A surprise awaited
both Mark Hutchinson and Paul Lay at the recent Atari Show in London
where we presented the trophies for the Readers Awards for 1986. Jim
Short, unfortunately, couldn't make it from the far North (Bonny
Scotland) so his award was sent through the post (I wonder if it has
arrived yet!). Nobody knew who had won as issue 27 had not been
published at the time so a couple of very surprised visitors to the
Show were persuaded to step on the PAGE 6 stand for some piccies.

Paul Lay has just been announced as
the winner of ANALOG magazine's $5000 ST programming
contest! Congratulations Paul. Ain't that just dandy!
accepting his award said he would have shaved if he had known!
And so to the acceptance speeches. The following
letter came from Paul Lay and the sentiments are, I am sure, echoed
by our other two winners who also asked for their thanks to be
passed on to the readers.
"My deepest thanks to all those readers who voted for
Munchy Madness in the Readers Poll. I hope that everyone had as much
fun playing the game as I had writing it! It really was great to
receive the award and know that people do appreciate all the work
that goes into a program like Munchy Madness. The awards are an
excellent idea, and being lucky enough to receive one makes all the
hard work seem so worthwhile."
Who will be the winners next year? Will
it be YOU? Only if you send in that program or article you have
thought about writing. Share it!
