Welcome to the 2015 Whiffies Award Show
« on: February 21, 2015, 12:07:28 pm »
The 2015 Whiffie Awards Show

The lights dim, the audience settles down and your host, tc2324 appears stage left and addresses the crowd gathered seated in front of him…..



Ladies and gentleman, members of the jury,…….   Ooops!,   …. wrong speech …..,   but just for the record…., that money was `resting` in my account.  :wacko:

Moving on…, ah.., here we go……..,

The road has been a long one, the models and ideas tremendous in their application, but finally we have reached that point of the year again where we all find out what the public voted as their best of the best What If subjects.

As always the Academy has been impressed with this year’s selection and quality and would very much like to thank all those that nominated, contributed and voted so that this year’s awards ceremony is as exciting as previous years.

Anyway, enough of the gibberish from me and let`s move on to the first category……..,
