There were a few ties for second and third place this year, so a lot of people received awards not listed above. The full list of winners, including second and third places, will be available in the Muskies Awards section
Usually I send PMs to all award winners to present them with special banners created in recognition of their achievements. This year, I plan to place those banners in the full list of winners so they can be more easily found later. The banners for past muskies will be available in that fashion as well. I'm still working out a couple of details on that, but expect an announcement about that during the next week or so.
Congratulations to all winners!
If you did not win, you have my condolences. Don't fret, though. There's always next year's Muskies! Thank you to everyone who has contributed to Fringes of Algo over the past 20 years!
