The double decker bus was full at 5:30 and had to make a second trip for the rest of the people. The banquet hall was full.

There was a projection screen set up which worked great when announcing the winners of the events. As the person was named, a photo of their car with them in it was displayed. This was a great way for everyone to identify the person and their car.

The 2 panoramic photos were also displayed, along with a selection of photos taken over the past few days. The panorama photos were ready for pick-up at the banquet which I believe is a first for Mini Meets. People were able to take them home from the meet. It also seemed to inspire more orders too. For your information, John Goolevitch used a Canon Digital Elph S400 4 Megapixel camera, using 4 photos across the field, then stitching them together using Photoshop. This proves that a small camera can be deceiving

The buffet dinner was excellent, as well as the desserts. Many door prizes were called out in between the awards.

There was a special roast of 4 people presented as a court process. The judge found everyone guilty.
