    Hey all, it's a wee bit past the original Feb 1st due date, but I'll get started on the giveaways TODAY since Pamela is in grant-deadline-ness at the moment.

    So, I'll get a random # generator going (or borrow Pamela's gaming dice) on these comments that have already been left and checking eligibility, then announce the winners (at least the first round of those) later tonight.

    Good luck and cheers!

    Alright....

    I listed all the people who commented here in order of time, assigned a number, and threw it into a random sequence generator.

    Good news: Enough of you wanted different stuff that it seems like you will all get your first choice (as long as you qualify according to our stats. If you didn't check your PMs.)
    Not so good news: There was a mistake in the t-shirt size/count. We have 1 XL JWST shirt and 6 L JWST shirts. So, that may change your preference and if so, let me know.

    Some of you commented on stuff discussed in the thread but you know what? I'll count that as an entry. However, I will give first priority in choosing to those who put stuff down, and then anyone who commented but didn't put a preference still gets a chance to decide if they want something in the order listed below.

    Here be the winners!

    ToSeek, senior - JWST shirt! XL or L? (I think we'll give it one more round and then you can have extra after that?)
    Solfe, senior - NASA meatball pin and compass
    Moose, senior - your choice!
    Shigeru, 12,667 images classified - JWST shirt! You did ask for XL, but I think ToSeek gets first dibs on that. Still want if only L left?
    swampyankee, senior - You asked for "anything I can hang on the wall of a middle school classroom." How about one of the infrared posters?
    tranan, 7030 images classified - you asked for anything we want to send you. With well over 1000+ classifications, you pretty much get your pick. Let me know!
    gillianren, senior - Solar system Jr. trading cards! Those are so cute.
    HenrikOlsen, senior - your choice!
    kmasterdo, 5637 image classifications - Space data book! (That looked to be your first choice, is that correct?)
    dwardio, 208 image classifications - ESO Lanyard, USNO Observatory Sticker, Swinburne Keychain
    veegee, 135 image classifications - your choice from the 100+ category!
    slang, senior - your choice!
    trebuchet, senior - unfortunately we don't have CQX shirts to give away, but I can send you a JWST one if you'd like
    coolrocketdude, 3433 image classifications - ALMA Book!
    cougar, senior - the St. Louis Astronomical Society pin and two other pick 3's of your choice! Sounds like you want pins...
    neowatcher - JWST shirt! (again, so sorry, is L okay?)
    swift, senior - your choice!
    noclevername, senior - your choice!
    R.A.F., senior, the only by title :-) - your choice!
    mikeezfosheezy - you said you wanted a tote! Which one, the ASP or UNAWE?

    Congrats, everyone. If you've won, you need to PM or email me your contact info and sort any preferences so I can physically get things to you. My email address is noisyastronomer@gmail.com. P.O. Boxes and office addresses are fine. Let me know if you have any questions.

    Thanks! I'll get this sorted and then do a round 2...

    Can I get an autographed pic of you and Pamela too? I'm a huge fan of astronomy cast and the space hang out pod casts I listen to every episode

    I think I'll pass.
    If there is someone else out there doing actual image work on this site, then I would feel better with them getting it if I can't wear it. Besides, there's probably a better chance that there is someone younger than me (therefore smaller in stature) that can fit in it.

    I'd prefer the XL but could live with a L if someone else absolutely has to have the larger size.
    Everything I need to know I learned through Googling.

    I figured you meant the UNAWE tote b/c it's pretty awesome, but wanted to check!

    I know Pamela has silver sharpies around just for that reason. I just use them to doodle. I'll see what I can come up with!

    The eagles have landed! That is, the super fantastic NASA pins just arrived in the mail! And the 75th Anniversary St. Louis Astronomical Society pin! That's going right on the lapel! Thanks Nicole and Pamela, et al!

    My pin (and compass) arrived too. I put it on my son's NASA jacket. He is very happy since it matches perfectly.

    Thanks again!

    Hooray! Glad to hear things are arriving. Working on customs forms for international packages and one more domestic I got address for... Phew. I haven't done a mailing project since I was in high school!

    Got mine Tuesday, opened it yesterday.
    It's much nicer than I thought. The tones in the picture didn't do it justice.

    Thank you. Much appreciated.
