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.....
