Yep, there were other prizes too....I also won the stuff you named in the "Things that go bump" Contest. But Karen started Engineering Investigations with a big prize of a Scope, which unfortunately I DIDN'T win... :-((

Karen did give out some other prizes. Remember the "Things that go Bump" edition? A hat, a TI watch, and a check. So maybe you were right to start with Bryan.

"You'll recall the inaugural edition of Engineering Investigations had scores of cool tales in which we awarded small, individual prizes.
