Could the winners please send me a message with how they would like their name on the plaque?

Also please send me your ship to address.

Once I have all of the information I will get the plaques ordered

A big thanks to Beth. I am very computer illiterate, so I had to rely on her a lot. Thanks to Tracey (BossDog) for putting the whole thing on


Thank you to everyone involved especially Tracy, Beth, and Brad for putting this together again. Thank you for voting for my knife and congratulations to the other winners.
