I hope this note finds you well. If you recall, we met at the Jamboree back in July. I was the one with the Happy Salmon.


I believe you were involved with the fishing crew during the Jamboree. I apologize for not knowing 100% - my computer crashed soon after the Jamboree and I lost many of my notes from my wonderful time there.

 Either way, I recall you being a fan of Happy Salmon and so I wanted to write you a quick note with some amazing news. Happy Salmon is up for The Toy Association’s Toy of the Year (TOTY) Award. The TOTY Awards are the “Oscars” of the game and toy business. Happy Salmon is up for “Game of the Year.” This is the first TOTY nod for our company in our 13 years of business, so as you can imagine, we are very excited. As the “father” of Happy Salmon, I am ecstatic!

 This year’s TOTY finalists were selected from over 600 nominees by a committee of retail buyers, journalists, bloggers, academics, and game inventors/designers, and are being voted on by both these industry experts and by consumers. And that is why I am reaching out…Can I burden you to take 1 minute and vote for Happy Salmon? The voting site for “Game of the Year” can be directly access here: http://www.toyawards.org/toyaward/custom/GameToy.aspx. Please note that you will have to enter your name and email, but that is only to validate the vote and to enter you into a sweepstakes to win all the games in the category. You will not be spammed (The Toy Association takes that VERY seriously.)

 I would love your vote, and it would be awesome if you can spread the news to your fishing and scouting crew too. Whatever you can do is greatly appreciated.

 Thanks, I still talk of my time at the Jamboree. I had such a great time meeting the kids, the leaders and staff. It was amazing!!

 All my best,
