We have a winner! That is awesome. Jigsaw logo and all. I remember that contest. My team decided to hit up as many business conferences we could find across 2-3 casinos. I believe the team that won (yours) did so by going to several FedEx/UPS shipping desks inside resorts and asking for all the business cards they had.
I also remember bringing them back and the Jigsaw staffers began entering all the cards into the database. It must have taken hours!

Actually we went to card printing places. I sent two of our team out, and they came back with 2 back-packs full..
As I recall, I thought that like Willy Sutton ("why do I rob banks? - Its' where the money is"), where are business cards from? The printers, of course...
I think our total was something like 11,000 with the next closest team at 900! I beleive they put the numbers on a bar-chart on the screen, and we were "through the roof"
Good fun all around...Too bad it wasn't iPads, or laptops that year......
