Firstly, I’d like to extend a special thanks to /u/bostonphototourist for helping me to create what I hope was a really fun PIF for everyone. If it reminded even one extra person to vote yesterday, I will consider it an unmitigated success. I hope everyone is as pumped as I am for the release of Vespers. The rest of us will just have to wait a bit longer to order ours.

Without further ado, the results from the Vespers PIF:

The PIF officially closed at 3PM EST on the 7th of November. A random integer between 1 and 10,000 was selected. The drawing selected the number 8,289.

This means that the winner of the PIF is /u/phasetophase with his impressively close guess of 8,303. Congratulations sir!

Honorable mentions go to /u/Hyvasuomi79 and /u/shredsofmetal as they were both within 100 as well. You guys are all pretty good at guessing numbers. Has anyone considered a group lottery effort the next time the Powerball jackpot gets up there?

/u/phasetophase, please PM me ASAP with your shipping info. I will endeavor to get everything to Will quickly as he indicated that he could be able to ship as soon as tomorrow. Again, congratulations on winning and I hope you post lots of pics and reviews to generate that sweet, sweet karma!
