Contest draws 1,268 entries and plenty of water cooler chat!

name it play it logo REDFINWe knew we’d have some entries when we created the new Name It, Play It contest but when the entries climbed to over 1,000 we were pleasantly surprised.  The contest also generated a lot of buzz.  We heard neighbors talking about it in the fitness center, it was discussed on the golf course and we even heard chatter about it in Publix.  And then there were the emails…let’s just say some people were passionate about their entries.  In the end, the entry with the most votes (591 to be exact) was Kingpin which cleverly speaks to Arnold Palmer’s nickname as The King and, of course, the golf pin.
