Wow.  I'm a winner!  Even 2nd place is winning!
And a prize!  Hmmmmm, what will it be?

Quite a large number to reach, 500.  A testament
to a well-run website that achieves a nice balance.
The Steam Forum lights up my day.

Thank you,
Wayne

Thanks Everyone for your kind Comments.

I have been in contact with the four prize winners and have collected their mailing details.

Hopefully, each of the winners will post a video of their prize.

To recap, here are the winner:

1. First Place: Nick

2. Second Place: Wayne @komet163b

3. Third Place: Tony Bird

4. Fourth Place: Dennis @Scorpion2nz

All of the winners had at least 100 Posts on the Forum.  There will be a Grand Prize Drawing once we hit 1,000 Members and everyone that has at least 300 posts at that time will be included in the drawing.  So, stay tuned.

Here's to a 1,000 Members!

Regards,
Charlie

Happy Day in Brooklyn....

 Well, my prize arrived today and it was a surprise,
a Jensen #30.  Well packed, thank you Charlie for the
award contributions.  Gil, thank you for the contest.
I'm quite pleased.

  I took it apart and then sealed the sightglass parts.
I'll give it till tomorrow to cure and then give it a
steamup.  I've added some pix...

The third (Tony) and fourth (Dennis) place winners’ prizes have not yet been shipped.

I will get them in the mail this week.

Apologies for the delay.

Hi,

I have to admit the first I heard of this thread was when I got an email from the very generous Charlie about a week ago.  I will certainly report and video what ever Charlie is sending me. As I told Charlie it was our very lucky day the email arrived; as on the same day between us my wife and I won £75 from our Premium Bonds.

Take care and stay safe hopefully for not much longer.

Tony.
