Congrats to all the winners of these fine products. 2011 was quite a year for THPA. Newcomers offering up their products fresh out of R&D and familiar faces battling it out with their proven winners, with some very interesting results. 1st, 2nd, or 3rd they are all winners, and I urge everyone to try these products.

Say, Boss, can you put up some numbers for us? Like how many total entries, which catergory had the most entries, fun stuff like that? It's always interesting to hear some numbers.

Yeah that would be good to know but I think if I remembered correctly someone asked last year and THP said no?

I understand the curiosity.

No numbers. If I release info on the most popular categories by number of entries, I don't want other winners to feel they didn't have as much competition etc. A win is a win here. Let's celebrate the winners.
OHH YEAHHH!
