I think the Bush Turkeys (Sean Dooley, Peter Lansley, Paul Peake & Andrew 
Stafford) also deserve special mention and thanks for their honesty in owning 
up to their excellent score of 203 as opposed to the announced 213! If not for 
their insistance on a recount we would not be basking in glory as we are now.   
The main thing is we had fun, though. I hope the other teams also did & I 
really hope to see a few more teams in next year's event.
