Pattern
Each attending member will get to vote for their favorite Morris Minor on show on Show Day (Sunday).

The winner will get to keep the trophy for the coming year returning it by whichever means so that it can be presented to the next winner.

Simple rules apply.

1) Member means anyone who attends the meeting and is a registered member of the MMO with a username.

2) No car can win two years in a row but members showing different cars can.

3) Votes should be made and handed to the organiser (ie me) by noon on the day of the Sunday show.

4) The winner will be presented with the trophy at about 1pm.

5) In the event of a tie the Judge (ie me) will have the casting vote.

6) Any questions will be ignored and anyone throwing their dummy out of their car will be disqualified..!

So get polishing your nuts. ;)

Big Trophy built on a paving flag by the looks of it.

One of the rules should be can't win it if you can't fit it in your car and take it home. :D

Not far from the truth there Sean. :lol:

The car is a 1:26 scale Saico Morris Minor on a tile of Guiting Gold, a beautiful golden honey Oolitic Limestone from the North Cotswolds, all off set with a black aluminum plaque traditionally engraved for a lasting finish.

Only the best... ;)

Horace took 1/3rd of the votes cast winning by just 1 vote. A number of the others also attracted votes.

Well done Pete on your win and to Stevie for pushing him so hard. Thanks also goes to all those who took part. ;)

The rules state Horace can not win next year so get polishing everyone... :D

I was delighted to win the trophy, particularly as it was voted for by club (by club I really mean forum :D ) members.
Horace has been fully cleaned ready for next outing - only took 2 days :D

Cheers.
