Day 7 Richard Solo Backup Battery Winners

This contest received about 80 entries, but some of them did not include a number, which sort of makes it hard to win. Seems like a few of you just increased the odds for the others! 😉

Anyways, the idea was for me to pick a number between 1-1000, and the people who guessed the closest or got the number would win. In the event of more than two people guessing the same number, I’d put those into a hat and draw two for the win.

Here is the number I picked on Sunday when I originally wrote the Day 7 contest:


Three people picked 333 spot on (go buy a lottery ticket!), so I put their names into a hat. The two names that emerged were:


So congrats to you both! Thanks to everyone who entered!

PS – Day 1 winners: the invisibleSHIELDS arrived. I will be shipping them out shortly!
