The BCS Winter Challenge champions

With ninety four entrants and more than nine hundred and fifty photos, the BCS Winter Photo Challenge was an amazing success.  I truly enjoyed every single set of pictures.  Thanks so much to everyone who entered.  In my mind, you're all champions.

That said, some entries were more memorable than others.  It was impossible to choose just one winner, so I decided to follow the NAN format and name a Champion, Reserve Champion and Remaining Top Ten.  The two top placings will both receive a nameplate halter.

Without further ado, here are the winners:

Champion: Ulrike Appelt
Reserve Champion: Cendre O'Caroll
Remaining Top Ten (in no particular order): Tammi Palmarchuk,
Claudia Rallis
Congratulations to all the winners and thanks again to everyone who entered!
