Happy New Year everyone. Park your X Wings and take a seat as we gather for the launch of our 2030 Winter Olympic Games logo poll. Just a reminder, this is an actual war zone, so keep your lasers and light savers handy. And rug up - it gets to -60c when the sun goes down. You sure don't wanna be caught out in that. Baron is selling wampa skin rugs and jackets for those who came unprepared - best prices this side of Mos Eisley, and an extra 10 per cent discount if you order his book as well (apologies if I left you holding a crate of smog masks, Myles). Speaking of Mos Eisley, a big hand to the Mos Eisley Cantina Band for our opening number. Anyway let's get down to business. We gather here to decide our winning logo for the 2030 Winter Olympic Games. Thanks to all entrants... well, all six of you... for taking the time to submit your works. Those who've been following may notice that option D is a late, as yet unseen, entrant. We have woohooitsme83 to thank for that. And I've taken the liberty of deciding that mr.bernham's Winter A design from his own poll is his designated entrant in this vote. If he has any complaints... tough! Anyway, with only a neat half dozen final entries, it's a bit superfluous to go through a semi final short list stage. So, let's get directly onto the final rounds and standard IOC voting procedures. The rules for this stage are: This voting round will be open for (approximately) 24 hours - it will close after 7am, Sunday January 3, Sydney time (8pm Jan 2 GMT). Voting will now be conducted in rounds until one entry has an absolute majority and is declared the winner. In this and following rounds, the logo with the lowest number of votes will be eliminated at the close of the poll. Vote in the poll for your favourite logo. You have ONE vote, so make it count. Your vote is public and can be seen by all. Entrants MAY vote for their own logo if they wish. Votes are valid if cast by members of GamesBids as of December 1 2015 with a bona fide posting record. I will rule on the validity of any suspicious or disputed votes, or who constitutes a bona fide voting member. I will not vote in this, or any subsequent rounds, unless a tie-breaker vote is needed. Be fair and sportsmanlike, this is meant to be fun and the entrants all deserve RESPECT. I guess that's it. Engage hyperdrive and I'll see you on the other side!
