Congrats on the win. That Strowger stick was a great find!

I have to say I am a little surprised we only got 25 voters. We have 2371 members. I realize not all will be active posting members but that is really disappointing.

A lot more  people view the topic than vote vote.
The FOTM contests for 2020 had  19-28 voters per contest.
