In a highly scientific random drawing, I added the names of all the poets that contributed beer haiku since June 1, 2006 to a hat and allowed my two-year-old son to pull one out.
The winner is B1-66er the author and low-res photographer over at b1-66er’s archipelago. He also happens to be one of the masterminds behind Choka On It and the reigning English haiku slugfest champion of the world. (That was a blast!)
Congratulations B1-66er! You have won a free beer from the Captain or a mutually agreed upon substitute. I will be contacting you by email to make arrangements.
My deepest thanks and admiration to everyone that contributed Haiku to the contest. If I haven’t published yours already, I will be doing so over the next week or two. Thank you so much for making this contest successful.
PS: Did people like this contest? Do you want to see more contests? I came up with the idea at the last minute but I could have more contests and drawings if you are interested. Perhaps the next one could be a popularity contest and I could set up some kind of polling so that you, the readers, can vote. Let me know your thoughts in the comments section.
