Well there you have it, a big congrats to all the winners (not @RoninWC, clearly proving quantity over quality wins every time.)
@Stargazer you can tell everyone you have something in common with Lisa Carrington and Samisoni Taukei'aho, you are all 2 time winners of a Fernie/Sportie....
A big thanks to @Duluth for allowing this to happen again this year after a false start earlier in the year. Its been a tough year again for most of us here, the Fernies were an attempt to add some cheer and laughs, often at my expense.
Happy the 2nd time round made it to the end even though it didnt go as originally planned.
..kinda hoping to bring back the glory days of past Fernies....there was at least one of you that was a fan...
Lets all hope 2022 will be a better year, a possible return to some sort normalcy.
A year of less pandemic shit, better times with work and family and where friendships can survive or maybe begin again..
No apologies for how weirdo this is going to turn out.
Merry fucking Xmas...
Can one of the mods be kind enough to pin this please, you can unpin the other threads..ta
nice little distraction Virg well done
hey i won one!!
be churlish of me to not acknowledge those i beat, so, to whoever else was nominated
also, i say this every time. Now that we have this whole sub-category, we should have a thread for 2022 nominations. Post and thread of the year, as well as the gifs and memes (and hottie?) will be way better if we can nominate as we go
If it's any consolation I think that I just won an award for not posting.
Not quite sure how to take that...
Have a good Christmas guys. I might be back a bit more next year but I do better in awards if I'm not here so will have to see.
...though i cant believe they actually made @MajorRage a mod.
Sits back, pours a whisky ...
I view it as a compliment that @Virgil holds this point of view.
More a self deprecating comment on who gets nominated as a mod and disbelief thereof ...
Fernies and Sporties..and the Winners are...
