The Crocusword contest closed earlier today, the last day of Crocus 2010, and its now time to announce the winners!
Thank you all for your terrific enthusiasm and valuable support! And for your kind words in your emails. THANK YOU!
Without much ado -
The winner of Crocusword 2010 is The Davis Family from Naperville, Illinois, USA! Yoo-hoo...Congratulations!!!
The consolation prize winner is Shashank Swamynathan, Bangalore, India! Congrats Shashank!
The contest was meant to titillate guests and readers, young and old, during the festive mood of Crocus. And to celebrate books and reading in a special way. I think it did. Both! But here is something that quantifies its success - below are all those who sent in all (both words and the final message) correct answers, in the order they were received. We truly appreciate your effort and participation! That is why we thought we should gather you all here, under the tree, as well:)
(Please let me know if there is a correction in your name. Apologies if I have missed out or misspelt anyone!)
