Greetings fellow mtbrs,

Whether you spell it Grimey or Grimy the 2007 awards are here. Anyway, for those new to mtbr or just unfamiliar; this annual event is the mountain biking subculture equivalent of prom. So let's have fun!

As the appointed bean counter, I've added the categories that were deleted two years ago and kept those from last year. Who am I to decide what you want to vote on, anyway? Oh and I brought back the comments field.

-----------------

Instructions:

Copy the text below and paste in an email addressed to [email protected]. fyi - those are underscores, not spaces. Fill in the blanks and send it. (Do not reply with votes to this thread). If you prefer not to let me see your email (not that I've plans for email addys I receive), copy the text and Private Message (PM) athalliah here on mtbr.com. Only one ballot per registered mtbr.com member, registered on or before December 31, 2007.

Rock on Grimy!

I hope I win category 20!

but I'm going to spam the forum with my best photo spreads of my hucks in hope for a win in cats 6 and 12

PS; thanks ahead of time for doing this athalliah.

Vote people please... Please vote. Its fun and you get that deep feeling you really do count in the world, unlike the election for the US president coming soon.

I never win any categories...not even best lurker. I'm not quite an old timer (I don't think, anyway), but I've been around longer than most.

Ah, who am I kidding? Maybe AllKnowing is actually my sock puppet and I'll really win category 20 (okay, so maybe not...but a man can dream, can't he?).

Ah, the Grimy Awards

These are always great. I haven't been around here much in a while so I wouldn't be able to realisticly vote. But I sure can't wait to see the final results!:thumbsup:

You can still vote; this isn't like you're electing a government official where ignorance could have grievous repercussions. :)
