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!)

Asha Sivakumar
Chandra Iyer (& her family)
Cantaloupe's Amma
Katherine Aitken
Radha Thiagarajan

Hi, I am Aruna Davis, from The Davis Family. It was a lot of fun being a part of CROCUS 2010. My Kids and I got a lot of reading and craft done this past week and so a big shout-out to all the organizers. The CROCUSWORD was truly the kind of competition for wordjunkies like us. Enjoyed it throuughly with the family!
A special thanks to our dear friend Tharini for pointing us to such a wonderful literary event. I think we have read over 20 of the books listed on Saffron Tree within the past week and I am eager to keep reading more. I am not able to tell yet, if I like the books or the reviews more :-)
Anyways hats-off to all of you for such a great resource and we wish Saffron Tree and Crocus the very best!
