A Few Glitches and Grand Prizes No. 1 and 2

We had a few glitches with the prizes and for that I apologize. Some people were having problems downloading the Pickleberrypop zip files and unzipping them. Since most people were able to download and unzip them without issue, I believe the problem was just too many people trying to download at the same time. If you had problems, try again later.

Also, the NDISB coupon code was set with a limit of 200. In my glorious thought process, I was thinking 200 teams = 200 coupons.... However, anyone with a first grade math class under her belt knows that 200 x 2 = 400. So I've upped the coupon's number of uses accordingly. It should be working just fine again.

We had 198 teams register. Of those, 181 were eligible for the Grand Prize drawing. As of Monday morning, all but five of the eligible teams completed their requirements to move on. So what are the remaining 176 teams playing for? I'll profile the first two prizes in this post and will follow up with more every few days.

Prize No. 1 comes to us from Corel. They are generously donating two copies of Corel PaintShopPro XI and two copies of Corel Snapfire Plus. The retail value of these two prizes is $110 each or $220!

Corel Paint Shop Pro XI
NEW Corel Paint Shop Pro Photo XI builds on the core values set forth by Paint Shop Pro users themselves: easy-to-use yet powerful tools designed with the photographer in mind. Not only does NEW Paint Shop Pro Photo XI improve on existing features, it also incorporates all-new, one-of-a-kind enhancements including a fully-integrated photo organizer -- giving users a single application that covers their workflow from start to finish.

Filled with one-of-a-kind photo tools sure to please even the most discerning photographer, Corel® Paint Shop Pro® Photo XI is the ideal choice for people who want extraordinary photos. With a built-in Learning Center to help first time users get started, it's the easiest way to get professional-looking photos - fast!

Corel Snapfire Plus
Snapfire Plus picks up right where Snapfire leaves off, from editing and organizing photos and videos to creating scrapbooks. Share photos and videos using 100s of creative templates or make entertaining Snapfire Shows - the best way to share groups of photos and video clips. There's even one-click photo fixes, retouching tools, effortless organization, and automatic backups of your photo collection, making Snapfire Plus the easiest way to work with digital photos.

Prize No. 2 is generously donated by uber-talented designer Trish Jones. Trish is giving away a $15 gift certificate to her store to each of the grand prize winners.
