    Solution: Santa Claus is coming to town

    Winner: Scott :yahoo:

    Commiseration's to Williamsfan and km keeper who came so close.  :good:

    Note: I'm sorry I cannot contribute to any therapy sessions as a result of the advent competition.  :DD

  •  :yahoo:  Well done Scott.  :good:  :yahoo:

    Mind you if your acceptance speech is anything to go by I wonder how much you'll need to spend on therapy to recover?  ;)  :D

  • Congrats, Scott! Well played.

    I'm sure you & the family will enjoy the racing. (and I'm sure we won't hear about it when the young'uns out race you  ;)  )
