Congratulations to all winners, nominees, and many thanks to all builders who supply this exciting event with breathtaking submissions/works! It was a tough choice, as always, with so many good builds/creations to choose from!

Furthermore, many thanks to tc2324 for setting this all up and keeping the Academy on line.  ;)

Very cool, and also so happy that two of my builds ended up with Whiffies, in this tough field of contenders!  :lol:

Has anyone seen my trousers?
Last time I remember having them was when Brad C and I were "river dancing" on the bar accompanied by Old Wombat and Dogfighter Zen playing a ska version of The Stripper on guitar and didgeridoo.
The suit's a rental and if I can't find them i'll lose my deposit.

Not sure if they were your trousers, but a pair were seen flying from the flagpoles outside the academy after the event.  A left trouser to one side of the portal, and a right trouser to the other.  A puce coloured pair of braces was dangling from the left trouser.

Zen, you didn't drink all of that medronho, you slipped me a 5 centilitre container of it to see it would etch unobtainium.........I've tried it and the metal was only slightly marked, but the little engineering works in the next village reckons it's superb for descaling boilers.

Well, that's good news! I'm glad i gave you some, i was having a hard time believing i managed to down that 0,5L that was left in the bottle after the shot rounds were done... and i also did find my headache to be a bit more tolerable than the last time i had that stuff... :rolleyes: ;D
