Well done Mikey - a deserved award for a groundbreaking concept...
...Hard lines Grimer - next year Froggatt will be the one to beat!
Brilliant. Congratulations to Stephen and Mike. I'm pleased for John Harlin III winning the history prize too.

....and Glen Denny the Mountain image prize; that book is on my Christmas list...
Wahey - does that make my autographed copy of Deep Water worth something - could be the next Extreme Rock if the Rockfax guys destroy all the files!
Well done Mikey - will you be out celebrating tonight in Wareham, or are you still putting up Christmas Lights?
He's in Canada to pick up the prize! Arrived 3 hours before the ceremony!
Brilliant news though, and incredibly well deserved when you consider the vast scope of the book. Also great to note what good shape UK guidebooks are in - prize winners for two years on the trot and two finalists again this year.
Big thanks from all who helped with the guide and made it all possible, esp Alan and Mark for their dedication to the project. All good fun...
Mikey rrr ;-)
