Trying hard to win ... 2001

Triumphant Victors!


We do hope everyone who took part enjoyed this year's Yuletide diversion. Congratulations to everyone who sent in right answers, and commiserations if you knew the answer but just missed the getting a prize because the folk named below were so quick on the draw, or if you didn't quite read the question

So here are the names (and the predominantly Stateside origins!) of the magnificent thirteen who led the field: 'first in' got first choice of prize, 'second in' got their highest choice still available, and so on: since competitors were invited to specify the prizes they favoured, a very good proportion got high-position choices.
