Ok, everybody, we’re finally winding down here at Power Points. Here are the results for most of the cities, and I’m going to give it a week for remaining cities that have not arrived to get me their entries to be considered for the grand prize. I no longer have access to dad’s package area at his apartment complex, so between that and the USPS slowdowns it’s possible that the entries are still out there or have been returned to the paper. If you get entries returned, please mail them to me at my home in Denver (address below) and not dad’s place in Greenwood Village.
For newspapers: if you’d like to continue to run Power Points as your weekly contest, please feel free to do so in perpetuity. If you do want to and would like the editable file for the different weeks I’m sure I can dig it up somewhere, just email me.
Thanks for all your support over almost 3 decades. We always had fun with the contest and it kept the lights on for our family for many, many years. We appreciate all the players and newspapers who made dad’s idea for a small-business into a reality.
MAJOR UPDATE: I am so sorry to report that my beloved father and the Commissioner of Power Points, Tim McGovern, passed away on Christmas Eve. This was unexpected and happened very quickly. As his son, I have been around the contest all my life and so I will be able to complete the season, report the results on this website, and pay out the winners. However, between dealing with dad’s affairs and doing my day job, these results will be delayed; very likely into the new year.
If at all possible, please send your entry forms to:
1415 N. Washington St.
Denver, CO 80203
As he was a former journalist I know my father very much enjoyed working with all of you. Thank you for your patience, and if you have any questions you can either call me at 720-309-8701 or email me at Matthew@ColoradoHouseMajority.com
