    Congratulations to our 2011 Tortoise Calendar Contest Winners! cdmay received the most votes this year and won a $50 gift certificate to TORTOISESUPPLY.COM! Thanks to TortoiseSupply.com for sponsoring this year's contest! We had many many outstanding submissions this year; thank you to ALL who participated. A collage of all the submissions will be included in the calendar.
    I've PMed all the winners and asked them to email me their original photo so I can start working on the calendar. Once I receive all the photos and have the calendar design uploaded to Costco, I will put up the calendar order form. This should all take place within the next week, so keep checking back!

    Thanks again to everyone for making this year's contest a HUGE success!

    It is rare that I go on the front page, I receive the notifications of all the new threads by emails. my computer is super slow and freeze a lot since a while, so sometimes when I click on delete, it does not delete the Email, I guess by clicking twice on delete I must have deleted the new email with the new thread by mistake. Ahhhh Computerssss....

    Very cool pictures. I wish there was a desert tortoise though. None of my pix were very good so I didn't enter. I love the chocolate box of torts.[hr]
    I only counted 11 pictures. Is there a suprise picture that we have to buy the calender to see? Actually 13 months would be nice to get a jump start on 2012 :)

    Wonderful winners. I can't wait to order my calendar. I have to admit, though, that I am surprised that watermelon- face Bob did not get chosen this year! :(

    The competition has gotten steep in the last year! So many exceptional entries on this one...:cool:

    That's not true Carl, you won our respect a long time ago! :p :D I knew Carl was going to win the moment he posted that picture. I even pm'd him and told him. ;) Congratulations Carl, what are you going to spend your $50.00 gift certificate on?
