Where's Gunrock!?

We had a great year playing the ‘Where’s Gunrock?!’ contest!

We had almost triple the amount of people play with almost double the amount of winners, 11 of you were 100% correct in your submission. I enjoyed all the Google maps that were made, the kind words that were shared, and the one staff member that replaced a caricature of himself in the exact same place Gunrock had visited! Thanks Carlos, I appreciated the laugh!

Alas we could only have one winner, congratulations Colin Goulding!  Colin had the lucky grand prize winner raffle ticket, a Southern California Vacation, from Get Away Today. We were able to surprise our other 10 winners with prizes from our TGFS vendors. Thank you AAA, The Walking Company, Mary Kay, Western Health Advantage, Sprint, Six Flags Discovery Kingdom, and the Monterey Bay Aquarium!
