2nd - George Hunter - a subscription to SeeYou, Aerolack, G Dale's book 'The Soaring Engine'

4th - Nils Wedi - large model glider

The How / Why award was given jointly to Alex O'Keefe and Andy Monk for flying the week in the K21s - they received subscriptions to S&G
And last but by no means least, the Good Spirit award was given to Ashley Birkbeck for carrying on despite unwelcoming landouts and other misfortunes, he received a copy of G Dale's book.
