1st Colin Kemp (43)

2nd Annal Chopra (40)

3rd Steve Paxton (39)

4th Peter Smith (38)

5th Jim Kirby (38)

6th Les Miller 38)

7th Gordon Lamb (38)

8th Stuart Reid (37)

Steve Paxton also won the £60 bonus ball prize, thanks to a recount and Simon Anthony's "random number generator".

The prize for the most festive atire went to "Big Santa" Paul White, who won a tin of Quality Street. 

Following the presentation of prizes by Chairman Tony, members collected their bottle prizes and many stayed for the AGM (notes to follow later).
