Today we are proud to announce the winner(s) of the Sportsman Channel ~ Blog writing contest. Since everyone hates a Board of Directors speech before a big award show, I’ll just tuck my napkin of notes back in my pocket and get to the good stuff. Drum Roll please………
The Winner of the $200.00 dollar Cabelas gift card is….
Mark Dillow of the blog No Clear Line.
His winning entry can be read here “Frozen In Time”
Notes from the Sportsman Channel judges: “a winter travel story filled with memories. Also, it was penned very well to make us feel like we were there with him, traveling to his home and hunting with his dad”
Now, as a bonus, The Sportsman Channel decided to elect two additional winners as well. Both winners will be receiving something from The Sportmans Channel in the mail and they will have to tell us what they got when it arrives ~ We do love a good surprise.
Congratulations goes out to 2nd place winner Ken Hall from the blog The View from Fish in a Barrel Pond and his winning blog entry titled “On Thin Ice” Notes from The Sportsman Channel on his entry : for “Most Creative Post” to “On Thin Ice” by Quill Gordon. The stark comparison between fantasy and reality was really neat and spiced up the article, plus, it was also written very well.
And lastly, Congratulations goes out to honorable mention winner Owl Jones of the blog Flyfishing the Southern Blue Ridge and his blog entry titled “Winter Scouting on “Murphy’s Mountain” ” Notes from the Sportsman Channel on his entry: Lastly, I want to acknowledge “Winter Scouting on ‘Murphy’s Mountain’” by Owl Jones. This was a crazy piece I loved because I can see any couple in this situation. I can see myself acting like his lovely bride did and I can see my husband trying to “trick” me into doing something he loves on a pretense of something else. (It has been done in the past)
And a special note from The Sportsman Channel:
