>Every year the White Camels are presented for service to the Perl
>If you look at the previous winners, you'll notice that these are

> chances are that Jay walked you through the process).
>Some of these people may be well known, like Allison Randal or Randal

>We'll be receiving nominations until June 21, 2009, by midnight, but
>don't wait up or you'll forget. Do it now!
