Miners Days Contest Winners

by Yaz Shanndar

(Quantar Core) Although the asteroid cooling problem seemed to overshadow this year’s holiday, there were a couple of activities.

The first one was an opportunity for pilots to vote for a new Quantar award — the Shahir Assad or “Shining Lion.”  The award is for lifetime achievements in service of Quantar.  Shahir Assad - medal1031As with the Solrain Hall of Fame, the voting ended in a tie between Tezrend and Ambrosius, so a randomized choice was made — and the winner was Tezrend (aka Tesrend)!  Votes were also received for tom-t and the late FS-Falcon.

The other holiday contest was QuanTrivia where there were four entrants getting all five answers correct and winning a Cesium Medal, a CM4 and 1 million credits!  Congratulations to the winners:  Hammer-BS, Gander, ML-Death and Clanlord!

The awarding of medals and prizes should be completed over the next few days. Continue reading
