article contest yet. So many great and fun stories came from this, and that is what it is all about!

And now for our winner... well, I'll simply paste the message as it was sent to me by Rose and Tony Ward, our guest judge(s)...

Okay, we have read over all
the articles. They were all fantastic to read, but our favorite would
have to be "The Best Day Ever" by echidna64. We thought it perfectly
captured the essence of summer, and managed to work in a heartfelt story
as well.


Our runner-up would have to be "In the Summer Time" by vkimo. We found it very humorous and loved all the random imagery!


There you have it!

A big congrats to echidna for the win, his first here at RD!

Right on Chids! I was rooting for your piece. Thanks also to Rose and Tony for runner up nod. I'll have to read echidna's article again, seeing as I can really identify with it now

Aw thank you so much guys! It's great to be part of such an awesome community where we can discuss things like Darkwing Duck fanny packs and memories from our childhood all in one place!

I was definitely sweating it during the last week of the contest, it felt like I was reliving that day at the kid's race.

Thank you for sharing your summer memories with all of us! This was a lot of fun!

I think I may have finally found an author to act as judge for this year's Suddenly Summer contest. Yes, I realize Summer is on the downside now but, finding authors willing to help is difficult. And it really needs to be an author with published works - somebody with authority and respect for the subject matter. So, keep an eye peeled for the details on the contest, coming soon I think.

NOTE: This year's contest will parallel the latest Goodie Pack in theme... Retro Gaming.
