I put all 14 of the Porpoise competition entrants into a saucepan and the winners (in alphabetical order) are as follows:
Conratulations to the five of you. Your Porpoises will be on their way as soon as I get your postal addresses. I must add that my saucepan lottery to determine the winners was carried out in an entirely fair and honest manner – the fact that 4 of the winners were the first 4 people to post really was an entire co-incidence. There really were 14 pieces of paper and you really were thoroughly mixed and mingled. I suppose I should really have had a neutral observer but then you’d have had to wait a while longer.
If you didn’t win and are in the UK you can still order a copy of Porpoise very easily by sending a pound coin and a stamp as explained here. If you’re not in the UK and therefore have no access to a pound coin but would still like one send me an e-mail and I’ll talk to Si and see what we can do.
