OK Kristin,

I think that works fine.  At first I thought, "How come there's no room at 6?" but then saw from the link that you were talking about the Lab Report!  I hadn't thought about that particular constraint.

- That time slot -- the end of the Icehouse prelims -- also seems quite appropriate.  I'll be in the middle of a stint in the Booth, but I think they'll excuse me so I can run up and help present, or at least watch, the awards. 

- With the awards at 4pm, the ballot closing time could be at 3pm, but that's when I start my stint at the booth -- which is fine, if someone else is free and willing to do the final tally of the votes -- 2 someones, actually, to double-check the counting.  If we don't have 2 volunteers for that, let's push the closing time to 2pm, or maybe even noon, the start of the Icehouse prelims.  Volunteers?  Other thoughts?

- The name is something we'll need to discuss again.  "Ice Awards" and "Fan Awards" are both fine, and both have their pros and cons.  I'm partial to "Apex Awards", since "apex" is the term for the tip of a pyramid; that just might fit in the Report.  What do the rest of you think? 

At any rate, thanks to you and Andy for being so supportive.

Ok, we got it onto the schedule, but we put it at 4 not 6

Here is a view of that spot on the printed schedule:

There was no way to fit it in at 6, and actually the end
of the Icehouse prelims, when the finalist medallions are
being awarded just before the start of the finals, is a
great time to award this extra pyramid award.

There is very little room, the best name we came up with
was "Ice Awards" - does that work?  Or would you prefer
"Fan Awards" or something else that fits in this tiny space?

The signs you make to put on your literature table can call
it something longer - but this is all the space available
on the printed schedule on the Lab Report.

I will be sending the file to the printer on Monday, so
let me know this weekend if you want to change the name.

Thanks everyone for organizing this fan award!
