On 25 December HTBS announced a Caption Competition for an old Victorian Holiday card with a coxed ‘dog four’. The HTBS readers thought well and hard and soon entries came in, either in the Comment Section or via e-mail to HTBS editor. When the competition ended on 31 December, 14 people had sent in 25 entries. Thank you all very much for your entries!
During Sunday, the four-person strong jury sent in their verdict and counting together the points (1st place got 5 points; 2nd place got 3 points; and 3rd place got 1 point) it stood clear that the winner was:
Richard Anderson, with 8 points, and the caption: ‘You’re going well – I can sniff the next crew now’.
Then we had three people sharing the second place, with 5 points each:
Tom Weil: ‘Four more and we’ll qualify for the K-9 event.’
James Sciales: ‘Which one of you lads took the bow ball?’
Number off from bow……
