Main Event Contest: And the Winner Is…..

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

About a month ago we challenged you guys to design the next event in TSTO with our Main Event Contest and WOW did you guys respond!  We were COMPLETELY blown away by your submissions!  We then read each and every one of your entries over and over, trying hard to narrow it down to the finalists.  You guys had such AMAZING ideas and it was nearly impossible to narrow it down, but we finally picked 10 finalists.  Then we left it up to you guys, the AMAZING Addicts Community to vote for your favorite and pick the winner.

Well the votes have been cast and the totals are it…and all we can say is you guys had as hard of a time picking a winner as we did picking the finalists!  It was an insanely close battle!

So enough stalling from me…let’s get to the winners!!
