Oh deari, it appears my discussing my Antipodean Sporrans has stunned my fellow whiffers!   :wacko:

I'm sure that  "...wee, sleekit, cowran timorous beasties..." will be acceptable if kept under close control.     


 Given that it was the celebratory night of one of Scotland's great poets last night, I wonder how many inebriate verse declaiming Caledonians will have been led away by the blokes in white coats to the SERIOUS BURNS UNIT.


(Sorry about that, I'll awa' and dree ma ain weird  somewhere else)

How can they be serious if they are inebriated?   I thought serious Burns were only allowed to utter their verse while sober?    ;)

Polls will be up and running on Sunday 3rd February from approx 10pm GMT.

They will then be closed on Sunday 17th February at approx 10pm GMT.

The Awards show will then take place on Sunday 24th February at approx 9pm GMT just before that cheap knock off Oscars event starts.

Any questions, let me know.


Cheers mate  :thumbsup:

If they do, I can bring along a couple of spare pairs of ear defenders.

Will the "Whistling White  Wheelbarrows" A W  Argosy aerobatic squad be appearing again?

No, no, we have somethin' betterrrr this year!  We have direct from downunder, the Roulettes with their world famous rolling wheel display spun in their PC-9s!  They are a delight to the eye and the ear, albeit it a bit expensive on the pocket!   :thumbsup:

Hi all,

Due to the tech issues yesterday  :banghead:  the polls will be posted tonight and will be ready by 10pm GMT.

We will lose a day of voting and the closing schedule remains the same.

Now then....., who put PwC in charge of our server yesterday??  :rolleyes:

Your meeting with Mr J Daniels is well deserved. An award for "Selfless Service to Whiffery" could be in the offing!

That, my friends, was NOT easy! :blink:


Congratulations to everyone who was nominated, you're all winners. Unfortunately, to paraphrase Mr. G. Orwell; everyone of you is a winner but some are (going to be) more winner than others.


Thanks, tc, for hosting another great Awards Show! :thumbsup:

Quite a selection!
I turned voting into a sprint, on the theory that people form their impressions and opinions in the first few seconds, anyway.

I'm sure I cast one too few vote in some category. Let's be careful out there: make sure you don't miss anything.

a big thank you to TC for sorting everything  :thumbsup:

and Gents I do believe, it was harder to pick favourites this year, due to the fact that everything was just that good   ;D :banghead:
