And the winner is…


CRM calamityBest Caption 2008

It was a tough choice this month, but the managing editor's vote swung it for Garry Damant with:

Matthew Corbett arranges some naked groupies for Sooty & Sweep!

He gets to choose either a bottle of Italian red wine (Villa Antinori Toscana 2003) or a bottle of organic white (Nelson Sauvignon New Zealand 2006).

Look out for another caption competition at the end of July!
