I am not embarrassed to say that I have been strutting around town bragging about my performance in the Crosscut event at the 2010 Hand Tool Olympics, held at the WIA conference a couple weeks ago. As evidence of my skills, I was awarded this fine saw as a trophy.
Imagine my shock, the depth of my dismay and grief to discover that prizes were awarded to some participants (me!) based on random chance! Apparently the powers that be gave 2 prizes, one to the highest performer and one raffled off to a participant in each event.
The silver lining is that most folks didn't know what I was talking about in the first place, so they literally couldn't care less. So really, there's no need to chase down all those announcement cards I mailed out, is there?
