Thank you to all the participants! So we don't disclude anyone, we won't be announcing how everyone did. We don't have all the names and place winnings because most of the winners collected their targets and ribbons at the ceremony.

Again, because of ALL the amazing contributions and assistance we experienced, this event was AMAZING!
