Zoo-schmoo - you still had to grab the shot and so something with it. Love it, and congrats on besting yourself.

Congratulations everyone! I am really excited about my PB (although it was 50/50 that I would get one, since I've only entered once before! Hehe). Still, I was really hoping for a 5.8 and ended up with 5.82. YAY!

Still keeping my fingers crossed that I'll be able to crack a 7 by year end.


You're way ahead of the norm. Took me a couple of years to get my first ribbon :-)


It took me 9 years and 363 days from my first entry to first ribbon. I did get my first personal best on my first entry, so there was that. : )

Well done hippie it was only a matter of time before you ribboned :-)

Another new Personal Best (as well as another world's tiniest violin).... I dont think it should've scored as highly as it did, but I think the voters were extra nice in this challenge.. :)
