The finalization week is over, and the results are in! Congratulations to all of our incredible participants -- wow, what a great time! And a special thanks go out to our team captains, who did a fantastic job guiding their teams. Only one thing remains: the awarding of the "subjective" prizes. Our crack team of judges (two of them) will be nominating projects to win these prizes, so get ready to vote in the Balderdash group on Ravelry!

Hands Up, Utensils Down!
That's it for the spinning week - we hope everyone had a great time! This week, our participants and captains should be finishing up their measurements and getting them into the system. Please head on over to the Yardage FAQ thread for answers (maybe) or to ask your questions. Also, please use balderdash2019 as a tag for your project (or #theBalderdash2019, for those of you on hashtag-using social media) -- if you're on a team, check your team threads for team tags.

Judges! Judges?
We've got some subjective prizes that will need some kind of judging to figure out who won -- prizes like "Best True Story" and "Best Tall Tale", which are awarded to projects with great stories. Right now the options on the table are: having a judges' panel do all the work of selecting the winners, having a judges' panel provide nominations for projects for which all participants will then vote, or having participants nominate and vote. We could use your help on figuring out which one you want -- please head on over to the voting thread and cast your vote for which selection process you prefer!

We all hope you had an awesome Midwinter (or Midsummer, for you folks in the Southern Hemisphere) Holiday Season, whatever your creed or celebration! Now take some time to relax -- but not too much, because there's less than a week to go before the Balderdash!

You may have noticed a new motto for the contest, courtesy of our own Yakityak: Spin Or Die Lying - thanks Yakityak! Also, images of the snazzy coaster design are available on the prizes page!

The site is up!
While we're getting the last of the little things changed (mostly colors and graphics), please enjoy the development version of the site. You can register right now, though - when the site goes "non-dev", your account won't be affected. Join us!
