Here it is, loyal Entertainment Guide readers, the long-awaited results to Northfield’s Best of 2010! Our dedicated team of vote counters was wowed by the number of responses we received, but not surprised by the varieties of winners you found for each category.
It confirms our belief that Northfield is a talent-filled town with delights to be found around each and every corner. Though some categories were close, a winner shone through in each and we present them here, with the steady runners-up in italics just behind. Looking at the field of choices, one thing became quite clear to us: the true winner in this poll is the town of Northfield. Congratulations to everyone involved, and here’s to another year!
Rob Schanilec and his team at the Northfield Entertainment Guide are gearing up for the 2011 best of Best of Northfield straw poll, an annual collaboration with Locally Grown. See the table (PDF) for past categories and the winners.
The gang at the NEG (Rob Schanilec and Abby Erickson) has spoken: “Here are the results of the Northfield Entertainment Guide and Locally Grown readers’ poll of the Best of Northfield (4-page PDF). Hundreds of ballots and one hands-down winner – that would be you for having such great stuff to choose from! So take a gander at our readers’ picks and get out there and enjoy! And make mental notes for January 2010 when we’ll do it again.” (Update 1:45 PM: Audio of KYMN show discussing the winners added.)
It contains the long-awaited announcement of the winners and runners-up of the Best of Northfield 2008 (4 page PDF excerpt). The intro text reads:
We put it out there and you picked up the bait. Here are the results of the Northfield Entertainment Guide and Locally Grown readers poll of the Best of Northfield. Hundreds of ballots, more nominees than you can shake a stick at and one hands-down winner – that would be you for having such great stuff to choose from right here in River City! Now take a gander at our readers’ picks and get out there and enjoy! And make mental notes for January 2009 when we’ll do it again. Congratulations!
BAMG head honcho Rob Schanilec will be on KYMN 1080 AM radio at 12:30 pm today to announce and discuss the results… but you read it here first, of course, as we were partners with the NEG on this project.
I plan to have some photos later today.
In the meantime, feel free to discuss the results here. Moderate levels of gloating and whining will be tolerated.
