The polls are now closed. Thank you for playing.
It was a close contest with fans of Finalist C ensuring an early and seemingly insurmountable lead, but weekend readers turned out in significant numbers to make their marks for A and E. I was going to say “turned out in droves” but I have no idea how many it requires to officially count as a drove. Probably more than a Brazilian.
Anyway, the final tally (as at 12h00 CAT) was as follows:
A Adventurous: 18
B Double Act: 4
C Stilettos: 20
D Shoe-in Jones: 2
E Hate mail again: 19
So let’s hear it for the official winner of the Win a Date With Kyknoord competition: Finalist C Stilettos, who happens to be none other than [drumroll] South Africa’s premier lady blogger, Peas on Toast. Am I the only one who thinks this is a bit like the bad old days when Transvaal used to thump Western Province on the rugby field.
Even though she’s an upcountry lass, sweet Peas still has the option of claiming the prize and leaving the actual date open-ended until such time as she finds herself in the Fairest Cape. Anyone willing to offer travel sponsorship should contact probably Peas directly, because I would spend the money on – well – stuff.
