And the winner is…

  • Apr. 20, 2009 8:00 p.m.

Marla Abbott of Queen Charlotte wins our Daffodil Contest this year, with a grand total of 252 blooms as of noon Monday. That’s a far cry from other years, when the winning count has gone over 1,000, but it has been a cool spring, not conducive to blooms. That’s why we let Penny Richardson of Tlell enter her 278 buds, when she called last week! The winner of our random draw is Evelyn Robinson of Port Clements. Both winners receive two year subscriptions to the Observer. Thanks to all for entering. Perhaps we’ll have more in bloom in 2010?252 Marla Abbott, QC218 Sandra Price, QC103 Joy Lafortune, QC89 Eleanor Bowman, Maude Island89 Erwin Roth, QC86 Gord Horner, QC Clinic, QC47 Jennifer Davies, Tlell25 Garth, Cara, Stefanie and Kristin Johnson, Port Clements18 Rosie Quigley, Port17 Lorna Berekoff, Skidegate16 David Wright, Lawn Point15 Theresa Tomalin, QC 11 Dennis Legare, Masset11 Cacilia Honsich, Tlell8 Evelyn Robinson, Port Clements7 Faye Laidlaw, QC7 Betty Richardson, Skidegate5 Sandi Morgan, QC5 Verna Hunter, Sandspit5 Kimiko von Boetticher, Masset5 Susan Musgrave, Tow Hill Road5 Melanie Woode, Masset4 Kay Watson, Skidegate2 Colleen Beachy, Port2 George Picken, Masset2 Gerry MacIntyre, Skidegate1 Calvin Crosby, Skidegate½ Lynne Humphries, Masset0 Elin and Chris, Tow Hill (despite the fact they have 100 bulbs in the ground)278 buds Penny, Richardson Tlell
