And the winners are:

It's interesting each year to see whose replies drop through our letterbox first. This year though we're going to have to announce it twice! Already we've received some online BGC payments for draw tickets (& donation) and the first prize goes to:

Dave & Pat Hinchcliffe - closely followed by St John (Singe) Powell - thank you.

We await with baited breath for the letters to drop in...

Rick,

Your air-mail letter is probably already in Oz, but of course it'll have to make the last thousand miles or so by kangaroo mail :)

Interested to hear who overseas is first to get theirs. :roll:

Hi Bob,

mine was in the letter box when I got home at 1730hrs. That was an awful lot of postage you had to use to get here by Qantas/donkey.

Donation and ticket money in post tomorrow. Promise

Would like to think that if I won it, in absentia, the prize would be donated by me to the collection.

Arnie :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D
