To win, individuals had to survive a multi-step process. First, they had to participate. "You've got to be in it to win it," as they say. Next, they had to answer all five questions correctly. Finally, those who answered all five questions correctly were entered into a drawing. Five individuals emerged from this random process.
And the winners are...
1. Lee Gee
2. Ron Griffith
3. Ben Anderson
4. D Palmer
5. Les Jackson
Congratulations to our five winners!
