Beauty contests

Congratulations (I think) to Baz Carter, corkscrew commenter on this blog a few posts back, and proprietor of his own, somewhat more riveting site, for being named Outdoors Hunk, ’09 in a hotly contest vote sponsored by Darren.

Congrats likewise to Rose Cartwright, co-proprietor of the web’s best lightweight backpacking shop, who won as Outdoors Hero.

Is there a prize? A statuette in the form of a stove, perhaps? A large chunk of Lucite of the kind the Cartwrights are getting used to? Or must the glory suffice?

And, Darren, Darren, how come no transatlantic contestants? For next year, I nominate American Hunks Daryl May and Lou LaBorwit.

Mark,
there was a chance for folks to nominate who was on each list. So not my fault if there were no Americans on the list.
