Hammondsport is leading with 21.9% of the vote, but we're getting nipped at the heels by some little town in California with 21.7%!

Cool!

Long day, just got home, need dinner!

Thanks to all you guys doing this. It's the only small town nominated in NYS, and it is a very cool place. It's one of the reasons Gail & I so enjoy the ACBS meet there.

Voted for Hammondsport, but I've been to Beaufort and that is not a bad option either.

Cool! Thanks Jesse. It's not really for me, but I think having a small town, especially one I enjoy so much, in our state nominated to be coolest small town is worth supporting. Pretty unscientific way to vote, but hey, whatever!

Yeah, but it's a NE thing John. I don't want people stealing my idea and voting more for that place out in CA! Trying to keep it local. Bottom line is I really don't give a hoot, it's just fun to do. If Hammondsport wins, housing will probably bump up some and cost Gail & I more to retire there! :)

You got it Ron. I sent out an email to a bunch of non-FG folks last night asking them to just hit that site and vote for Hammondsport. Maybe I helped crash their server? Whatever. Kinda cool I think.

Two great choices. Need to get some Glassics to Beaufort (pronounced Bo-fort, the town in SC is Bew-fort)
