Okay, so here are the rackets in alphabetical order. Please do not edit your post after you submit your guesses. Winner will be announced on Sunday, October 21, 2007. Have fun! :grin:

Who was closest? :) And we don't get another shot? No runner-up prize? :( ;)

samster

If no one matches up completely, the closest person will get the prize. Second place player (I am not sure exactly how I will be able to determine this yet) will get a runner-up prize of this:

BTW Look at Post #41, it seems that LanEvo only mixed two spots up, whereas you mixed up 3.

The problem is determining who was the closest fairly...

I knew someone would complain at the end of the day. Just can't please people these days.
