Again, my apologies.
Don't apologize! You guys put on this contest in good faith that the manufacturer would come through. It is not your fault that they didn't come through (in a timely manner).

But it is nice that you care enough about your members to take steps to prevent this in the future

Received it today, HWC is great, powercolor not so much, TBH I won't be supporting powercolor in the future after their antics, somewhat bitter sweet more on the bitter side.. End of story.

Again thanks to HWC , to powercolor .

Yeah, thanks to HWC for holding contests for everyone. It's unfortunate that this delay did happen, but stuff happens. I guess I can't complain about getting a free card, really.

Staff turnover does happen. It's still free. Waiting sucks, but at least it showed up.
