For winning the 2015 Australian Open Women's Suicide Pool! A performance well done in a pool riddled with sorrow and carnage!

Your medals have been awarded!

Thanks Dry, and congrats to the other medalists, including first-timer GlennHarman.

Many props for all the work that Dry and Shtexas have done this fortnight!

I'd like to thank the Academy for this award. And I'd especially like to thank the little people: my high school drama teacher who always told me he saw such potential in my performance as "Third Soldier" in the senior play; my orthodontist; and, my plastic surgeon who initially said it couldn't be done. I'd also like to congratulate the other nominees, since getting nominated is really winning. (note to self: say that last sentence warmly, as if you really meant it, while staring sincerely into the eyes of the LOSERS). And I'd like to close by saying, You like me, You REALLY like me! (flash the pearly whites while gazing into the camera with a single tear running down one cheek.....then walk majestically off stage clutching the statuette with both hands.)

Woops.....I posted the wrong acceptance speech...that one is waiting for another special occasion.

Anyway, thanks for the congrats. It is great fun finally to win one of these things. But (and I really mean this), I have always had such fun competing in the SP's that winning was not something I particularly had my sights set on. Sometimes I have been places where participating was not possible, but when that is not the case, I intend to do these as long as I can. It really makes watching the Slams more fun.....and I even enjoy watching the SP's after I have been eliminated.

Many thanks to the forum staff. You do a wonderful job with this web site. And congrats to the other winners as well.

Love to all!!! Glenn

Congrats are in order for sure! Nice job to all. :cool:

I offer a sincere thank you to the organisers, especially the hijinx I put them through trying to get my picks in while I was travelling for work...
