Josh has let me know that the order is almost ready to submit to the calendar people. Once he's done that he'll let us all know how much and how to order.

I loved all the pictures this year. You all really outdid yourselves. It was so hard to pick only three.

Can anyone explain the thinking behind why we vote for three instead of each member only voting for one?
Perhaps, partly because a good percentage of the votes come from people who have a tortoise in the competition.
Just voting for yourself (as most would) wouldn't be very exciting and it's the second and third votes that select the winners.
Also with only a third of the total number of votes cast, the chances of ties is greatly increased.
Just my thoughts.
