Happy Sunday everyone, and welcome to the home stretch of the Making the Team: 2008 first contest. Once again the endurance community, their friends, family (and still a few stubborn alter egos) have spoken, and we have narrowed the field down to the top four candidates. One of these four, depending on your vote, will be the next fully sponsored member of Team Evotri.
We know it's been a lot of work not only creating the videos, but rallying the troops thus far, and we once again appreciate and applaud everyone's efforts. Even though not all videos will advance at this time, we certainly welcome and encourage contestants to throw their swim caps back in the water for the subsequent Making the Team: 2008 contest(s).
And now, are you ready for your finalists? Their voting tallies have once again been reset to zero. As in the first two rounds, please be sure to base your voting on how thoroughly each individual addresses the following questions:
1. How will you benefit the team if you're chosen? What are your personal attributes?
2. How have you, and how do you plan to give back to the endurance sport community? Nothing is too insignificant, list it all.
3. Why tri? Please be as creative as possible in explaining why you are passionate about triathlon and endurance sport?
Final round voting will continue until 11:59 PM PST Friday, February 29, 2008. In addition to all first-time voters, if you voted in round one or round two, you may vote again at this time. Please be advised only one vote per person will be counted. Do not vote multiple times, for multiple candidates or from multiple email addresses. The single video of the featured four that has received the most unique votes will be the next fully sponsored member of Team Evotri, and will be announced on March 1, 2008.
To ensure tally accuracy, please write the name of your candidate and "Final Round" in the subject line of your email to firstname.lastname@example.org. All videos are featured in alphabetical order.
Thank you for your help, and good luck to everyone!
