And that wraps up another year of the MocOlympics! I just want to take this opportunity to toss out a few “thank yous”.
To the judges. Annie, Luke, Xeno, David and Ian. Thank you so much for all your hard work and dedication during these past few months. Your input and collaboration was invaluable and I truly couldn’t run a contest of this scale without you guys! You’ve been great players in the past and were great judges for these games. Thank you so much for everything!
To BrickNerd and Thoy. I cannot truly express how much your donations/sponsorship means to me (and the recipients of the prizes of course). You guys dug deep to help support our community and that means more to me than you guys could know. MOCpages is my “home” and to be able to give back even a bit of the support this community has given me is amazing and YOU guys show what true community support is! Thank you so much!
To Nick, congratulations on your win! Your name is now along side of those like Dave Sterling, Dave Kaleta, Sven Junga, Heath Flor and Leda Kat (what a list huh?). Thank you so much for your determination and excellence in building throughout the contest.
To Matt, Stu and Blake. What a great final four guys! Thanks for kicking it up a notch and keeping the fires burning in the final rounds!
And to all the players. From the bottom of my heart, thank you each and every one! This is the BIGGEST Lego contest every year and it wouldn’t be so without ALL of your efforts! You make me so proud to be a part of a community that comes together for such a wonderful turnout every year!
MOCpages… you are AWESOME!
Thank you everyone and we’ll see you in March for the 2014 MocAthalon!
Its been and an honour and a pleasure to be a judge this year. Chris, you deserve a huge thanks too - these games are your baby and really are a jewel in MOCpages crown! Congratulations to Nick, and all the amazing builders who have taken part, even if you made judging a dilemma on more than one occasion. Permalink
It's been a fantastic few months, everyone really put forth their A game and delivered truly excellent builds. Congratulations to Nick for taking the trophy after such a long fight to the top, and to all the other competitors who stuck around for the long haul.
It was an honour to judge the MocOlympics this year, and I'd like to thank Chris for the opportunity and for all the time and effort you spend making these games so fun and rewarding.
Speaking of rewarding, thanks to Thoy and Tommy for their generous prize donations, it really gives some builders that extra bit of motivation.
So, happy holidays, and I look forward to the MocAthalon and next MocOlympics! Permalink
I see it as a privilege to participate in this wonderful contest!
Thank you so much everyone, this is why Flickr with never beat MOCpages! This contest as become the heart of MOCpages, and hope to come back again next year, more skillful than ever!
Thank you Mr. Phipson!
Thank you Chris! Without these MOs, I wouldn't have a clue as to what my abilities were. And seeing the potential has made me want more. For that, I can never thank you enough!
And, of course, thank you MOCpages! Your support makes this competition truly the wonder that it is. The pool of talent here is unrivaled and to be included is an honor. All you guys and gals rock! Permalink
I can't really say anything that hasn't been said by other people, but I enjoy this contest the two years I've been in it. It's great fun, (even if I wish I hadn't entered when I get an undesired category) and I can't wait to do it again next year. Congrats to all the finalists, huge THANK YOU to Chris for organizing, to the judges for bearing with us through our complaints and nearly-missed deadlines, to Thoy and BrickNerd (Tommy) for donating all of the epic prizes, and finally, good luck to everyone who plans on entering next year. I know I do! :D -David. Permalink
Firstly, congratulations to Nick on his victory! I was completely blown away by all of the Final Fours' MOCs! Also, a big thank you to Mr. Phipson for running this contest, to the judges for donating their time and energy to judge, and to the sponsors. You guys are all amazing and I had a blast competing! I hope to see you all again next year! Cheers! ~Mark Permalink
Hey, all. I'm not coming back yet, but I just wanted to congratulate Nick for winning and I wish that I could be a part of this wonderful contest, but I know that my obligations come first. Signing Off until June 2015, David Wang. Permalink
Congrats to Nick, and thank you to all the great judges. I know someone either above or underneath this comment will surpass what ever praise I could write, so I'll just leave it at this: See y'all in 2014! Permalink
