Here comes the last day of the TOC.

Please get your responses in by Monday. I will be calculating the final results and having the medal ceremony on Tuesday morning. Also, if you haven't already done so, please vote for the winner of this year's Paucle Memorial Award for Outstanding Writing.

Good luck.
