    Adventureland Challenge...Excitement gone Bad

    Well, I just looked at the list of who made it to the second round and I was excited. As I scrolled thru, I saw my name, Scott Osborne listed. I was pumped. Then, upon further review...

    17) Matthew Osborne / Washington, DC
    18) Scott Otis / Ocoee, Florida

    DOH!!!! My eyes had played a trick on me. That is my excitement gone bad. Anyway, good luck to these two who have a butchered version of my name!

    Maybe next time, it was fun though, right?

    Disney rocks, Walt was a genius.

    j_scott_o,

    As half of that elation then deflation, I would like to apologize for your excitement gone bad.

    Thank you for the well wishes.

    otisney

    P.S. I'm curious to know who got in for quick entries and who got in by lottery drawing. (Or is that irrelevant?) Lou?

    I'd take the cutoff time and a list of the questions with answers. I'm pretty sure I got them all right, and got them in very early (submission email was sent at 10:41pm), but my name is nowhere to be seen...

    I absolutely did have fun getting the answers. Some I knew, some I had to look up. But, very educational.

    Actually, I made a very similar mistake to the one you did. I skimmed through quickly in my initial excitement, spotted my name, and went "Yippee!!!". Stopped, collected my breath, read through again to double-check, and saw that while my name WAS up there, it wasn't for the 25 moving on to round 2. I can't complain though... I still won something (thanks so much to Lou and all the sponsors). But for a moment there, I thought I was still in the game for the BIG prize that we all wanted to win oh so very much.

    Congrats and best of luck to the 25 who really did move on.
