The Kingsleypark Giveaway Competition - Results!

Well the tension was high today at Kingsleypark Manor. And no, it wasn't due to a certain tennis match. Oh well, never mind Andy Murray, there's always next year.

No, the excitement was due to the grand draw at the conclusion of The Kingsleypark Giveaway Competition which was announced last week. Many thanks to all those who left comments and extra special thanks to those who pimped the blog on their own blogs. 

Special mention must also go to Anne of the Anne's Attic blog who, despite challenging the painting machine that is Ray of the Don't Throw a 1 blog to what promises to be a dramatic painting challenge show down (read all about it here ), offered to give her chance in the draw to Ray. Will it have been enough to secure Ray one of the coveted Prizes? Read on MacDuff.

First prize to be contested was the "The Battle of Hastings - The Fall of Anglo-Saxon England" by Harriet Harvey Wood
No spreadsheets or dice rolling for me to ascertain who the winner of this book. No, I had something much more practical - cue the "Hand of Catie" -
And the winner is Seb, of the Back to the Minis blog
Next prize to be drawn for was "The Emperor's Last Victory"  by Gunther Rothenberg and the winner of this book......
Is Tim, of the Fidus et Audax blog
Finally, we had the Lloyd Clark book - "Crossing the Rhine - Breaking into Nazi Germany 1944 and 1945 - The Greatest Airborne Battles in History"
So many congratulations to the winners, commiserations to those who didn't win, but many thanks once again to all those who took the time to enter.
If the winners could comment here with their e-mail details I can e-mail them for their snail mail address and get the the prizes posted off to them.

  3. Congratulations to the winners. Catie is so much cuter than a pair of dice and better qualified to pick the winner.

    Now I hope Ray noticed that I very publicly and very kindly gave him my draw so he could win the Hastings book. While I think it may surprise him, I doubt that he will be moved into showing me mercy!!
