The time has come to hand out the victors' laurels, that is, blog buttons!
You may feel free to take one of the following (please remember to save the button to your own server!):
1. The Prize for the Maillot Jaune (Yellow Jersey)
If you completed your goal, please take this button for your blog:
2. The Prix de la Combativité (Prize for Combativeness)
Okay, so you didn't make your goal. It happens. But did you give it your all? Did you try your best? Then please take this button:
I realize that when I announced the Tour de Fleece, I said there would only be a button for those who actually finished and achieved their goal. But while watching the Tour, I thought about that red dossard (the thing with the numbers that the riders wear on their backs) that's handed out at the end of each stage for the rider who was the most combattive each day. And I thought it would be a good idea to offer it up to any of you who tried your level best but discovered that life got in the way, or that the goal you set was a bit more than you could handle. You didn't give up? You get a button, too.
Thanks to all who participated in the Tour, and to those who donated prizes -- we'll be drawing for those sometime this weekend, and I'll contact the winners via email to get a snail mail address. After that, I'll post the list of winners here.
Thanks, too, to everyone who bought Tour de Fleece swag or who made a Paypal donation for the DAWF. You have until July 31st to do either of the above, and at the beginning of August I'll draw a name from everyone who bought or donated for the 100g of Fleece Artist Roving.
