September 2010 TD winners (Happy Birthday RonP - R.I.P.)

    Since the September TD was dedicated to Ron's love of Yoshida's, it would only be fitting to announce the winner of the TD on his birthday (10/3).

    After tallying up the votes, we have a member that has run the table on the Judge's Vote:

    Squirrel = winner of both the Judge's vote and the voting poll!! She ran the table on the Judge's vote, receiving the maximum amount of points from each judge = 90 overall.


    Since we cannot have the same winner for both categories, the runner-up to the voting poll will be crowned the winner.

    Meateater = voting poll winner of the Sept. 2010 TD!


    Thanks to everyone for taking the time to enter, and vote, for this special TD. Warm birthday wishes are sent to RonP on this special day.

    Holy cow. I got a perfect score from the judges? That just made my day. And to everyone who voted for my entry, thanks sooooo much! I had a blast rushing around on the last day, and then it rained, and I busted my butt, and trying to take pictures and making my cats cry, whew, it was an eventful day. It was very important to me to do this for Ron. Rest in peace buddy and happy birthday! I will post my Q-view and some recipes later today.

    Hey, those are the two I voted for!

    Just kidding. The thing would only let me vote once!

    Everybody's looked great!

    I think I saw a smile peeking out from behind a cloud this morning. Ron must be very pleased.

    Hope to see many posts, with instructions for us jealous viewers.

    Thanks All,

    My only regret in this contest is that I don't get to do anything other than look at them.  I agree that presentation is important, but to me taste is paramont.

    Do the judges get to taste?

    Carol held a memorial service for Ron yesterday and today was his birthday. I talked to her Friday and she was going to log in to check out the entries. She has been overwhelmed by the thoughts and prayers and the sheer number of people that Ron touched in some way. Now comes the hard part. A big ATABOY to all of you.
