Arrow Re: USA West Coast Poll - Trip Report Challenge First Quarter 2011 - We Need your vot

Please do not post in this thread to help assure compliance with this rule:

Quote:
B. No rallying or mobilizing other members to second a nomination or vote for a finalist whatsoever is allowed either internally on Spearboard or externally. Any evidence of this may result in disqualification.
But, I may bump the voting poll threads to the top of "New Posts" periodically to remind members to cast their votes.

If you want to make a comment or ask a question that does not promote voting for your favorite finalist, please do it here in this thread at this link: http://spearboard.com/showthread.php?t=130919
