Big ups and thanks to all involved who gave their time and afford to make it all happen, these things don't go smoothly unless you have a dedicated group of people bringing it together.

Cheers

C'mon lads; spill the beans. Who got naked & rowdy etc? After-party at Roches? Any famous judges? I was unable to make it this year. I decided to give the Pavilion Steward a well earned break.

I'm curious to know how many entries there were in each category. Still happy enough to claim a place in a group of 1 though :D
