I have to admit I like this way of competing. I hope this kind of energy can be carried over to the next Thunderdome (This is my first by the way). There were a lot of good entries and some that I thought could have done a little better. Congragulations to everyone who submitted a piece, good luck!
For those who entered but didn't submit, you should be ashamed. Maybe next Thunderdome the people on the reserve list should finish pieces as well so that when people bail out at the last minute or don't show up their pieces can fill the empty spot. I'm sure this idea has already been stated before but I feel bad for those who wanted to enter and couldn't get in on time.
