I know you guys live RAGBRAI year around, but I’m just a normal person who tries to keep RAGBRAI in perspective until outdoor temps are at least double-digits. I saw the media announcements around the route party and thought, “ooo, I should get in on that route contest!”. I guess it’s really not that big a deal, but you closed it a week ago? Why? Knowing that the mail postmark deadline was also last Friday (and therefore you can’t know that you’ve even yet received all responses), and the winner isn’t announced until 2/10, I can’t fathom what the reason could be.
