I think I’ve made you all wait long enough now. There are a few announcements at the end of this post, but we’ll get to the results first. As always, the sleepers are in italics. This month Pat used his 2 sleeper option so he has 6 starters.

Pat takes April! But, was is enough to take this year’s title?
|GSG Fantasy Snowfall 2013 Standings|
It was, by 5.35 inches! In a season in which seemingly big leads were overcome monthly, it is rather fitting that the final big lead was overcome as well. Congratulations Pat, you’ve won GSG Fantasy Snowfall 2013! There’s a little donation waiting for you. Those 2 statements may or may not be related to each other.
Now for the announcements.
First off, we are excited to bring Fantasy Snowfall back for next season. It will once again, be a four month event, but the timing will be altered. Next season will run from December 1st through March 31st. So the draft will be held in mid to late November.
Secondly, I will not be a participant next season. I will still be involved with Fantasy Snowfall as an administrative role, updating the stats, running the draft and so forth. But in interest of fairness, I should not be a participant for as long as we continue Fantasy Snowfall. So that means we’ll need someone to take my spot in the contest. We have a possibility out there, but we’ll wait for next season to see how that pans out before making an announcement.
Third, we are going to expand the contest to 4 participants. How we get those other 2 people is yet to be determined. However, we may very well end up making it open to the public. If you would like to participate in next year’s event, leave a comment! We’ll keep you in mind for next year’s contest.
And finally, this is not Fantasy Snowfall related at all, but I thought I’d give it a brief mention while there’s some interest in the site this season. So, it’s some shameless self promotion. I will be participating in a video game event in early November, called Extra Life. Proceeds from my page are going to the Upstate Golisano Children’s Hospital in Syracuse, NY. While the event is almost 6 months away, donations are being accepted right now. Click here for more information. Thank you everyone!
Thanks to all who have checked out Fantasy Snowfall 2013 and we’re looking forward to next season! Well…maybe we’ll enjoy warmer weather first.
