DABWAHA Update: Get to Filling Out Your Brackets

What could be better or worse than 666? 999 – the total number of entries allowed by the tournament software. And we’re getting close to that number, much to our surprise and delight!

So heads up: bracket pick time ends tonight at 8pm EST – OR when we hit 999 entries, whichever comes first! As of 12:30 pm EST we had over 780 entries, so, in the words of philosopher and sage Larry the Cable Guy, “Arrange the completion of your tasks post haste!”

If you want to check and see if your entry is showing up, here is the place to do it. (Use Ctrl/Command + F to search and find your name). Remember to only enter once for fairness to everyone. If you have entered more than one time and would be willing to delete an entry, please email me jane at dearauthor dot com.

Voting will begin tonight – YES TONIGHT – at midnight EST at the DABWAHA Blog, and there will be sets of multiple polls running for twelve hours so as to make all the time zones happy. We’re sluts for your time zones like that.

Any questions – let’s hear ’em.

    I’m thinking that tiebreaker won’t be quite so effective this year…

    Wow, looks like Angels Blood is the overwhelming favorite.

    I’m thinking my einey, meeney, miney, moe didn’t work so well this year.

    At least I’ve managed to resist tinkering with my picks. Second guessing myself wouldn’t help, right?

    Drat, I procrastinated and missed my chance to enter the tournament. Oh well, I’ll just cheer from the bleachers this year!

    @Janine: Yarg! Me too! Consequences of being on a Caribbean vacation during promo time and then being firewalled at work! Seeing the results is just as much fun!

    @SandyW: I figured I would pick just as badly the second time if I were to redo it, so I resisited changing mine as well.
