I have just emailed my entry over, but didn't spot the 100 word limit until just now! :? I have gone over slightly with a couple of entries - will this disqualify these entries? If yes, please let me know and I will edit them down

Apologies to everyone on the 'subscribers' list as I seem to have inadvertently sent an email to everyone on it! :oops:

Many apologies - I meant to just send an email to Steve and not entirely sure how I managed to include everyone! I'll get the hang of this new-fangled technological wizardry on of these days . . . :roll:

Delighted to have been declared the overall winner, especially in light of the other excellent entries.
However I will take some time out, before I consider self-referral to Dr Munt. This is partly because I feel a bit of style does not necessarily indicate leanings towards any form of psychosexual imbalnace, but also I think Dr Munt himself may get his kicks from such consultations.

Just noticed the Churchill salute article has gone by unremarked on.

Excellent article Kel. Well researched and nicely written.
Perhaps more sports should have such a background.

For some reason the email notification went into my spam folder :( Thank you, Muba for alerting me to this article and well done, Kel. A fascinating read.
