  1. There was a Eurovision theme to the Reykjavik music. The national language of Kenya is Swahili. You might think Swahili has never been heard at Eurovision. You'd be wrong, this was robbed in the semis in 2011: Welcome to the place where the Olympic Stadium would be if this comp ever became real, the Moi International Sports Centre! Hopefully this is where the 2027 or 29 World Athletics Championships will finally arrive in Africa. For now though, we're unveiling our winner. And we have someone very special to do it. Taking time out from a UN summit to be with us for this, it's the 44th President of the USA and the world's most famous Kenyan, Barack Obama! Barack: Good evening friends. It is a huge honour to be here to launch the long-awaited & much overdue first Olympic Games in Africa. This is a part of the world where my wife & I have done a great deal of work on education & development, and so it is a great pride for me that this is the place for such a momentous... I NYOOOOOO IT! I TOLD YOU! I TOLD YOU! AH, THIS IS YUUUUUUGE SO YUUUUGE THE COVFEFE IS YUUUUGE THIS IS OFF THE CHART SO BIG SO BIG BIGGER THAN MY *bundled off stage by security* Barack: As I was saying before I was so rudely interrupted by The Thing - it is my pleasure to announce that the winner of the 16th gamesbids.com Summer Olympic logo comp is... GLACIB! Yoshi: Thank you Mr President, apologies for the interruption. It went the distance but we got there in the end, with the final result being A: 6. B: 7. In the last round, it went to the wire all the way to the very end, but that one vote margin means we do have an outright winner at last & that winner is @Glacib! Congrats on your second summer title in a row. Thank you to all entrants and voters, especially to @JDCLauronwho came so close. It has once again been wonderful to see such interest, both submission and voters - you've all made this comp successful despite the lack of Olympic interest Obviously, once again the biggest thanks go to the wombat king @Sir Rols for the grids, the Photoshop pics of Barack and Greta, part of the presidential intro tonight, the advice and generally you know, making it all possible. Congratulations to @Glacib & @Bear , our 2023 champions - if we do the 17th comp in the same way next winter, we will hopefully see you all again then. Until then, the comp sleeps tonight...
  2. Phew! Made it back to Kathmandu. Barely... Okay over to you Bob. Sigh. I didn't really wanna touch Bob Seger. But have you actually heard any real Nepali pop? Not to mention I ended up scrambling to get this all ready when I thought I'd have another day or two... or three. The sherpas had to carry me running the last stretch of the way. Oh well... Namaste! Mesdames et Monsieurs, Ladies and Gentlemen, Your Holiness, Welcome to Kathmandu city's Durbar Square for the announcement of the winner of the logo for the Kathmandu 2030 Winter Olympic Games. And a red letter day it is. For the very first time in GamesBids comp history we have a winner in a single round of voting!!! I'd been lulled into a false sense of security. When I look in this morning we had 16 votes (17 soon after) with none having a majority. I was set to be eliminated with a single vote (thanks Gotosy - no thanks to the rest of you... how rude!) and round 2 was set to proceed. But then, on closer examination (after prompting) it was revealed two of the votes couldn't be counted. Both of them (Daliaroze and Kfir for logo A) failed to meet elbility requirements - Dalia joined up just today, and Kfir on Monday, both well outside the december 1 2016 eligibilty cut-off. Which left us with 15 votes valid, and one entry with eight of them - over the 50 per cent mark. To make the announcement of who that is, I'll hand over to His Holiness the Dalai Lama - 1976 Olympic gold medalist in fencing Thomas Bach has been demoted to Envelope Girl. Over to you Dalai, err, lama, err, Your Holiness... Dalai Lama: Namaste. Om Mani Padme Hum. Thank you Sir Lols. I am very very much joyed by the karma of this event. May Peace and Dharma rain upon the winner of this competition, and all of the participants. For those who not winners, may Karma reward and bless you in your next reincarnation. For the winner, bask in the glow of the Buddha. And that winner is...... Paul! Sir Rols: Thank You Your Holiness. And Congratulations Paul! Another notch on the belt. Well done. And thanks for your support of my efforts, in public and behind the scenes. A class act. So that's two from two from this logo season - can you make it the clean sweep? We'll see. Okay, so official results from our first and only round of voting. Logo A (Glacib) on 2; Logo B (JO2024) on 2; Logo C (Paul) on 8; Logo D (Thatsnotmypuppy) 2; and Logo E (me) on 1. Sigh! I expected to be eliminated, but on just one........?????? Okay, so that wraps this round up. Far quicker than I expected. The next stage, Hamburg-Havana, will start in a day or two (I may take a rest day tomorrow). Stay tuned. For those making the trip to Hamburg for the launch, Martin (member Citius Altius Fortius) has some beds and sofas free at his place. See you there. Namaste and Peace be with you!
