HUGE Congratulations to "old hands" SyxPak, Lumenari and DBCowboy, to our BRAND NEW ATS WRITERS EmmanuelGoldstein & Onlyyouknow and to JAGStorm for filling up both sides of our podiums!

As always, I have to say a heartfelt THANK YOU! to every single one of YOU who take the trouble to write, read, comment and vote in these contests. It could not happen without you.

To DontTreadOnMe and the ATS staff/mods... Keep Greasing Those Cogs! You do a wonderful job behind the scenes, keeping the whole thing moving along and everyone (including me) on track!


On a personal note;
This was my very last ATS short story contest as organiser/facilitator.
I have very much enjoyed seeing our new writing talent taking root, then growing and blossoming within these hallowed pages.
The encouragement, goodwill and support that you all give freely to the newer writers is what it's all about for me.
Long may that continue.

I'll see you on the boards!

Thanks for putting in the time and effort Gordi. I really hope somebody steps in to fill the position because this is just too much fun for some of us and it would be missed.
Congrats to all the winners!

There were many fantastic stories and I enjoyed them all. I never thought I would win, I am kind of speechless at the moment.
Thank you all very much.

Thank you Gordi The Drummer, DontTreadOnMe, and AugustusMasonicus.

Thank you readers and voters and writers!

Congratulations to our two newest writers... awesome entries.

And to all who took the time to submit a short story this time... there is a lot of great talent out there.

Let's hope someone will attempt to fill Gordi's shoes although that may be a tall order...

And as always TY DTOM and the other Mods for doing the dirty work.

Thank you everyone & Gordi! It was a neat contest. I enjoyed reading the very different responses to the topic.
It just shows how something as simple sounding as winning the lottery, can be interpreted so many different ways.

Contest Update....



This is not the end of the contests.
In case anyone missed it, I will run the threads for the future contests, with help of fellow mods to count votes and offer support.
You'll see more details soon.
And hopefully the contests will run as smoothly as Gordi's efforts.

I hope to have the next contest soon, possibly early December, late November.



P.S. to all the writers....I will award prizes tomorrow.
