GPSD’08 Results are in!

Another year is gone, and another gPumpkin contest has come to a close. Many a beer and chocolate was consumed, and overall it was a great break from our normal routine. Congratulations to Grant and Wes, whose pumpkin “The Horror of Corporate Conformity” took first place. Between Grant and Wes, one of them have been on the winning team each year. Conspiracy? Probably.

Highlights this year included:

  • A landslide victory by the “Horror of Corporate Conformity”, which sat at around triple the votes of the second place pumpkin
  • Carving with steak knives instead of the traditional tools, which have been lost since last year
  • The very first “dropped” pumpkin. It didn’t break, but it took a good dive from the table.
  • Phantom votes for a non-existent pumpkin, which showed up in the voting app. It turned out to be an old testing file

Overall it was great fun. We leave you with a shot of all the pumpkins together. See you all next year!
