Hey all, have a request (ran this by Doug for approval). But first some backstory. I'm sure many of you know of Wes Shank, famed movie memorabilia collector and Caretaker of the original "Blob" prop (also a film collector as well). Wes sadly passed away last August, to the shock of his many fans and friends. I am friends with his stepson, Kyle, and was notified this past week of an upcoming award being presented in the "Hall of Fame" category from Rondo Awards. Kyle asked if I could spread the word, to get Wes' name on the ballot.

This is what Kyle sent me, which was sent directly from David Colton, head of the Rondo Awards:
--------------------------------------
"The Hall of Fame category is a write-in so we hope you will participate when the ballot is finalized for voting starting on Feb. 24 (hopefully). We will email you a ballot then."

David Colton (taraco@aol.com) / rondoaward.com
--------------------------------------
So get the word out that folks need to contact David and ask that Wes' name be submitted for an award. THEN --- ASK TO BE ADDED TO THE MAILING in order to vote.

Thanks for the chance to post this and honor Wes!
