THE WHIRLIGIG COMPETITION RESULTS

The Dutch Postal services department in Den Bosch must have had a 
hard  time processing all the entries for  the  competition.  The 
postman  came with the biggest bag they have and dumped it on  my 
doorstep with a very annoyed look in his eyes.

When I came home that day I couldn't believe my eyes.  My  little 
room was completely stuffed with envelopes,  cards,  letters  and 
other stuff concerning the competition.  From all over the  globe 
(believe  it or not,  we even received some replies all  the  way 
from Malaysia and the Virgin Islands) people sent their stuff.

After  opening  about approximately 1,267 envelopes  and  reading 
an equal number of replies, it was time to draw the lucky winners 
from  the  831 correct ones.  After feeding my grandmum  a  whole 
bottle of some alcoholic spirit, (so she was completely drunk and 
thus  completely  impartial) she managed to  pick  five  winners. 
After  sending  her  to a rehabilitation centre  I  examined  the 
letters she had handed me:

Timothy Penn        Boardman (Nebraska), USA
Jacques Haitkin     Orly, France
Fred Liemer         Amsterdam, The Netherlands
Günter Bunzen       Frankfurt, Germany
Erik de Jager       Vaals, The Netherlands

All   winners  should  by  now  have  received  their   copy   of 
'Whirligig'. Have fun playing!

P.S. Exaggerating is one of my best virtues.....
