And so, the time has come for my reign to end and it is only fitting that I hold a contest to choose my successor. I have had much fun playing these games with you all over the past few years, and I will still be around (though, as I've said earlier, not as much) to play more games!

To that end, once all the votes have been tallied for the Summer Contest (COME ON PEOPLE - VOTE ALREADY!!!) you will have one final contest - and one final prize -- the prize, well the grandest prize of all time - the Czardom, of course Smile

SO - GO VOTE for the best, most creative, summer photo, then come back here in a couple weeks to play in the final game.

Your Czarina,
Joanna

Many thanks to Joanna for being Czarina for so long. Clap

You have done a great job and will be greatly missed by everyone who enters the contests. Smile

It,s nice to know that you are not going alltogether and will still be around to make sure i don,t win anything. Big Grin

Is this like Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory?

Charlie won contest - Got Chocolate Factory.
Someone on card talk wins contest - Gets New Job with all of its benefits! LOL!

Seriously, Joanna, thanks for everything that you do for us here on Card Talk and outside of Card Talk as well. Looking forward to seeing you and the crew at Philly.

Hold on a sec... if you hang up your Czarina shoes.... who will send out my Oompa Loompa prize??? Frown

But also seriously, from the bottom of my heart, you are the best.... those shoe's which are being hung will will be way too big for ANYONE to fill!!! The charm, the wit... the humour, the name calling... what will we do once you are no longer our czar?

Alas.... we will miss you!!! A legend has been born!!

Weeell - after I'm done shipping out the remaining Loompas and the Summer Contest, the prize bin will be pretty empty - I will dutifully send the remaining prizes to the newest Czar (unless they are international, then I'll ship for them) and of course, continue to harass, name call and otherwise bother RupT as a civilian Smile


Of course, I'm kidding - RupT and I are nothing but the best of friends - lord knows, someone on this board might have actually thought I enjoyed torturing people Razz

No it doesn't, OWM's gonna go off and get her degree, I think she's entitled to a bit of a rest after all her hard work!

Thanks for all you've done for the Board and best of luck with the studying in the future! Big Grin

My intent XsabX:
It stinks, because she did a great job and now she is moving on. So, I was only stating that I was upset(For a moment)that her time as Czar was up. I knew she was going to college, and I am excited for her.

Sometimes a statement is just a statement of feeling not fact.
"That stinks" was my first reaction when I read that OWM said that she was not going to be the contest czar and I wrote it down. There was no hostile intent behind it. I think OWM is great, super-nice, a good person.

It was really nice of you to take this on all this time and you've done a terrific job.
Add to that the humor and class you bring to the board - and I'd say we've all benefited by your being here in one way or another - Czar or not. Thanks for your time and efforts.

Maybe she could remain the power behind the new Czar / Czarina's throne ?
