Congrats to all the winners and all who were nominated.

Thanks again to TC for keeping my crazy idea alive and running 11 years after I came up with the silly idea.  I know how much time he has put into this and I really appreciate his dedication to keep it going.

You all better watch out for next year as once I get caught up on review builds I actually hope to finish a few of the whiffs I have started and maybe a few other ideas.

Thank you, tc, for all the excellent work you put in to bring this all together! (Even if you did start partying a touch early. ;)) :bow: :bow: :bow:

Personally, I'm in a state of shock. Three awards when there are such excellent entries? Seriously overawed! :o

Thank you all very, very much, guys! :bow: :bow: :bow:

To all the other awardees; well deserved, each & every one! :party: :party: :party:

To all the entrants; excellent work right across the board! :cheers: :cheers: :cheers:


Right! Where's the party? :party: :drink: :wacko: :police: :blink:

Does anyone have any objections to me putting the winners up on Twitter?

I propose to give it 24 hours then do it if nobody's objected by then.

Does anybody need the kiss of life?  Does anybody need oxygen?  Does anybody need my careful ministrations?

Congrats to all,  wonderful models!  Congrats to TC for another wonderful show!  Loved the aerobatic displays!   :thumbsup:
